  • The study observed a significant decrease in the use of the minimally invasive approach after the publication of the LACC trial.
  • Within our population the 30-day major complication, minor complication, and unplanned hospital readmission rates remained stable between the pre- and post-LACC periods.
  • The study observed an increased rate accross the publication of the LACC trial limited to the intra and post-operative transfusion rate.
  • The lack of a rise in 30-day complication rates after the LACC trial publication supports the use of laparotomy as the standard of care.
