BACKGROUND: Low anterior resection (LAR) for rectal cancer is a potentially challenging operation due to limited space in the pelvis. CT pelvimetry allows to quantify pelvic space, so that its relationship with outcome after LAR may be assessed. Studies investigating this, however, yielded conflicting results. We hypothesized that a small pelvis is associated with a higher rate of incomplete mesorectal excision, anastomotic leakages, and increased rate of urinary dysfunction in patients operated for rectal cancer...

BACKGROUND: Anal squamous cell carcinoma (ASCC) is rare, accounting for only 1% of gastrointestinal malignancies. We sought to better understand management strategies for ASCC in the setting of Crohn's disease (CD). METHODS: A retrospective chart review from 2001 to 2016 was conducted using ICD-9/10 codes for CD (555.9/K50) and ASCC (154.3/C44.520). Adult patients with a diagnosis of CD at the time of ASCC diagnosis were included. RESULTS: Seven patients (five female) were included with a median age of 50 years...

PURPOSE: There is no consensual definition of postoperative ileus (POI), which leads to a lack of reproducibility. The aims of this study were (i) to propose and evaluate a classification of postoperative ileus based on its consequences and (ii) to assess the reproducibility of the classification. METHODS: A national global survey was carried out according to the DELPHI method in order to create a classification of primary POI. The classification was subsequently tested on a cohort of patients who underwent colorectal surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) may be associated with some extracolonic manifestations which in this vein, it is known as Gardner's syndrome. To our knowledge, so far, there is no report of mucinous cystadenoma in association with FAP. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a 31-year-old woman with FAP who underwent total proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis 5 years earlier. During endoscopic surveillance, she was found to have a submucosal lesion in rectal cuff...

INTRODUCTION: A potentially resectable bony metastasis in the context of oligometastatic colorectal cancer is uncommon. Bony metastases are usually considered a late event with poor prognosis and generally associated with liver and/or lung metastases. INDEX CASE: A previously healthy 33-year-old gentleman, with no family history of colorectal cancer, presented with rectal bleeding and at colonoscopy had a biopsy-proven adenocarcinoma of the rectum, 7 cm from the anal verge...

PURPOSE: Existing studies suggest that metformin lowers the risk and mortality of colorectal cancer. However, the effect of metformin on the suppression and prevention of colorectal adenomas is not clear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of metformin on the recurrence of colorectal adenoma in diabetic patients with previous colorectal adenoma. METHODS: Among 423 diabetic patients who underwent surveillance colonoscopy after resection of colorectal adenoma between 2005 and 2011, 257 patients were retrospectively reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: Identification of lymph nodes and pathological analysis is crucial for the correct staging of colon cancer. Lymph nodes that drain directly from the tumor area are called "sentinel nodes" and are believed to be the first place for metastasis. The purpose of this study was to perform sentinel node mapping in vivo with indocyanine green and ex vivo with methylene blue in order to evaluate if the sentinel lymph nodes can be identified by both techniques. METHODS: Patients with colon cancer UICC stage I-III were included from two institutions in Denmark from February 2015 to January 2016...

PURPOSE: We aimed to present the factors associated with lymph node harvest (LNH) and seek whether surgical quality control measures can improve LNH. METHODS: From a prospectively collected data at a single institution, 874 CRC patients who underwent curative surgery between 2004 and 2013 were included. Factor and survival analyses were performed regarding LNH. Subgroup analysis was performed according to LNH group (LNH ≥ 12 vs LNH < 12) and year of surgery (2004-2008, 2009-2011, and 2012-2013 group)...

PURPOSE: Sarcopenia is reported to be associated with complications after surgery. However, there is no established optimal parameter to determine sarcopenia affecting surgical outcome. This study investigated whether morphologic change of the psoas muscle (MPM) reflects sarcopenia and could be a predictor of complications after colorectal cancer surgery. METHODS: Colorectal cancer patients who underwent primary tumor resection with anastomosis between 2015 and 2016 were analyzed...
