Spin in articles about minimally invasive transanal total mesorectal excision: an assessment of the current literature
ConclusionWe have shown that spin is common within studies assessing TaTME for rectal cancer. Despite a lack of support from study results, in the majority of studies authors concluded that TaTME is safe for use in rectal cancer. Readers of study abstracts describing new techniques need to be cautious about accepting the authors ’ conclusions, especially in case series and observational studies. (Source: Colorectal Disease)

Redo Ileal Pouch ‐Anal Anastomosis: Outcomes From A Case Controlled Study
AbstractAimTo assess short ‐ and long‐term outcomes of redo ileal pouch‐anal anastomosis (r‐IPAA) for failed IPAA, comparing them with those of successful IPAA.MethodThis was a case ‐control study. Data were collected retrospectively from prospectively maintained databases from 2 tertiary care centres. Patients who had a r‐IPAA between 1999 and 2016 were identified and matched (1:2) with patients who had a primary IPAA (p‐IPAA) according to diagnosis, age and body mass in dex.ResultsThirty ‐nine r‐IPAAs were identified, including 16 transanal and 23 abdominal procedures, and were matched with 78 p‐IPAAs...

Patients with extensive regional lymph node involvement (pN2) following potentially curative surgery for colorectal cancer are at an increased risk for developing peritoneal metastases – a retrospective single institution study
AbstractObjectivesThe goal was to determine the incidence and clinical behavior of peritoneal metastases (PM) in patients with colorectal cancer undergoing potentially curative surgery, comparing patients with extensive loco ‐regional lymph node involvement (pN2) with those who have serosal involvement (pT4), a known risk factor for developing PM.MethodsA retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database was performed. All patients with pT4 and pN2 were included in the analysis. The diagnostic criteria were the finding of PM during surgery with biopsy confirmation as well as imaging features suggestive of PM ...

Primary versus myocutaneous flaps closure of perineal defects following abdominoperineal resection for colorecal disease: a systematic review and meta ‐analysis
AbstractBackgroundPerineal wound complications after abdominoperineal resection (APR) have become a major clinical challenge. Myocutaneous flap closure has been proposed in place of primary closure to improve wound healing. We conducted this comprehensive meta ‐analysis to evaluate the current scientific evidence of primary closure versus myocutaneous flaps closure of perineal defects following APR for colorectal disease.MethodsWe systematically searched the Medline, Embase, PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane Library databases to identify all relevant studies. After data extraction from included studies, meta ‐analysis w...

Robotic versus laparoscopic rectal tumour surgery: a cohort study
AbstractAimThe aim of this study was to compare robotic and laparoscopic rectal surgery in perioperative data, short ‐term outcome and compliance to the ERAS (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery) protocol.MethodsIn this cohort study, 224 patients scheduled for rectal resection due to cancer or adenoma between January 2011 ‐January 2017 were evaluated. In the first time period, January 12, 2011 to April 23, 2014 47 patients (46% out of 102 patients) had laparoscopic surgery. In the second time period, April 24, 2014 to January 30, 2017 72 patients (59% out of 122 patients) had robotic surgery. Perioperative data and short...

Prolonged hospital stay and readmission rate in an enhanced recovery after surgery cohort undergoing colorectal cancer surgery
ConclusionIn patients with colon cancer, older age and conversion to open surgery were associated with prolonged hospital stay. In patients with rectal cancer, CCS  ≥ 2, TME and conversion were associated with prolonged hospital stay, and a preoperative ASA score ≥ 3, TME and a duration of surgery ≥ 300 min were associated with readmission.
