BACKGROUND: The management of recurrent rectal cancer is challenging. At the present time, pelvic exenteration with en bloc sacrectomy offers the only hope of a lasting cure. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate clinical outcome measures and complication rates following sacrectomy for recurrent rectal cancer. DATA SOURCES: A search was conducted on Pub Med for English language articles relevant to sacrectomy for recurrent rectal cancer with no time limitations...

REVIEW
Joseph C Kong, Glen R Guerra, Satish K Warrier, Robert G Ramsay, Alexander G Heriot
BACKGROUND: Currently there is no reliable test to predict pathological complete response following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for rectal cancer. However, there is increasing interest in using clinical complete response as a surrogate marker, allowing a subset of patients with locally advanced rectal cancer to be allocated into a "watch and wait" pathway. Little is known about the oncological safety of the "watch and wait" approach or the rate of salvage surgery in cases of tumor regrowth...

Xiaolong Ge, Xujie Dai, Chao Ding, Hongliang Tian, Jianbo Yang, Jianfeng Gong, Weiming Zhu, Ning Li, Jieshou Li
BACKGROUND: A simple and accurate predictor of postoperative complications is needed for early and safe discharge after surgery. A decrease in serum albumin is commonly observed early after surgery, even in patients with normal preoperative levels. However, whether it predicts patient postoperative outcome is unknown. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the reduction in serum albumin within 2 postoperative days compared with the preoperative level could serve as an independent predictor of postoperative complications after colorectal surgery...

BACKGROUND: Motor peripheral nerve injury is a rare but serious event after colorectal surgery, and a nationwide study of this complication is lacking. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to report the incidence, trends, and risk factors of motor peripheral nerve injury during colorectal surgery. DESIGN: The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was surveyed for motor peripheral nerve injury complicating colorectal procedures...

Khaled M Madbouly, Khaled S Abbas, Emad Emanuel
BACKGROUND: Posterior tibial nerve stimulation influences both motor and sensory pathways, as well as the central nervous system. Stimulation of posterior tibial nerve roots (L4 to S3) could improve stool evacuation through S3 and/or S2 stimulation. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to assess the efficiency of bilateral posterior tibial nerve stimulation in the treatment of rectal evacuation disorder without anatomic obstruction. DESIGN: This was a prospective case series studying the treatment of patients with obstructed defecation by posterior tibial nerve stimulation...

BACKGROUND: Hysterectomy might adversely affect pelvic floor functions and result in many different symptoms, such as urinary and anal incontinence, obstructed defecation, and constipation. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the influence of hysterectomy on pelvic floor disorders. DESIGN: This was a prospective and longitudinal study. SETTINGS: The study was conducted at the Ankara University Department of Surgery and the Dr Zekai Tahir Burak Women's Health Research and Education Hospital between September 2008 and March 2011...

Laura W Leicher, Wouter H de Vos Tot Nederveen Cappel, Henderik L van Westreenen
BACKGROUND: Combined endoscopic laparoscopic surgical removal is used for polyps in the colon that are not suitable for endoscopic removal because of size, location, or scarring. However, the placement of a linear stapler can be challenging. Currently a wedge resection is mostly documented in the cecum or ascending colon. OBJECTIVE: We report on our experience with limited endoscopy-assisted wedge resections in the entire colon. DESIGN: A retrospective study was performed...

BACKGROUND: Knowledge of the normal pattern and variations of the blood supply of the right colon is crucial for better outcomes after colon surgery. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to describe the precise vascular anatomy of the right colon according to surgical perspective. DESIGN: Adult fresh cadavers were dissected between January 2013 and October 2015, focusing on the venous and arterial anatomy of the right side of the colon...

BACKGROUND: To our knowledge, no studies to date have assessed the short- and long-term outcomes of laparoscopic total mesenteric excision in patients with neuroendocrine tumors of the rectum. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the short- and long-term outcomes of patients who underwent laparoscopic rectal resection plus total mesenteric excision for rectal neuroendocrine tumors at our institution. DESIGN: This was a single center, retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Patients with a locally advanced rectal carcinoma benefit from preoperative chemoradiotherapy. MRI is considered the first choice imaging modality after preoperative chemoradiation, although its reliability for restaging is debatable. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of MRI in restaging locally advanced rectal cancer after preoperative chemoradiation. DESIGN: This was a retrospective study. SETTINGS: The study was conducted in a Dutch high-volume rectal cancer center...

BACKGROUND: Robotic total mesorectal excision for rectal cancer has rapidly increased and has shown short-term outcomes comparable to conventional laparoscopic total mesorectal excision. However, data for long-term oncologic outcomes are limited. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to evaluate long-term oncologic outcomes of robotic total mesorectal excision compared with laparoscopic total mesorectal excision. DESIGN: This was a retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Transanal abdominal transanal proctectomy is a sphincter-preserving procedure designed to avoid colostomy in patients with cancer in the distal third of the rectum. Oncologic outcomes of this procedure have been established. However, data regarding patient satisfaction and quality of life are scant. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the quality of life and functional outcomes of patients after transanal abdominal transanal proctectomy...
