: In recent years, our understanding of rectal cancer has improved, including how locally advanced disease responds to chemotherapy and radiation. This has led to new innovations and advances in the treatment of rectal cancer, which includes organ-preserving strategies for responsive disease, and minimally invasive approaces for the performance of total mesorectal excision/protectomyh for persistently advanced disease. This article discusses new strategies for rectal cancer therapy, including Watch and Wait, local excision, minimally invasive proctectomy, and transanal total mesorectal excision particularly in the setting of preoperative multimodality treatment.

Abstract The aim of this study was to establish the oncological and functional results of organ preservation with a watch-and-wait approach (W&W) and selective transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) in patients with a clinical complete or near-complete response (cCR) after neoadjuvant chemoradiation for rectal cancer. Between 2004 and 2014, organ preservation was offered if response assessment with digital rectal examination, endoscopy, and MRI showed (near) cCR. Watch-and-wait was offered for ...

PurposeA pathologic complete response (pCR; ypT0N0) of a rectal tumor after neoadjuvant radiochemotherapy (RCT) is associated with an excellent prognosis. Several retrospective studies have investigated the effect of increasing the delay after RCT. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of increasing the interval between the end of RCT and surgery on the pCR rate.MethodsGRECCAR6 was a phase III, multicenter, randomized, open-label, parallel-group controlled trial. Patients with cT3/T4 ...

BACKGROUND: Pathological complete response after chemoradiotherapy for rectal cancer occurs in 10% to 30% of patients. The best method to identify such patients remains unclear. Clinical assessment of residual mucosal abnormality is considered the most accurate method. In our institution, magnetic resonance tumor regression grade is performed as routine to assess response. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the sensitivity of magnetic tumor regression grade against residual muco...

AbstractStandardization of transanal total mesorectal excision requires the delineation of the principal procedural components before implementation in practice. This technique is a bottom-up approach to a proctectomy with the goal of a complete mesorectal excision for optimal outcomes of oncologic treatment. A detailed stepwise description of the approach with technical pearls is provided to optimize one’s understanding of this technique and contribute to reducing the inherent risk of beginning...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies using PET/CT imaging have failed to accurately identify complete responders to neoadjuvant chemoradiation among patients with rectal cancer. The use of metabolic parameters alone or imprecise delineation of baseline and residual tumor volumes may have contributed for these disappointing findings. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of complete response identification in rectal cancer after neoadjuvant chemoradiation by sequential PET/CT...

AbstractCurrent available evidence regarding transanal total mesorectal excision (TATME) was analyzed including perioperative and immediate oncologic outcomes. A literature search of PubMed, Embase and Cochrane was performed. Thirty-two studies were identified, reporting on 721 patients who underwent TATME. TATME represents a feasible and reproducible technique. Nevertheless, the results of the present review are limited by the design of the included studies, which are mostly case reports and ca...

Purpose PET/CT has been considered limited for the evaluation of mucinous colorectal tumors due to low 18F-FDG uptake. The aim of our study was to compare PET/CT variables in mucinous (MC) and nonmucinous (NMC) rectal adenocarcinomas.

Over the past 3 years, colorectal surgeons have begun to adapt the technique of transanal total mesorectal excision. As international experience has been quickly forged, an improved recognition of the pitfalls and the practical details of this disruptive technique have been realized. The purpose of this technical note was to express the various nuances of transanal total mesorectal excision as learned during the course of its clinical application and international teaching, so as to rapidly comm...

Abstract Introduction The standard treatment for locally advanced rectal cancer is total mesorectal excision. However, organ preservation has been proposed for tumours with good response to neoadjuvant treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the oncologic results of this strategy. Methods This is a retrospective cohort study (2005–2014) including a consecutive series of patients with rectal adenocarcinoma with complete or almost complete clinical response after preoperative chemo-radiot...

Background. To explore the clinical value of enhanced computed tomography (enhanced CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and cancer antigen 199 (CA199) in the diagnosis of rectal cancer (RC). Methods. A total of 156 patients with RC confirmed by postoperative pathology admitted to the Affiliated Yantai Yuhuangding Hospital of Qingdao University from March 2018 to November 2020 were included in the malignant group, and 52 patients with chronic proctitis in the be...
PURPOSE The aims of the current study are to describe the quality of life among patients with rectal cancer and to determine the clinical and demographic correlation that influences the quality of life of rectal cancer patients.

Rectal cancer is a common malignancy that continues to have a highly variable outcome. Local pelvic recurrence following surgery is usually leading to incurable disease. Surgical resection with stage-appropriate combined-modality therapy is the mainstay in the treatment of rectal cancer. A difficulty has been reported in distinguishing the benign post-management findings from tumor recurrence. By adding the metabolic changes to the post-operative morphologic changes, combined positron emission t...
Objective This study was designed to explore the biological significance of myosin light chain 6B (MYL6B) in rectal adenocarcinoma. Methods Profiles on the Oncomine dataset, GEPIA website, and UALCAN-TCGA database were searched to assess the MYL6B expression level in rectal adenocarcinoma tissues and normal tissues. After MYL6B knockdown using siRNA strategy, cell counting kit-8 (CCK-8) and transwell assays were conducted to measure cell proliferation, migration and invasion, respectively. Flow ...

Abstract Currently, analyzing intact glycopeptides remains a challengeable task. Considerable progress has been achieved in the knowledge of immunoglobulin G (IgG) glycans in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC), whereas data on IgG Fc N-glycopeptides are scarce in the literature. To fill this gap in knowledge, we developed a rapid and effective method to obtain and analyze IgG Fc N-glycopeptides in the plasma from 46 CRC patients and 67 healthy individuals using chitosan@poly (glycidyl methacr...

Background: Rectal cancer requires a multidisciplinary and multimodality treatment approach. Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) provide a framework for delivering consistent, evidence-based health care. We compared provincial/territorial CPGs across Canada to identify areas of variability and evaluate their quality. Methods: We retrieved CPGs from Canadian organizations responsible for cancer care oversight and evaluated their quality and developmental methodology using the AGREE-II instrument....
