Colentina Surgical Clinic Experience in Treatment of Rectal Cancer
Colorectal cancer represents the fourth neoplasic localization after the bronchopulmonary, gastric and genital (breast, cervical) topographies. It is the neoplasia with the greatest percentage of hepatic metastases. In Colentina Surgical Clinic were operated 372 cases with this pathology in the last 10 years (2002-2011). Most surgical interventions were represented by abdominoperineal resection and anterior resection. Stapled anastomosis was done in 58 (39%) of cases. Rectal touch and colonoscopy represented the main diagnostic methods. Most of the patients were male, with a mean age of 61 years (range between 36-85 years old). Complementary pre or postoperative oncologic treatment increased the life expectance in these patients.
