The aim was to determine the presentation, management and outcomes of MUTYH‐associated polyposis (MAP).
A prospectively maintained database was used to identify patients with MAP. Demographic data and data on germline mutation, surgical management, histopathology of tumours and endoscopic surveillance were collected.
In all, 134 patients with MAP were identified. The majority...
Thorough assessment of obstructed defaecation syndrome (ODS) is imperative for the selection of treatment options. The present study aimed to examine the utility of the Mansoura Numeroalphabetic Constipation Score (MNCS) in distinguishing patients with ODS from healthy control subjects and in predicting the outcome of treatment of ODS.
Patients with ODS associated with anterior rectocele...
Restorative proctocolectomy has been widely adopted as the procedure of choice for restoring gastrointestinal continuity following proctocolectomy. It is often associated with improved quality of life and high patient satisfaction; however, the development of a pouch anal fistula can cause significant morbidity. Pouch fistulas are notoriously difficult to treat and there is great heterogeneity...
At presentation, 15–20% of patients with rectal cancer already have synchronous liver metastases. The aim of this study was to determine the surgical and survival outcomes in patients with advanced rectal cancer who underwent combined pelvic exenteration and liver (oligometastatic) resection.
Data from 20 international institutions that performed simultaneous pelvic exenteration and...
Routine colonoscopy to exclude colorectal cancer (CRC) after CT‐verified acute diverticulitis is controversial. This study aimed to compare the incidence of CRC in patients with acute diverticulitis with that in the general population.
Patients with an emergency admission for diverticular disease to any Norwegian hospital between 1 January 2008 and 31 December 2010 were included through...
The 5‐factor modified frailty index (mFI‐5) is a new, NSQIP‐based, predictive tool for mortality and postoperative complications. The mFI‐5’s predictive ability has been validated within the large‐scale NSQIP database but applicability in institutional databases has not been investigated. We sought to assess the association between the mFI‐5 and morbidity/mortality at the institutional...
Bowel dysfunction following anterior resection (AR) is termed low anterior resection syndrome. It is unclear whether such dysfunction occurs following other bowel/pelvic operations as well. This study aimed to characterize and compare bowel dysfunction following AR, right hemicolectomy (RH) and radical cystectomy (RC).
A prospective study of consecutive patients undergoing AR, RH and...
