  • [Title] Radiotherapy in the treatment of resectable rectal adenocarcinoma.
  • The goal of treatment is to cure whereas maintaining sphincter function and minimizing toxicity.
  • Although the mainstay of the treatment is surgery, radiotherapy (RT) is used in a substantial proportion of patients depending on the location and extent of the tumor.
  • The aim of this article is to discuss the role of RT in patients with resectable rectal adenocarcinoma.
  • Results show that patients with T1N0 exophytic, well to moderately differentiated, mobile tumors < or = 3 cm in diameter may be treated with either transanal excision or endocavitary RT.
  • The advantages of endocavitary RT are that it is an outpatient procedure requiring, at most, local anesthesia and is suitable for elderly, infirm patients.
  • The disadvantage is that few of these treatment units are available.
  • The addition of concomitant chemotherapy probably enhances downstaging and may improve the likelihood of sphincter preservation.
  • Patients with T3 and/or N1 rectal cancers have a relatively high probability of local-regional recurrence after surgery alone.
  • Preoperative RT and postoperative RT combined with adjuvant chemotherapy have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of local-regional recurrence and improve survival.
  • Whether preoperative RT alone or combined with chemotherapy is more efficacious than postoperative chemoradiation remains unclear.
  • Depending on tumor location and extent, adjuvant RT may improve the probability of local-regional control and survival for patients with locally advanced rectal adenocarcinomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [A case of long-term survival after chemo-radiation for postoperative local recurrence of rectal cancer].
  • The patient was a 64-year-old male who underwent an abdomino-perineal resection (D3) for advanced lower rectal carcinoma with a formulated vesicorectal abscess.
  • The tumor was a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma, type 2 in the Japanese Classification of Colorectal Carcinoma, and was measured 5.5x4.3 cm in size.
  • He received a postoperative chemotherapy with oral UFT-E (400 mg/day) for 1 year.
  • After 2 years from the surgery, the patient developed a perineal pain, and pelvic CT scans revealed a 4 cm mass anterior to the sacrum.
  • Radiotherapy was given to the pelvic region at a total dose of 70 Gy (Given 2 Gy each x 35 fragments).
  • Chemotherapy with CDDP and 5-FU was administered via the right internal iliac artery followed by administration of 5'-DFUR (600 mg/day).
  • After that regimen, a recurrence of the pelvic tumor caused an increase in pain, and the patient developed renal failure.
  • He died after 4 years and 10 months from the initial detection of recurrence.
  • This report presents a case of local recurrence of advanced rectal carcinoma, in which we were able to achieve a long-term survival and improvement in QOL by an intensive multidisciplinary therapy.

  • The first patient was a 63-year-old woman who underwent distal gastrectomy and partial hepatectomy under a diagnosis of stomach cancer with liver metastasis.
  • The second patient was a 66-year-old man who had undergone surgery for rectal cancer 6 years previously and underwent partial hepatectomy under a diagnosis of metastasis of rectal cancer to the liver.
  • The gastric cancer was a papillary adenocarcinoma limited to the mucosa, and the rectal cancer was a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma limited to the subserosa.
  • The cut surface showed that both masses were well circumscribed and divided into lobules by fibrous tissue.
  • Obliterating phlebitis suggesting infection via the portal vein was seen in the adjacent liver tissue in both cases.
  • According to previous cases reported in the literature, there are three types of cancers associated with hepatic IPT: gastrointestinal tract cancer, biliary tract cancer, and cancers that need strong systemic chemotherapy.
  • The underlying cancer types of IPT of the liver are almost similar to those associated with pyogenic liver abscesses suggesting the etiological correlation between IPT and abscesses of the liver.

  • [Title] [Case report of two colorectal cancer patients with liver metastasis showing favorable response to fluorouracil and l-leucovorin therapy].
  • We treated 2 patients with colorectal cancer accompanied by liver metastasis who showed favorable response to combined treatment with fluorouracil and l-Leucovorin.
  • Case 1 was a 40-year-old man with rectal carcinoma (moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma; se, n1, p1, H0, stage IV).
  • At course 3, the liver metastasis showed partial response and, during the 18 months after the 7th course, his peritoneal dissemination and other lesions were well controlled.
  • As of 30 months post-treatment the patient was alive.
  • Case 2 was a 60-year-old man with rectal carcinoma (well differentiated adenocarcinoma; ss, n1, p0, H1, stage IV).
  • Adverse drug reactions in both patients were controlled on an outpatient basis.
  • While in the past liver metastasis has been treated by hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy, a combination therapy with fluorouracil and l-Leucovorin can be used on an outpatient basis and results in a favorable response.
  • This suggests that this combination therapy has clinical significance.

