2014-08-27 03:13:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Hypothesis: the bladder and sexual functions can be better preserved in patients with robotic assisted rectal surgery

This is a randomized trial comparing the bladder and sexual function of patients who undergo laparoscopic and robotic assisted rectal resection for rectal cancer.

Description

This is a randomized trial comparing the bladder and sexual function of patients who undergo laparoscopic and robotic assisted rectal resection for rectal cancer

The primary objective of this study is to compare the bladder and sexual functions of patients who undergo laparoscopic and robotic assisted resection for rectal cancer through a randomized controlled trial.

The secondary outcome measures include

1. The operative outcome in terms of the complication rate, hospital stay and reoperation of the two groups;

2. The quality of life of the patients and the cost of the two groups

3. The quality of the resected specimens

4. The local recurrence rates at two years after the surgery

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A compound tubular gland, located around the eyes and nasal passages in marine animals and birds, the physiology of which figures in water-electrolyte balance. The Pekin duck serves as a common research animal in salt gland studies. A rectal gland or rectal salt gland in the dogfish shark is attached at the junction of the intestine and cloaca and aids the kidneys in removing excess salts from the blood. (Storer, Usinger, Stebbins & Nybakken: General Zoology, 6th ed, p658)

Protrusion of the rectal mucous membrane through the anus. There are various degrees: incomplete with no displacement of the anal sphincter muscle; complete with displacement of the anal sphincter muscle; complete with no displacement of the anal sphincter muscle but with herniation of the bowel; and internal complete with rectosigmoid or upper rectum intussusception into the lower rectum.

Tumors or cancer of the RECTUM.

Uptake of substances from the RECTUM.

Procedure involving the instillation of an anesthetic into the rectum.
