AIM To evaluate the risk factors for lateral lymph node metastasis in patients with advanced low rectal cancer, in order to make the effective selection of patients who could benefit from lateral lymph node dissection, as well as the relationship of lateral lymph node metastasis with local recurrence and survival of patients with advanced low rectal cancer.(More)
AIM To evaluate the oncological outcomes of transanal local excision and the need for immediate conventional reoperation in the treatment of patients with high risk T(1) rectal cancers. METHODS Twenty five high risk T(1) rectal cancers treated by transanal local excision at the Guangdong General Hospital were analyzed retrospectively. Twelve patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the risk factors of lateral lymph node metastasis in advanced lower rectal cancer and its correlation with local recurrence and prognosis. METHODS Data from 96 consecutive patients with advanced lower rectal cancer underwent curative surgery with lateral dissection were retrospectively analyzed. The correlations of lateral lymph node(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) and to evaluate its correlation with mesorectal metastasis in middle and lower rectal cancer. METHODS The resected primary tumors from 56 patients with middle and lower rectal cancer who received total mesorectal excision were studied from Dec. 2001 to Jul. 2003. RESULTS The MMP-2(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect mesorectal metastasis of middle and lower rectal cancer and to evaluate its relationship with clinicopathologic characteristics. METHODS Cancer specimens resected from 56 patients with middle and lower rectal cancer who received total mesorectal excision were examined by routine pathologic observation. The relationship between(More)
M-type phospholipase A2 receptor (PLA2R) is the major target antigen in primary membranous nephropathy (PMN). Previous studies have evaluated the diagnostic value of serum anti-PLA2R antibody. However, the correlation of serum anti-PLA2R antibody and glomerular PLA2R deposition, and their association with clinical characteristics need to be further(More)
AIM To explore the risk factors for local recurrence of middle and lower rectal carcinoma after curative resection. METHODS Specimens of middle and lower rectal carcinoma from 56 patients who received curative resection at the Department of General Surgery of Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital were studied. A large slice technique was used to detect(More)
AIM To clarify the relationship between circumferential resection margin status and local and distant recurrence as well as survival of patients with middle and lower rectal carcinoma. The relationship between circumferential resection margin status and clinicopathologic characteristics of middle and lower rectal carcinoma was also evaluated. METHODS(More)
