Does the subspecialty of the surgeon performing primary colonic resection influence the outcome of patients with hepatic metastases referred for resection? (1/111)

OBJECTIVE: To compare resection rates and outcome of patients subsequently referred with hepatic metastases whose initial colon cancers were resected by surgeons with different specialty interests. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Variation in practice among noncolorectal specialist surgeons has led to recommendations that colorectal cancers should be treated by surgeons trained in colorectal surgery or surgical oncology. METHODS: The resectability of metastases, the frequency and pattern of recurrence after resection, and the length of survival were compared in patients referred to a single center for resection of colorectal hepatic metastases. The patients were divided into those whose colorectal resection had been performed by general surgeons (GS) with other subspecialty interests (n = 108) or by colorectal specialists (CS; n = 122). RESULTS No differences were observed with respect to age, sex, tumor stage, site of primary tumor, or frequency of synchronous metastases. Comparing the GS group with the CS group, resectable disease was identified in 26% versus 66%, with tumor recurrence after a median follow-up of 19 months in 75% versus 44%, respectively. Recurrences involving bowel or lymph nodes accounted for 55% versus 24% of all recurrences, with respective median survivals of 14 months versus 26 months. CONCLUSION: Fewer patients referred by general surgeons had resectable liver disease. After surgery, recurrent tumor was more likely to develop in the GS group; their overall outcome was worse than that of the CS group. This observation is partly explained by a lower local recurrence rate in the CS group.  (+info)

Preoperative radiotherapy combined with total mesorectal excision for resectable rectal cancer. (2/111)

BACKGROUND: Short-term preoperative radiotherapy and total mesorectal excision have each been shown to improve local control of disease in patients with resectable rectal cancer. We conducted a multicenter, randomized trial to determine whether the addition of preoperative radiotherapy increases the benefit of total mesorectal excision. METHODS: We randomly assigned 1861 patients with resectable rectal cancer either to preoperative radiotherapy (5 Gy on each of five days) followed by total mesorectal excision (924 patients) or to total mesorectal excision alone (937 patients). The trial was conducted with the use of standardization and quality-control measures to ensure the consistency of the radiotherapy, surgery, and pathological techniques. RESULTS: Of the 1861 patients randomly assigned to one of the two treatment groups, 1805 were eligible to participate. The overall rate of survival at two years among the eligible patients was 82.0 percent in the group assigned to both radiotherapy and surgery and 81.8 percent in the group assigned to surgery alone (P=0.84). Among the 1748 patients who underwent a macroscopically complete local resection, the rate of local recurrence at two years was 5.3 percent. The rate of local recurrence at two years was 2.4 percent in the radiotherapy-plus-surgery group and 8.2 percent in the surgery-only group (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Short-term preoperative radiotherapy reduces the risk of local recurrence in patients with rectal cancer who undergo a standardized total mesorectal excision.  (+info)

Use of surgical procedures and adjuvant therapy in rectal cancer treatment: a population-based study. (3/111)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the use of surgical procedures by tumor location and compliance with adjuvant therapy recommendations by tumor stage. The study was conducted in a population-based setting to identify target patient groups for improved care. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Rectal cancer therapy potentially involves similar patients receiving different treatments. Low anterior resection (LAR), sparing the anal sphincter, and abdominoperineal resection (APR), ablating the anal sphincter, offer equivalent local recurrence and survival rates but may differ in quality of life measurements. The 1990 NIH Consensus Conference recommended that patients with stage II and III rectal cancer receive radiation and chemotherapy in conjunction with surgical resection, but this is not uniformly applied. To interpret the use of these therapies, information on tumor location in the rectum, which is rarely known in population-based studies, is necessary. Patient, hospital, or surgeon characteristics may influence which procedure is performed and whether adjuvant therapy is given. METHODS: Information about primary, invasive rectal adenocarcinomas diagnosed between 1994 to 1996 in 13 California counties was obtained from the regional cancer registry. Tumor location, determined from abstracted medical text, was divided into the upper, middle, and lower rectum. Hospitals were characterized by teaching status, number of beds, and cancer center designation. Surgeons were categorized as general or colorectal surgeons. Factors associated with a higher use of LAR versus APR in patients with middle and lower rectum tumors and factors associated with a higher use of NIH-recommended therapy in patients with stage II and III disease were separately analyzed. RESULTS: Among 637 eligible patients, APR was used in 22% of those with middle rectum tumors and 55% of those with lower rectum tumors. Factors significantly associated with a higher use of LAR included female gender, middle rectum location, and treatment in a major teaching hospital versus a nonteaching hospital. Recommended therapy was received by 44% of patients with stage II disease and 60% of those with stage III disease. Factors significantly associated with higher compliance with NIH recommendations included age younger than 60 versus older than 75, age 60 to 75 years versus older than 75, tumor location in the middle or lower rectum versus the upper rectum, stage III disease, and treatment at a teaching hospital versus a nonteaching hospital. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with similar rectal cancers receive different treatments independent of tumor stage or location. This may result in more APRs performed for middle and lower rectum tumors than necessary and less adequate treatment for stage II and III tumors than recommended.  (+info)