  • [Title] [Uncommon rectal adenocarcinoma metastases].
  • Rectal cancer treatment has become multimodal as a result of significant advances in imaging diagnostic, in surgery technique of re section and in neo and adjuvant therapy.
  • The aim of the case report was to present a successfully treated adenocarcinoma recti and adenocarcinoma of hepatal flexurae with recidivistic metastasis and an extremely rare intergrowth of the metastasis into venous system.
  • A 61 year old patient underwent low resection of recti according to Dixon because of well differentiated adenocarcinoma with classification T3N0M0.
  • The patient was reoperated because of metastasis of adenocarcinoma in the abdominal wall (16 x 15 x 20 cm) after chemotherapy (FUL-5-fluorouracyl) and radiation dose of 50.4 Gy.
  • The metastasis of abdominal wall was extirpated after another cycle of adjuvant therapy of FUL+Leukovorin.
  • 26 months after the first operation, a new sessile polyp was found in the hepatal flexurae with histological finding of well differentiated adenocarcinoma.
  • Since lymphatic nodes were without metastasis, the patient was not indicated for chemotherapy.

  • [Title] [A case of high-dose rate interstitial brachytherapy for locally recurrent rectal cancer].
  • The patient was a 55-year-old female who underwent an abdomino-perineal resection for advanced lower rectal cancer.
  • The tumor was a well differentiated adenocarcinoma, type 2 in the Japanese classification of colorectal carcinoma, and was measured 2.3 cm in size.
  • She received adjuvant chemotherapy with 5'-DFUR.
  • After 13 months from the surgery, the patient developed a hip pain.
  • Biopsy from the tumor revealed adenocarcinoma.
  • Chemotherapy with CPT-11 (230 mg/body) and 5'-DFUR (800 mg/body) was administered for 2 cycles.
  • Because the tumor was enlarged, high-dose rate interstitial brachytherapy was given to the recurrent site at a total dose of 54 Gy/9 fractions/5 days.
  • Hence, high dose rate interstitial brachytherapy appears to be effective for locally recurrent rectal cancer.

  • We have experienced successful treatment of a multiple hepatic metastasis of rectal cancer with combination chemotherapy.
  • The patient is a 57-year-old male with bowel obstruction accompanied by rectal cancer (SE, N3, P1, H3, M (-) stage IV) who underwent a Hartmann operation with D3 lymph node dissection on July 6, 2000.
  • The histopathological findings revealed a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma (se, INFbeta, n3, ly2, v2, p1).
  • From the 11th postoperative day, combination chemotherapy using 5-FU 750 mg/day and LV 300 mg/day was performed once a week.
  • When he underwent 5 combination chemotherapy treatments, adverse effects of grade 3 occurred, and the serum CEA level rose rapidly.
  • We changed his regimen at that time.
  • He underwent 2 courses of combination chemotherapy with 5-FU 500 mg/day and CDDP 10 mg/day for 5 days.
  • Additional courses of combination chemotherapy with 5-FU 500 mg/day, LV 25 mg/day and CDDP 10 mg/day were performed weekly in the outpatient department.
  • The treatment was effective, and a complete response (CR) was noted 4 months after the chemotherapy.
  • The same combination chemotherapy was performed biweekly for one year after CR.

  • [Title] Transanal excision for low rectal cancers is curative in early-stage disease with favorable histology.
  • Controversy still exists as to the optimal treatment of early-stage low rectal cancers.
  • We identified 20 patients from our prospective tumor registry database that underwent transanal resection of early rectal cancers between 1988 and 1998.
  • All T1 lesions were well or moderately well differentiated, and none had lymphovascular invasion.
  • Four patients had postoperative adjuvant therapy (radiation alone, two; radiation and chemotherapy, two) for close margins after they refused an abdominal perineal resection.
  • This series suggests that transanal excision is a safe and effective treatment for selected early low rectal cancers with favorable histology.

