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.
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
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Through a double blinded study, patients with low rectal cancer will be randomized into two equal groups to compare between the 5 year disease free survival as a primary outcome measure.
This study compared robot-assisted total mesorectal excision (RTME) and laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (LTME) with regard to urinary function, sexual function and sphincter- preser...
Low anterior resection syndrome (LARS) covers disordered bowel function after rectal resection, leading to deterioration in patients' quality of life. The aim of this study was to evaluate anorectal f...
The last two decades has seen a significant evolution in the surgical management of distal rectal cancer, with restoration of intestinal continuity now one of the primary objectives. The re-appraisal ...
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...
Transection of the rectum at the anorectal junction is required for proper resection in ulcerative colitis and restorative proctocolectomy. Achieving stapled transection at the pelvic floor is often c...
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 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.

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.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