Management of obstetric anal sphincter injury: a systematic review & national practice survey. (4/111)

BACKGROUND: We aim to establish the evidence base for the recognition and management of obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASI) and to compare this with current practice amongst UK obstetricians and coloproctologists. METHODS: A systematic review of the literature and a postal questionnaire survey of consultant obstetricians, trainee obstetricians and consultant coloproctologists was carried out. RESULTS: We found a wide variation in experience of repairing acute anal sphincter injury. The group with largest experience were consultant obstetricians (46.5% undertaking > or = 5 repairs/year), whilst only 10% of responding colorectal surgeons had similar levels of experience (p < 0.001). There was extensive misunderstanding in terms of the definition of obstetric anal sphincter injuries. Overall, trainees had a greater knowledge of the correct classification (p < 0.01). Observational studies suggest that a new 'overlap' repair using PDS sutures with antibiotic cover gives better functional results. However, our literature search found only one randomised controlled trial (RCT) on the technique of repair of OASI, which showed no difference in incidence of anal incontinence at three months. Despite this, there was a wide variation in practice, with 337(50%) consultants, 82 (55%) trainees and 80 (89%) coloproctologists already using the 'overlap' method for repair of a torn EAS (p < 0.001). Although over 50% of colorectal surgeons would undertake long-term follow-up of their patients, this was the practice of less than 10% of obstetricians (p < 0.001). Whilst over 70% of coloproctologists would recommend an elective caesarean section in a subsequent pregnancy, only 22% of obstetric consultants and 14% of trainees (p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: An agreed classification of OASI, development of national guidelines, formalised training, multidisciplinary management and further definitive research is strongly recommended.  (+info)

Dose surgical sub-specialization influence survival in patients with colorectal cancer? (5/111)

AIM: To perform a review of patients with colorectal cancer to a community hospital and to compare the risk-adjusted survival between patients managed in general surgical units versus a colorectal unit. METHODS: The study evaluated all patients with colorectal cancer referred to either general surgical units or a colorectal unit from 1/1996 to 6/2001. These results were compared to a historical control group treated within general surgical units at the same hospital from 1/1989 to 12/1994. A Kaplan-Meier survival analysis compared the overall survivals (all-cause mortality) between the groups. A Cox proportional hazards model was used to determine the influence of a number of independent variables on survival. These variables included age, ASA score, disease stage, emergency surgery, adjuvant chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy, disease location, and surgical unit. RESULTS: There were 974 patients involved in this study. There were no significant differences in the demographic details for the three groups. Patients in the colorectal group were more likely to have rectal cancer and Stage I cancers, and less likely to have Stage II cancers. Patients treated in the colorectal group had a significantly higher overall 5-year survival when compared with the general surgical group and the historical control group (56 % versus 45 % and 40 % respectively, P<0.01). Survival regression analysis identified age, ASA score, disease stage, adjuvant chemotherapy, and treatment in a colorectal unit (Hazards ratio: 0.67; 95 % CI: 0.53 to 0.84, P =0.0005), as significant independent predictors of survival. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that there may be a survival advantage for patients with colon and rectal cancers being treated within a specialist colorectal surgical unit.  (+info)

Referral letters to colorectal surgeons: the impact of peer-mediated feedback. (6/111)

