Synchronous pathologic findings in patients with colorectal cancer and preoperative incomplete colonoscopy

ConclusionsComplete perioperative colonoscopy in patients with CRC should be performed to reduce the rate of metachronous carcinoma. Postoperative completion of preoperative insufficiently colonoscoped patients is recommended.

Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common causes of cancer mortality in the world. The incidence is related to increases with age and western dietary habits. Early detection through screening by colonoscopy has been proven to effectively reduce disease-related mortality. Currently, it is generally accepted that most colorectal cancers originate from adenomas. This is known as the "adenoma-carcinoma sequence", and several studies have shown that early detection and removal of adenomas can effectively prevent the development of colorectal cancer. The other two pathways for CRC development ...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) ranks second in cancer-associated mortality and third in the incidence worldwide. Most of CRC follow adenoma-carcinoma sequence, and have more than 90% chance of survival if diagnosed at early stage. But the recommended screening by colonoscopy is invasive, expensive, and poorly adhered to. Recently, several studies reported that the fecal bacteria might provide non-invasive biomarkers for CRC and precancerous tumors. Therefore, we collected and uniformly re-analyzed these published fecal 16S rDNA sequencing datasets to verify the association and identify biomarkers to classify and predict colorecta...

Health-Related Complications of Acromegaly—Risk of Malignant Neoplasms Marek Ruchala*† and Kosma Wolinski† Department of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Internal Medicine, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, PoznaƄ, Poland The issue of increased risk of benign and malignant neoplasms in patients with acromegaly remains the topic of debate from many years and was addressed by numerous studies. Many of them have shown increase in the cancer incidence. Among particular types of malignancies, thyroid, colorectal, and breast cancer are most commonly indicated as associated with acromegaly. Single ...

A 67-year-old woman was admitted to our department for one-month duration of asthenia. She was previously operated of upper right lobectomy for a high-grade sarcomatoid carcinoma. The patient was hemodynamically stable. Hemoglobin was 5.4  g/dL, and she was transfused with three blood units. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was carried out and it was unremarkable; a colonoscopy was then performed and a voluminous ulcerated polyp with a large base of implantation of the proximal descending colon was seen and removed without compl ications (Fig.

CONCLUSION: Also in our experience adenomatous polyps play a crucial role in the development of colorectal cancer. Therefore, it seems quite essential to avert colorectal cancers gradually. Colonoscopy is a non-invasive method of diagnosis and a treatment of colorectal polyps. Proper and careful colonoscopy examination is indispensable in the discovery of colorectal polyps and subsequent follow-up. Timely and routine colonoscopy is considered as an important approach for thwarting the development of malignant neoplasms.

ConclusionPatients with SBO and virgin abdomen frequently have a benign etiology. Careful imaging review directed at subtle signs of an underlying malignancy is warranted. If non-operative management is chosen, close follow up is essential and it should include a careful personal and family history as well as updated colonoscopy.

ConclusionDespite the advancement in visualization of anatomy with CT scan and laparoscopic appendicectomy there is still a role for screening colonoscopy in patients greater than 50 years of age with appendicitis particularly if they have associated bowel symptoms or risk factors for CRC.
