AIM To evaluate the clinical parameters and identify a better method of predicting pathological complete response (pCR). METHODS We enrolled 249 patients from a database of 544 consecutive rectal cancer patients who underwent surgical resection after preoperative chemoradiation therapy (PCRT). A retrospective review of morphological characteristics was then performed to collect data regarding rectal examination findings. A scoring model to predict pCR was then created. To validate the ability… CONTINUE READING