BACKGROUND: General practitioners (GPs) select few patients for specialist investigation. Having selected a patient, the GP writes a referral letter which serves primarily to convey concerns about the patient and offer background information. Referral letters to specialists sometimes provide an inadequate amount of information. The content of referral letters to colorectal surgeons can now be scored based on the views of GPs about the ideal content of referral letters. AIM: To determine if written feedback about the contents of GP referral letters mediated by local peers was acceptable to GPs and how this feedback influenced the content and variety of their referrals. DESIGN: A non-randomised control trial. SETTING: GPs in North Nottinghamshire. METHOD: In a controlled trial, 26 GPs were offered written feedback about the documented contents of their colorectal referral letters over 1 year. The feedback was designed and mediated by two nominated local GPs. The contents of referral letters were measured in the year before and 6 months after feedback. GPs were asked about the style of the feedback. The contents of referral letters and the proportion of patients with organic pathology were compared for the feedback GPs and other local GPs who could be identified as having used the same hospital for their referrals in the period before and after feedback. RESULTS: All GPs declared the method of feedback to be acceptable but raised concerns about their own performance, and some were upset by the experience. None withdrew from the project. There was a difference of 7.1 points (95% confidence interval = 1.9 to 12.2) in the content scores between the feedback group and the controls after adjusting for baseline differences between the groups. Of the GPs who referred to the same hospital before and after feedback, the feedback GPs referred more patients with organic pathology than other local colleagues. CONCLUSIONS: GPs welcome feedback about the details appearing on their referral letters, although peer comparisons may not always lead to changes in practice. However, in some cases feedback improves the content of GP referral letters and may also impact on the type of patients referred for investigation by specialists.  (+info)

Pharmacokinetics and tissue penetration of single-dose cefotetan used for antimicrobial prophylaxis in patients undergoing colorectal surgery. (7/111)

The pharmacokinetics and tissue penetration of cefotetan were studied after a single injection of 2 g given intravenously for antimicrobial prophylaxis to 16 consecutive patients undergoing colorectal surgery. Concentrations in tissue greater than or equal to the MIC for 90% of the main pathogens tested were considered adequate. The elimination half-life at beta phase was 4.6 +/- 1.4 h, the total body clearance was 0.75 +/- 0.19 ml/kg/min, and the volume of distribution was 260 +/- 71 ml/kg. At the time of incision (33 +/- 16 min after the injection), cefotetan concentrations were 14.2 +/- 7 micrograms/g in abdominal-wall fat, 16.4 +/- 1 micrograms/g in epiploic fat, and 163 +/- 62 mg/liter in serum. At the time of surgical anastomosis (151 +/- 54 min), cefotetan concentrations were 33.3 +/- 6 micrograms/g in the colonic wall and 73 +/- 34 mg/liter in serum. Upon closure of the abdomen (216 +/- 76 min), cefotetan concentrations were 6.3 +/- 3 micrograms/g in abdominal-wall fat, 6.1 +/- 4 micrograms/g in epiploic fat, and 64 +/- 38 mg/liter in serum. Cefotetan tissue penetration was 10% into abdominal and epiploic fat and 46% into the colonic wall. Levels in tissue were compared with the MIC for 90% of the most frequently encountered pathogenic germs (Staphylococcus aureus, Bacteroides fragilis, and Escherichia coli). Adequate concentrations in tissue were obtained up to anastomosis but not upon closure. The authors therefore recommend the injection of an additional dose of 1 g before closure in order to ensure optimal efficacy throughout the surgical procedure.  (+info)

Anterior resection for rectal cancer with mesorectal excision: a prospective evaluation of 622 patients. (8/111)

