Clinical and pathologic predictors of locoregional recurrence, distant metastasis, and overall survival in patients treated with chemoradiation and mesorectal excision for rectal cancer.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To identify predictive factors for locoregional recurrence (LR), distant metastasis (DM), and overall survival (OS) in patients treated with chemoradiation and surgery for rectal cancer. METHODS Between 1989 and 2001, 470 patients with rectal cancer were treated with preoperative (89%) or postoperative (11%) chemoradiation and mesorectal… (More)
