KOL-Index: 62 The majority of colorectal and anal malignancies are adenocarcinomas and squamous cell cancers, respectively. Despite the predominance of these neoplasms in these locations, rare histiotypes of the colon, rectum, and anus do occur. These histotypes include but are not limited to lymphoma, melanoma, diffuse cavernous hemangioma, and sarcomas, such as leiomyosarcoma or Kaposi's sarcoma. These ...

KOL-Index: 42 There are a variety of benign disorders of the colon and rectum that are uncommon but may be troublesome to diagnose and manage because of their obscurity and at times chronicity. The etiologies of these less-common disorders include bacterial, viral, parasitic, collagen vascular, ischemic, radiation related, and those involving immunocompromised states. It is often common that when the ...

KOL-Index: 42 Although cancer in the elderly is extremely common, few health professionals in oncology are familiar with caring for series of oncogeriatric patients. Surgery is at present the first choice, but is frequently delivered suboptimally: under-treatment is justified by concerns about unsustainable toxicity, whilst over-treatment is explained by the lack of knowledge in optimising preoperative ...

KOL-Index: 37 The follow-up of patients with rectal cancer after potentially curative resection has significant financial and clinical implications for patients and society. The ideal regimen for monitoring patients is unknown. We evaluated the self-reported practice patterns of a large, diverse group of experts. There is little information available describing the actual practice of clinicians who ...

KOL-Index: 37 Most patients with rectal cancer are treated with curative-intent surgery; adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation are often used as well. A recent survey of members of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) revealed considerable variation in surveillance intensity after primary treatment. We evaluated whether geographic factors may be responsible for the observed variation. ...

The demographics, presentation, and treatment remain debatable in the absence of a comprehensive review of the literature. DATA SOURCES: This article reports a case of a 40-year-old woman who presented with ...

As medical advances in the areas of local therapy, radiation therapy, and surgical technique, such as, laparoscopy are made more elderly patients are offered various types of treatment for rectal cancer. As the number of ...

KOL-Index: 34 Cancer is a prevalent disease in our aging population; however, few oncologists are familiar with caring for oncogeriatric patients. Surgery is presently the treatment of choice for most solid tumors, but it is frequently delivered in a suboptimal way in this patient subsetting. Undertreatment is often justified with the concern of an unsustainable toxicity, while overtreatment can be ...