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to review the operative results and oncological outcomes of anterior resection for rectal and rectosigmoid cancer. Comparison was made between patients with total mesorectal excision (TME) for mid and distal cancer and partial mesorectal excision (PME) for proximal cancer, when a 4- to 5-cm mesorectal margin could be achieved. Risk factors for local recurrence and survival were also analyzed. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Anterior resection has become the preferred treatment option rectal cancer. TME with sharp dissection has been shown to be associated with a low local recurrence rate. Controversies still exist as to the need for TME in more proximal tumor. METHODS: Resection of primary rectal and rectosigmoid cancer was performed in 786 patients from August 1993 to July 2002. Of these, 622 patients (395 men and 227 women; median age, 67 years) underwent anterior resection. The technique of perimesorectal dissection was used. Patients with mid and distal rectal cancer were treated with TME while PME was performed for those with more proximal tumors. Prospective data on the postoperative results and oncological outcomes were reviewed. Risk factors for anastomotic leakage, local recurrence, and survival of the patients were analyzed with univariate and multivariate analysis. RESULTS: The median level of the tumor was 8 cm from the anal verge (range, 2.5-20 cm) and curative resection was performed in 563 patients (90.5%). TME was performed in 396 patients (63.7%). Significantly longer median operating time, more blood loss, and a longer hospital stay were found in patients with TME. The overall operative mortality and morbidity rates were 1.8% and 32.6%, respectively, and there were no significant differences between those of TME and PME. Anastomotic leak occurred in 8.1% and 1.3% of patients with TME and PME, respectively (P < 0.001). Independent factors for a higher anastomotic leakage rate were TME, the male gender, the absence of stoma, and the increased blood loss. The 5-year actuarial local recurrence rate was 9.7%. The advanced stage of the disease and the performance of coloanal anastomosis were independent factors for increased local recurrence. The 5-year cancer-specific survival was 74.5%. The independent factors for poor survival were the advanced stage of the disease and the presence of lymphovascular and perineural invasion. CONCLUSIONS: Anterior resection with mesorectal excision is a safe option and can be performed in the majority of patients with rectal cancer. The local recurrence rate was 9.7% and the cancer-specific survival was 74.5%. When the tumor requires a TME, this procedure is more complex and has a higher leakage rate than in those higher tumors where PME provides adequate mesorectal clearance. By performing TME in patients with mid and distal rectal cancer, the local control and survival of these patients are similar to those of patients with proximal cancers where adequate clearance can be achieved by PME.  (+info)

Y1 - 2015/8/13. N2 - Purpose: Laparoscopic colorectal resection (LC) is associated with known recovery benefits and earlier discharge when compared to open colorectal resection (OC). Whether earlier discharge leads to a paradoxical increase in readmission has not been well characterized. The aim of this study is to compare the risk of readmission after the two procedures in a large, nationally representative sample. Methods: Patients who underwent colorectal resection in 2011 were identified from the American College of Surgeons (ACS) National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database. LC and OC patients were compared for patient factors, complications, and readmission rates. A multivariable analysis controlling for significant factors was performed to evaluate factors associated with ...
Rubber band ligation. Certain internal hemorrhoids look like a cherry on a stalk. They cause the same symptoms as flatter hemorrhoids, but because of their configuration, they may be amenable to rubber band ligation. Again, while you are lying on your side, your colorectal surgeon will slip a tight rubber band around the hemorrhoid in an effort to let it then fall off. You may or may not feel a slight feeling of pressure following the treatment. This pressure should resolve quickly. One hemorrhoidal group is treated per session. Although occasionally prone to failure, these treatments can be permanent. Rubber band ligation should be performed only by a colorectal surgeon trained in the technique. Other specialists have attempted to try ligation with new, supposedly fool proof banding techniques. These techniques have been found to be a problem and banding should best be performed by a specialist ...

