Rectal Cancer, Version 2.2015. J Natl Compr Canc Netw. 2015 Jun;13(6):719-28 Authors: Benson AB, Venook AP, Bekaii-Saab T, Chan E, Chen YJ, Cooper HS, Engstrom PF, Enzinger PC, Fenton MJ, Fuchs CS, Grem JL, Grothey A, Hochster HS, Hunt S, Kamel A, Kirilcuk N, Leong LA, Lin E, Messersmith WA, Mulcahy MF, Murphy JD, Nurkin S, Rohren E, Ryan DP, Saltz L, Sharma S, Shibata D, Skibber JM, Sofocleous CT, Stoffel EM, Stotsky-Himelfarb E, Willett CG, Gregory KM, Freedman-Cass D Abstract The NCCN Guidelines for Rectal Cancer begin with the clinical presentation of the patient to the primary care physician or gastroenterologist and address diagnosis, pathologic staging, surgical management, perioperative treatment, posttreatment surveillance, management of recurrent and metastatic disease, and survivorship. The NCCN Rectal Cancer Panel meets at least annually to review comments from reviewers within their institutions, examine relevant new data from publications and abstracts, and reevaluate and update their recommendations. These NCCN Guidelines Insights summarize major discussion points from the 2015 NCCN Rectal Cancer Panel meeting. Major discussion topics this year were perioperative therapy options and surveillance for patients with stage I through III disease. PMID: 26085388 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Nomura M, Takahashi H, Fujii M, Miyoshi N, Haraguchi N, Hata T, Matsuda C, Yamamoto H, Mizushima T, Mori M, Doki Y Abstract The T3 subdivision has been reported to predict prognosis in rectal cancer. However, few studies describe a correlation between T3 subdivision and prognosis in colon cancer. The current study aimed validate the correlation between the invasion distance (ID) beyond the muscularis propria and prognosis in colorectal cancer. The present retrospective study included 148 consecutive patients with pathologically confirmed T3 colorectal cancer, who underwent resection between January 2008 an...

Conclusion: Biofeedback therapy was superior for objective improvement of pelvic function to observation in LARS. It can be considered to induce more rapid improvement of major LARS. PMID: 31620393 [PubMed]

Authors: Kye BH, Lee SH, Jeong WK, Yu CS, Park IJ, Kim HR, Kim J, Lee IK, Park KJ, Choi HJ, Kim HY, Baek JH, Lee YS Abstract Purpose: The optimal treatment for synchronous liver metastasis (LM) from colorectal cancer (CRC) depends on various factors. The present study was intended to investigate the oncologic outcome according to the time of resection of metastatic lesions. Methods: Data from patients who underwent treatment with curative intent for primary CRC and synchronous LM between 2004 and 2009 from 9 university hospitals in Korea were collected retrospectively. One hundred forty-three patients underwent...

AbstractNodal involvement is a significant prognostic factor in rectal cancer and difficult to assess preoperatively. An understanding of the patterns of nodal spread from different regions of the rectum can assist in this process and is essential for the purposes of surgical planning. In this article we define patterns of spread to mesenteric and pelvic sidewall nodal subgroups and discuss the importance of accurate anatomic localization of nodes for the purposes of staging and surgical planning.

ConclusionRACRS is safe in the treatment of patients with stage I –III colorectal cancer. Oncological outcome did not differ between RACRS and LCRS groups. RACRS had lower conversion and intra-operative complication rates.

AbstractTotal mesorectal excision (TME) is currently recognised as the standard of care for patients with rectal cancer. Complete TME is known to be associated with lower rates of recurrence. Robotic and endoscopic TaTME approaches are reported to offer excellent proximal and distal rectal dissection into the TME plane, however, combining both approaches in a hybrid procedure could potentially optimise visualisation of the dissection plane and confer improved circumferential and distal margin rates. The aim of this study was to analyse the feasibility of a hybrid robotic abdominal approach with conventional TaTME for recta...

AbstractBackground/ObjectivesMetabolic syndrome (MetS) has become a major public health problem. However, few studies have examined the impact of MetS on the postoperative complications of colorectal cancer and the conclusions remain controversial. The present study aimed to investigate whether MetS, as defined based on visceral fat area (VFA) instead of BMI or waist circumference, would predict complications after surgery for rectal cancer.Subjects/MethodsWe conducted a retrospective study of patients who underwent surgery for rectal cancer at our department between January 2013 and August 2018. Univariate and multivariat...
