This review presents the concept of complete mesocolic excision (CME) for colon carcinomas. It focuses on an anatomical preparation in embryological preformed planes. Different tumour locations require individual operative strategies. In contrast to other malignancies, lymphatic metastasis in colon cancer is initially based on fixed rules. The extent of lymph node dissection and mesocolic resection for each tumour depends on the location of potential tumour deposits in lymph nodes along supplying arteries and aberrant lymph node stations.