Emre Gorgun, Erman Aytac, Brooke Gurland, Meagan M Costedio. Department of Colorectal Surgery, Digestive Disease Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio. INTRODUCTION: Robotic assisted colorectal surgery is an emerging technique. In this study we aimed to compare peri-operative and short-term outcomes of robotic colorectal operations to laparoscopy. METHODS AND PROCEDURES: Patients undergoing robotic colorectal surgery between 11/2010 and 7/2013 were included. Robotic cases were case-matched to laparoscopic counterparts based on diagnosis and operation type. Operative and short-term postoperative outcomes were compared. Quantitative data were reported as mean±standard deviation and categorical data as numbers.. RESULTS: There were 57 patients who underwent robotic colorectal surgery. There were no differences between the groups in terms of age (52 vs.57 years;p=0.29), gender (29 vs.35 males;p=0.26), body mass index (28 vs.28 kg/m2;p=0.94) and history of previous abdominal operations (22 ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Prevention of wound infection in elective colorectal surgery by local application of a gentamicin-containing collagen sponge. AU - Rutten, HJT. AU - Nijhuis, PHA. PY - 1997/4. Y1 - 1997/4. N2 - Preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis is known to significantly reduce the incidence of postoperative wound infection in elective colorectal surgery, and is a recognized part of surgical management. Antibiotics are usually given systemically or orally, or by a combination of the two routes. Local antibiotic delivery to the wound site using an implanted, reabsorbable, gentamicin-containing collagen sponge is a novel concept. We compared postoperative wound infection rates in 221 colorectal surgery patients randomized to receive systemic gentamicin/metronidazole with (Group I, n = 107) or without (Group II, n = 114) the gentamicin-collagen sponge. The two patient groups were identical on the basis of demographics and operations undergone. The postoperative wound infection rate was ...
A colonic polyp is a protrusion in the lining of the bowel caused by an abnormal production of cells. It may be a tiny raised area; it may look like a grape or take the form of many tiny projections clustered together. Polyps are very common (occurring in 15-20% of the population) and most are not cancerous. Polyps should be removed if found as some may eventually (over many years) become a cancer in the colon (large bowel) or rectum (back passage).. Symptoms of colonic polyps. Most people are unaware of having polyps as they usually produce no symptoms and are often an incidental finding. Some polyps can however cause rectal bleeding or an excess production of mucus (slime) with bowel motions. Polyps are usually found as a result of bowel investigations - such as a sigmoidoscopy or barium enema. If they are found colonoscopy is required to view the whole of the large bowel and remove the polyp(s).. Treatments for colonic polyps. The most common method of removal is by:. ...
When some people open their bowels they can get a prolapse from their back passage.. This can simply be a haemorrhoid (pile) which has popped out and either pops back on its own once the deaf action has completed or it has to be pushed back in by the patient. In some people, the haemorrhoid can be permanently on the outside and cannot be pushed back inside. Alternatively, the prolapse can be more serious such as full thickness rectal prolapse when the rectum turns inside out and hangs down quite a way. Sometimes just the lining of the back passage will come out as in mucosal prolapse. If you feel that you have something which comes out when you go to the toilet you should visit your GP who can give you an idea as to what the problem is. If you ask your GP to refer you to The Surgeons Clinic one of our clinicians will listen to your story carefully and then examine you to make the diagnosis. Treatment options can then be discussed according to the problem diagnosed.. Here at The Surgeons ...

Simply put, pruritus ani is a condition of an intense, often unrelenting itching around the anus or even the skin near the anus. It most commonly causes the urge to scratch the itch.. Most people incorrectly assume that the cause may be due to a lack of cleanliness. Or, they feel that if only they could clean the area more thoroughly, the itch would disappear. This mistaken belief sets off a cycle of more cleaning, followed by more itching, followed by more cleaning.. ...
The purpose of the study, conducted by Dr. J. Scott Thomas, associate professor of surgery at the Texas A&M University Health Science Center College of Medicine and Baylor Scott & White Health and co-author of the poster presented at the American Society of Colorectal Surgeons, was to determine if the new irrigating wound protection therapy could aid in lowering the typically high surgical site infection rates of colorectal surgery.. The study evaluated 30-day SSI outcomes for CleanCision, the novel wound retraction device that combines barrier protection and continuous intraoperative wound irrigation, against the standard wound protector used at Baylor Scott & White Health.. A total of 38 subjects were treated with CleanCision between 2015 and 2019 with 102 control-matched subjects identified during the same period. No significant difference existed between control-matched variables with exception of steroid use, which was significantly higher in the novel retractor group. Steroid use has been ...
Background: Anastomotic leaks in colorectal surgery results in a high morbidity and mortality rate. Serum procalcitonin levels is known as a sensitive and specific marker of sepsis and could be use as a marker for early detection of a leak allowing early intervention. It may help a clinician decide to perform a CT scan even earlier especially when the diagnosis of a leak is uncertain. The aim of this study is to determine whether serum procalcitonin is a good predictor of anastomotic leak in colorectal surgery. Methodology: Between July 2014 until October 2015, 70 patients undergoing colorectal surgery were prospectively analyzed in a single-center tertiary teaching hospital. Demographic and surgical data were obtained. Serum procalcitonin was taken before surgery and at day 3 (72 hours) postoperatively. During the postoperative period, the patients were observed in the ward for features of anastomotic leak and if present, it was managed accordingly. The primary outcome was to prospectively ...
All adult (,18 years) patients admitted for elective colorectal resection were evaluated for eligibility.. Patients were randomized using a computer programme and received either 10mg of bisacodyl in non-transparent capsules or identical placebo capsules, containing glucosemonohydricum. The capsules were administered twice daily, starting one day before surgery and ending on postoperative day three.Patients and all involved medical personnel were blinded.. Bowel preparation was not routinely used in open surgery, whereas in patients undergoing laparoscopic resection two litres of sodium-sulfate / macrogol solution (Cololyt®, Spirig Pharma AG, Switzerland) was administered. Standard colorectal surgery was performed in all patients. In open surgery a midline incision was used for laparotomy. In laparoscopic resections a four-port technique with removal of the specimen through a small transverse incision in the lower abdomen was used. All patients received perioperative single shot antibiotics, ...

