Influence of Colonic Mesenteric Area on the Number of Lymph Node Retrieval for Colon Cancer: A Prospective Cohort Study
Ann Coloproctol. 2021 Sep 16. doi: 10.3393/ac.2021.00444.0063. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: The minimum harvested 12 lymph nodes (LNs) is regarded as the limit for accurate staging of nodal status in colorectal cancer patients. Besides the association of the lengths of resected intestinal segments and vascular pedicles, the mesocolic mesenteric area's impact on LN count has not been studied. We aimed to evaluate the associations between metric variables, including the mesocolic mesentery area on the nodal harvest.METHODS: All consecutive patients who underwent elective colectomy with a curative intention for colo...

Preoperative Endoscopic Tattoo Marking Improves Lymph Node Retrieval in Laparoscopic Rectal Resection: A Retrospective Cohort Study
CONCLUSION: This study revealed that preoperative endoscopic tattooing was statistically significantly associated with adequate LN retrieval in patients with rectal cancer who underwent laparoscopic rectal resection. Preoperative endoscopic tattooing should be considered to improve disease assessment and avoid stage migration.PMID:34525507 | DOI:10.3393/ac.2021.00458.0065 (Source: Annals of Coloproctology)

Longer Withdrawal Time is Not Associated With Increased Patient Discomfort in Colonoscopy: A Retrospective Observational Study
This study aimed to clarify the relationship between colonoscopy withdrawal time and patient discomfort.METHODS: A cohort of consecutive patients who underwent colonoscopy at a single institution from October 2018 to January 2020 was retrospectively analyzed. Initially, the relationship between the mean withdrawal time for each colonoscopist in no-finding examinations and polyp detection rate was investigated in 2,043 patients. Subsequently, the primary outcome of association between withdrawal time and patient discomfort, as determined by patient questionnaire, was assessed for each examination in 481 patients from the in...

Endoscopic Removal of a Fecalith or Fecomucolith in a Rectal Stump or Pouch
We describe a novel and effective method of endoscopic obliteration and removal where other techniques such as removal during examination under anesthesia or serial enemas have failed. By using a combination of hydrodissection with a saline injector gun and biopsy forceps and a polypectomy snare to break down the fecomucolith or fecalith, this troublesome problem can be resolved endoscopically. Successful removal of the fecalith/fecomucolith and resolution of the symptoms for the patients were achieved. No complications are reported.

This study was a retrospective chart review of patients with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) at Seoul Songdo Hospital between August 2019 and August 2020. Three-dimensional (3D) pelvic floor ultrasound, preoperative anal manometry, and other physiological tests were performed in 78 patients with POP symptoms. We divided the patients into mild prolapse and severe prolapse groups based on the POP-Q. We examined the LAD and MLH areas.

Ann Coloproctol. 2021 Jul;37(Suppl 1):S24-S27. doi: 10.3393/ac.2020.00073.0010. Epub 2021 Jul 27.ABSTRACTSome patients who have undergone preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) following surgery have been diagnosed with late recurrence more than 5 years after treatment, raising questions about the possible benefit extending surveillance beyond the recommended 5 years.

Three-Dimensional Pelvic Floor Ultrasound Assessment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Minimal Levator Hiatus and Levator Ani Deficiency Score
This study was a retrospective chart review of patients with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) at Seoul Songdo Hospital between August 2019 and August 2020. Three-dimensional (3D) pelvic floor ultrasound, preoperative anal manometry, and other physiological tests were performed in 78 patients with POP symptoms. We divided the patients into mild prolapse and severe prolapse groups based on the POP-Q. We examined the LAD and MLH areas. LAD scores were categorized as mild, moderate, or severe.RESULTS: There were 32 patients (41.0%) in the mild prolapse group (POP-Q stage I and II) and 46 (59.0%) in the severe prolapse group (POP-Q ...

Colouterine Fistula Treatment: When the Patient Chooses the Steeplechase
Ann Coloproctol. 2021 Aug 9. doi: 10.3393/ac.2021.00318.0045. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTColouterine fistula is a rare disease that is primarily treated using surgical approaches. Although invasive surgery is controversial in terms of techniques and results, minimally invasive endoscopic treatments have not been widely described. However, because it is rare for these fistulas to close spontaneously, surgical treatment is often mandatory. Appropriate management of colouterine fistula is complicated, especially when the patient refuses surgery. In this case study, we provide the first description of a minimally invasive e...
