OBJECTIVES: Evidence suggests a possible role of Fusobacterium nucleatum in colorectal carcinogenesis, especially in right-sided proximal colorectum. Considering a change in bowel contents and microbiome from proximal to distal colorectal segments, we hypothesized that the proportion of colorectal carcinoma enriched with F. nucleatum might gradually increase along the bowel subsites from rectum to cecum. METHODS: A retrospective, cross-sectional analysis was conducted on 1,102 colon and rectal carcinomas in molecular pathological epidemiology databases of the Nurses' Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study...

BACKGROUND: Today, extralevator abdominoperineal resection is the standard of care for low rectal cancers with sphincter involvement or location precluding anastomosis. This procedure, while effective from an oncologic point of view, is morbid, with a high incidence of wound complications and genitourinary, and sexual dysfunction. We present a modification of this procedure via a robotic approach, which maintains the radicality while reducing the soft tissue loss and potentially the morbidity...

Synchronous appearance of the primary gastrointestinal malignancies is rare. Coexistence of primary pancreatic and hepatocellular carcinoma as synchronous malignancy is even rarer. We report a case of such combination in a 50 year old female who presented with bleeding per rectum and while evaluating we found simultaneous appearance of primary malignancies of pancreas, liver and solitary colonic metastasis from the pancreas in the background of chronic calcific pancreatitis. To the best of our knowledge this combination of synchronous pancreatic and hepatocellular carcinoma and colonic metastasis from the pancreas is unique...

AIM: Anorectal malformation (ARM) is a rare congenital disorder of the anus and rectum. In the last 30 years virtually all patients born with ARM have survived and surgeons from adult care may be called to deal with new and long-term sequelae, including tumors of the pulled-through anorectum. Two new cases of colorectal carcinoma in young adults born with ARM and a review of the literature is reported to emphasize the importance of a multidisciplinary follow-up. METHODS: A man and a woman, with previous history of ARM, presented at 34 years of age with symptoms of intestinal occlusion and a large pelvic mass...

BACKGROUND: Hepatocyte Paraffin 1 (Hep Par 1) was being extensively used to recognize the hepatocellular carcinomas, until recognition of its expression in tumors without hepatocellular differentiation. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to analyze if Hep Par 1 stain can serve as a specific marker of the small intestinal (SI) adenocarcinomas, versus other gastrointestinal tract (GIT) primary tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective cross-sectional study, normal GIT mucosa (n - 60), corresponding adenocarcinomas (n - 60) and nodal metastatic foci (n - 60) from the same patients, including 10 cases each from the esophagus, stomach, SI periampullary region, colon, rectum, and gall bladder were included...

AIM: A potential impact of the centralisation of cancer services in the UK is difficulty in gaining access for members of the population living far from them. This could lead to delayed presentation of cancer with more advanced disease and clinical deterioration at diagnosis. A patient may be recorded in the cancer registry as having cancer of unknown primary (CUP) if the clinical state at presentation precludes investigation. Other patients may be so recorded if investigation identifies sites of metastatic tumour but the primary is not found...

Charlotte R Gould, Graham Branagan
AIM: Phantom rectum is the sensation of an intact and/or functioning rectum, despite excision at surgery. Abdominoperineal excision of the rectum (APER) may be complemented by reconstructive operations and recently it was reported that patients undergoing APER and vertical rectus abdominis myocutaneous (VRAM) flap reconstruction are more prone to develop phantom sensations at an earlier timeframe and have more persistent symptoms than those who do not have perineal repairs. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of phantom rectal sensations in a cohort of these patients...

REVIEW
Jayaprakash Sreenarasimhaiah
In the last decade, the treatment of dysplastic Barrett's esophagus has evolved into primarily endoscopic therapy. Many techniques have become well-established to destroy or remove the mucosal lining of Barrett's esophagus. One of the newest therapies, cryospray ablation, has become a modality to treat both dysplastic Barrett's esophagus as well as esophageal carcinoma. In endoscopic applications, the cryogen used is either liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide which causes tissue destruction through rapid freeze-thaw cycles...
