Abdomino-perineal excision is a standard procedure for low rectal cancer. It is not possible to perform the abdominal and perineal procedures simultaneously during the traditional laparoscopy assisted excision. The usual approach is to perform the abdominal surgery first in the lithotomy position, and then move the patient to the jack knife position for the perineal part of the operation.

REVIEW
Tony Ge Milne, Rebekah Jaung, Gregory O'Grady, Ian P Bissett
BACKGROUND: Postoperative ileus causes significant patient morbidity after abdominal surgery. Some evidence suggests non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may reduce time to gut recovery, but there has not been a meta-analysis to assess their efficacy. AIM: To determine the benefit of NSAIDs in patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery on recovery of post-operative gut function by systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS: MEDLINE, EMBASE, CENTRAL and reference lists were searched with no date or language restrictions...

AIM: To describe the technique of a modified extraperitoneal retrotransversalis end colostomy as part of a laparoscopic abdomino-perineal resection (APR). METHOD: The colostomy site is preoperatively chosen and intraoperatively used for a trocar. After the rectum has been mobilized the descending colon is freed. The peritoneal margin is gently grasped and the parietal peritoneum, extraperitoneal together with the transversalis fascia are separated from the transverse abdominal muscle fibres upwards for 3-4 cm aiming at the trocar site to form the extraperitoneal retrotransversalis canal...

Immunomodulation has long been a central tenet in both the medical therapy of ulcerative colitis (UC) and in the prevention of organ rejection after renal transplant (RT) with many drugs in common. While severe exacerbation of pre-existing UC is unusual after RT, we recently cared for such a patient whose colitis deteriorated dramatically within the first year of such surgery. While there is anecdotal experience of successful medical escalation to biologic therapy, we thought surgery made better sense and he underwent early single port laparoscopic total colectomy as detailed in the associated video...

Our institutional data shows that approximately 50% of colorectal cancers present at a locally advanced stage(1) necessitating total pelvic exenteration (TPE) in certain cases. It demands technical expertise and is associated with considerable morbidity. We regularly use laparoscopy in such cases whenever it is feasible. Robotic TPE for rectal cancer was shown to be feasible technically in 2014 on Si platform(2). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Robotic approach to colonic surgery is one of the latest minimal invasive techniques evolving over the last few years. Robotic platform offers the advantage of stable immersive 3D high-definition vision, fully wristed instruments leading to added precision for surgeons [1]⁠. Oncological safety of robotic colonic surgery is comparable with laparoscopic approach and this has already been established. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Anorectal surgery done under Pudendal block(local anesthesia) has several advantages[1]. However the conventional technique of pudendal block is underutilized as the technique is technically demanding[2]. A simpler technique, SEPTA (Simplified Easily reproducible Pudendal nerve block Technique for Anorectal surgery) has been devised, which is safer and easier to administer.

PURPOSE: Although a minimum of 12 lymph nodes (LNs) has been recommended for colorectal cancer, there remains considerable debates for rectal cancer patients. Inadequacy of examined LNs would lead to under-staging, and inappropriate treatment as a consequence. We describe statistical tool that allows an estimate the probability of false-negative nodes. METHODS: A total of 26,778 adenocarcinoma rectum cancer patients with tumour stage (T stage) 1-3, diagnosed between 2004 and 2013, who did not receive neoadjuvant therapies and had at least one histologically assessed LN, were extracted from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database...

INTRODUCTION: It is well established that ileoanal pouch-related septic complications (PRSC) increase the risk of pouch failure. There are a number of publications that describe the management of early PRSC in ulcerative colitis (UC) in small series. This article aims to systematically review and summarise the relevant contemporary data on this subject and provide an algorithm for the management of early PRSC. METHOD: A systematic review was undertaken in accordance with PRISMA guidelines...

LETTER
Stefan Benz
Current evidence suggests that complete mesocolic excision (CME) for right sided colon cancer could be beneficial in terms of long term survival [1]. For neuroendocrine tumors (NET) no data are available. However, NETs have a considerable potential for lymphatic spread [2]. Therefore, it seems reasonable to assume that in NETs with a high risk for lymph node involvement CME is an option. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AIM: Clinical guidelines recommend adjuvant chemotherapy for high-risk patients with stage II-III colorectal cancer. However, chemotherapeutic administration rates differ significantly between hospitals. We assessed the prognostic benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with stage IIb/c colorectal cancer, and the prognostic impact of inter-hospital variations in the administration of adjuvant chemotherapy for stage II-III colorectal cancer. METHOD: We conducted a multicenter, retrospective study of 17,757 stage II-III colorectal cancer patients, treated between 1997 and 2008 in 23 hospitals in Japan...

AIM: Extralevator abdominoperineal resection (ELAP) may be complicated by perineal wound healing problems and herniation. We report a consecutive series of 38 such patients with selective use of a fasciocutaneous V-Y buttock advancement flap (BAF). METHOD: Data were collected on a series of patients undergoing ELAP for rectal malignancy between August 2011 and July 2017. Demographics, management and outcomes were recorded prospectively. Perineal wound problems were considered 'major' if they required packing, otherwise being classed as 'minor'...

AIM: Anorectal malformations (ARM) are rare congenital colorectal anomalies with long lasting consequences, among which faecal incontinence is one of the most relevant since it may strongly affects patients' health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Although a growing body of literature supports the importance of self-efficacy in chronic disease health outcomes, only few studies have focused on self-efficacy in anorectal malformations and in faecal incontinence. The purpose of the present study is to examine the mediational role of self-efficacy in the path between faecal incontinence and health-related quality of life in patients born with in anorectal malformations...

PURPOSE: Anastomotic leak (AL) is a major complication of rectal cancer surgery. Despite advances in surgical practice, rates of AL have remained static at around 10-15%. The aetiology of AL is multifactorial, but one of the most crucial risk factors, which is mostly under the control of the surgeon, is blood supply to the anastomosis. The MRC/NIHR IntAct study will determine whether assessment of anastomotic perfusion using a fluorescent dye (Indocyanine Green) and near-infrared laparoscopy can minimise the rate of anastomotic leak as compared to conventional white light laparoscopy...

AIM: Tools are needed to aid in the assessment of prognosis of patients with rectal cancer regarding the risk of medium-term mortality. The aim of this study was to develop and validate clinical prediction rules for 1- and 2-year mortality in patients undergoing surgery for rectal cancer. METHOD: A prospective cohort study of patients diagnosed with rectal cancer who underwent surgery was carried out. The main outcomes were mortality at 1 and 2 years after surgery...

BACKGROUND: As adjuvant chemotherapy in colorectal cancer relies on the identification of lymph-node metastases, pathologist's expertise may have a considerable influence on postoperative survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the impact of the pathologist's expertise on lymph node detection rate and postoperative survival in patients operated on by a single experienced colorectal surgeon within a 5 year period. We assessed 229 patients undergoing total mesorectal excision or complete mesocolic excision by the senior author between Jan...

AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate risk factors for anastomotic stenosis in patients operated on for diverticular disease. Histological inflammation and diverticula at the resection margins were also considered. METHOD: Patients' characteristics, the surgical technique and post-operative complications were collected from the medical records. Anastomotic stenoses were evaluated prospectively by rigid sigmoidoscopy during follow-up examinations. Histological specimens were examined by a single pathologist who investigated inflammation and diverticula at the resection margins...
