During surgery for rectal cancer, there is considerable controversy regarding the optimal level of ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA). Several studies have demonstrated the b...
14,000 new cases of rectal cancer are diagnosed each year, frail and elderly patients represent a rising proportion of these patients. Whilst the gold standard is often to remove the tumou...
Total mesorectal excision (TME) is the gold standard procedure for treating rectal cancer. However, in patients with obesity, prostate hypertrophy, low located tumor or/and pelvic stenosis...
Laparoscopy colon surgery is accepted worldwide in the recent years. But there is still argument on the effect of laparoscopy rectal surgery. Laparoscopy has advantages on showing the infe...
The purpose of this study is to develop a technique that allows physicians to identify the first lymph nodes draining from a rectal tumor (the sentinel lymph nodes). Currently, there is no...
Low Hartmann's resection (LHR) and intersphincteric abdominoperineal resection (iAPR) are both feasible options in the treatment of rectal cancer when restoration of bowel continuity is not desired. T...
Resection of a long rectal stump after previous colectomy or Hartmann procedure often requires a combined transperitoneal and transperineal approach because of limited access through a perineal incisi...
We have previously reported our technique of single-docking totally robotic dissection for rectal cancer surgery using the Da Vinci(®) Si Surgical System in 2009. However, we have since optimised our...
The role of extralevator abdominoperineal excision (ELAPE) for distal rectal cancer remains controversial, and the procedure is not widely accepted or practiced.
Sexual dysfunction and impaired quality of life is a potential side effect to rectal cancer treatment.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Procedure involving the instillation of an anesthetic into the rectum.
Tumors or cancer of the RECTUM.
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
Aneurysm caused by a tear in the TUNICA INTIMA of a blood vessel leading to interstitial HEMORRHAGE, and splitting (dissecting) of the vessel wall, often involving the AORTA. Dissection between the intima and media causes luminal occlusion. Dissection at the media, or between the media and the outer adventitia causes aneurismal dilation.
