Processed Meat and Colorectal Cancer Risk: A Pooled Analysis of Three Italian Case-Control Studies.

Processed Meat and Colorectal Cancer Risk: A Pooled Analysis of Three Italian Case-Control Studies. Nutr Cancer. 2017 Apr 20;:1-7 Authors: Rosato V, Tavani A, Negri E, Serraino D, Montella M, Decarli A, La Vecchia C, Ferraroni M Abstract To add evidence to the limited data available from southern Europe, we assessed the association between processed meat consumption and colorectal cancer risk. We analyzed data from three case-control studies conducted between 1985 and 2010 in various Italian areas, including a total of 3745 incident cases and 6804 hospital-based controls. We calculated odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) by unconditional multiple logistic regression models. The median consumption of processed meat was around 20 g/day both in cases and controls. The OR of colorectal cancer was 1.02 (95% CI 0.99-1.04) for an increase of 10 g/day of processed meat. The association was statistically significant for colon cancer (OR 1.03, 95% CI 1.00-1.06), particularly for proximal colon cancer (OR 1.09, 95% CI 1.04-1.14), while there was no relation with rectal cancer (OR 0.99, 95% CI 0.95-1.03). The OR of proximal colon cancer was 1.38 (95% CI 1.08-1.75) for the highest sex-specific tertile of consumption (>25 g/day for men,>21.5 for women) compared with the lowest (

CONCLUSIONS: Bowel function recovers with time after the restoration of bowel continuity. A short time interval, handsewn anastomosis, preoperative chemoradiation, and ileostomy were significantly associated with poor bowel function or major fecal incontinence. Surgeons should discuss postoperative bowel dysfunction and its predictive factors with the patients. See Video Abstract at

CONCLUSION: In this multicenter study using propensity score analyses, the use of omentoplasty did not lower the incidence or the duration of pelviperineal morbidity in patients undergoing abdominoperineal resection for rectal cancer, and omentoplasty itself was associated with a risk of reoperation.

ConclusionsPrimary tumor location impacts incidence proportions of bone metastasis and survival of both brain and bone mCRC patients. Primary tumor location should be taken into consideration in clinical practice and prognostic assessment.

AbstractBackgroundWe recently reported on a left-sided predominance of colorectal cancers in the young (under age 50). Given the predilection of young African Americans for the disease, we wondered if there may be a difference in the biology of colorectal carcinogenesis between this group and Caucasians.ObjectiveCompare the distribution of colorectal cancer in African American patients and Caucasians under age 50, and describe implications for screening in these groups.PatientsColorectal cancer patients diagnosed under the age of 50 between the years 2000 and 2016. All races other than African American and Caucasian and al...

ConclusionsThe ‘pelvis-first’ approach to proctectomy is advantageous for patients with a highly redundant sigmoid colon. Transabdominal division of the levator ani during APR ensures excellent circumferential margin. Although Lynch syndrome-associated rectal cancer can show excellent response to NCRT,3 patients undergoing watchful delay of surgery require close monitoring and prompt triggering of salvage proctectomy when tumor regrowth is observed.4,5

ConclusionsWe found that higher whole grain intake was associated with lower CRC risk among older US men, but not women. The positive association of gluten intake with the risk of proximal colon cancer deserves further study.
