AIM To perform a systematic review focusing on short-term outcomes after colorectal surgery in patients with previous abdominal open surgery (PAOS). METHODS A broad literature search was performed with the terms "colorectal", "colectomy", "PAOS", "previous surgery" and "PAOS". Studies were included if their topic was laparoscopic colorectal surgery in(More)
BACKGROUND Neoadjuvant CRT may lead to significant tumor regression in patients with rectal cancer. Different CRT regimens with consolidation chemotherapy may lead to increased rates of complete tumor regression. The purpose of this study was to understand tumor metabolic activity following two different neoadjuvant CRT regimens using sequential PET/CT(More)
There is no consensus regarding the best timing for temporary stoma closure after proctectomy for rectal cancer, especially if the patient requires adjuvant chemotherapy. This study aimed to assess whether the timing of stoma closure could influence postoperative morbidity. Patients with rectal cancer undergoing laparoscopic proctectomy with temporary stoma(More)
BACKGROUND Local excision may offer the possibility of organ preservation for the management of select patients after neoadjuvant chemoradiation. The oncological outcomes of this strategy have been largely associated with the risk of nodal metastases. Therefore, in addition to final ypT status, baseline staging has been suggested to potentially influence(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Platelets contain factors, including VEGF and endostatin, that can modulate the healing process. We evaluated the effects of severe thrombocytopenia on periodontal healing in rats and determined the contribution of VEGF and endostatin to the healing process. MATERIAL AND METHODS Rats were distributed into three test groups and two(More)
BACKGROUND There are very few studies and no consensus concerning the choice between two- and three-stage ileal pouch-anal anastomosis [IPAA] in inflammatory bowel diseases [IBD]. This study aimed to compare operative results between both surgical procedures. METHODS Only patients who underwent a laparoscopic IPAA for IBD were included. They were divided(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality around the world, and approximately 5% of them develop in a context of inherited mutations leading to some form of familial colon cancer syndromes. Recognition and characterization of these patients have contributed to elucidate the genetic basis of CRC. Polyposis Syndromes may be(More)
Surgery of small-bowel neuroendocrine (SBNE) tumors is demanding because of the need for associated extensive node dissection and assessment of possible synchronous lesions. For this reason, possible benefit of laparoscopy in SBNE tumors has not been reported to date. From 1996, all patients operated on in Beaujon Hospital for SBNE tumors were(More)
In the setting of Hemorrhoidal Disease treatment, the option of conventional hemorrhoidectomy is highly effective, but it is still associated with postoperative pain and discomfort. For this reason, technical alternatives have been developed in order to reduce complications and to provide better postoperative recovery. To accomplish this aim, non-excisional(More)
Sporadic colorectal cancer (CRC) is traditionally diagnosed after de sixth decade of life, although a small percentage of cases are diagnosed in patients under 40 years of age, and incidence is increasing. There exists a great volume of controversy regarding clinical outcome of young patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC) when compared to elder(More)
