INTRODUCTION: Ano-rectal abscesses are common. They however usually do not present with abdominal symptoms. CT although useful is not routinely carried out. Finding of Pneumo-retro-peritoneum with ischio-rectal abscess is rare. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a diabetic gentleman who presented with abdominal pain and distension and was found to have ischio-rectal abscess on perianal examination. Although initially suspected to have acute abdomen due to perforated viscus, CT scan revealed pneumo-retro-peritoneum which appeared to arise due to the abscess...

AIM: In patients with rectal cancer, surgery and chemoradiotherapy may affect anal sphincter function. Few studies have evaluated anorectal function after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (n-CRT) and/or transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of n-CRT and TEM on anorectal function. METHOD: Thirty-seven patients with rectal cancer underwent anorectal manometry and Wexner scoring for faecal incontinence at baseline, after n-CRT (cT2-T3N0 cancer) and at 4 and 12 months after surgery...

Although we have seen revolutionary changes with multi-disciplinary management of patients with rectal cancer, the evaluation of genito-urinary sequelae remains of great concern. Precise pre-operative evaluation with validated scores allows detection of urinary disorders in 16 to 23% of patients, and sexual disorders in nearly 35% of men and 50% of women. Regardless of the surgical approach, it is fundamental to respect the autonomic innervation during total mesorectal excision in order to prevent these sequelae...

BACKGROUND: Anal stricture is a disabling condition which is often unresponsive to conservative medical management. The complications of surgical procedures such as dilatations and anoplasty make it a formidable treatment challenge. Through this case, we report and explore a new medical treatment for ano-rectal strictures with an analogy to Plummer Vinson syndrome. A 69-year-old male presented with chronic constipation, rectal pain, and easy fatigability. The physical exam was negative for anal fissure and a digital rectal examination could not be completed because an index finger could not be advanced through the narrowed anus...

INTRODUCTION: Ano-rectal melanoma is an uncommon finding in patients complaining of rectal bleeding and/or anal mass often misinterpreted as a haemorroidal pile. CASE REPORT: A 55-years-old woman, complaining of rectal bleeding, frequent anal pain and anal mass suspected for haemorroidal thrombosis was referred for evaluation and possible treatment. A brown polypoid mass arising from the anal canal/lower rectum with a maximum diameter of 6 cm was diagnosed. The hystological examination of the neoplasm, transanally removed, revealed the presence of a polypoid melanoma partially involving the resection margin...

Once considered an obscure tumor entity with poor prognosis, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are nowadays recognized as the most common mesenchymal tumors of the alimentary tract. GISTs differ from other mesenchymal neoplasms at pathology since 90% of them exhibit strong immunohistochemical staining for KIT, a tyrosinase kinase growth factor receptor. In the early 2000s, the ability of imatinib mesylate, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, to inhibit KIT established a new paradigm for cancer treatment. A reduction in lesion size may not be observed or may appear many months after therapy; thus, tumor response criteria alternative to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors were developed...

BACKGROUND: The extraperitoneal rectal dissection via a transanal approach facilitates the mesorectal dissection. The retroperitoneal approach for mesocolic excision may also offer some similar advantages. To complete the lymphadenectomy of extraperitoneal mesorectal resection, we developed an innovative approach for upper rectal and mesocolic excision via an exclusive retroperitoneal dissection using a single-port access at the site of the future stomy. METHODS: This study was a prospective pilot study and was conducted between 2013 and 2015 at two oncologic centers...

UNLABELLED: Introdution: Variation in shape, position and treatment response of both tumor and organs at risk are major challenges for accurate dose delivery in radiotherapy. Adaptive radiotherapy (ART) has been proposed to customize the treatment to these motion/response patterns of the individual patients, but increases workload and thereby challenges clinical implementation. This paper reviews strategies and workflows for clinical and in silico implemented ART for prostate, bladder, gynecological (gyne) and ano-rectal cancers...
