Comorbidities are associated with poorer quality of life, functioning and worse symptoms in the 5 years following colorectal cancer surgery: Results from the ColoREctal Wellbeing (CREW) cohort study
Psycho-Oncology,Volume 0, Issue ja, -Not available-.
CONCLUSIONS: A total of 74.4% of colorectal cancers diagnosed before age 50 years are left sided. In light of recent changes to screening recommendations, distribution of disease in young patients is important to both provider and patient education and decision-making.

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 http://links.lww.com/DCR/A930.
CONCLUSIONS: In our population-based cohort of HIV-infected subjects with long-term follow-up, the risk of progression from anal intraepithelial neoplasia III to anal squamous cell carcinoma was higher than reported in other studies and was not associated with the receipt of anal intraepithelial neoplasia III treatment.

BACKGROUND: Although elderly patients constitute most of the patients undergoing surgery for obstructed colon cancer, available data in the literature are very limited. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the management and outcomes of elderly patients treated for obstructed colon cancer. DESIGN: This was a multicenter, retrospective cohort study. SETTINGS: Between 2000 and 2015, 2325 patients managed for an obstructed colon cancer in member centers of the French National Surgical Association were identified. Data were collected by each center on a voluntary basis after institutional approval. Bow...
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.

CONCLUSIONS: Accuracy of CT scan for identification of pT3/4, pN+, or extramural venous invasion was insufficient to allow for proper identification of patients at high risk for local recurrence and/or in whom to consider alternative treatment strategies. Locoregional overstaging and understaging resulted in inappropriate treatment strategies in
CONCLUSIONS: Coffee intake after elective laparoscopic colorectal resection leads to faster recovery of bowel function. Therefore, coffee intake represents a simple and effective strategy to prevent postoperative ileus. See Video Abstract at http://links.lww.com/DCR/A955. TRIAL REGISTRATION: clinicaltrials.gov identifier: NCT02469441.
ConclusionsThis case highlights the importance of genetic testing with rare malignancies because the full scope of phenotypic sequelae for known hereditary syndromes has not been mapped.
Exercising good judgment can mean the difference between life or death. Life can be unforgiving of the choices we make. As we all know, many life events are beyond our control and understanding. But, there is much we can do to shape our paths to a brighter destination. Consider some of the choices listed below […]Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com.

ConclusionsOverall, our findings have revealed a critical role of miR-552/SMAD2 cascade in modulating cellular response to 5-FU chemotherapy. miR-552 may act as an efficient mechanistic link synchronizing dMMR and 5-FU resistance in CRC.
