Article: Primary resection with antegrade colonic irrigation and peritoneal lavage versus subtotal colectomy in the management of obstructed left colon cancer.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Between 1980 and 1996 122 patients with acutely obstructed resectable carcinomas of the colon and rectum were treated in our hospital. Ninety-four has undergone one stage operation of immediate resection and primary anastomosis without proximal colostomy. Intraoperative colonic irrigation was performed in 34 patients, subtotal/total colectomy in 30 patients, right hemicolectomy in 30 patients. There were 2.3 and 1 operative deaths, respectively. The average hospital stay for the survivors was 19.8 days in the primary resection and anastomosis group, and 41.0 days in staged operation group. Concerning the possibility of multiple lesions the authors recommend subtotal/total colectomy except for tumours localized in the sigma where they apply total colectomy only when the proximal part of the colon is necrotized or filled with solid stool.Acta chirurgica Hungarica 02/1997; 36(1-4):59-60.
Article: [Sphincter-saving procedure of abdomino-peritoneal amputation? Surgical management of cancer of the lower two third of the rectum].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The authors report their results in surgical treatments of carcinoma localized in the low two thirds of the rectum done between 1980 and 1988. The number of patients was 150. Resectability: 119/150 = 79.33 per cent. Lethality: 4/119 = 3.3 per cent. Seventy three of the patients (61 per cent) had sphincter saving procedures and 46 of them (38.7 per cent) had abdominoperineal excision. Out of the 64 low anterior resection 2 patients (L: 2/64 = 3.1 per cent) and out of the 46 abdominoperineal excision also 2 patients (L: 2/46 = 4.5 per cent) were lost. In the sphincter saving group the distal clearance margin was decreased to below 3 cms at 29 patients without having local recurrence. Conclusion: in many cases of the carcinoma localized in the middle third of the rectum (at 82 per cent of our own patients) the sphincter can be saved without having more local recurrences. Decreasing the distal clearance margin to 2.5 cms does not increase the possibility of local recurrence if we do it cranially the same way as at Miles operation and remove the mesorectum caudally and laterally.Orvosi Hetilap 03/1991; 132(8):403-8.
