Defunctioning loop ileostomy for rectal anastomoses: predictors of stoma outlet obstruction

ConclusionsThis report investigates significant predictors of stoma outlet obstruction in laparoscopic rectal cancer surgery for the first time. In laparoscopic procedure, stoma outlet obstruction should be particularly considered in obese patients who have especially thick subcutaneous fat of the abdominal wall.

This article describes the TaTME technique per se, the fields of application and the current data situation. Practical recommendations for the safe implementation of this operative procedure are also presented. The TaTME procedure is reserved for highly specialized colorectal centers with a high volume of rectal cancer cases and appropriate expertise in minimally invasive visceral surgery.Die totale mesorektale Exzision (TME) ist der Goldstandard im Kontext der multimodalen Behandlung des Rektumkarzinoms im mittleren und unteren Drittel. Der transanale Zugang ist eine Ergänzung des zunehmend laparoskopischen Vorgehens...

AbstractAlthough the application of laparoscopic rectal surgery has been widely accepted by accumulated evidence, it remains technically difficult in some cases of obesity, narrow male pelvis, bulky tumors, or involvement of adjacent organs. After robotic rectal surgery has been covered by the health insurance system in Japan since April 2018, we have employed robotic rectal surgery for an increasing number of cases by taking advantages of its 3D vision and wrist function. When a colorectal cancer involves the urinary bladder, the surgical treatment of choice is an anterior resection with en bloc (partial or total) bladder...

ConclusionTaTME seems to be more difficult in males but not in obesity, benign prostatic hypertrophy, low rectal cancer, pT3-T4, tumor size>5  cm, or neoadjuvant therapy. TaTME could be considered an alternative surgery for low rectal cancer in the presence of these factors affecting laparoscopic TME.

ConclusionsVery low energy diets result in a clinically significant reduction in mesorectal fat with a lesser change in total pelvic fat, suggesting that very low energy diets may be useful for preparation for pelvic surgery in the obese. The distance from S1 to the posterior rectum correlates well with mesorectal reduction, making this a valuable clinical tool when volumetric analysis is not possible.  This analysis is limited to the quantification of the effect of the diet and cannot comment on the safety of this approach before pelvic cancer surgery.

ConclusionsAll surgical techniques for rectal cancer dissection have a role and may be considered appropriate. Some techniques have advantages over others in certain clinical situations, and the best outcomes may be achieved by considering all options before applying an individualised approach to each clinical situation.

CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that this technique is a feasible, safe and valid adjunct to the double staple technique whenever intraabdominal application of the linear staple is difficult or unsafe.

CONCLUSIONS: Adopting these strategies can facilitate laparoscopic mesorectal excision in the obese patient and may reduce conversion to open.

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery in obese patients are well documented in colorectal surgery. However, comparative outcomes among obese patients is not well characterized. Here, we utilize the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) to compare morbidity and mortality between varying levels of BMI in patients who underwent laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection LAPR for rectal cancer.

CONCLUSIONS: A robotic approach during the proctectomy and IPAA offers significant advantages to a laparoscopic approach, expanding our armamentarium of minimally invasive surgical techniques to IPAA.
