BACKGROUND The finding that some rectal cancers respond to neoadjuvant chemoradiation is broadening new surgical options for the treatment of some of these tumors that, until now, required a total mesorectal excision. Nevertheless, a fine match between clinical and pathological response is required when planning conservative surgical approaches. OBJECTIVE This study aims to prospectively validate the use of endoscopic ultrasound as a predictor of clinical and pathological tumor response in… CONTINUE READING
