  • [Title] Prostanoids, ornithine decarboxylase, and polyamines in primary chemoprevention of familial adenomatous polyposis.
  • BACKGROUND & AIMS: Familial adenomatous polyposis because of germline mutation of the adenomatous polyposis coli gene is characterized by development of colorectal adenomas and, ultimately, colorectal cancer.
  • The usefulness of colorectal mucosal compounds to predict the effect on adenoma development of primary chemoprevention with the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug sulindac was evaluated.
  • METHODS: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 41 subjects genotypically affected with familial adenomatous polyposis but phenotypically unaffected was conducted.
  • The levels of 5 prostanoids, ornithine decarboxylase, and polyamines were measured serially in normal-appearing rectal mucosa.
  • RESULTS: There were no statistically significant differences between treatment groups in baseline levels of prostanoids, ornithine decarboxylase, or polyamines.
  • Among the subset of patients taking sulindac, 3 of 5 prostaglandin levels were statistically significantly lower in patients who were polyp free than in those who developed polyps.
  • By contrast, there were no statistically significant differences in ornithine decarboxylase or polyamines between treatment groups or in those on sulindac who were polyp free compared with those who developed polyps.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Colorectal mucosal prostaglandin levels, but not ornithine decarboxylase or polyamines, may be valuable biomarkers to assess appropriate drug dosage and medication compliance in patients undergoing primary chemoprevention therapy with sulindac.

  • [Title] Benefits of laparoscopic-assisted colectomy for colon polyps: a case-matched series.
  • OBJECTIVE: To clarify the true benefits of laparoscopic-assisted colectomy by comparing clinical outcomes from a series of laparoscopic right colectomies with matched open colectomies, all performed for the singular indication of polyp not amenable to colonoscopic removal.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective case-matched study was performed of consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic-assisted right hemicolectomy for polyps between January 1992 and July 1997.
  • Each case was matched to a control undergoing the equivalent open procedure for the same indication during the same time period.
  • RESULTS: Thirty-eight patients undergoing laparoscopic-assisted right hemicolectomy for polyps were identified, and matches were found.
  • Operative times were longer for laparoscopic-associated colectomy (median, 208 minutes vs 150 minutes, P < .001).
  • Laparoscopic-assisted colectomy resulted in shorter postoperative ileus (time to flatus, 3.0 vs 4.0 days, P < .001; time to bowel movement, 3.5 vs 5.0 days, P < .001) and in earlier tolerance of regular diet (3.5 vs 6.0 days, P < .001).
  • Laparoscopic-assisted resection has become our preferred approach for polyps not amenable to colonoscopic polypectomy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A pilot study of topical intrarectal application of amifostine for prevention of late radiation rectal injury.
  • PURPOSE: Clinical symptomatic late injury to the rectal wall occurs in about one-third of patients with prostate cancer treated with external beam irradiation.
  • Reducing the physical dose to the anterior rectal wall without a similar reduction in the posterior peripheral zone is difficult because of the proximity of the prostate to the anterior rectal wall.
  • On the basis of our previous observations in an animal model that intrarectal application of amifostine resulted in very high concentrations of amifostine and its active metabolite WR-1065 in the rectal wall, a Phase I dose-escalation clinical trial was undertaken.
  • The total dose to the prostate was 70.2 Gy in 20 patients and 73.8 Gy in 9 patients.
  • Therapy was delivered using a 4-field technique with three-dimensional conformal planning.
  • Amifostine was administered intrarectally as an aqueous solution 30 min before irradiation on the first 15 days of therapy.
  • Proctoscopy was performed before therapy and at 9 months after completion.
  • The clinical symptoms (Radiation Therapy Oncology Group scale) and a proctoscopy score were assessed during follow-up.
  • RESULTS: All patients completed therapy with no amifostine-related toxicity at any dose level.
  • With a median follow-up of 26 months, 9 patients (33%) developed rectal bleeding (8 Grade 1, 1 Grade 2).
  • At 9 months, 16 and 3 patients developed Grade 1 and Grade 2 telangiectasia, respectively.
  • This was mostly confined to the anterior rectal wall.
  • Four patients (14%) developed symptoms suggestive of radiation damage that, on sigmoidoscopy, proved to be secondary to unrelated processes.
  • These included preexisting nonspecific proctitis (n = 1), diverticular disease of the sigmoid colon (n = 1), rectal polyp (n = 1), and ulcerative colitis (n = 1).
  • Symptoms developed significantly more often in patients receiving 500-1000 mg than in patients receiving 1500-2500 mg amifostine (7 [50%] of 14 vs. 2 [15%] of 13, p = 0.0325, one-sided chi-square test).
  • Systemic absorption of amifostine and its metabolites is negligible, and close monitoring of patients is not required with rectal administration.
  • Proctoscopy is superior to symptom score as a method of assessing radiation damage of the rectal wall.

