Only one procedure was converted to laparotomy due to severe pelvic adhesions. All patients ambulated on postoperative day 1. The Mean time to the recovery of the bowel movement was Two days (1 to 4 days). The mean time to Oral analgesia intake was 1.66 days (1 to 3). The mean time of hospital stay was 5.66 Days (4 to 8). Two patients had complication in a mean time of 18 days after the surgery.

Conclusion: The laparoscopic reversal Hartmann procedure is a safe technique showing promising results but in the hand of trained laparoscopic surgeon.
