Antibiotic use in prevention of anal fistulas following incision and drainage of anorectal abscesses: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Am J Surg 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Centre for the Advancement of Minimally Invasive Surgery (CAMIS), Royal Alexandra Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Electronic address:

Background: Treatment of anorectal abscesses continues to revolve around early surgical drainage and control of perianal sepsis. Yet even with prompt drainage, abscess recurrence and postoperative fistula formation rates are as high as 40% within 12 months. These complications are thought to be associated with inadequate drainage, elevated bacterial load, or a noncryptoglandular etiology of disease. Read More

Addressing the empty pelvic syndrome following total pelvic exenteration: does mesh reconstruction help?

Colorectal Dis 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, Australia.

Aim: Perineal wound complications and pelvic abscesses remain a major source of morbidity after total pelvic exenteration. The void created in the pelvis after these multi-visceral resections leads to fluid accumulation and translocation of bowel within the pelvic cavity, which may increase the risk of pelvic abscess, perineal fluid discharge with perineal wound dehiscence and prolonged ileus. This study describes a novel technique using degradable synthetic mesh with overlying omentum to preclude small bowel and fill the empty space after total pelvic exenteration, and aimed to investigate the rate of pelvic abscess and perineal wound-related complications in this group.

Systematic review of single-incision versus conventional multiport laparoscopic surgery for sigmoid colon and rectal cancer.

World J Surg Oncol 2018 Nov 10;16(1):220. Epub 2018 Nov 10.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Cancer Hospital of China Medical University, Liaoning Cancer Hospital and Institute, No 44 Xiaoheyan Road, Dadong District, Shenyang, 110042, Liaoning Province, People's Republic of China.

Efficacy of irrigation tubes in the management of para rectal cavities associated with complex fistula-in-ano.

BMC Surg 2018 Nov 9;18(1):95. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Colombo, P.O. Box 271, Kynsey Road, Colombo 8, Western Province, Sri Lanka.

Background: Surgical management of complex perianal fistula associated with pararectal cavities can be challenging. We hypothesised that healing of the pararectal cavities prior to healing of the fistula leads to a better outcome. We aimed to assess the efficacy of irrigation catheters in the healing of pararectal cavities associated with fistula-in-ano. Read More

Is it Possible to Successfully Treat Locally Advanced Colon Cancer Using Pre-Operative Chemoradiotherapy?

Clin Endosc 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Internal Medicine, Kosin University College of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Pre-operative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) is a preferable treatment option for patients with locally advanced rectal cancer. However, few data are available regarding pre-operative CRT for locally advanced colon cancer. Here, we describe two cases of successful treatment with pre-operative CRT and establish evidence supporting this treatment option in patients with locally advanced colon cancer. Read More

Congenital anal atresia with rectovestibular fistula, scoliosis, unilateral renal agenesis, and finger defect (VACTERL association) in a patient with partial bicornuate uterus and distal vaginal atresia: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(45):e12822

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Peking Union Medical College, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing, P. R. of China.

Rationale: Vertebral defect, anal atresia, cardiac defect, tracheoesophageal fistula/esophageal atresia, renal defect, and limb defect (VACTERL) association and Müllerian duct anomalies are rare conditions. We present a rare condition with the co-occurrence of the VACTERL association and Müllerian duct hypoplasia to characterize patients' clinical presentations, outcomes, and treatment.

Patient Concerns: An 11-year-old girl presented to our hospital with severe lower abdominal pain, lower vaginal atresia with enlargement of the upper vagina and a bicornuate uterus with a Y-shaped uterine cavity filled with hematometra on pelvic magnetic resonance imaging. Read More

Treatment of Complicated Anal Fistula by an Endofistular Polyurethane-Sponge Vacuum Therapy: A Pilot Study.

Dis Colon Rectum 2018 12;61(12):1435-1441

Medical Department 1, University Hospital Dresden, Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden), Dresden, Germany.

Background: Treatment of supra- and transsphincteric anal fistulas remains a clinical challenge because current treatment results are variable and potentially endanger sphincter function.

Objective: Based on positive results of endoluminal polyurethane-sponge vacuum therapy in the upper and lower GI tract, a new system for endofistular vacuum therapy was developed for anal fistulas to utilize vacuum therapy to remove the endofistular pseudoepithelium and to induce granulation in the fistula tract.

Design: This study is based on a prospective case series. Read More

Consequences of Increasing Complexity in Anorectal Surgery Performed at an Academic Center.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Mar;62(3):343-347

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Cleveland Clinic Florida, Weston, Florida.

Background: Anorectal surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures with varying complexity. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education Review Committee for Colon and Rectal Surgery recommends minimum case numbers (60) for 1-year specialty trainees in 6 categories of anorectal surgery, with definitions for procedural complexity.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess the scope of anorectal procedures and propose a stratification of procedures based on a consensus of levels of difficulty, as well as to identify a predictive charge cutoff suggestive of procedural complexity. Read More

Transition of care: a growing concern in adult patients born with colorectal anomalies.

Pediatr Surg Int 2019 Feb 3;35(2):233-237. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, International Center for Colorectal and Urogenital Care, Children's Hospital Colorado, University of Colorado, 13123 East 16th Avenue, Anschutz Medical Campus, Box 323, Aurora, CO, 80045, USA.

Purpose: Traditionally, the care of children and adults has been arbitrarily separated into pediatric and adult medicine and surgery. Despite progress in pediatric surgical techniques, patients born with congenital anomalies still suffer from significant functional sequelae, which persist into adulthood. We aim to describe some of the most common problems experienced by adult patients with congenital colorectal malformations. Read More

Rectothecal fistula complicating anterior sacral meningocele repair.

Department of Radiology, University of Washington, 1959 NE Pacific St, Seattle, WA 98195, USA.

We present a case of an iatrogenic rectothecal fistula in a 34-year-old man who underwent repair of a congenital anterior sacral meningocele, intraoperatively complicated by rectal perforation. Postoperatively, the patient developed symptoms of meningitis prompting concern for the cerebrospinal fluid leak. Subsequent workup with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a postoperative pseudomeningocele and fistulization with an abdominal fluid collection. Read More

Update on the Natural Course of Fistulizing Perianal Crohn's Disease in a Population-Based Cohort.

Inflamm Bowel Dis 2018 Oct 19. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.

Background: This study sought to re-estimate the cumulative incidence of perianal or rectovaginal fistulas and the associated proctectomy rate in the prebiologic era vs the biologic era using a population-based cohort of Crohn's disease (CD) patients.

Methods: The medical records of 414 residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota, who were diagnosed with CD between 1970 and 2010 were reviewed. The cumulative incidence of perianal or rectovaginal fistulas from time of CD diagnosis and the cumulative rate of proctectomy from date of first perianal or rectovaginal fistula diagnosis were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.
