Surgical techniques in the management of rectal cancer: a modified Delphi method by colorectal surgeons in Australia and New Zealand

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.

Abstract Overweight and obesity was considered as a risk factor for colorectal cancer (CRC), and CRC development may be due to exposure during one's youth. Metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance seem to play an important role in the underlying mechanisms. Even though several studies indicated the association between BMI at young age and CRC risks, an identified founding is still lacked. Therefore, we conducted a meta-analysis and a dose-response analysis to quantify the association between BMI at young age and CRC risks with relative accuracy. We searched the PubMed, Embase, Medline and Cochrane Library databas...

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...

Authors: Popa A, Georgescu M, Popa SG, Nica AE, Georgescu EF Abstract Steadily, cancer is becoming the first cause of mortality, with over 9 million deaths estimated in 2018. Increasing evidence supports a direct association between obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and cancer, with a higher risk of cancer mortality especially for some of the most common malignancies, such as breast, colon, and rectal cancers. So far, several mechanisms underlying the cancer-diabetes relationship have been investigated revealing dysregulations of the insulin-insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system as the most important parad...

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...
