OBJECTIVE: A watch and wait policy for patients with a complete clinical response (cCR) after external beam chemoradiotherapy (EBCRT) for rectal cancer is an attractive option. However, approximately a third of tumours will regrow, which requires surgical salvage for cure. We assessed whether contact x-ray brachytherapy (CXB) can improve organ preservation by avoiding surgery for local regrowth. METHODS: From our institutional database, we identified 200 of 573 patients treated by CXB from 2003 to 2012...

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: Neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy (nCRT) for rectal cancer may lead to cure. As we currently lack reliable methods to clinically confirm the absence of disease, some patients undergo radical resection and have pathological complete response (pCR) still undergo surgery. Furthermore, it is uncertain if conventional one-level histopathological analysis is accurate enough to determine complete response. Confirming pCR is essential to determine the prognosis and to consider the patient's inclusion in trials of adjuvant therapy...

BACKGROUND: Rectum-sparing approaches appear to be appropriate in rectal cancer patients with a major (mCR) or complete clinical response (cCR) after neoadjuvant therapy. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effectiveness of rectum-sparing approaches at 2 years after the completion of neoadjuvant treatment. STUDY DESIGN: Patients with rectal adenocarcinoma eligible to receive neoadjuvant therapy will be prospectively enrolled. Patients will be restaged 7-8 weeks after the completion of neoadjuvant therapy and those with mCR (defined as absence of mass, small mucosal irregularity no more than 2 cm in diameter at endoscopy and no metastatic nodes at MRI) or cCR will be enrolled in the trial...

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the difference in organ-preservation rates and avoidance of definitive surgery among cT2N0 rectal cancer patients undergoing 2 different chemoradiation (CRT) regimens. BACKGROUND: Patients with cT2N0 rectal cancer are more likely to develop complete response to neoadjuvant CRT. Organ preservation has been considered an alternative treatment strategy for selected patients. Radiation dose-escalation and consolidation chemotherapy have been associated with increased rates of response and may improve chances of organ preservation among these patients...

Over the last decade, with the acceptance of the need for improvements in the outcome of patients affected with rectal cancer, there has been a significant increase in the literature regarding treatment options available to patients affected by this disease. That treatment related decisions should be made at a high volume multidisciplinary tumor board, after pre-operative rectal magnetic resonance imaging and the importance of total mesorectal excision (TME) are accepted standard of care. More controversial is the emerging role for watchful waiting rather than radical surgery in complete pathologic responders, which may be appropriate in 20% of patients...

BACKGROUND: Response to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) of rectal cancer is variable. Accurate imaging for prediction and early assessment of response would enable appropriate stratification of management to reduce treatment morbidity and improve therapeutic outcomes. Use of either diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) or dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) imaging alone currently lacks sufficient sensitivity and specificity for clinical use to guide individualized treatment in rectal cancer...

Neo-adjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NACRT) combined with total mesorectal excision (TME) surgery is the main treatment for locally advanced middle-low rectal cancer, and NACRT significantly improves the local control rate of rectal cancer. According to the current guidelines, patients who receive clinical complete response (cCR) after NACRT are recommended for treatment with TME surgery. A few studies have shown that the watch-and-wait (WAW) policy is safe and could ensure anorectal function and quality of life in patients with cCR...

Although the incidence of prostate cancer is rising due to PSA screening and increased life expectancy, the metastatic potential of low-grade, organ-confined disease remains low. An increasing number of studies suggest that radical treatment in such cases confers little or no survival benefit at a significant cost to morbidity. Active surveillance is a promising management approach of such low-risk cancers: eligible patients are selected based on clinical and pathological findings at diagnosis and are regularly monitored with digital rectal examinations, PSA testing and biopsies...

In recent years, our understanding of rectal cancer has improved, including how locally advanced disease responds to chemotherapy and radiation. This has led to new innovations and advances in the treatment of rectal cancer, which includes organ-preserving strategies for responsive disease, and minimally invasive approaces for the performance of total mesorectal excision/protectomyh for persistently advanced disease. This article discusses new strategies for rectal cancer therapy, including Watch and Wait, local excision, minimally invasive proctectomy, and transanal total mesorectal excision particularly in the setting of preoperative multimodality treatment...

BACKGROUND: A watch-and-wait approach for patients with clinical complete response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation could avoid the morbidity of conventional surgery for rectal cancer. However, the safety of this approach is unclear. We synthesised the evidence for watch-and-wait as a treatment for rectal cancer. METHODS: We systematically searched MEDLINE, Embase, and the grey literature (up to June 28, 2016) for studies of patients with rectal adenocarcinoma managed by watch-and-wait after complete clinical response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation...

BACKGROUND: The potential of chemotherapy as salvage treatment after failure of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) has never been explored. We conducted a single-center, retrospective analysis to address this question. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with newly diagnosed LARC who were inoperable or candidates for extensive (i.e., beyond total mesorectal excision [TME]) surgery after long-course chemoradiotherapy and who received salvage chemotherapy were included...

Introduction The aim of this study was to identify patient factors including serum biomarkers that may predict response to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer staged on magnetic resonance imaging. Prediction of response may be helpful when selecting patients for a non-operative programme. Methods A retrospective review was carried out of patients undergoing neoadjuvant CRT for rectal cancer, conducted at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. All patients were managed through the multidisciplinary team...

BACKGROUND: Nonoperative management for patients with rectal cancer who have achieved a clinical complete response after chemoradiotherapy is becoming increasingly important in recent years. However, the definition of and modality used for patients with clinical complete response differ greatly between institutions, and the role of endoscopic assessment as a nonoperative approach has not been fully investigated. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the ability of endoscopic assessments to predict pathological regression of rectal cancer after chemoradiotherapy and the applicability of these assessments for the watchful waiting approach...

Preoperative radiotherapy (RT) or chemoradiotherapy (CRT) is often required before rectal cancer surgery to obtain low local recurrence rates or, in locally advanced tumours, to radically remove the tumour. RT/CRT in tumours responding completely can allow an organ-preserving strategy. The time from the end of the RT/CRT to surgery or to the decision not to operate has been prolonged during recent years. After a brief review of the literature, the relevance of the time interval to surgery is discussed depending upon the indication for RT/CRT...