Introduction:Colorectal cancer is uncommon in the Indian subcontinent, so there is a paucity of outcome data from this region. The aim of our study was to identify risk factors for early postoperative morbidity and mortality following curative colorectal cancer surgery in our set-up. Methods: The data on Patients with pathologically confirmed colorectal cancer who underwent curative surgery at Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan, between January 1999 and December 2008 were recorded. Patients who developed early postoperative morbidity or mortality were compared with those who followed a healthy course after surgery. Results: A total of 250 consecutive Patients underwent colorectal cancer surgery during the study period. Postoperative complications were found in 34.8 percent of the Patients, out of which four deaths occurred. Serum albumin level less than 3.5 g/dl (odds ratio [OR] 3.75, 95 percent confidence interval [CI] 1.37-10.23) and tumours involving the left colon (OR 2.60, 95 percent
A laparoscopic approach is now considered the gold standard in colorectal resection for benign and malignant disease [1]. Laparoscopic surgery is associated with a significant reduction in postoperative pain and opioid consumption, lower morbidity, faster recovery and shorter hospital stay [1]. However, strategies for postoperative pain management after laparoscopic surgery are mainly derived from concepts that have been established for open surgical procedures [2]. As such, patient-controlled epidural and intravenous analgesia are still the most frequently used techniques for postoperative analgesia after laparoscopic colorectal surgery [3]. Epidural analgesia (EA) is known to provide excellent pain control; however, the role of EA in laparoscopic surgery is increasingly being scrutinized [1]. Following laparoscopic colorectal surgery, the use of EA has been shown to result in a prolonged time to mobilization, an increase in hospital costs, length of hospital stay and a higher incidence of ...

The management of patients undergoing colorectal surgery has changed in recent decades. Efforts have been made to show that perioperative physiological stress to the patient can be minimised with standardised care programmes and thus improve short term outcome after colorectal surgery. Mechanical bowel preparation (MBP), for instance, has been questioned as part of standard management. There are studies highlighting the effect of cancer treatment and its side effects in the elderly, showing that geriatric patients benefit from oncological therapy in much the same way as younger patients. The impact of this information on surgical and oncological practice in Sweden today is not known. To assess the effectiveness of colorectal surgery we need both randomised controlled trials and population-based cohort studies. We have performed a trial on colonic surgery with and without preoperative mechanical bowel preparation, as well as a nation-wide register study comparing treatment and outcome of rectal ...
Education Event Dublin 2nd July 2019. The MASIC Foundation was set up in the UK in 2017 to assist mothers suffering from anal sphincter injuries in childbirth. Thankfully, most births are straightforward. When a mother delivers a baby through the birth canal they may suffer from some form of anal incontinence due to serious tears.. The Foundation aims to help mothers who often suffer in silence due to embarrassment and social stigma associated with their symptoms, unaware that there are any other mothers going through what they are experiencing.. In 2019, the MASIC Foundation held an education event in Dublin. The Womens Medical Negligence department at James McSweeney Solicitors were delighted to be invited to this event and we were able to extend the invitation to a number of women whom we represent.. We had the pleasure of listening to colorectal surgeons, physiotherapists, nurses and psychologists providing information to women. Mothers in attendance heard that over 10% of women having a ...

