PURPOSE: In early rectal cancer cases, the use of local excision is increasing. The general indication for local excision is based on the preoperative stage, but there is often a discrepancy between pre and postoperative stages. We sought to determine the indications for local excision in T1 rectal adenocarcinoma patients by comparing the preoperative clinical and postoperative pathological stages. A second aim was to compare the oncologic outcomes between local excision and radical resection...

PURPOSE: Anastomotic leakage after low anterior resection for rectal cancer is a critical problem. Many risk factors have been suggested and surgical techniques have improved, but anastomotic leakage remains a major postoperative challenge. This study sought to create a nomogram for precise prediction of anastomotic leakage after low anterior resection for rectal cancer. METHODS: We used data of 936 patients that had been prospectively collected by the Japanese Society for Colon and Rectal Cancer between June 2010 and February 2013...

PURPOSE: It is controversial whether patients fare better with conservative or surgical treatment in certain stages of acute diverticulitis (AD), in particular when phlegmonous inflammation or covered micro- or macro-perforation are present. The aim of this study was to determine long-term quality of life (QoL) for AD patients who received either surgery or conservative treatment in different stages. METHODS: We included patients treated for AD at the University Hospital Grosshadern, Munich, Germany, between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2010...

PURPOSE: Diverting ileostomies help prevent major complications related to anastomoses after colorectal resection but can cause metabolic derangement and hypovolemia, leading to readmission. This paper aims to determine whether angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEi) or angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) use increased the risk of readmission, or readmission specifically for dehydration after new ileostomy creation. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of patients undergoing diverting ileostomy at a tertiary-care hospital, 2009-2015...

BACKGROUND: An anastomotic leak is a fairly common and a potentially lethal complication in colorectal surgery. Objective methods to assess the viability and blood circulation of the anastomosis could help in preventing leaks. Intraoperative pulse oximetry is a cheap, easy to use, fast, and readily available method to assess tissue viability. Our aim was to study whether intraoperative pulse oximetry can predict the development of an anastomotic leak. METHODS: The study was a prospective single-arm study conducted between the years 2005 and 2011 in Helsinki University Hospital...

Transanal total mesorectal excision (taTME) has been proposed to overcome the limitations of laparoscopic TME. The robotic surgical platform has already established its benefits in providing superior ergonomics, and the purported advantages of taTME may play less important a role in the era of robots.
