  • [Title] Perforated mixed carcinoid-adenocarcinoma in transverse colon and at gastroenterostomy site: case report.
  • Goblet cell carcinoid of the large intestine is a rare neoplasm, usually located in ascending colon and rectum.
  • A 60-year-old male patient underwent surgery after the diagnosis of acute abdomen.
  • Exploratory laparotomy revealed perforation with a diameter of 1 cm at the site of the previously performed gastroenterostomy and dilatation of the right colic flexure, secondary to a solid obstructive mass located in the mid-portion of transverse colon.
  • Histopathological investigation of the biopsies, taken from the gastroenterostomy site and the tumor, revealed mixed carcinoid-adenocarcinoma with carcinoid component, predominantly composed of goblet cells.
  • Our aim with this paper is to point out that more cases should be reported for more effective diagnosis, histopathological study, clinical investigation, treatment and prognosis of this specific neoplasm.

  • [Title] Left paraduodenal hernia incidentally diagnosed during operation for transverse colon cancer.
  • We report the case of a patient with paraduodenal hernia diagnosed incidentally during an operation for transverse colon cancer.
  • Barium enema and colonoscopic examination revealed an irregular surfaced mass, about 5.0 cm in size, located near the flexure of the spleen of the transverse colon.
  • A biopsy of the mass was performed, and a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma was diagnosed.
  • In April 2009, following the diagnosis of transverse colon cancer, laparotomy was performed, which revealed that a few loops of the jejunum were herniated through the orifice into the space posterior to the transverse mesocolon.
  • These findings were consistent with a left paraduodenal hernia associated with transverse colon cancer.

5. Meguid RA, Slidell MB, Wolfgang CL, Chang DC, Ahuja N: Is there a difference in survival between right- versus left-sided colon cancers? Ann Surg Oncol; 2008 Sep;15(9):2388-94

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Is there a difference in survival between right- versus left-sided colon cancers?
  • BACKGROUND: The incidence of right-sided colon cancers has been increasing in recent years.
  • In this study, we have compared the survival of right-and left-sided colon cancers in a longitudinal population-based database.
  • METHODS: A retrospective survival analysis was performed using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program (SEER) database between 1988 and 2003 on subjects who underwent surgical resection for the a primary diagnosis of pathologically confirmed invasive colon adenocarcinoma.
  • Cox proportional hazard regression analysis was used to assess long-term survival outcomes comparing right-sided (cecum to transverse colon, excluding appendix) versus left-sided (splenic flexure to sigmoid, excluding rectum) colon cancers.
  • RESULTS: A total of 77,978 subjects were identified with adenocarcinoma of the colon.
  • By Cox proportional hazard regression analysis, controlling for statistically significant confounders, including age, sex, race, marital status, tumor stage, tumor size, histologic grade, number of lymph nodes examined, and year of diagnosis, right-sided colon cancers were associated with a 5% increased mortality risk compared with left-sided colon cancers (hazard ratio, 1.04; 95% confidence interval, 1.02-1.07).
  • CONCLUSION: On the basis of analysis of information from the SEER database, we found that right-sided colon cancers have a worse prognosis than left-sided colon cancers.
  • The reason for this remains unclear but may be due to biological and/or environmental factors and may have particular bearing, given the rising incidence of right-sided colon cancers.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Case of a sigmoid colon cancer with metachronous metastases to the mesorectum and the abdominal wall.
  • BACKGROUND: Sigmoid colon cancer metachronous metastases commonly occur in the liver and lungs with sporadic reports also to the spleen, stomach, thyroid gland, abdominal wall and upper urinary tract.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 72-year-old female underwent sigmoidectomy for stage I (T2N0 M0) sigmoid colon cancer in May 2008.
  • A loop transverse colostomy was immediately perfomed and the operation was terminated.
  • CONCLUSION: Metachronous metastasis of the mesorectum from sigmoid colon cancer is extremely rare.
  • Although patterns of lymphatic spread from rectal cancer to sigmoid colon have recently been demonstrated, there is no evidence of metachronous mesorectum invasion from sigmoid colon cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Demographics, pathologic patterns and long-term survival in operable colon cancers: local experience in Pakistan.
  • BACKGROUND: Colon cancer is a common malignancy with its incidence reportedly rising in Asian countries, including Pakistan.
  • There are no comprehensive data available from Pakistan which focus on associations of various factors with long-term survival of colon cancer.
  • METHODOLOGY: In this retrospective study adult patients with colon cancer diagnosed through 2000-2003 were included.
  • Mean age of diagnosis was 54 years.
  • Of the total, 49.5% of the patients had right sided (mortality rate 51.6%), 10.8% had transverse colon, (mortality rate 37.5%), 7.5% had descending colon (mortality rate 66.7%) and 32.2% had sigmoid colon (mortality rate 40.9%) cancers.
  • Stage I disease on diagnosis was found in 16%, stage II in 42.7 (mortality 40 %) and stage III in 41.3% (mortality 70 %).
  • Most patients had pure adenocarcinoma while a mucinous type differentiation was seen in 19.7%, 3% had signet ring morphology, 1.5% adeno-squamous carcinoma and similar number with neuroendocrine differentiation.
  • CONCLUSION: Colon cancer in Pakistan commonly presents at an advanced stage, there is a male preponderance, and relatively mean younger age at presentation for males is seen.
  • Advanced stage and lymph node involvement along with poorly differentiated pathology, signet ring or mucinous morphology, location in descending colon, positive surgical margins and removal of less than twelve lymph nodes are factors associated with poor long term survival.
  • There is a need to reinforce information about colon cancer and larger studies from the region are needed to confirm the factors analyzed here.

