We report the case of a 42-year-old male patient with mucinous-type metastatic colorectal carcinoma of eight years of evolution. He has received multiple lines of cytostatic treatment with acceptable tolerance and without significant impairment in his quality of life. At present, it is estimated that the overall survival of metastatic colon cancer in cytostatic treatment is around 24 months. However, a small subset of patients may present prolonged survivals of 5 to 10 years after diagnosis, revealing heterogeneity of tumor behavior and response to treatment...

Introduction :Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common cancer in the Western world. About one million of new CRC cases are diagnosed per year. The survival rate of patients with CRC changes widely, even among patients with the same tumor histology. This is possibly due to the impact of environmental factors on tumor development. The diet is the most important among these factors. It is known that nutrition can modify the risk of CRC. However, the role that nutrition plays in the risk of recurrence or survival in patients with CRC is not known with accuracy...

El síndrome de caquexia cancerosa es responsable de la muerte de un número significativo de pacientes con cáncer. Se caracteriza por la presencia de una ingesta reducida, con inflamación sistémica y un metabolismo alterado. Los enfermos presentan característicamente una progresiva pérdida de peso y de masa muscular, junto a deterioro funcional. La pérdida muscular se debe a la combinación de reducción de la síntesis proteica con aumento de su degradación. Ello conduce tanto a un acortamiento como a una reducción en el área de la fibra muscular...

BACKGROUND: Intestinal obstruction is one of the most frequent surgical emergencies. Its diagnosis is essentially based on clinical history, physical exploration and image tests. The aim of this study was to analyze the diagnostic value of acute phase reactants in patients with benign versus malign intestinal obstruction. METHOD: Historical cohort study of 53 patients who underwent surgery because of intestinal obstruction and/or non-obstructive colorectal cancer...

BACKGROUND: Colonoscopy is the gold standard for the detection and prevention of colorectal cancer (CRC). However, some individuals are diagnosed with CRC soon after a previous colonoscopy. AIMS: To evaluate the rate of new onset or missed CRC after a previous colonoscopy and to study potential risk factors. METHODS: Patients in our endoscopy database diagnosed with CRC from March 2004 to September 2011 were identified, selecting those with a colonoscopy performed within the previous 5years...

AIM: Anastomotic leakage is one of the most feared complications after colonic resection. Many risk factors for anastomotic leakage have been reported, but the impact of an individual surgeon as a risk factor has scarcely been reported. The aim of this study was to assess if the individual surgeon is an independent risk factor for anastomotic leakage in colonic cancer surgery. METHOD: This was a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from patients who underwent elective resection for colon cancer with anastomosis at a specialized colorectal unit from January 1993 to December 2010...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of an intervention in primary care professionals on their current knowledge about colorectal cancer screening, subsequent surveillance recommendations and referral strategies. METHODS DESIGN: Cluster randomized controlled trial. LOCATION: Primary Care Centers in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona). PARTICIPANTS: Primary Care Professionals (doctors and nurses). INTERVENTION: Training session in six of the 12 centers (randomly selected) about the colorrectal cancer screening program, and three emails with key messages...

INTRODUCTION: Fiber definition includes all those carbohydrates which are not digested nor absorbed in the upper gastrointestinal tract allowing them to reach the colon with no previous processing. Traditionally fiber has been classified according to their solubility into soluble and insoluble and different physiological properties have been defined for each type. The physiologic role of the fiber intake has been studied in diabetes, dyslipidemia or obesity. Fiber intake has also demonstrated to be beneficial in the prevention of many neoplastic diseases like colorectal cancer...

CONTEXT: Several international studies have observed a correlation between the improvement of socio-demographic indicators and rates of incidence and mortality from cancer of the colon and rectum. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to estimate the correlation between average per capita income and the rate of colorectal cancer mortality in Brazil between 2001 and 2009. METHODS: We obtained data on income inequality (Gini index), population with low incomes (½ infer the minimum wage/month), average family income, per capita ICP and mortality from colon cancer and straight between 2001-2009 by DATASUS...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: endoscopic polypectomy may allow curative resection of invasive adenocarcinoma on colorectal adenoma. Our goal was to determine the factors associated with complete endoscopic resection of invasive adenocarcinoma. METHODS: retrospective observational study. We included 151 patients with invasive adenocarcinoma on adenomas endoscopically resected between 1999 and 2009. We determined those variables independently related to incomplete resection by a logistic regression...

BACKGROUND: Observational studies show that folate levels may be associated with the development of adenomas and colorectal cancer, suggesting that folic acid supplementation may have a preventive effect. AIM: Systematic review of scientific evidence from randomized placebo-controlled clinical studies to identify the effects of folic acid supplementation on the recurrence of colorectal adenomas. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medline via Pubmed systematic review of randomized clinical trials, double-blind and placebo-controlled and references, specifically to evaluate the effect of acid supplementation on the recurrence of colorectal adenomas...

INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic surgery has characteristics that increase the difficulties of learning. Five years ago, an intensive colorectal laparoscopic surgery course was designed to offer training in the technical bases of this type of surgery. The aim of this article is to determine the impact of the colorectal surgery course on clinical practice, and to investigate the factors that limit its applicability and the training preferences of the surgeons. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-two courses of four days duration, with 36 hours of lessons (4 in seminar form and 32 in the surgery), and with 7 trainees, were held between June 2005 and December 2010...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) has become a highly relevant condition nowadays. In this respect, advances in the understanding of its molecular basis are key for an adequate management. From the time when the adenoma-carcinoma sequence was formulated as a carcinogenesis model to this day, when -among other things- three major carcinogenic pathways have been identified, the CRC concept has evolved from that of a single disease to the notion that each CRC is a differentiated condition in itself. The suppressor or chromosome instability pathway, the mutator or microsatellite instability pathway, and the methylator or CpG island methylation pathway allow various phenotypes to be identified within CRC...

Malignant melanoma of the colon and rectum is an infrequent disease. Primary anorectal melanoma accounts for 0.1-4.6% of all malignant neoplasms of the anal canal. Melanoma metastatic to the colon is symptomatic only in 4.4% of patients with a primary melanoma at another site and most of these tumors are diagnosed postmortem. We report two cases of colorrectal malignant melanoma. The first case concerned a patient with rectal bleeding who was diagnosed with a rectal lesion compatible with melanoma. Abdominoperineal resection was performed due to positivity of the sentinel lymph node...

BACKGROUND: Several studies evaluating colorectal cancer (CRC) screening with fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) have reported a significant reduction in mortality from this tumor. The study aims to describe the results of the first round of the CRC screening program in medium-risk population of Valencia and assessing their feasibility and acceptability. METHODS: Colorectal cancer screening pilot study using biennial FOBT. All residents (106,000 Inhabitants) between 50 and 69 years old (a subgroup of 70-74 years), from 3 selected health departments (04, 07 and 13) were invited by mail to participate...
