An inferior prognosis of patients with ulcerative colitis-associated colorectal cancer (UCC) compared with those with sporadic colorectal cancer (SCC) has been reported, but remains controversial. This prompted us to investigate if aneuploidy can be(More)
Resection of isolated hepatic or pulmonary metastases from colorectal cancer is widely accepted and associated with a 5-year survival rate of 25–40%. The value of aggressive surgical management in patients with both hepatic and pulmonary metastases still remains a controversial area. A retrospective review of 1,497 patients with colorectal carcinoma (CRC)(More)