  • [Title] Colorectal carcinoma: the management of polyps, (neo)adjuvant therapy, and the treatment of metastases.
  • BACKGROUND: Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is the second most common type of cancer in Germany.
  • In view of recent major changes in the diagnosis and treatment of CRC, the S3 guideline for CRC published in its full version in 2004 was partially updated in 2008 and again in 2009.
  • METHOD: The literature was systematically searched for all articles published from 2004 onward concerning polyp management, (neo-)adjuvant treatment, and treatment of metastatic disease.
  • Evidence-based recommendations were developed in a consensus conference.
  • RESULTS: For some patients who have undergone polypectomy, the time to follow-up with colonoscopy can be lengthened.
  • In UICC stage III colon cancer, adjuvant chemotherapy with an oxaliplatin-based regimen is recommended.
  • In stage II colon cancer, adjuvant chemotherapy should be considered mainly when risk factors are present.
  • In stages II and III, neo-adjuvant therapy should be given before resection in rectal cancer.
  • In patients with metastatic disease, the use of all possible treatment options results in a median overall survival time of 24 months.
  • In some patients with primarily non-resectable liver metastases, systemic treatment may enable a secondary, potentially curative resection.
  • Therapeutic agents are chosen individually on the basis of clinical factors including the goal of treatment, the patient's general condition, and tumor molecular markers.
  • CONCLUSION: The S3 guideline contains evidence-based recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal carcinoma.

  • [Title] [Rare indication of cephalic duodenopancreatectomy with total gastrectomy--periampullary carcinoma in moderate form of familial adenomatous polyposis].
  • We present the case of a 52 years old man, with significant familial history, diagnosed with familial adenomatous polyposis-attenuated form, with no clinical and endoscopic surveillance until 2001 when he was admitted for an upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage episode.
  • Upper gastrointestinal scopy revealed duodenal adenomatous polyps and gastric hyperplastic polyps.
  • The histopathological exam revealed duodenal G2 adenocarcinoma pT3N0, and gastric hyperplastic polyps with no signs of dysplasia.
  • The surgical procedure was followed by chemotherapy.
  • In 2002 the patient was admitted for rectal bleeding and colonoscopy showed 2 sigmoid polyps, appropriate for endoscopic removal and a poly-lobate polyp in the transverse colon.
  • March 2003--the patient underwent endoscopic removal for a rectal polyp (histopathological exam: moderate dysplasia).
  • Intraoperatively were noted: peritoneal carcinomatosis and multiple liver metastasis.
  • The surgical procedure recommended in patients with attenuated form of familial adenomatous polyposis and suspect periampullary lesions is duodenopancreatectomy.
  • The particularity of the case is the association of total gastrectomy for gastric hyperplastic polyps.

  • They consisted of 24 cases of gastric GIST, 1 case of hepatic GIST, 1 case of small intestinal GIST, 4 cases of colon GIST, and 1 case of rectal GIST.
  • Endoscopy and imaging modalities including US, CT and MRI were useful to detect the tumors in all cases, and biopsies confirmed the GIST diagnosis in 21 cases.
  • Grossly, 23 cases were submucosal tumors, 6 serosa-side tumors, 1 solid tumor in the liver, and 1 rectal polyp.
  • Histologically, 28 cases were of spindle cell type and 3 of epithelioid type.
  • The chemotherapy was imatinib mesylate in 6 cases, and none in 25 cases.

  • A 74-year-old woman with a history of breast carcinoma who received tamoxifen therapy for 2 years was admitted with uterine bleeding.
  • Hysteroscopic polypectomy revealed a hyperplastic polyp.
  • The cervix, rectum, and the accompanying mass were resected.
  • Histopathologic examination revealed endocervical adenocarcinoma and endometriosis involving cervix uteri and the rectal muscular wall.
  • As cervical cancer occurred in a short period, it might be speculated that tamoxifen might have stimulated the proliferative and mitotic activity of cervical endometrial tissue which has progressed into invasive cancer in time.
