Purpose: The delayed diagnosis of colorectal cancer (CRC) may be attributable to sociodemographic characteristics, to aspects of tumour histopathology or to the functioning of the health system. We seek to determine which of these factors most influences prolonged patient-attributable delay (PPAD) in the diagnosis and treatment of CRC. Materials and method: A prospective, multicentre observational study was conducted in 22 Spanish hospitals. In total, 1,785 patients were recruited to the study between 2010 and 2012 and underwent elective or urgent surgery...

BACKGROUND: Lymph node (LN) retrieval and assessment is essential for accurate staging and treatment planning in colorectal cancer (CRC). According to U.S. National Cancer Institute recommendations, the minimal number of LNs needed for accurately staging of node-negative CRC is 12. Awareness and implementation of the guidelines has been shown to improve after assigning an opinion leader who has a special interest in CRC. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the impact of dialogue between surgeons and pathologists in LN evaluation...

Together with surgery and radiotherapy, systemic treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy and molecular targeted agents is one of the main therapeutic pillars in the treatment of soft-tissue sarcomas and is the mainstay of treatment in patients with advanced or metastatic disease. Unlike other more common malignancies such as breast and colorectal cancer, the role of chemotherapy when used in the adjuvant setting in soft-tissue sarcomas is less well defined. Results from prior studies have been conflicting, in part due to the heterogeneity and rarity of the disease, and large-scale meta-analysis has been performed to address this issue...

BACKGROUND: Ambulatory surgery for anorectal procedures has been proven to be safe and effective. Specific perioperative pathways combining multiple interventions have been shown to optimize recovery and outcomes associated with inpatient colorectal surgery. However, there are no major studies describing and evaluating a standardized protocol for ambulatory anorectal surgery. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of a modified enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol for ambulatory anorectal surgery...

Background/Aims: Because of the national screening program for colorectal carcinoma in The Netherlands, the number of colonoscopies has increased. In case of incomplete colonoscopy, computed tomography colonography (CTC) and double-balloon colonoscopy (DBc) are alternative options. This study evaluated cecal intubation rate and pathology detection rate in the previously unexplored part of the colon, complication rate of DBc, and CTC results after incomplete colonoscopy. Methods: Retrospective observational study in a tertiary referral hospital regarding DBc and CTC reports from cases with incomplete colonoscopy...

AIM: Extraperitoneal rectal resection combined with complete peritonectomy of the pelvis in patients with peritoneal metastases is associated with a high rate of morbidity and mortality due to anastomotic leakage (AL). Therefore, many centers tend to perform loop ileostomy to reduce the clinical impact of AL. The aim of this study was to analyze the need for protective stoma creation in this patient group to avoid major complications and mortality in the case of AL. METHOD: We analyzed 53 patients who underwent extraperitoneal rectal resection from 409 consecutive patients treated with cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) at our department between January 1997 and December 2016...

BACKGROUND: Scoring systems were developed to stratify patients with colorectal liver metastases considered for liver resection into different risk groups. Such scores have never been evaluated in recurrent liver metastases. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether these scores are applicable to patients with recurrent colorectal liver metastases and treated with curative intent. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data from 375 consecutive patients who underwent liver surgery for colorectal liver metastases between June 2010 and August 2015...
