BACKGROUND Surgical treatment of low rectal cancer is controversial, and one of the reasons is the lack of definition and standardization of surgery in low rectal cancer. [...] Key MethodDESIGN Patients with low rectal cancer <6 cm from anal verge were defined in 4 groups: type I (supra-anal tumors: >1 cm from anal ring) had coloanal anastomosis, type II (juxta-anal tumors: <1 cm from anal ring) had partial intersphincteric resection, type III (intra-anal tumors: internal anal sphincter invasion) had total…Expand
Sphincter preservation in patients with low rectal cancer: striking the right oncological balance
TLDR
In the treatment of low rectal cancer Abdominoperineal Resection is associated with higher rates of postoperative complications and longer hospital stay compared to the Low Anterior Resection, with similar oncological outcomes. Expand
Clinical feasibility of sphincter-preserving resection with transanal rectal dissection for low-lying rectal cancer in Japanese patients: a single-center cohort study
TLDR
TARD, performed under direct vision for both complete TME and preservation of the IAS as much as possible in sphincter-preserving resections for low-lying rectal cancers in Japanese patients, does not negatively impact oncologic outcomes and could have the benefit of minimizing postoperative anorectal dysfunction by preserving the internal anal sphiffer. Expand
Sphincter saving and abdomino-perineal resections following neoadjuvant chemoradiation in locally advanced low rectal cancer.
TLDR
In low rectal cancer, the sphincter preservation appears to have nearly the same oncologic outcome compared to APR, however, patients with sphiffer preservation have certainly demonstrated an indisputable better functional outcome, in terms of stoma avoidance and adequate continence. Expand
Complications Following Surgery for Low Rectal Cancer – Modified Intersphincteric Resections vs Non-Sphincter Saving Technique
Abstract Introduction: In patients with low rectal cancer, a proper surgical technique is aimed to confer a better quality of life following surgery and a longer time of disease-free survival. Aim:Expand
Surgical strategy for low rectal cancers.
TLDR
The two goals of surgery for lower rectal cancer surgery are to obtain clear "curative" margins and to limit post-surgical functional disorders to help preserve the anal sphincter. Expand
Perineal Transanal Approach: A New Standard for Laparoscopic Sphincter-Saving Resection in Low Rectal Cancer, a Randomized Trial
TLDR
Perineal rectal dissection reduces the risk of positive circumferential resection margin, as compared with the conventional abdominal dissection in low rectal cancer, which suggests the perineal Rectal Dissection as a new standard in laparoscopic sphincter-saving resection for low Rectal cancer. Expand
Factors affecting sphincter-preserving resection treatment for patients with low rectal cancer.
TLDR
Univariate analysis results revealed that the sphincter-preserving factor was significantly associated with age, gender, ethnicity, body mass index (BMI), total infiltrated circumference, distance of the tumor from the anal verge (DTAV), depth of invasion and tumor grade, and multivariate analysis indicated that the SpR factor was strongly associated with DTAV and thedepth of invasion.

Transanal total mesorectal excision: pathological results of 186 patients with mid and low rectal cancer
TLDR
The present study showed good rates regarding total mesorectal excision, negative circumferential, and distal resection margins, and can be regarded as a safe method to treat patients with rectal cancer, from an oncological point of view. Expand
Five-year oncologic outcomes and prognostic factors for locally advanced low rectal cancer after low anterior resection
TLDR
For patients with low rectal caner underwent low anterior resection with total mesorectal excision, the long-term oncologic outcomes were satisfactory for patients with stage yp0/I, but not for Patients with pathologic stage III. Expand

Sphincter-Saving Resection for All Rectal Carcinomas: The End of the 2-cm Distal Rule
TLDR
Tumor distance from the anal verge is no longer a limit for sphincter-saving resection and the technique of intersphincteric resection permits us to achieve conservative surgery in patients with a tumor close to or in the anal canal without compromising local control and survival. Expand
Sphincter Preservation in Low Rectal Cancer is Facilitated by Preoperative Chemoradiation and Intersphincteric Dissection
TLDR
In low rectal cancer, sphincter preservation is facilitated by a significant response to preoperative chemoradiation and intersphincteric resection, without compromise of margins or outcome. Expand
Intersphincteric resection with excision of internal anal sphincter for conservative treatment of very low rectal cancer
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that intersphincteric resection can be an alternative to abdominoperineal resection for selected rectal tumors situated at the anorectal junction, without compromising chance of cure. Expand
Sphincter preservation in rectal cancer with preoperative radiation therapy and coloanal anastomosis: long term follow-up.
TLDR
The data suggest that preoperative radiation therapy allows sphincter preservation in 77% of selected patients who would otherwise require an abdominoperineal resection, and 85% have good to excellent spHincter function. Expand
Risk Factors for Fecal Incontinence After Intersphincteric Resection for Rectal Cancer
TLDR
Patient characteristics do not appear to influence functional outcome at long-term follow-up after intersphincteric resection, and the risk of fecal incontinence depends mainly on tumor level and height of the anastomosis. Expand
Laparoscopic Versus Open Surgery for Rectal Cancer: Long-Term Oncologic Results
TLDR
The efficacy of laparoscopy in a team specialized in rectal excision for cancer (open and laparoscopic surgery) is suggested with similar long-term local control and cancer-free survival than open surgery. Expand
Total mesorectal excision is not necessary for cancers of the upper rectum.
TLDR
The outcome of treatment for UR is the same as for S and differs favorably from that for LR, which means UR should be treated by the same technique as S. Expand
Rectal cancer: the Basingstoke experience of total mesorectal excision, 1978-1997.
TLDR
Rectal cancer can be cured by surgical therapy alone in 2 of 3 patients undergoing surgical excision in all stages and in 4 of 5 patients having curative resections, suggesting strategies should incorporate total mesorectal excision as the surgical procedure of choice. Expand
Preoperative Radiochemotherapy and Sphincter-Saving Resection for T3 Carcinomas of the Lower Third of the Rectum
TLDR
It is suggested that preoperative radiochemotherapy allowed sphincter-saving resection to be performed with good local control and good functional results in patients with T3 low rectal cancers that would have required abdominoperineal resection in most instances. Expand
Low rectal cancer: a call for a change of approach in abdominoperineal resection.
TLDR
The poor prognosis of the patients with an APR is ascribed to the resection plane of the operation leading to a high frequency of margin involvement by tumor and perforation with this current surgical technique. Expand
