Patients having previous abdominal surgery were excluded from LPN and all LPN were performed transperitoneally.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Although the mean operative time was longer in the LPN than in the OPN group (134.4±35.36 (45-180) minutes versus 110.56±35.36 (60-165) minutes; P&lt;0.001), the blood loss was comparable between the two groups (130 mL versus 180 mL; P value is not statistically significant). No blood transfusions were performed in either group. The hospital stay was significantly reduced after LPN compared with after OPN (2.8 days (2-6) versus 6.7 days (5-8); P &lt;0.0002). 2 patients in LPN and 1 patient in OPN had positive surgical margins.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> This study has revealed that LPN is a feasible and safe alternative to the OPN with better surgical outcomes and similar oncological outcomes.</p> <p><em>Journal of Current and Advance Medical Research, January 2021;8(1):70-74</em></p> 2021-03-31T19:32:12+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## A Case Presentation and Treatment Review on Novel COVID 19 2021-04-04T06:46:55+00:00 Ambika Nand Jha Akshay H Shah Upama N Trivedi <p>SARS-COV 2 Is causative agent of COVID 19, just few month&nbsp;ago was foreign to us and now spreading its routes well in India.
