Xin Zhou, Bingyan Wang, Fei Li, Jilian Wang, Wei Fu
BACKGROUND: Some patients receiving defunctioning stomas will never undergo stoma reversal, but it is difficult to preoperatively predict which patients will be affected. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this meta-analysis was to identify the risk factors associated with nonclosure of temporary stomas after sphincter-preserving low anterior resection for rectal cancer. DATA SOURCES: We performed a comprehensive search of the PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Central Library databases for all of the studies analyzing risk factors for nonclosure of defunctioning stomas...

BACKGROUND: Underrepresentation of highly ranked women in academic surgery is recognized. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to examine whether sex differences exist in faculty representation, academic rank, and publication productivity among colorectal faculty in fellowship programs. DESIGN: American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons fellowship program faculty were identified. Bibliometric data were obtained for each faculty member, including Hirsch index, the Hirsch index divided by research career duration, and number of publications...

BACKGROUND: Elderly patients undergoing colorectal surgery have increasingly become under scrutiny by accounting for the largest fraction of geriatric postoperative deaths and a significant proportion of all postoperative complications, including anastomotic leak. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine predictors of anastomotic leak in elderly patients undergoing colectomy by creating a novel nomogram for simplistic prediction of anastomotic leak risk in a given patient...

#10
Benjamin R Hornung, Karen J Telford, Gordon L Carlson, Peter J Mitchell, Niels Klarskov, Edward S Kiff
BACKGROUND: Men with passive fecal leakage represent a distinct clinical entity in which the pathophysiology remains unclear. Standard anorectal investigations fail to demonstrate consistent abnormalities in this group. Anal acoustic reflectometry is a new test of anal sphincter function with greater sensitivity and discriminatory ability than conventional anal manometry. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether men with fecal leakage have an abnormality in anal sphincter function that is detectable by anal acoustic reflectometry...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Alaa M Sewefy, Aymen Hassanen, Ahmed M Atyia, Saleh K Saleh
BACKGROUND: Sacroccygeal pilonidal sinus disease is a worldwide health problem, affecting young adults, mainly males, with a tendency for recurrence. Various modalities have been used for treating this condition. The Karydakis procedure is one of most commonly used asymmetric flaps for treating this condition. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to evaluate the Karydakis procedure with tie-over compressing sutures instead of the routine use of a drain in the treatment pilonidal sinus...

BACKGROUND: Patients with Crohn's disease have a higher failure rate after ileal pouch surgery compared with their counterparts with ulcerative colitis. OBJECTIVE: We hypothesized that risk of continent ileostomy failure can be stratified based on the timing of Crohn's disease diagnosis and aimed to assess long-term outcomes. DESIGN: This was a retrospective cohort study. SETTINGS: The investigation took place in a high-volume, specialized colorectal surgery department...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leak has a negative impact on the prognosis of patients who undergo colorectal cancer resection. However, data on anastomotic leak are limited for stage IV colorectal cancers. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of anastomotic leak on survival and the decision to administer chemotherapy and/or metastasectomy after elective surgery for stage IV colorectal cancer. DESIGN: This was a nationwide, retrospective cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Adequate oncologic staging of rectal neoplasia is important for treatment and prognostic evaluation of the disease. Diagnostic methods such as endorectal ultrasound can assess rectal wall invasion and lymph node involvement. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to correlate findings of 3-dimensional endorectal ultrasound and pathologic diagnosis of extraperitoneal rectal tumors with regard to depth of rectal wall invasion, lymph node involvement, percentage of rectal circumference involvement, and tumor extension...

BACKGROUND: Timing of systemic chemotherapy in patients with colorectal peritoneal carcinomatosis treated with cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy is controversial. Preoperative systemic chemotherapy may offer benefits. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of timing of systemic chemotherapy on survival. DESIGN: This was a retrospective cohort study. SETTINGS: The study was conducted at a tertiary referral center...

BACKGROUND: Oncological outcomes of lateral pelvic lymph node metastasis in rectal cancer treated with preoperative chemoradiotherapy remain to be elucidated. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to clarify the therapeutic effect of chemoradiotherapy on lateral pelvic lymph node metastasis, the risk factors of lateral pelvic lymph node metastasis, and oncological outcomes of lateral pelvic lymph node dissection after chemoradiotherapy. DESIGN: This was a nonrandomized, retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about anorectal function and quality of life after chemoradiation followed by local excision, which is an alternative to total mesorectal excision for selected patients with early rectal cancer. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to prospectively assess anorectal function and health-related quality of life of patients with T2N0 rectal cancer who were treated with an alternative approach. DESIGN: This was a prospective, phase II trial...
