Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: To evaluate the predictive implications and prognosis of mucinous adenocarcinoma (MAC) in locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) with intensified neoadjuvant treatment.METHODS: Individual patient data of LARC patients from 3 prospective clinical trials was analyzed. Neoadjuvant treatment regimens comprised chemoradiotherapy (CRT) with fluorouracil (5-FU) or mFOLFOX6, neoadjuvant chemotherapy alone with mFOLFOX6 or mFOLFOXIRI. The postoperative pathological result, local recurrence and disease-fr...

ConclusionsA surgeon ’s intuitive assessment of the difficult pelvis, based on visible MRI assessment, is not a reliable predictor of successful laparoscopic surgery. Further assessment of pelvic volume may provide an objective method of defining the difficult surgical pelvis.

ConclusionsBased on evidence from more than 1.9 million patients presenting in primary care, the findings provide estimated PPVs that could be used to guide specialist referral decisions, considering the PPVs of common abdominal symptoms for cancer alongside that for IBD and their composite outcome (cancer or IBD), taking into account the variable PPVs of different abdominal symptoms for different cancers sites. Jointly assessing the risk of cancer or IBD can better support decision-making and prompt diagnosis of both conditions, optimising specialist referrals or investigations, particularly in women.

AbstractThe aim of this study was to clarify the clinical impact of inferior mesenteric lymph node (IMLN) metastasis from cancer of the sigmoid colon or rectum. A total of 952 patients underwent curative surgery with IMLN dissection for either sigmoid colon cancer or rectal cancer from January 2000 to August 2018. Of these, 26 (2.7%) were pathologically diagnosed with IMLN metastasis. Excluding 1 patient, 25 patients were retrospectively investigated for clinicopathological characteristics and long-term outcomes. Specifically, the clinical course of patients with recurrence was meticulously scrutinised. Of the 25 patients,...

CONCLUSION: It is technically feasible and oncologically safe to perform TaTME in a medium-volume colorectal unit. Patients with difficult pelvic anatomy can benefit by reducing the risk of conversion and margin positivity rate.PMID:34320700 | DOI:10.3393/ac.2020.00941.0134

A 53-year-old male patient underwent an abdominoperineal resection 6 years earlier for rectal cancer developed metachronous carcinoma at the site of stoma. A portion of the colon, including the stoma and the surrounding skin, was resected and a new stoma was created in the transverse colon. Although the occurrence of carcinoma at the stoma site is a rare condition, careful observation for the stoma and colonoscopy for surveillance are necess...
