Background Single incision laparoscopic colectomy (SILC) and single incision robotic colectomy (SIRC) are both advanced minimally invasive operative techniques. However, studies comparing these two surgical methods have not been published. The purpose of this study is to compare and evaluate the short-term outcomes of SIRC with those of SILC. Meth...

Purpose: To assess the feasibility and short-term outcomes of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) followed by transanal total mesorectal excision assisted by single-port laparoscopic surgery (TaTME-SPLS) for low-lying rectal adenocarcinoma. Methods and materials: A total of 23 patients with clinical stage II-III low-lying (from anal verge 0-8 c...

Background and objectives: To investigate whether multidisciplinary team (MDT) intervention is associated with improved survival for patients with colorectal adenocarcinoma with liver or lung metastasis (CRA-LLM). Methods: We enrolled 161 consecutive patients with histologically confirmed CRA-LLM at Taipei Medical University-Wan Fang Hospital be...

Background and Objectives: To evaluate the predictive factor for and patterns of distant metastasis in patients with rectal adenocarcinoma receiving total mesorectal excision (TME). Methods: We enrolled 217 consecutive patients who had histologically confirmed rectal adenocarcinoma and underwent surgery at Taipei Medical University- Wanfang Hospita...

Background and Objectives: To investigate critical prognostic factors for local recurrence in patients with rectal adenocarcinoma. Methods: We enrolled 221 consecutive patients who had histologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the rectum and underwent surgery in our hospital between January 2000 and December 2014. Total mesorectal excision was per...

In Taiwan, colorectal cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis is considered a terminal condition. We examined the clinical outcomes of cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) treatment for colorectal cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis in Taiwan. We enrolled patients with colorectal cancer and peritoneal metastas...

To investigate the outcomes of the selective neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) in lower 3rd rectal cancer patients in different groups (with or without neoadjuvant CCRT), especially in survival rate, local recurrence rate, and sphincter preservation rate. From January 1999 to December 2012, 69 consecutive patients who had histological...

Combined megaloblastic anemia with thalassemia is easily masked because of the loss of macrocytosis. We performed a retrospective study to compare the major parameters in 4 groups of subjects in order to show the characteristics of patients with megaloblastic anemia and thalassemia. Group A comprised 9 patients with megaloblastic anemia and tha-las...

S ince the first laparoscopic colonic resection per-formed by Dr. Jacobs in 1991, 1 several randomized trials have confirmed the feasibility and the safety of laparoscopic colorectal surgery. 2-4 However, some con-cerns about this procedure still need to be addressed. One of the major concerns is regarding intra-oper-ative conversion from laparosco...
