Operative Versus Nonoperative Treatment for Stage 0 Distal Rectal Cancer Following Chemoradiation Therapy: Long-term Results
TLDR
Stage 0 rectal cancer disease is associated with excellent long-term results irrespective of treatment strategy and Surgical resection may not lead to improved outcome in this situation and may be associated with high rates of temporary or definitive stoma construction and unnecessary morbidity and mortality rates. Expand
Patterns of failure and survival for nonoperative treatment of stage c0 distal rectal cancer following neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy
TLDR
Even though surgery remains the standard treatment for rectal cancer, nonoperative treatment after complete clinical response following neoadjuvant CRT may be safe and associated with good survival rates in a highly selected group of patients. Expand
The Role of Carcinoembriogenic Antigen in Predicting Response and Survival to Neoadjuvant Chemoradiotherapy for Distal Rectal Cancer
TLDR
A postchemoradiotherapy CEA level <5 ng/ml is a favorable prognostic factor for rectal cancer and is associated with increased rates of earlier disease staging and complete tumor regression. Expand
Long-term results of preoperative chemoradiation for distal rectal cancer correlation between final stage and survival
TLDR
Cancer-related overall and disease-free survival may be correlated to final pathologic staging following neoadjuvant CRT for distal rectal cancer, and stage 0 is significantly associated with improved outcome. Expand
Diet and colorectal cancer: current evidence for etiology and prevention.
TLDR
Current recommendations for decreasing the risk of CRC include dietary measures such as increased plant food intake; the consumption of whole grains, vegetables and fruits; and reduced red meat intake. Expand
Optimal timing for assessment of tumor response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation in patients with rectal cancer: do all patients benefit from waiting longer than 6 weeks?
TLDR
Patients who developed an increase in SUVmax after 6 weeks were less likely to develop significant tumor downstaging and early-late SUVmax variation at 6-week PET/CT may help identify patients and allow tailored selection of CRT-surgery intervals for individual patients. Expand
Enterohormonal Changes After Digestive Adaptation: Five-Year Results of a Surgical Proposal to Treat Obesity and Associated Diseases
TLDR
Based on physiological and supported by evolutionary data, this procedure creates a proportionally reduced gastrointestinal (GI) tract that amplifies postprandial neuroendocrine responses and leaves basic GI functions unharmed. Expand

TLDR
Familial adenomatous polyposis patients should be managed by experienced surgeons working in specialized centers to achieve the best immediate and long-term results. Expand
Evolution of Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery in Brazil: Results of 4744 Patients From the National Registry
TLDR
The number of patients operated upon increased expressively during the last years and operative indications for benign and malignant diseases were similar, and diverticular disease of the colon comprised 40% of the benign ones; conversion and mortality rates decreased over time; and surgeon's experience did not influence the complication rates, but was associated with a lower conversion. Expand
PROGNOSTIC FACTORS OF SURGICALLY-TREATED PATIENTS WITH CANCER OF THE RIGHT COLON: A TEN YEARS' EXPERIENCE OF A SINGLE UNIVERSITARY INSTITUTION
TLDR
Right-sided colon cancer presented commonly at advanced stage and lymph node involvement were factors associated with poor long term survival, and overall survival was affected by T stage, N stage, M stage, and final stage. Expand
