To evaluate the prognostic significance of neoadjuvant rectal (NAR) score after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) for locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC), and to develop a nomogram predicting dis...
The standard treatment for mid or low locally advanced rectal cancer is neoadjuvant therapy followed by surgical resection. Laparoscopic surgery has recently been applied for the treatment of rectal c...
A significant number of patients treated for locally recurrent rectal cancer have local or systemic failure, especially after incomplete surgical resection. Neoadjuvant treatment regimens in patients ...
Treatment of locally advanced rectal (LARC) cancer involves chemoradiation, surgery, and chemotherapy. The concept of total neoadjuvant therapy (TNT), in which chemoradiation and chemotherapy are admi...
The analysis of a National Cancer Database performed by Sun et al.  examines survival difference in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer with different neoadjuvant therapy modalities. The ...
This study suggested an effective application of pattern recognition, which figured the possible biological function of potential bio-markers of rectal cancer found in our study based on t...
Preoperative 5FU based chemoradiotherapy is still the standard of treatment for locally advanced rectal cancer. About 15-20% of patients would achieve pathologic complete response (pCR) af...
Neoadjuvant chemoradiation (CRT), is considered the standard treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer with a positive impact on locoregional control and survival.However, patients with ...
This study aims to investigate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of triplet regimen of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer
Background: Neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) and total mesorectum excision (TME) has become the standard therapy for the treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) to reduce the...
A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.
Tumors or cancer of the RECTUM.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.
Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
