Predictive factors of complete pathological response in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer
AbstractPurposePatients with locally advanced rectal cancer who achieve pathologic complete response (pCR) following neoadjuvant therapy have better long-term outcomes and could be spared from the perioperative and long-term morbidity of rectal resection. The aim of this study was to identify factors that predict the ability to achieve pCR at completion of conventional neoadjuvant therapy, therefore determining their suitability for non-surgical management.MethodsA retrospective analysis was performed on data obtained from a prospectively maintained colorectal neoplasia database. Patients treated for biopsy-proven primary ...

Fecal continence outcomes are associated with the type, height, and stage procedure of ileal pouch-anal anastomosis
This study aims to analyze the quality of life in patients with an ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) and to investigate the association between height and type of the anastomosis, the number of stage procedures and age, and the fecal continence outcomes.MethodsThis is a cross-sectional retrospective study in patients who had undergone IPAA between 1992 and 2016 (N = 133). We sent questionnaires to 102 eligible patients (64% response rate). We used the Wexner score to assess fecal incontinence: 0 = no incontinence to 20 = complete incontinence. We used RAND-36 to measure quality of life.ResultsPatients who underwent mucos...

Endoscopic management of postoperative anastomotic bleeding in patients with colorectal cancer
ConclusionsColonoscopy seems to be an effective way to achieve hemostasis for patients with anastomotic bleeding after surgery for colorectal carcinoma. It may be more effective in the early postoperative period, and hemoclip appears to be the first choice to control postoperative anastomotic bleeding.

Outcome following local excision of T1 anal cancers —a systematic review
ConclusionThe current literature on outcome following local excision of T1 anal cancers consists predominantly of smaller, retrospective, and heterogenous studies. Overall 5-year survival is acceptable, but worse than following chemo-radiation therapy. However, local excision seems to have no or only few minor complications. Recurrence rates are high. Therefore, a thorough follow-up program is needed when performing local excision as primary treatment for T1 SCCA. There is an evident need for further studies.

The role of fecal calprotectin in the diagnosis of acute pouchitis following IPAA for ulcerative colitis: a systematic clinical review
ConclusionFecal calprotectin may be a reliable diagnostic tool for acute pouchitis in patients following TPC with IPAA for UC. The high sensitivity of fecal calprotectin for detection of pouchitis makes it a valuable test for ruling out pouchitis. When used in conjunction with other biomarkers, the high specificity offers value in ruling in pouchitis. However, given the complexity of this disease process, relying solely on biomarkers for diagnosis is currently unreasonable. (Source: International Journal of Colorectal Disease)
