Several comments immediately following the British vote for Brexit focused on the negative effects both in general terms and in individual sectors, such as that of scientific research. The most feared consequence is the isolation and loss of funding for researchers in community projects. British commentators were later joined by many other European and non-European countries who have interpreted Brexit as a manifestation of impatience with Europe, its constraint and lack of flexibility, topped by an all-English presumption, that they can do better by themselves...

AIM: Anastomotic leak is associated with higher rates of recurrence after surgery for colorectal cancer. However, the mechanisms responsible are unknown. We hypothesized that the infection-induced inflammatory response may induce overexpression of tumour progression-related genes in immune cells. The aim was to investigate the effect of postoperative intra-abdominal infection on the gene expression patterns of peripheral blood leukocytes (PBL) after surgery for colorectal cancer. METHODS: Prospective matched cohort study...

Radiological cross-sectional (e.g. computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging) and fluoroscopic images are a staple of daily surgical practice including clinician communication, in addition to undergraduate and postgraduate education. Outside of high-precision critical analyses performed by radiologists in their reporting, these investigations are most often shared between clinicians using a narrow image sample from studies which may contain thousands of frames. Sending images outside of the institution requires time and resource (including CD burning, surface mailing and DICOM viewer capacity) and hence depends on many factors for success...

Laparoscopic hysteropexy has a good success rate in terms of anatomical correction without recourse to hysterectomy (1) and uterine prolapse and disorders of the posterior pelvic compartment often coexist. In our institution, internal rectal prolapse is recognized as an aetiological factor for obstructed defaecation and faecal incontinence (2,3). Patients found to have a high grade internal rectal prolapse, on routine proctography, are offered a laparoscopic ventral rectopexy after failed maximum medical treatment which includes 6 months of pelvic floor retraining...

AIM: The purpose of this trial was to compare the effectiveness of sacral neuromodulation (SNM) with a sub-mucosal injection of collagen (Permacol(®) ) in women with faecal incontinence following obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASIS). METHOD: This single blinded randomized controlled trial at two hospital units in Norway included women with faecal incontinence following OASIS. Eligible women who had had a successful percutaneous nerve evaluation were randomly assigned to SNM or Permacol(®) ...

Rectal neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) are increasingly diagnosed worldwide Compared to colonic NEN's, they are commonly smaller, less aggressive, with a low to intermediate grade of differentiation. A 5-year survival rate as high as 88% has been reported[1,2]. The risk of malignancy is closely related to tumour size, depth of invasion and lymph node involvement [1-3]. The incidence of lymph node metastasis increases with tumour (1-10mm 5.4%, 10-20mm 30%, >21mm 70%). The risk of lymph node metastasis increases with tumour depth (12% if submucosa is involved and 56% when the muscolaris propria is involved) [3-5]...

BACKGROUND: Morbidity in patients with an 'ostomy is high. A new care pathway, including perioperative home visits by enterostomal therapists, was studied to assess whether more elaborate education and closer guidance could reduce stoma-related complications and improve quality of life, at acceptable cost. METHODS: Patients requiring an ileostomy or colostomy, for any inflammatory or malignant bowel disease, were included in a 15-centre cluster-randomised 'stepped-wedge' study...

AIM: There is debate as to the correct treatment algorithm sequence for patients with locally advanced rectal cancer with liver metastases. The aim of the study was to assess safety, resectability, and survival after a modified "liver-first" approach. METHOD: This was retrospective study of patients undergoing preoperative adjuvant radiotherapy for the primary rectal tumour, followed by liver resection and finally, resection of the primary tumour. Short-term surgical outcome, overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) are reported...

BACKGROUND: Poor functional results, such as faecal incontinence (FI), low anterior resection syndrome (LARS) or high stool frequency can occur after colorectal resections; including proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA), rectal resection and left hemicolectomy. Management of these patients is an issue, and some case-reports have demonstrated the effectiveness of sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) in such situations. OUR AIM: was to analyse the effectiveness of SNS on poor functional results and on the quality of life, after different colorectal resections...

Large bowel obstruction can be treated effectively by laparoscopic surgery. The approach includes planned site of incision, exploration, identification, mobilization of the bowel, followed by excision of the diseased segment(1) . In a study of 24 patients treated laparoscopically for large bowel obstruction, the authors concluded that the approach is feasible, safe, has low complications rate and enables early hospital discharge(2) . However, the distended bowel loops may progressively diminish the size of the abdominal cavity working space...

LETTER
A Albuquerque, G Macedo
Primary internal anal sphincter degeneration was first described in 1997 by Vaizey et al. as a cause of passive faecal incontinence (FI), and was diagnosed in 3.5% of the patients with FI [1]. It was defined as the presence of thin and hyperechogenic internal anal sphincter (IAS), intact anal sphincters, passive FI, and low anal pressure at rest. In addition, external anal sphincter (EAS) was structural and functionally normal, neurological dysfunction and all other possible causes of FI were excluded.

Giant colonic diverticula are rare with less than 200 reported cases. 90% occur in the sigmoid colon and by definition they are greater than 4 cm in diameter. The majority are associated with concomitant diverticulosis [1]. Giant colonic diverticula are subdivided into 3 groups: Type 1, pulsion diverticula which enlarge gradually with remnants of muscularis mucosa; Type 2, secondary to subserosal perforation, leading to a walled off abscess cavity communicating with the lumen; and Type 3, true diverticula containing all layers of the bowel, likely congenital in origin...

Lymph Node Metastasis after total mesorectal dissection (TME) in low rectal cancer is a challenging condition to manage. The incidence is not known but estimated to be around 20% in locally advanced low rectal cancer [1,2]. The prognosis of patients with lymph node metastasis following TME surgery is poor and surgery may be the only curative option [3,4,5,6]. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Danilo Miskovic
I read the paper by Olofsson et al. with great interest. In this retrospective analysis of the Swedish Colorectal Cancer Registry the authors reached the conclusion that there is "no survival advantage or oncological benefit for extended mesenteric resection during right hemicolectomy" and in addition noted "a small increase in peri-operative mortality". I am puzzled as to how the authors came to this conclusion, based on the evidence presented in the paper. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved...

Incisional hernia is a common complication following both stoma trephine [1] and laparotomy for colorectal resection [2]. Resultant pain, obstruction or impaired mobility are all indications for surgical repair, which is often performed by colorectal surgeons. An open approach is preferred to laparoscopic repair in the management of patients with previous complex abdominal surgery or if concomitant abdominoplasty is required.

INTRODUCTION: Minimal evidence exists to guide the surgeon on the risk of complications when performing abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) in the presence of active infection, contamination or enterocutaneous fistula. This study aims to establish the outcomes of contaminated complex AWR. METHODS: Analysis was conducted according to PRISMA guidelines. Systematic search of the MEDLINE, EMBASE and Pubmed databases was performed. Studies reporting exclusively on single-staged repair of contaminated complex AWR were included...
