  • [Title] Disparities Between Blacks and Whites in Stage at Diagnosis, Incidence, and Anatomic Subsite of Colorectal Cancer.
  • <b><i>Objective</i></b> To determine the magnitude and direction of temporal change in black/white disparity, by anatomic subsites of the colon and rectum.
  • The percentage of cases in the cecum, transverse colon, splenic flexure, descending colon, sigmoid colon, rectum, and recto-sigmoid diagnosed at a late stage was larger among blacks than among whites.
  • The disparity in the percentage of cases diagnosed at a late stage in the colon and rectum, transverse colon, and descending colon increased during the study period (<i>P</i><.05).
  • Incidence for segments of the proximal colon tended to be higher among blacks than among whites.
  • The disparity in the incidence in the transverse colon increased during the study period (<i>P</i>=.021), while the increase in the disparity in the appendix approached statistical significance (<i>P</i>=.051).
  • The disparity in the percentage of cases diagnosed at a late stage and incidence for the transverse colon also increased.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Spontaneous perforation of solitary ulcer of transverse colon.
  • Spontaneous ruptures of the colon and rectum are extremely uncommon clinical entities and always require laparotomy.
  • Computed tomography (CT) of the entire abdomen performed just before the operation demonstrated thickening of the wall of the ascending colon with pericolic fat stranding.
  • Surgery revealed a perforation at the antimesenteric wall of the transverse colon and segmental colectomy of the transverse colon was performed.
  • The histological evaluation demonstrated a perforated solitary ulcer of the transverse colon.
  • There are only few known etiologic factors concerning spontaneous ruptures of the colon and rectum and usually none of these causative factors can easily be recognised.
  • Their clinical appearance is most of the times acute abdomen and, despite the use of all appropriate diagnostic methods, the diagnosis is usually set postoperatively.

  • [Title] [Carcinoma of the transverse colon].
  • [Transliterated title] Les tumeurs du côlon transverse.
  • Carcinoma of the transverse colon accounts for 10% of all colorectal cancer.
  • Diagnosis is often delayed and complicated forms (perforation, fistulization, obstruction) occur in 30-50% of cases.
  • The progression of symptoms is often insidious and tumors may be voluminous by the time of diagnosis.
  • Tumor can also extend or fistulize into adjacent organs.
  • Distal transverse cancers may be small annular lesions which are prone to obstruction.
  • Their central location and advanced stage at presentation results in an extensive differential diagnosis.
  • Surgical series which focus on transverse colon cancer date from the 1970-80's; they show curative resections in only 50% with morbidity/mortality of 20% and a global five year survival of less than 35%; they were considered to have a particularly poor prognosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Laparoscopic colectomy for transverse colon carcinoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic resection of transverse colon carcinoma is technically demanding and was excluded from most of the large trials of laparoscopic colectomy.
  • The aim of this study was to assess the safety, feasibility, and outcome of laparoscopic resection of carcinoma of the transverse colon.
  • METHODS: A retrospective review was performed to identify patients who underwent laparoscopic resection of transverse colon carcinoma.
  • These patients were compared to patients who had laparoscopic resection for right and sigmoid colon carcinoma.
  • In addition, they were compared to a historical series of patients who underwent open resection for transverse colon cancer.
  • RESULTS: A total of 22 patients underwent laparoscopic resection for transverse colon carcinoma.
  • Sixty-eight patients operated for right colon cancer and 64 operated for sigmoid colon cancer served as comparison groups.
  • Intraoperative complications occurred in 4.5% of patients with transverse colon cancer compared to 5.9% (P = 1.0) and 7.8% (P = 1.0) of patients with right and sigmoid colon cancer, respectively.
  • Conversion was required in 1 (5%) patient in the laparoscopic transverse colon group.
  • Operative time was significantly longer in the laparoscopic transverse colectomy group when compared to all other groups (P = 0.001, 0.008, and <0.001 compared to right, sigmoid, and open transverse colectomy, respectively).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results of laparoscopic colon resection for transverse colon carcinoma are comparable to the results of laparoscopic resection of right or sigmoid colon cancer and open resection of transverse colon carcinoma.
  • These results suggest that laparoscopic resection of transverse colon carcinoma is safe and feasible.

