Reconsideration of the Anterior Surgical Plane of Total Mesorectal Excision for Rectal Cancer.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 May;62(5):639-641

Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Third Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China.

Introduction: Previous studies on total mesorectal excision suggested dissection anterior to Denonvilliers' fascia, which might lead to intraoperative pelvic autonomic nerves injury and a high incidence of urogenital dysfunction.

Technique: We dissected 4 cases of cadavers, mainly focusing on anatomy of Denonvilliers' fascia, to study the relationship between Denonvilliers' fascia and rectum. In practice, instead of dissection 1 cm above peritoneal reflection, dissection of the peritoneum was performed at the lowest level of peritoneal reflection during laparoscopic resection for mid-low rectal cancer.

Assessing Hereditary Colorectal Cancer Referral Patterns to a Tertiary Care Center: A Novel Approach Using Geographic Information System Mapping.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Background: Patients and their family members with hereditary colorectal cancer require longitudinal follow-up that is best achieved through a dedicated program with a registry. However, referrals for these conditions remain poor. Geographic information systems technology is a novel method to evaluate geographic variation in multiple realms but is being used more in health care. Read More

Health and Economic Impact of Intensive Surveillance for Distant Recurrence After Curative Treatment of Colon Cancer: A Mathematical Modeling Study.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Mar 21. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

Background: Intensive surveillance strategies are currently recommended for patients after curative treatment of colon cancer, with the aim of secondary prevention of recurrence. Yet, intensive surveillance has not yielded improvements in overall patient survival compared with minimum follow-up, and more intensive surveillance may be costlier.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to estimate the quality-adjusted life-years, economic costs, and cost-effectiveness of various surveillance strategies after curative treatment of colon cancer. Read More

Necessity of Genetic Evaluation of Metachronous Metastases of Colorectal Cancer: Quantitative Analysis of Genetic Discordance Between Metachronous Metastases and Radically Resected Primary Colorectal Cancers Using Next-Generation Sequencing.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Department of Surgery, Chungnam National University Hospital, Daejeon, Republic of Korea.

Background: Mutation analyses provide the basis of selecting an appropriate target agent for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer. However, metachronous metastases developed after the treatment of primary tumor could create significant opportunities for different genetic profiles relative to the primary tumors.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess the necessity of genetic evaluation of metachronous metastases; we performed a quantitative analysis of genetic discordance between metachronous metastases and radically resected primary colorectal cancers using next-generation sequencing.

How Reliable Is CT Scan in Staging Right Colon Cancer?

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Mar 8. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

Background: The observation of inferior oncologic outcomes after surgery for proximal colon cancers has led to the investigation of alternative treatment strategies, including surgical procedures and neoadjuvant systemic chemotherapy in selective patients.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of CT staging in proximal colon cancer in detecting unfavorable pathologic features that may aid in the selection of ideal candidates with unfavorable pathologic features for alternative treatment strategies, including extended lymph node dissection and/or neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

Design: This was a retrospective consecutive series. Read More

Organ Preservation Among Patients With Clinically Node-Positive Rectal Cancer: Is It Really More Dangerous?

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Background: Select patients with complete clinical response to chemoradiation have been managed without radical surgery. The presence of radiologic evidence of nodal metastases at baseline could be a risk factor for local tumor regrowth, more advanced stage at the time of recurrence, and worse distant metastases-free survival.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes of patients with baseline node-positive and node-negative cancer after neoadjuvant chemoradiation and complete clinical response managed nonoperatively. Read More

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Digestive Diseases and Surgery Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio.

Introduction: Patients undergoing an IPAA experience a completely different physiology of defecation than when they had a rectum. The new "normal" is poorly appreciated and incompletely understood, and the lack of understanding has implications for pouch function. This technical note lays out the physiology of defecation with an ileal pouch and its implications for patients and surgeons. Read More

Randomized Clinical Trial: A Normocaloric Low-Fiber Diet the Day Before Colonoscopy Is the Most Effective Approach to Bowel Preparation in Colorectal Cancer Screening Colonoscopy.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Apr;62(4):491-497

Department of Medicine, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain.

Background: Clinical guidelines recommend either a clear-liquid diet or a low-fiber diet for colonoscopy preparation. Participants in a screening program are usually motivated healthy individuals in which a good tolerability is important to improve adherence to potential surveillance colonoscopies.

Objective: Our aim was to assess whether or not a normocaloric low-fiber diet followed the day before a screening colonoscopy compromises the efficacy of bowel cleansing and may improve the tolerability of bowel preparation. Read More

Academic Hospitals Discharge Fewer Patients to Postacute Care Facilities After Colorectal Resection.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Apr;62(4):483-490

Department of Surgery, Michigan Medicine, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Background: Discharge to a nonhome destination (ie, skilled nursing facility, subacute rehabilitation, or long-term care facility) after surgery is associated with increased mortality and higher costs and is less desirable to patients than discharge to home.

Objective: We sought to identify modifiable hospital-level factors that may reduce rates of nonhome discharge after colorectal resection.

Design: This was a retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing colorectal resection in the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative (July 2012 to June 2015). Read More

Prognostic Impact of pT Stage and Peritoneal Invasion in Locally Advanced Colon Cancer.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Mar 4. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Background: TNM stage has been identified as an independent variable for local recurrence and survival after colon cancer resection. It is still unclear whether peritoneal invasion (pT4a) is a risk factor for adverse oncologic outcome or whether these patients have better results compared with contiguous organs infiltration (pT4b), independent from nodal status (pN).

Objective: The purpose of this study was to analyze whether peritoneal invasion is an independent risk factor for worse oncologic outcome after curative colon cancer resection. Read More

Quality of Life and Persistent Symptoms After Uncomplicated Acute Diverticulitis.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 May;62(5):608-614

Department of Surgery, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Background: Although acute diverticulitis and its recurrence are well studied, little is known about the period after these attacks have passed. Many patients appear to be affected by persistent symptoms that impair quality of life. The few published studies on this topic are mostly limited by the lack of CT confirmation of the acute diverticulitis diagnosis, low numbers of patients, or cross-sectional design. Read More
