Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the safety, short-term and long-term efficacy of self-expandable metallic stent in left-sided Colon Malignant Obstruction (MOLC) and right-sided Colon Malignant Obstruction (MORC). Methods: Retrospective analysis of 186 patients diagnosed with Malignant Obstruction in Colon (MOC) who underwent surgical treatment in our hospital from January 2013 to March 2019. The data of each group were collected and compared. Statistical software was SPSS 25.0 and P<0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: SEMS implantation can significantly increase the rate of stoma-free surgery and laparoscopic surgery in MOLC patients, and reduce the incidence of incision infection and anastomotic leakage. SEMS implantation has no effect on the long-term treatment effect of MOC. Conclusion: SEMS is a safe and feasible treatment for MOC patients. For MOC patients, SEMS implantation can significantly improve the rate of laparoscopic surgery, reduce intraoperative bleeding, and reduce postoperative complications such as anastomotic leakage and incision infection.