Merck & Co., Inc. announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved INVANZÃ ® (ertapenem), a once-daily injectable antibiotic, for the prophylaxis of surgical site infection (SSI) following elective colorectal surgery in adults. This approval was based upon the results of the landmark PREVENT trial, the largest prospective, randomized double-blind, comparative clinical trial ever conducted in antibiotic prophylaxis for elective colorectal surgery (N=1002). Results from the study were presented today in the New England Journal of Medicine. Given the high incidence of SSI, Merck is very pleased to be able to offer a new alternative with clinically demonstrated efficacy, said Murray A. Abramson, M.D., M.P.H., senior medical director, Merck Research Labs, Infectious Diseases, Merck & Co. Inc. In the PREVENT study, a statistically significant difference favoring INVANZ over cefotetan with respect to the primary endpoint has been observed. A second adequate and ...
Additional laboratory adverse experiences that were reported during therapy in ,0.1% of patients treated with INVANZ in clinical trials include: increases in serum creatinine, serum glucose, BUN, total, direct and indirect serum bilirubin, serum sodium and potassium, PT and PTT; decreases in serum potassium, serum albumin, WBC, platelet count, and segmented neutrophils. In a clinical trial for the treatment of diabetic foot infections in which 289 adult diabetic patients were treated with INVANZ, the laboratory adverse experience profile was generally similar to that seen in previous clinical trials. Prophylaxis of Surgical Site Infection following Elective Colorectal Surgery In a clinical trial in adults for the prophylaxis of surgical site infection following elective colorectal surgery in which 476 patients received a 1 g dose of INVANZ 1 hour prior to surgery and were then followed for safety 14 days post surgery, the overall laboratory adverse experience profile was generally comparable to ...
BACKGROUND: Standard surgical practice for colorectal cancer involves resection of the primary lesion and all draining lymph nodes. Accurate intraoperative assessment of nodal status could allow stratified resectional extent. One-step nucleic acid (OSNA) can provide a rapid method of interrogating nodal tissue, whilst near-infrared (NIR) laparoscopy together with indocyanine green (ICG) can identify relevant nodal tissue intraoperatively. METHODS: ICG was administered around the tumour endoscopically prior to the operation. Fluorescent nodes identified by NIR were marked and submitted for whole-node OSNA analysis. Further fresh lymph nodes dissected from the standard resection specimen were examined and analysed by both conventional histology and OSNA. In addition, the status of the fluorescent nodes was compared to that of non-ICG nodes to assess their predictive value. RESULTS: Sixteen patients were recruited with a total final lymph node count of 287. 78 fresh lymph nodes were identified on fresh
El tratamiento de la dehiscencia de sutura después de cirugía oncológica del cáncer de recto supone un reto quirúrgico.

Of all older patients that opt for elective colorectal surgery, approximately one-third has one or more postoperative complications, particularly those patients with a low cardiorespiratory fitness (ventilatory anaerobic threshold (VAT) | 11 mL/kg/min). A physical exercise training program prior to surgery (prehabilitation) can improve their cardiorespiratory fitness. It remains to be seen whether prehabilitation also reduces postoperative complications, as most of the studies so far were rather underpowered, heterogeneous, and biased toward selection of patients with a lower risk of postoperative complications. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of a three-week prehabilitation program on 30-day postoperative complications in patients with a VAT | 11 mL/kg/min planned for elective colorectal resection for colorectal cancer or dysplasia. In this multicenter prospective randomized controlled trial, patients ≥ 60 years with colorectal cancer or dysplasia grade I, II, or III,
Erection of the penis is mediated by both parasympathetic (arteriolar vasodilatation) and sympathetic (inhibition of vasoconstriction) inflow. Sympathetic activity is responsible for emission and parasympathetic activity for ejaculation. Urinary and sexual dysfunction is commonly seen after a variety of pelvic surgical procedures, including low anterior resection and abdominoperineal resection. Permanent bladder paresis occurs in 7% to 59% of patients after abdominoperineal of the rectum (37). The incidence of impotence is approximately 15% and 45% and that of other ejaculatory dysfunction is 32% and 42% after low anterior resection and abdominoperineal resection, respectively (38).

