University of Adelaide, Royal Adelaide Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital.. Introduction: Esophageal anastomoses in major upper gastrointestinal surgery can be technically demanding, especially in patients with large proximal tumours, and in those undergoing a minimally invasive approach. The OrvilTM circular stapler is unique in its ability to be inserted via the mouth, and potentially offers an easier method of ensuring adequate margins. Little is reported in the literature regarding its outcomes and complication rates.. Methods: All patients undergoing esophageal or gastric resection between September 2008 and April 2013 were identified from a prospectively maintained surgical database. Primary outcomes were anastomotic leak and postoperative stricture. Pitfalls were also identified and recorded.. Results: We identified 67 patients in which the OrvilTM circular ...

PURPOSE The survival advantage of preoperative radiotherapy in patients with rectal cancer is still a matter of debate, because its incremental benefit in the total mesorectal excision setting is unclear. This study was designed to evaluate early and long-term results of preoperative radiotherapy plus intraoperative radiotherapy in a homogeneous population of T3 middle and lower rectal cancer patients submitted to total mesorectal excision. METHODS A series of 113 patients with middle and lower T3 rectal cancer consecutively submitted to total mesorectal excision at a single surgical unit from 1991 to 1997 were divided into two groups according to type of neoadjuvant treatment: preoperative radiotherapy (38 Gy) plus intraoperative radiotherapy (10 Gy; n = 69), and no preoperative treatment (total mesorectal excision; n = 44). Standard statistical analyses were used to evaluate early (downstaging, intraoperative factors, hospital morbidity, and mortality rates) and long-term results (recurrence and
OBJECTIVE: To analyze total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer by the laparoscopic approach during a prospective nonrandomized trial. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Improved local control and survival rates in the treatment of rectal cancer have been reported after TME. METHODS: The authors conducted a prospective consecutive series of 100 laparoscopic TMEs for low and mid-rectal tumors. All patients had a sphincter-saving procedure. Case selection, surgical technique, and clinical and oncologic results were reviewed. RESULTS: The distal limit of rectal neoplasm was on average 6.1 (range 3-12) cm from the anal verge. The mean operative time was 250 (range 110-540) minutes. The conversion rate was 12%. Excluding the patient who stayed 104 days after a severe fistula and reoperation, the mean postoperative stay was 12.05 (range 5-53) days. The 30-day mortality was 2% and the overall postoperative morbidity was 36%, including 17 anastomotic leaks. Of 87 malignant cases, 70 (80.4%) had a minimum ...

National Cancer Center, Goyang, Republic of Korea. Background: Single-port laparoscopic total mesorectal excision is challenging and technically demanding. Exposure and mobilization of the most distal part of rectum are especially difficult. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of transanal approach to perform total mesorectal excision using laparoscopy in human cadavers.. Methods: A total of 12 cadavers underwent laparoscopic low anterior resection using transanal port combined with single-port laparoscopy through stoma site. The technique comprises the following: (1) full-thickness circumferential incision about 1cm above the dentate line; (2) rectal lumen was closed with a purse-string suture; (3) a multiple instrument access single-port was placed in the anus; (4) the rectum was mobilized cephalad with ...
In the past three decades, several advancements including improvement in surgical techniques and the development of new therapeutic modalities have improved treatment outcomes of rectal cancers. Total mesorectal excision (TME) surgery, which was described by Heald and Ryall [1] in 1982, remarkably improves the clinical outcomes of patients with rectal cancer; thus it has served as the standard surgical procedure for such patients. A 5-year local recurrence rate of 5% in patients who undergone TME surgery alone was reported by MacFarlane et al. [2]. In addition, preoperative concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) considerably helps in improving the local recurrence rate in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC). A German study reported a considerable decrease in local recurrence in patients receiving preoperative CCRT [3, 4]. The similar results were also reported by other studies [5-7] and preoperative CCRT has been the recommended treatment for patients with LARC.. Laparoscopic rectal ...

This surgery is performed for the treatment of symptomatic gall stones, caused by the presence of gall stones in the gall bladder. Usually a storage for the excess bile production, the bile can sometimes become thick and clump together, creating stones. These stones can in turn cause inflammation or irritation in the biliary system and cause abdominal discomfort. This is often located on the right side of the abdomen and normally intermittent in nature. A simple ultrasound scan, undertaking in radiology at the Princess Grace, can confirm the presence of gall stones.. Although these stones can be treated with medication, they will most likely recur, and the best treatment is to have your gall bladder removed. This is done through a keyhole method, (laparoscopic) leaving only a few small scars behind. Living without your gall bladder is not usually a problem, as the body is able to adapt, although this may take a little time.. ...

Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2008, vol.60, n.5, pp.379-386. ISSN 0718-4026. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262008000500003.. Background: Twenty five years ago, biliary surgery accounted for 30 to 50% of all operations performed ¡n a general surgical service. We have no information ofthechangesin thefrequency in surgical interventions ¡n the last years. Aim: To determine, using hospital discharge data, which are the most common surgical interventions in Chile. Material and Methods: Databases with hospital discharge data from all the hospitals in Chile during 2004 and 2005, available at the Ministry of Health website, were consulted.

Adjuvant therapy for T3N0 rectal cancer was controversial with respect to both radiation and the use of a combined regimen of chemotherapy. We evaluated both clinical features and biomarkers and sought to determine risk factors for those patients retrospectively. A total of 122 patients with T3N0 rectal cancer were analyzed in this study from January 2000 to December 2005. Clinicopathologic and biomarkers were used to predict local recurrence (LR), disease-free survival (DFS), and overall survival (OS). The median follow-up interval was 45.4 months. Five-year LR, DFS, and OS rates were 10.4%, 68.3%, and 88.7%. Having a lower tumor location and showing low P21 and high CD44v6 expression were identified as risk factors for LR: patients with two or three of these risk factors had a higher 5-year LR rate (19.3%) than did patients with none or one of these risk factors (6.8%) (p = 0.05). A poorer DFS was related to low P21 nor high CD44v6 expression but not to tumor location: the 5-year DFS rates were 79.3%

Accurate prediction of pathologic complete response can help in the selection of patients for optimized treatment, sphincter-preserving surgery, less extensive resection, planning of extra radiation boosts, or even delayed surgery with a wait-and-see policy. Therefore it is valuable to develop an accurate, data-driven model to predict pathologic complete response for rectal cancer patients in order to individualize treatment. CTPET-imaging is known to have predictive value for response in rectal cancer from univariate analyses. In this study CTPET imaging is combined with clinical prognostic factors to develop models and corresponding nomograms to predict response sufficiently accurate to use in trials and in the clinic ...

AU - Bejarano, P.. AU - Berho, M.. PY - 2014/1/1. Y1 - 2014/1/1. N2 - Aim: This study aimed to compare the clinical outcome between local excision (LE) and total mesorectal excision (TME) for early rectal cancer. Method: After Institutional Review Board approval, charts of patients with T1 or T2 N0M0 rectal adenocarcinoma treated by curative LE or TME without preoperative radiotherapy from 2004 to 2012 were reviewed. Categorical and continuous variables were compared using chi-square analysis and the ANOVA test. Kaplan-Meier analysis compared survival rates. Results: The study included 153 patients: 79 underwent TME and 74 LE. Postoperative infection was more common after TME (P = 0.009). There was tumour involvement of the margins in 13.5% after LE compared with 0% after TME (P = 0.001). Of the patients ...
