Using fisher-contributed secondary fins to fill critical shark-fisheries data gaps.

Conserv Biol 2021 06 4;35(3):991-1001. Epub 2021 Feb 4.

Institute of Envrironment, Department of Biological Sciences, Florida International University, 3000 NE 151st Street, North Miami, FL, 33181, USA.

Developing-world shark fisheries are typically not assessed or actively managed for sustainability; one fundamental obstacle is the lack of species and size-composition catch data. We tested and implemented a new and potentially widely applicable approach for collecting these data: mandatory submission of low-value secondary fins (anal fins) from landed sharks by fishers and use of the fins to reconstruct catch species and size. Visual and low-cost genetic identification were used to determine species composition, and linear regression was applied to total length and anal fin base length for catch-size reconstruction.

Abnormal Neuronal Response to Rectal and Anal Stimuli in Patients Treated for Distal Rectal Cancer With High-Dose Chemoradiotherapy Followed By Watchful Waiting.

Dis Colon Rectum 2020 09;63(9):1234-1241

Department of Surgery, Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus, Denmark.

Background: Watchful waiting in patients with rectal cancer with complete clinical response after chemoradiation therapy has gained increased popularity to avoid morbidity and mortality associated with surgery. Irradiation of the pelvis causes bowel dysfunction, but the effect on anorectal sensory function remains obscure in this patient category.

Objective: The aim of this study was to characterize the sensory pathways of the gut-brain axis in patients with rectal cancer treated solely with chemoradiation therapy (nonconventional regime/dose) compared with healthy volunteers. Read More

Dis Colon Rectum 2020 07;63(7):890-896

Division of Infectious Diseases, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York.

Background: People living with HIV have high rates of anal human papillomavirus infection and anal precancer/cancer.

Comparison of Ligation of the Intersphincteric Fistula Tract and BioLIFT for the Treatment of Transsphincteric Anal Fistula: A Retrospective Analysis.

Dis Colon Rectum 2020 03;63(3):365-370

Department of Surgery, The Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract is a sphincter-preserving technique for the treatment of anal fistulas. The BioLIFT modification involves the placement of a biologic mesh in the intersphincteric plane. Advocates of this modification state improved healing rates, however evidence for this is lacking, and this approach costs significantly more. Read More