Colorectal cancer (CRC) care has improved considerably, particularly since the implementation of a quality of care program centered on national evidence-based guidelines. Formal quality assessment is however still needed. The aim of this research was to identify factors associated with practice variation in CRC patient care. CRC patients identified from all cancer centers in South-West France were included. We investigated variations in practices (from diagnosis to surgery), and compliance with recommended guidelines for colon and rectal cancer. We identified factors associated with three colon cancer practice variations potentially linked to better survival: examination of ≥12 lymph nodes (LN), non-use and use of adjuvant chemotherapy for stage II and stage III patients, respectively. We included 1,206 patients, 825 (68%) with colon and 381 (32%) with rectal cancer, from 53 hospitals. Compliance was high for resection, pathology report, LN examination, and chemotherapy use for stage III patients. In
Researchers from the University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center and Office of Public Health Studies have found that patients who have type 2 diabetes in addition to other chronic diseases have a lower survival rate for colorectal cancer.. The study. Type 2 diabetes and colorectal cancer survival: The multiethnic cohort, published in the International Journal of Cancer, investigated the survival rates of colorectal cancer patients with or without type 2 diabetes, and with additional diseases such as heart disease or stroke. The findings showed type 2 diabetes alone does not significantly affect survival for colorectal cancer patients. However, patients with type 2 diabetes as well as other chronic diseases had a lower survival rate.. The researchers looked at 24 years of health data of more than 215,000 adults from California and Hawaiʻi who participated in the multi-ethnic cohort to identify predictors of survival. Among 3,913 new cases of colorectal cancer, the 707 participants with type 2 ...

When the surgery is done, youll be taken to the recovery room (also called the post-anesthesia care unit or PACU). Here, your blood pressure, pulse, and breathing will be carefully monitored. Youll also receive pain medicine to keep you comfortable. When youre ready, youll be moved to a regular hospital room. Youll then be monitored closely to be sure youre healing well. Your hospital stay may last from a few days to a week, or longer. Once home, follow instructions to help ensure a full recovery.. Right after surgery If you have a urinary catheter, it will probably be removed shortly after surgery. Your intravenous (IV) line will remain in place for a few days to give you fluids. And youll continue to receive medicine for pain. Soon after surgery, youll be up and walking around. This helps improve blood flow and prevent blood clots. It also helps your bowels return to normal. Youll be given breathing exercises to keep your lungs clear.. ...

by Physicians Weekly , Jan 9, 2013. Surgical site infections (SSIs) are the most common complication facing colorectal surgery patients, occurring in 15% to 30% of cases. SSIs prolong hospitalization, increase readmissions, require subsequent treatment, affect quality of life, and increase healthcare costs to the tune of $1 billion annually. Research has not shown an association between adherence to well-known infection control process measures and substantial SSI reduction. While the occurrence of SSIs can never be fully eliminated in any feasible scheme, many can be prevented. Addressing SSIs as a Team In a study published in the August 2012 Journal of the American College of Surgeons, my colleagues and I found that physicians and nurses often feel as though they know what needs to be done to improve safety for colorectal surgery patients, but they feel disempowered. Using these perceptions as the basis for our study, we tested the implementation of a surgery-based comprehensive unit-based ...

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute researchers have provided new details about a recently discovered condition in which childhood cancer survivors develop numerous colorectal growths called polyps despite not having a hereditary susceptibility to the condition. The condition, known as therapy-associated polyposis (TAP) was first described by Dana-Farber scientists in 2014 based on a group of five patients. The new study presents a deeper look at the condition, based on data from 34 patients at eight cancer centres around the US. The study, A Multi-Institutional Cohort of Therapy-Associated Polyposis in Childhood and Young Adulthood Cancer Survivors, was published in Cancer Prevention Research.. The development of colorectal polyps - abnormal bump-like growths of tissue - in any individual is a risk factor for colorectal cancer. Polyposis, a condition in which many polyps grow in the intestinal tract, often signals a predisposition to colorectal cancer and other malignancies. People diagnosed with ...
