CONCLUSION: Even if a disseminated site>1 cm in diameter before NACT is invisible during IDS, microscopic disease remains present within it. The appropriate surgical margins for IDS with a favorable prognosis could be secured by resecting a lesion of>1 cm before NACT even if it is invisible during IDS.

Abstract During the last two decades a neoadjuvant treatment concept has been established for an increasing number of malignant tumors of the gastrointestinal tract; however, these concepts are still subject to a constant change concerning the indications and type of treatment. A prime example for this is rectal cancer. The rate of local recurrence in particular was significantly reduced by neoadjuvant therapy but until now it has not been possible to validly show an improvement in overall or disease-free survival. At the beginning of the millennium it was recommended to treat every rectal carcinoma...

CONCLUSION: At 17% of its planned accrual, E5204 did not meet its primary endpoint. The addition of bevacizumab to FOLFOX6 in the adjuvant setting did not significantly improve OS in patients with stage II/III rectal cancer. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: At 17% of its planned accrual, E5204 was terminated early owing to poor accrual. At a median follow-up of 72 months, there was no significant difference in 5-year overall survival (88.3% vs. 83.7%) or in 5-year disease-free survival (71.2% vs. 76.5%) between the two arms. Despite significant advances in the treatment of rectal cancer, especially in improving local contro...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewContrarily to what happens with rectal cancer, the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the assessment of colon cancer has been limited. However, we may witness a ‘paradigm shift’ in the future. Classically, colon cancer has been assessed by computed tomography (CT) which is considered the workhorse for evaluating this neoplasm as it provides insights not only about local and regional disease as well as about distant metastases. However, as the accuracy o f CT is somewhat limited, recent reports about the use of MRI in colon cancers have been published. In this review we will ass...

AbstractBackgroundNAC has an established role in many solid tumours but its utility has not previously been formally evaluated in colon cancer.MethodsPts with CT-staged T3-4 N0-2 M0 colon cancer were randomised in a 2:1 ratio to pre-and-postoperative (NAC/AC) or postoperative (control) FOLFOX chemotherapy. Total planned chemotherapy was the same in both arms, but NAC/AC pts received the first 6 weeks before surgery. Pts with RAS-wt tumours could be subrandomised 1:1 to receive 6 wks panitumumab or not with NAC; if not randomised, CapOx was permitted. The primary endpoint was freedom from recurrent/residual disease at 2 yea...

ConclusionsT3/T4 was the best criterion in terms of diagnostic accuracy. However, in terms of interreader agreement and overtreatment risk, T3/T4 with ≥ 4 cm and T3cd/T4 were better as potential image-based criteria of neoadjuvant chemotherapy for colon cancer.

ConclusionsAlthough liver metastasis should be the first provisional diagnosis in patients with advanced colon cancer, retroperitoneal schwannoma should also be suspected in the differential diagnosis of possible liver lesions.
