AbstractStercoral perforation of the colon is a rare phenomenon and a potential life-threatening condition requiring acute intervention. A little more than 200 cases have been described to date. The mechanism is not completely understood. In this short communication, we present three patients with a colon perforation proximal to the anastomosis, similar to a stercoral perforation, following colorectal cancer resection with application of an intraluminal device, the C-seal.

Prevention and early detection of treatable medical conditions is an appealing concept. Preventive health care encompasses primary prevention of illness (eg, immunization against infectious disease or adoption of a healthy lifestyle), secondary prevention that involves early detection of latent disease (eg, colon and breast cancer screening), or tertiary prevention that aims to limit disability or improve function for an individual with an existing condition (eg, exercise rehabilitation in chronic lung disease).

This study used colorectal cancer survival data from the Taiwan Cancer Registry database in order to comprehensively analyze age as a prognostic factor. Methods: Survival data were analyzed for 62 060 CRC patients diagnosed with adenocarcinoma, mucinous adenocarcinoma, or signet-ring cell carcinoma of the colon and rectum between 1998 and 2005. The rates of all-cause mortality and CRC-related mortality were determined using Kaplan-Meier analysis, and the log-rank test was used to compare differences in survival between different age groups. The crude and adjusted hazard ratios for all-cause and CRC-related mortalities...

CONCLUSIONS: BRAF V600E mutations were commonly identified in right-sided tumors and showed a high incidence of peritoneal and distant lymph nodes metastases. This subtype of mCRC was characterized by short OS and unique patterns of metastasis. Compared with standard treatment regimens, the FOLFOXIRI regimen had acceptable and manageable toxicities and favorable efficacy on patients with BRAF-mutated mCRC.

I took the super-duper thick yogurt that I made with added prebiotic fiber and made a really delicious and rich chocolate frozen yogurt. Most store-bought yogurt, of course is the outdated and unhealthy low- or non-fat variety, often thickened with emulsifying agents to improve consistency, but damaging the mucous lining of your intestinal tract and encouraging dysbiosis, even if it contains probiotic microorganisms. We can make high-fat yogurt, prolong the fermentation process to further reduce lactose and denature the casein protein, and add a prebiotic fiber such as inulin to increase bacterial counts and increase butyr...