  • To examine the relationship between the umbilicus, major abdominal vessels, and transverse colon in males with differing body habitus, we conducted a prospective study including 91 male patients who underwent computerized tomography scan examinations.
  • Compared with normal weight males (8.6±0.7 cm), the distance between the umbilicus and transverse colon was significantly greater in the overweight males (10.7±0.7 cm, P: 0.02 CI -0.3 to -4.2) and obese males (11.5±1.0 cm, P: 0.01; CI-0.4 to -5.0).
  • However, generally the umbilicus is located caudal to the transverse colon.

  • Compared to those with normal weight (0.3 cm +/- 1.1 cm), the distance between umbilicus and transverse colon was greater in overweight (4.5 cm +/- 1.2 cm) and obese women (7.1 cm +/- 0.7 cm).
  • In approximately one third of the normal weight women and over half of the overweight women, the umbilicus was located caudal to the transverse colon.
  • In contrast, the umbilicus in 84.2% of the obese women was located caudal to transverse colon.
  • There was a linear correlation between the distance of umbilicus and transverse colon distance and body mass index (BMI; r = 0.54, p < 0.0001).
  • Regardless of the BMI, there was a wide variability whether the umbilicus was cranial or caudal to the aortic bifurcation or transverse colon.
  • Similar to that in reproductive-aged women, in postmenopausal women the location of the aortic bifurcation and transverse colon varies.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Are transverse colon cancers suitable for laparoscopic resection?
  • BACKGROUND: The large randomized trials reporting on laparoscopic versus open colon surgery for cancer have all excluded patients with transverse colon cancer lesions.
  • This study was undertaken to review our experience with surgery for curable transverse colon cancer.
  • METHODS: A database of 938 laparoscopic colon resections performed between April 1991 and September 2004 was reviewed.
  • On an intent-to-treat basis, outcomes of surgery for transverse colon lesions (TC) were compared with outcomes of segmental colon resections for other lesions (OC).
  • Cancer stage was equivalent between patients with TC (9 Stage I, 7 Stage II, 6 Stage III) and OC (66 Stage I, 126 Stage II, 93 Stage III, p = 0.170) as was tumor size.
  • Patients with TC underwent 9 transverse colectomies, 12 extended right hemicolectomies, and 1 extended left hemicolectomy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic resection of transverse colon cancers is technically feasible and not associated with a significantly higher rate of complications or conversions or with impaired oncologic outcomes compared with patients having segmental laparoscopic resections for other colon cancers.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Surgical and pathological outcomes of laparoscopic surgery for transverse colon cancer.
  • Now the laparoscopic approach is accepted as an alternative to open surgery for colon cancer.
  • However, in prior trials, the transverse colon was excluded.
  • Therefore, it has not been determined whether laparoscopy can be used in the setting of transverse colon cancer.
  • This study evaluated the peri-operative clinical outcomes and oncological quality by pathologic outcomes of laparoscopic surgery for transverse colon cancer.
  • Computed tomography, barium enema, and colonoscopy were performed to localize the tumor preoperatively.
  • Extended right hemicolectomy, transverse colectomy, and extended left hemicolectomy were performed for transverse colon cancer.
  • Surgical outcomes and pathologic outcomes were compared between transverse colon cancer (TCC) and other site colon cancer (OSCC).
  • Patients with TCC were similar to patients with OSCC in age, gender, body mass index, operating time, blood loss, time to pass flatus, start of diet, hospital stay, tumor size, distal resection margin, proximal resection margin, number of lymph nodes, and radial margin.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic surgery for transverse colon cancer and OSCC had similar peri-operative clinical and acceptable pathological outcomes.

  • When we tried to take biopsies of the ileal tumor by push enteroscopy via the anus, we found another tumor in the transverse colon.
  • On exploration, tumors were identified in the ileum and the transverse colon.
  • Thus, we resected the ileum and transverse colon with regional lymph node dissection.
  • Histologic sections from both the ileum and colon revealed moderately differentiated adenocarcinomas with no lymph node metastasis.

