Management of concurrent colorectal cancer and vascular disease in the endovascular era.
Summary of "Management of concurrent colorectal cancer and vascular disease in the endovascular era."
Concurrent colorectal cancer (CRC) and vascular disease, such as abdominal aortic aneurysm, represents a challenging clinical situation. Both lesions may lead to the demise of the patient and therefore should be treated. Endovascular techniques may enhance decision-making and even permit single-stage treatment. PATIENTS AND
Retrospective review of patients in a university department with extensive endovascular experience. Between 2004 and 2010, seven patients with synchronous vascular disease and colorectal cancer were identified.
The mean age was 73 years, and all patients were men. Five patients had concurrent CRC and aneurysmal disease. Two had synchronous critical carotid artery stenosis and CRC. All vascular lesions were treated with endovascular techniques. All CRC were resected with open techniques. In four patients, endovascular repair followed by staged CRC resection was performed. In three patients, single-stage procedures were performed. There was one perioperative death, for a mortality of 14.3% in our series. There were no graft infections.
Priority of treating concurrent vascular disease and CRC remains a dilemma. Combined treatment with a single-stage procedure is feasible. Risk of graft infection may be lower than expected.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
Colorectal Neoplasms, Hereditary Nonpolyposis
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
Tumor Suppressor Protein P53
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
Purpose: We report a single-center experience with the endovascular management of mycotic aortic aneurysms. Case reports: Four cases of mycotic aortic aneurysms are described; all treated with endovas...
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has become an accepted and often preferred approach to the management of patients with thoracic aortic disease. Advanced endovascular skills and specific cr...
The management of patients with unruptured aneurysms is controversial. Patients with unruptured aneurysms may suffer intracranial hemorrhage, but the incidence of this event is still debat...
The purpose of this study is to investigate how systematic physical training after endovascular treatment influence the durability of the endovascular treatment and how it effects physical...
The purpose of this study is to confirm the long-term safety and effectiveness of the FLAIR Endovascular Stent Graft for treatment of stenoses at the venous anastomosis of ePTFE or other s...
