Rationale: Oxaliplatin is a key part of the standard treatment for colorectal cancer which is formally contraindicated in patients with severe renal dysfunction. Here, we investigated a safe and efficient dosing schedule of oxaliplatin in folinic acid, fluorouracil, and oxaliplatin (FOLFOX) regimen by monitoring total and free platinum concentrations in plasma. Patient concerns: A 47-year-old female with chronic hemodialysis was diagnosed with left-sided colon cancer and underwent colectomy. One year later, she was presented with omentum metastasis and needed further treatment. Diagnoses: The computed tomography (C...

Conclusions: The synchronous approach of both the primary tumor and liver metastases in colorectal cancer is a possible therapeutic method, even in the case of major hepatectomies. PMID: 31658344 [PubMed - in process]

Visualisation of lymph nodes and blood flow with near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence DaVinci® imaging system is a recent development. Herein, we present an improved robotic modified complete mesocolic excision (mCME) technique using indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence. Before ...

CONCLUSIONS: Because of the association between FAP or colon cancer with multifocal CMV-PTC, we confirm that an analysis of APC gene mutation and colonoscopy should be carried-out in these patients when multiple thyroid tumors are found. PMID: 31469036 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Intestinal malrotation is an embryologic anomaly rarely presenting in adults especially in association with colon cancer. Fully laparoscopic colonic resection has not yet described in literature for adenomas in malrotation. Preoperative assessment of vascular anatomy by computed tomography is considered mandatory to perform safely laparoscopic surgery.

CONCLUSIONS Emergency endoscopic placement of an intestinal stent is safe and effective in the treatment of patients with acute intestinal obstruction caused by colorectal cancer. It is also a safe and simple procedure for patients receiving advanced palliative treatment, which greatly improves their quality of life and is easy for patients' families to accept.
