INTRODUCTION: This document is a summary of the French Intergroup guidelines regarding the management of rectal adenocarcinoma published in February 2016. METHOD: This collaborative work, under the auspices of most of the French medical societies involved in the management of rectal cancer, is based on the previous guidelines published in 2013. Recommendations are graded into 3 categories according to the level of evidence of data found in the literature. RESULTS: In agreement with the ESMO guidelines (2013), non-metastatic rectal cancers have been stratified in 4 risk groups according to endoscopy, MRI or endorectal-ultrasonography...

The use of a mandibular advancement device (MAD) increases the activity of the temporo-mandibular (TM) complex and masseter (MM) muscles with the risk of reducing treatment compliance. Predictors of treatment outcome are of importance in selecting patients who might benefit from MAD without side effects. The role of mandibular advancement (MA) during drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) is controversial. In three cases (BMI < 30) affected by non-severe OSAS (AHI < 30 e/h), we recorded the surface EMG signal of MM activity during DISE...

Conventional white light endoscopy remains the current standard in routine clinical practice for early detection of gastric cancer. However, it may not accurately diagnose preneoplastic gastric lesions. The technological advancements in the field of endoscopic imaging for gastric lesions are fast growing. This article reviews currently available advanced endoscopic imaging modalities, in particular chromoendoscopy, narrow band imaging and confocal laser endomicroscopy, and their corresponding evidence shown to improve diagnosis of preneoplastic gastric lesions...

Duodenocolic fistula (DCF) is a rare complication of colon cancer with only 70 cases reported since its first description in 1862. Owing to its rarity, current knowledge on DCF still relies on single case reports. We present 2 cases of DCF from a hepatic flexure adenocarcinoma demonstrated initially by endoscopy. 2 adult male patients were admitted due to a 2-3-month history of right-upper quadrant pain, vomiting, diarrhoea and a palpable right upper quadrant mass. In both cases, a circumferential, friable mass was noted on upper endoscopy at the second portion of the duodenum, leading to the ascending colon...

BACKGROUND: Benign tumors of the nasal cavity represent a large variety of different histopathological entities. Although advances in nasal endoscopy over the past couple of decades have made it possible to detect the vast majority of these lesions, accurate diagnosis and proper management can be delayed since they are misdiagnosed as inflammatory paranasal sinus disease or simple epistaxis. OBJECTIVES: The aims of the present study are to determine the relative incidence of benign tumor of the nasal cavity and to provide typical endoscopic features of common tumors...

The costs of medical care are rising and media has focused attention on the costs of colonoscopy as a potential cause. A major component of procedural costs is the sedation, which is a combination of the drugs used and who administers them. An analysis of advanced endoscopic procedures revealed that the rate of sedation failure was significantly lower among patients administered sedation by anesthesia compared with patients who received moderate sedation administered by endoscopy staff. The authors argue that all endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) should be performed with anesthesia-administered sedation...

Endoscopy of the airway is a valuable tool for the evaluation and management of airway disease. It can be used to evaluate many different bronchopulmonary diseases including airway foreign bodies, tumors, infectious and inflammatory conditions, airway stenosis, and bronchopulmonary hemorrhage. Traditionally, options for evaluation were limited to flexible and rigid bronchoscopy. Recently, more sophisticated technology has led to the development of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB)...

A 63-year-old man was seen by his family doctor for epigastric distress, and he was referred to our hospital with a diagnosis of gastric cancer. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed type 3 gastric cancer(por1>tub2>tub1)at the lesser curvature of the stomach. Computed tomography suggested thickening of the wall of the stomach at the lesser curvature and bulky lymph node swelling. After a diagnosis of cT4a cN2M0, cStage III B advanced gastric cancer, we treated him with neoadjuvant chemotherapy consisting of 3 courses of SOX(oxaliplatin 100mg/m / 2 on day 1, S-1 120mg/day on day 1-14, followed by 7 days of rest)...

We report a case of locally far-advanced colon cancer resected by laparoscopic surgery after colonic stent insertion and neoadjuvant chemotherapy. A 71-year-old man with obstructive symptoms was admitted to our hospital in July 2015. CT revealed a sigmoid colon tumor infiltrating the retroperitoneum and small intestine. Lower gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a sigmoid colon cancer. Self-expandable metallic stent insertion for obstructive colon cancer alleviated the patient's symptoms quickly. Four courses of neoadjuvant chemotherapy(XELOX)reduced the primary tumor in size, allowing for laparoscopic surgical resection...

A 62-year-old woman visited our hospital because of dysphagia. She was diagnosed with upper-middle esophageal type 4 cancer, which was 9 cm in length, according to the results of endoscopy. Squamous cell carcinoma was demonstrated using endoscopic biopsy. A CT scan revealed that the tumor had directly invaded into the trachea(cT4). Chemoradiotherapy(CRT) (5-FU and CDDP with 50 Gy of radiation)was administered. Although CT after CRT resulted in shrinkage of the tumor and no further tracheal invasion, esophageal stenosis remained...
