Transperineal retropubic approach in total pelvic exenteration for advanced and recurrent colorectal and anal cancer involving the penile base: technique and outcomes
ConclusionsThe transperineal approach to the penile base and retropubic space allows for high rates of R0 resection margin status with direct visualisation of the dorsal venous plexus, thereby minimising blood loss. In our experience, this technique is the preferred approach to excision of cancers threatening and involving the penile base and also for most male patients requiring total pelvic exenteration.

Long-term results after stapled hemorrhoidopexy: a survey study with mean follow-up of 12  years
ConclusionsThe study showed that stapled hemorrhoidopexy using the first-generation devices is safe and feasible but associated with a high recurrence and incontinence rate. More stringent selection criteria in association with the use of large volume devices can lead to better results in the future. (Source: Techniques in Coloproctology)

Rectal trauma injuries: outcomes from the U.S. National Trauma Data Bank
AbstractBackgroundThere is a   lack of general consensus and a little published data regarding the management of trauma-related rectal injuries and outcomes. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the surgical management and corresponding outcomes for this patient cohort, using a nationwide trauma database. MethodsRectal injuries and procedures performed over a 2-year period (2013 and 2014) were identified through ICD-9 clinical modification codes, from the United States National Trauma Data Bank. Patient factors, management variables, and outcomes were evaluated. ResultsOf 1.7  million patients, 1...

Transanal total mesorectal excision for rectal cancer: state of the art
AbstractAchieving a high-quality total mesorectal excision (TME) resection specimen is a central tenet of curative rectal cancer management. However, operating at the caudal extremity of the pelvis is inherently challenging and a number of patient- and tumour-related factors may increase the risk of obtaining a poor TME specimen and positive resection margins. Transanal TME (TaTME) is an advanced surgical technique developed to overcome the limitations in pelvic exposure and instrumentation of transabdominal surgery. This up-to-date narrative review describes the evolution of TME surgery, the indications for TaTME, current...

Trends in hospital admission for acute diverticulitis in Italy from 2008 to 2015
AbstractBackgroundEpidemiological studies in Western countries have documented an increase of hospitalizations for acute diverticulitis (AD) but Italian evidence is scarce. The aim of the present study was to analyse the trend in hospitalization for AD, including in-hospital mortality, in Italy from 2008 to 2015.MethodsThrough the Italian Hospital Information System of the National Health System, we identified diverticulitis of the colon as a discharge diagnosis. Age- and gender-specific rates of hospitalization for AD were assessed.Results174,436 hospitalizations were identified with an increasing rate in 2008 –2015...

Doppler-guided hemorrhoidal dearterialization with laser (HeLP): a prospective analysis of data from a multicenter trial
AbstractBackgroundDoppler-guided hemorrhoidal laser procedure (HeLP) is a new minimally invasive technique to treat symptomatic hemorrhoids. The aim of this multicenter study was to prospectively assess clinical results and patients ’ satisfaction in patients treated with HeLP.MethodsIndications for HeLP included patients with symptomatic hemorrhoids resistant to medical therapy, with low-grade prolapse. Clinical efficacy was evaluated assessing resolution of symptoms and patient satisfaction. Frequency of bleeding and frequency of acute hemorrhoid-related symptoms were given a score of 0 to 4 (where 4  =&thin...