  • [Title] [Treatment of cicatricial stricture subsequent to esophageal chemical burns with transverse colon replacing esophagus in children].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the validity of transplanting transverse colon to replace esophagus in treating cicatricial stricture resulting from severe esophageal chemical burns in children.
  • The transverse colon with the ascending branch of the left colic artery was brought through a retrosternal tunnel to replace strictured esophagus.
  • Thirty-two patients underwent colon-esophageal anastomosis and 14 patients underwent colon-pharyngeal anastomosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Esophageal reconstruction with transverse colon together with the ascending branch of the left colic artery through a retrosternal tunnel is a valuable method for treating cicatricial stricture of the esophagus secondary to severe chemical burns of the esophagus in children.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A comparative study on the short-term clinicopathologic outcomes of laparoscopic surgery versus conventional open surgery for transverse colon cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: The long-term oncologic stability of laparoscopic surgery for colon cancer was established, and laparoscopic surgery was accepted as an alternative to conventional open surgery for colon cancer.
  • However, transverse colon cancer was excluded from the majority of the previous prospective studies.
  • As a result, debate on laparoscopic surgery for transverse colon cancer continues.
  • This study aimed to compare the clinicopathologic outcome of laparoscopic surgery with that of conventional open surgery for transverse colon cancer.
  • METHODS: From August 2004 to December 2007, 106 cases of transverse colon cancer were managed by resection at our institution, and 89 of these cases were included in this study.
  • Age, sex, body mass index (BMI), operation time, blood loss, time to first flatus, time to start of diet, hospital stay, complications, tumor size, distal resection margin, proximal resection margin, and number of nodes harvested were compared between the two groups.
  • No intergroup differences in tumor size, proximal resection margin, or number of lymph nodes were observed.
  • CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic and conventional open surgeries were found to have similar clinical outcomes in transverse colon cancer, and the oncologic quality of laparoscopic surgery was found to be acceptable compared with conventional open surgery.

  • 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.

  • We herein present a case of a 75-year-old female with mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the transverse colon with the stage IE (Ann Arbor classification).
  • Colonoscopy revealed the tumor's appearance as a IIa plus II c-like early colon cancer as defined according to the macroscopic classification of the Japanese Research Society for Cancer of Colon, Rectum and Anus, measuring less than 2 cm in diameter.
  • Histologically, the tumor was diagnosed as MALT lymphoma because of the presence of lymphoepithelial lesions consisting of diffuse proliferation of atypical lymphocytes and glandular destruction.
  • However, the tumor size gradually increased over the next 4 mo and the patient eventually underwent surgical resection.
  • The tumor measured 45 mm multiply 30 mm in diameter and histological examination showed that the lymphoma cells had infiltrated the muscle layer of the colon without nodal involvement.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Hybrid hand-assisted colectomy for transverse colon cancer: a useful technique for non-expert laparoscopic surgeons.
  • BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic assisted colectomy (LAC) is commonly performed, but LAC for transverse colon cancer is a complex procedure, even in the hands of experts.
  • METHODS: From 2000 to 2007, 22 patients with transverse colon cancer underwent hybrid-HALC at our facility.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that hybrid-HALC for transverse colon cancer is a feasible, convenient, and less-invasive technique, and that it is a useful alternative, especially for non-expert laparoscopic surgeons.

  • [Title] Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) in the transverse colon of an adolescent: a case report.
  • Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) is defined as a very rare mesenchymal tumor of histologically and immuno-histochemically distinctive perivascular epithelioid cells.
  • PEComa in the colon is very rare, with only a few reported cases so far.
  • Because of its rarity, the clinical features and biological behavior of PEComa in the colon have yet to be established.
  • A 16-year-old female patient with PEComa in the transverse colon was referred to our hospital for rectal bleeding.
  • Colonoscopy, barium enema, and abdominal computed tomography revealed a 2-cm, smooth-surfaced, round tumor with focal ulceration in the proximal transverse colon.
  • She underwent a segmental resection for a perforated transverse colon.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells showed strong diffuse positivity for HMB-45 while they were negative for c-kit, smooth muscle actin, cytokeratin, S-100, vimentin, desmin, chromogranin, synaptophysin, EMA, and CD-34.
  • The diagnosis of PEComa was based on histological and immunohistochemical staining.

  • Volvulus of transverse colon is a rare cause of large bowel obstruction.
  • To our knowledge only 75 cases have been reported in the world literature and additionally only three cases of transverse colon volvulus with Chilaiditis syndrome have been reported to date.
  • Because of its rarity here we report a case of transverse colon volvulus which was indeed associated with Chilaiditis syndrome.
  • This is probably the fourth case of Chilaiditis syndrome caused by transverse colon volvulus.

