Abstract:Introduction :Neoadjuvant chemo-radiotherapy has the advantages of decrease local recurrence rate , deceasing toxicity , down_staging the tumor and minimize rate of mobidity .Methods: Patients were divided into 2 groups in accordance type of preoperative Therapy ,Group 1: included 30 patients comprised those who had colorectal carcinoma with laparoscopic intervention without neoadjuvant therapy,Group 2: included 30 patients comprised those who had colorectal carcinoma with laparoscopic intervention with neoadjuvant therapy, This study included patients with colorectal carcinoma were admitted to Zagazig University Hospital & Gastrointestinal surgery center ( Mansoura university).