  • [Title] Clinical presentation and diagnosis of intestinal adenocarcinoma in Crohn's disease: analysis of clinical predictors and of the life-time risk.
  • BACKGROUND: Late diagnosis of cancer in CD often occurs, and the prognosis is poor.
  • The primary aim of this study was to assess the relationship between clinical presentation and diagnosis of intestinal adenocarcinoma in CD; the secondary aim was to evaluate the timing of cancer occurrence in CD patients.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Medical records of 12 consecutive patients with intestinal adenocarcinoma in CD and of 79 consecutive CD patients undergoing bowel surgery were reviewed.
  • Timing of intestinal adenocarcinoma occurrence in patients with CD was analyzed including all the 347 consecutive patients that had undergone surgery for CD in our institute from January 1984 to June 2008.
  • Carcinomas were localized in the terminal ileum in four cases, right colon in three, transverse colon in one, sigmoid colon in one, rectum in two, and an anorectal fistula in one.
  • At multivariate analysis only age (OR 1.057 (95% CI 0.999-1.107), p = 0.05) and obstruction (OR 6.530 (95% CI 1.533-27.806), p = 0.01) significantly predicted cancer diagnosis.
  • DISCUSSION: In CD, rectal bleeding, the most common alarm symptom for intestinal cancer, is not useful for an early diagnosis.

  • To improve survival rate after colon or rectum resection for cancer patients should be strictly followed up in order to identify possible local disease relapse or metachronous neoplasia.
  • From October 2002 to January 2006, 864 patients had undergone colonoscopy and 68 were treated surgically for colorectal adenocarcinoma.
  • Nineteen of the patients underwent a left colectomy, 28 an anterior resection, 18 a right colectomy and 3 a resection of the transverse colon.
  • In addition, in 11 cases, there were 3 right colon adenomatous polyps, 2 transverse colon polyps (one villous and the other tubular), 5 descending colon polyps (three tubular and two villous) and 1 tubulo-villous polyp of the rectum.
  • An examination of the data resulting from our own 68 cases shows that, in spite of the fact that no local disease relapse or metachronous neoplasia was observed, the identification of 11 polyps would suggest that the use of colonoscopy in such patients might be the gold standard for early diagnosis of recurrences and new polyps.