  • We report a rare case of transverse colon volvulus in a fifteen year old boy with a review of the literature.
  • Diagnosis can be challenging and the effective management remains controversial.
  • The epidemiology, aetiology, diagnosis and management of transverse colon volvulus are discussed.
  • It is important to highlight this case and those in the literature, as many surgeons may never have seen a single case of transverse colon volvulus.
  • It may therefore not be considered in the differential diagnosis of recurrent intermittent abdominal pain or acute intestinal obstruction.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Transverse colon herniation through the foramen of Winslow presenting with unusual CT findings.
  • In its origin, a pivotal role is played by some anatomic variations, or anomalies such as the increased mobility of the right transverse colon, and maybe the exceedingly large bore of the foramen itself.
  • Diagnosis usually is established during surgery while treating a bowel obstruction.
  • Only in an exceedingly small group of patients is diagnosis achieved preoperatively on the basis of radiological findings.
  • We describe a preoperatively diagnosed case of transverse colon herniation through the foramen of Winslow, showing a portal vein narrowing and periportal lymphedema at computed tomography (CT).
  • To the best of our knowledge, only a few cases of preoperative CT diagnosis of Winslow foramen hernia have been described in the past.

  • [Title] Substance P and vasoactive intestinal peptide are reduced in right transverse colon in pediatric slow-transit constipation.
  • The density of nerve fibers in circular muscle containing these transmitters was examined in colon from children with STC and compared to other pediatric and adult samples.
  • METHODS: Fluorescence immunohistochemistry using antibodies to NO synthase (NOS), VIP and SP was performed on colonic biopsies (transverse and sigmoid colon) from 33 adults with colorectal cancer, 11 children with normal colonic transit and anorectal retention (NAR) and 51 with chronic constipation and slow motility in the proximal colon (STC).
  • KEY RESULTS: In colon circular muscle, the percentage area of nerve fibers containing NOS > VIP > SP (6 : 2 : 1).
  • In pediatric samples, there were no regional differences in NOS and VIP, while SP nerve fiber density was higher in sigmoid than proximal colon.
  • STC children had lower SP and VIP nerve fiber density in the proximal colon than NAR children.
  • CONCLUSIONS & INFERENCES: There are age-related reductions in nerve fiber density in human colon circular muscle.
  • NOS and VIP do not show regional variations, while SP nerve fiber density is higher in distal colon.
  • 1/3 of pediatric STC patients have low SP or VIP nerve fiber density in proximal colon.

  • Microbial breakdown of both oligosaccharides and short-chain fatty acid production was colon compartment specific, with ascending and transverse colon being the predominant site of inulin and AXOS degradation, respectively.
  • Lactate levels (+5.5 mM) increased in the ascending colon during AXOS supplementation, while propionate levels (+5.1 mM) increased in the transverse colon.
  • The concomitant decrease in lactate in the transverse colon suggests that propionate was partially formed over the acrylate pathway.
  • Furthermore, AXOS supplementation strongly decreased butyrate in the ascending colon, this in parallel with a decrease in Roseburia spp. and Bacteroides/Prevotella/Porphyromonas (-1.4 and -2.0 log CFU) levels.
  • Our results demonstrate that AXOS has a higher potency than inulin to shift part of the sugar fermentation toward the distal colon parts.

  • Thus, the transverse colon was supplied by the distal part of the P-C A.
  • Considering both the P-C A caliber and topography, attention should be paid during pancreatic resections and in the interposition of the transverse colon for esophageal replacement in order to avoid serious bleeding and necrosis.

  • [Title] The infracolic approach to pancreatoduodenectomy for large pancreatic head tumours invading the colon.
  • BACKGROUND: Tumours arising from the head of the pancreas can invade both the proximal transverse colon and its mesocolon.
  • Pancreatoduodenectomy is performed in conjunction with en-bloc resection of the transverse colon.
  • In the event of tumour invading the SMV, this is also resected en-bloc with the pancreatic head and transverse colon.
  • In two patients, the procedure had to be abandoned because of unexpected SMA encasement by tumour.
  • In the absence of metastatic disease, large pancreatic head tumours involving the colon can be resected en-bloc with the pancreatic head, as long as the SMA is not encased by the tumour.

