PURPOSE: It is possible that implantation of viable malignant cells is one of the mechanisms of anastomotic recurrence in rectosigmoid cancer. The viability of shed intraluminal cells was previously established and malignant cells were retrieved on circular staplers in unwashed rectal stumps. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a defined and uniform washout protocol in eradication of intraluminal malignant cells during anterior resection. METHODS: In 14 consecutive… CONTINUE READING