  • [Title] Recurring enteric peritonitis associated with non-perforating colon carcinoma.
  • To the best of our knowledge, peritonitis has not previously been reported associated with carcinomatous colon polyp in the absence of bowel wall perforation.
  • We describe the case of a 31-year-old female who experienced recurring episodes of enteric peritonitis associated with a clinically occult adenocarcinoma of the colon, without having any other known risk factors for peritonitis.
  • She proceeded to transverse colectomy; the resected colon showed no evidence of bowel wall perforation.
  • This case demonstrates that a non-perforating carcinomatous polyp of the colon may predispose to enteric peritonitis in the setting of peritoneal dialysis, and it emphasizes the importance of making an aggressive search for underlying pathology, in patients who present with recurring enteric peritonitis or unusual presentations of enteric peritonitis.

  • [Title] Two-port hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery for the 2-stage treatment of a complete bowel obstruction by left colon cancer: a case report.
  • Since a bowel obstruction by left colon cancer was suspected due to a marked dilation of the transverse colon, she was referred to our hospital.
  • On admission, an enema disclosed a complete obstruction at the splenic flexure of the colon.
  • An emergency operation was performed, and a temporary loop colostomy was fashioned on the left side of the transverse colon within the range of resection for 2-stage radical surgery.
  • The histological diagnosis was Type 2 circumferential well-differentiated adenocarcinoma with local peritoneal dissemination.
  • Our experience suggests that 2-stage surgery combined with 2P-HALS is applicable even to a large obstructing left colon cancer.

  • (1) a substantial fraction of patients undergoing laparoscopic colectomy for apparently benign colorectal neoplasia will have adenocarcinoma on final pathology; and (2) in our practice, we perform an adequate laparoscopic oncological resection for apparently benign polyps as evidenced by margin status and nodal retrieval.
  • Colectomy type: right/transverse (n = 49, 78%); left/anterior resection (n = 10, 16%); subtotal (n = 4, 6%).
  • Invasive adenocarcinoma was found on histological analysis of the colectomy specimen in 14 out of 63 cases (22%), standard error of the proportion 0.052.
  • Neither dysplasia on endoscopic biopsy nor lesion diameter was predictive of adenocarcinoma.
  • Eight out of 23 (35%) patients with dysplasia on endoscopic biopsy had adenocarcinoma on final pathology versus 6/40 (15%) with no dysplasia (p = 0.114, Fisher's exact test).
  • CONCLUSION: A substantial fraction of endoscopically unresectable colorectal neoplasms with benign histology on initial biopsy will harbor invasive adenocarcinoma, some of advanced stage.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: From January 1973 through December 2005, only 159 children/adolescents (ages 4-20 years) were reported with a diagnosis of colorectal cancer.
  • The most common sites of involvement were the rectum (27%) and the transverse colon (26%).
  • Adenocarcinoma was the most common histotype in both adults and pediatric patients; however, children/adolescents had more unfavorable histotypes (ie, mucinous adenocarcinoma [22%] and signet ring cell carcinoma [18%]) when compared with adults (10% and 1%, respectively; P < .001).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Data from 21 Chinese articles published from 1980 to 1999, were used to analyze the time trend of colorectal cancer according to the patients' age at diagnosis, sex, the site of the tumor, stage, and the pathology.
  • However, the proportion of proximal colon cancer (including transverse and ascending colon) increased significantly accompanied by a decline in the percentage of rectal cancer.
  • Similarity in the percentage of distal colon cancer between two decades was revealed.
  • The proportion of adenocarcinoma increased, but the mucinous adenocarcinoma decreased during two decades.
  • Especially, a proximal shift due to the increasing proportion of ascending and transverse colon cancer has occurred in China.