  • [Title] Lymph node metastasis patterns in right-sided colon cancers: is segmental resection of these tumors oncologically safe?
  • PURPOSE: The type of surgery and the extent of lymphadenectomy depend on the tumor location and should be based on the extent of lymphatic spread and the oncologic outcome.
  • The aim was to analyze patterns of lymph node metastasis in patients with right-sided colon cancer.
  • METHODS: Between 1996 and 2007, a total of 419 patients underwent curative resection for right-sided colon cancer.
  • Lymph nodes were grouped immediately after surgery on the basis of the location of the tumor.
  • RESULTS: There were 75, 208, 78, and 58 tumors in the cecum, ascending colon, at the hepatic flexure, and in the transverse colon, respectively.
  • Of the 58 patients with transverse colon tumors, 43, 11, 3, and 1 underwent right hemicolectomies, transverse colectomies, left hemicolectomies, and a subtotal colectomy, respectively.
  • Patients with cecal and ascending colon cancers most frequently had metastases in the ileocolic lymph nodes.
  • In transverse colon cancer, the middle colic node was the most commonly involved lymph node.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Metastasis to lymph nodes along the right colic artery occurred in approximately 10% of the patients with transverse cancer, indicating the need for great care in deciding the extent of segmental resection for these patients.

  • The localization and morphometric features of efferent parasympathetic neurons of the vagus dorsal motor nucleus and of the spinal sacral parasympathetic nucleus innervating the area of ileocaecal sphincter, ascending and transverse colon, were investigated.
  • In urethane anaesthetized cats, the solution of horseradish peroxidase was injected under the serosa of the indicated areas of colon.
  • It was shown that all the areas of the colon studied received parasympathetic innervation from the neurons of the ventrolateral part of the vagus dorsal motor nucleus, which were uniform according to their morphometric characteristics.
  • The number of neurons in this group, sending their axons to the ileocaecal area, was greater than the number of neurons, innervating ascending colon.
  • Second group of neurons, that was represented by smaller cells, was located in the same part of the nucleus and innervated transverse colon.
  • Transverse colon had an additional parasympathetic supply from the neurons of the spinal sacral parasympathetic nucleus.

  • [Title] Malignant schwannoma of the pancreas involving transversal colon treated with en-bloc resection.
  • Pancreatic schwannoma is a very uncommon tumor of the pancreas, with only 27 cases reported.
  • Most pancreatic schwannomas are benign, with only four malignant tumors reported.
  • We describe a case of giant malignant schwannoma of the pancreatic body and tail, which involved the transverse colon.
  • The tumor was treated successfully with en bloc distal splenopancreatectomy and colon resection.
  • This is believed to be the first reported radical operation for malignant schwannoma of the pancreatic body, with infiltration of the transverse colon, with excellent long-term results.
  • The authors conclude that pancreatic schwannomas should be considered in the differential diagnosis of cystic neoplasms of the pancreas, although the diagnosis can only be confirmed by microscopic examination.
  • In the case of the benign tumors, local excision is adequate, but in the case of malignant schwannoma, oncological standards must be fulfilled.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed CT scans of 34 patients known to have gastric malignant neoplasm and gastrocolic ligament involvement.
  • We also found that gastric carcinoma and gastrointestinal stromal tumor invaded the transverse colon through the gastrocolic ligament in six patients (17.6%, six of 34).
  • CONCLUSION: CT scan is useful for detecting gastrocolic ligament involvement in gastric malignant neoplasm.
  • Gastric malignant neoplasm also may involve the transverse colon through the gastrocolic ligament.

  • Preoperative tumour location determined by CT scan and colonoscopy was compared with the intra-operative and histopathological findings.
  • RESULTS: Out of 101 patients, 73 (73%) were for adenoma or cancer, with a final diagnosis of adenocarcinoma in 59 (58%).
  • In the transverse colon, colonoscopy alone was only 37.5% accurate, increasing to 62.5% when information from the CT scan was added.
  • CONCLUSION: Preoperative localization of right-sided colon cancers using colonoscopy and CT scanning is unreliable in at least 29% of cases.
  • Inaccurate localization of transverse colon tumours risks inadequate lymphadenectomy with an adverse cancer outcome.
