INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic total mesorectal excision is effective and safe but often technically challenging because of inadequate exposure. Transanal total mesorectal excision was introduced to mitigate this limitation and improve the quality of mesorectal dissection in even the most challenging cases. Currently, the technique for transanal total mesorectal excision dissection is not standardized. TECHNIQUE: The sequential approach to transanal total mesorectal excision mirrors the principles of the transanal abdominal transanal procedure...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Anantha Padmanabhan, Christoforos Frangopoulos, Lynn E T Shaffer
BACKGROUND: Previous literature has shown that propofol has ideal anesthetic properties for patients undergoing colonoscopy, a common procedure at outpatient surgery centers. However, there is a paucity of information regarding patient satisfaction with propofol. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate patient satisfaction with propofol compared with nonpropofol (fentanyl/midazolam) anesthesia for outpatient colonoscopies. Safety and complications were secondary end points...

BACKGROUND: Adherence to care processes and surgical outcomes varies by population subgroups for the same procedure. Enhanced recovery after surgery pathways are intended to standardize care, but their effect on process adherence and outcomes for population subgroups is unknown. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to demonstrate the association between recovery pathway implementation, process measures, and short-term surgical outcomes by population subgroup. DESIGN: This study is a pre- and post-quality improvement implementation cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Quality of life is often considered when deciding and evaluating the treatment strategy for patients diagnosed with anal fistula. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to develop and psychometrically test the Quality of Life in Patients with Anal Fistula Questionnaire. DESIGN: This was an observational cross-sectional study for the development and validation of a psychometric tool. SETTINGS: The study was conducted at a general hospital in the southeast of Spain...

BACKGROUND: The gold standard for surveillance of patients with anal lesions is unclear. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to stratify patients for risk of progression of disease and to determine appropriate intervals for surveillance of patients with anal disease. DESIGN: This was a retrospective chart review for patients treated for anal lesions between 2007 and 2014. Only patients with ≥1 year of follow-up from index evaluation, pathology, documented physical examination, and anoscopy findings were included for analysis...

BACKGROUND: Sphincter-sparing repairs are commonly used to treat anal fistulas with significant muscle involvement. OBJECTIVE: The current study evaluates the trends and efficacy of sphincter-sparing repairs and determines risk factors for fistula recurrence. DESIGN AND SETTINGS: A retrospective review was performed at 3 university-affiliated teaching hospitals. PATIENTS: All 462 patients with cryptoglandular anal fistulas who underwent 573 sphincter-sparing repairs between 2005 and 2015 were included...

BACKGROUND: Ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract is a well-described sphincter-preserving technique for the management of fistula in ano. In 2007, we reported our early experience demonstrating a primary success rate of 94.4%. These findings have since been supported by several short-term studies, but long-term results and secondary cure rates after ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract failure remain unknown. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to report a 10-year experience of ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract with extended long-term follow-up...

BACKGROUND: The reported proportion of patients with familial adenomatous polyposis who have adrenal lesions varies between 7% and 13% compared with 4% in the general population; the prevalence of adrenal lesions in patients with attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis and MUTYH-associated polyposis is unknown. Data on the clinical relevance and clinical course are limited. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to report on the frequency, characteristics, and progression of adrenal lesions in polyposis patients...

BACKGROUND: Practice guidelines differ in their support of adjuvant chemotherapy use in patients who received preoperative chemoradiation for rectal cancer. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of adjuvant chemotherapy among patients with locally advanced rectal cancer who received neoadjuvant chemoradiation and surgery. DESIGN: This was a retrospective study. Multivariable Cox proportional hazard modeling was used to evaluate the adjusted survival differences...

BACKGROUND: Stage IV colorectal cancer encompasses various clinical conditions. The differences in prognosis after surgery between different metastatic organs have not been fully investigated. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to assess prognostic significance in peritoneal metastasis in R0 resected stage IV colorectal cancer. DESIGN: We conducted a multicenter retrospective study of patients with R0 resected stage IV colorectal cancer; they were categorized into 3 groups according to the number and location of metastatic organs, including single-organ metastasis in the peritoneum, single-organ metastasis at sites except the peritoneum, and multiple-organ metastases...

BACKGROUND: Fifteen to twenty percent of patients with locally advanced rectal cancer have a clinical complete response after chemoradiation therapy. These patients can be offered nonoperative organ-preserving treatment, the so-called watch-and-wait policy. The main goal of this watch-and-wait policy is an anticipated improved quality of life and functional outcome in comparison with a total mesorectal excision, while maintaining a good oncological outcome. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the quality of life of watch-and-wait patients with a matched-controlled group of patients who underwent chemoradiation and surgery (total mesorectal excision group)...

BACKGROUND: Transanal total mesorectal excision is a new approach to curative-intent rectal cancer surgery. Training and surgeon experience with this approach has not been assessed previously in America. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to characterize a structured training program and to determine the experience of delegate surgeons. DESIGN: Data were assimilated from an anonymous, online survey delivered to attendees on course completion...