  • [Title] [Efficacy of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy for colorectal cancer].
  • We attempted postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy for stage II or III colorectal cancer.
  • To investigate the efficacy of the adjuvant chemotherapy, we retrospectively reviewed all 293 colorectal cancer patients who underwent curative resection between 1990 and 1996 in Kurume University Hospital.
  • The patients were divided into two groups according to whether or not they received postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy.
  • The disease-free survival rate in Group 1 was significantly higher than that in Group 2, but only for those with rectal cancer, with no significant difference for those with colon cancer.
  • Findings were similar between the two groups for those with stage II, stage IIIa, a low grade of lymphatic and venous invasion, and well-differentiated adenocarcinoma.
  • Postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy in colorectal cancer might reduce the risk of recurrence, particularly in cases of rectal cancer.
  • However, postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy was insufficient for those with highly advanced cancer or a biologically aggressive tumor.

  • [Title] [A case of advanced rectal cancer with multiple liver metastases successfully treated by perioperative administration of UFT and oral leucovorin].
  • The patient was a sixty-five-year-old man who had an advanced rectal cancer (Ra, type 2) with liver metastases.
  • The pathological finding was moderately-differentiated adenocarcinoma.
  • He was treated with 5-FU via the hepatic artery, but the therapy failed due to catheter infection after 3 postoperative months.
  • Then, he received general 5-FU/l-LV therapy intravenously from 3 to 8 months after the operation, and oral UFT/LV (Uzel®) from 9 to 22 months.
  • Next, we switched to single UFT therapy at 23 months because CT findings showed remarkable calcification in the liver metastases.
  • We switched the chemotherapy again to UFT/Uzel and mFOLFOX6, but decided to perform hepatectomy of S6/7 at 39 months since it proved ineffective.
  • Now, NC in the liver is continued 67 months after the first operation, and the patient is doing well.

  • We report a case of successfully treated lower rectal cancer with both inguinal lymph nodes by chemoradiotherapy.
  • A colonoscopy revealed primary rectal cancer.
  • The histological diagnosis was well to moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma.
  • A computed tomography showed metastases to pararectal, both inguinal lymph nodes and right external iliac.
  • After a ileostomy construction was done, he was treated with intensity modulated radiotherapy (a total 50.4 Gy) and chemotherapy with FOLFOX.
  • Nine months after radiation therapy, however, multiple lung and liver metastases were observed by a computed tomography, which were treated by systemic chemotherapy with FOLFOX and bevacizumab.
  • The primary tumor and metastases to lymph nodes are still controlled well for 2 years after the initial chemoradiotherapy.

  • A 74-years old man was referred to our hospital for treatment of a rectal mass.
  • Colonoscopy revealed villous tumor covering all the lower rectal lumen.
  • Rectosigmoidectomy with lymph node dissection was performed with the diagnosis of rectal cancer that metastasized to the liver.
  • Histological and immuno- histochemical features showed coexistent poorly-differentiated small cell neuroendocrine cell (NEC) carcinoma and non-invasive well-differentiated adenocarcinoma in tubulovillous adenoma.
  • However the chemotherapy with FOLFOX and Bevacizumab was performed postoperatively, the patient died in cancer 3 months after surgery.
  • Rectal poorly-differentiated NEC carcinomas are thought to be a tumor with a high malignant potential.
  • They would be evaluated, and effective multimodal therapy for NEC carcinomas should be established.

  • [Title] Isolated colostomy site recurrence in rectal cancer-two cases with review of literature.
  • Both patients had received adjuvant chemotherapy following surgery.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: First case was a 30-year-old male that had reported with large bowel obstruction due to an obstructing ulcero-proliferative growth (poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma) at the colostomy site after abdomino-perineal resection, performed for low rectal cancer six years previously.
  • Second case was a 47-year-old male that presented with acute large bowel obstruction due to an annular growth (well differentiated adenocarcinoma) in the upper rectum.
  • Five years following closure of colostomy, he presented with two parietal masses at the previous colostomy site scar, which, on fine needle aspiration cytology were found to be well-differentiated adenocarcinomas of colorectal type.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Colostomy site/scar recurrence of rectal carcinoma is rare and could be due to various etiological factors, although the exact causative mechanism is not known.

  • [Title] [An unresectable advanced gastric cancer with Virchow's metastasis, carcinomatous ascites and rectal stenosis, effectively managed with combined chemotherapy of biweekly paclitaxel and TS-1].
  • A 43-year-old woman who complained of abdominal fullness, appetite loss, and constipation was diagnosed as unresectable advanced schirrhous gastric cancer with left supra-clavicular lymph node metastases, massive ascites, rectal stenosis, and bilateral hydronephrosis due to peritoneal metastases.
  • The biopsy specimen showed a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with signet-ring cells.
  • After placement of the bilateral ureteral stents, she was treated with combined chemotherapy of biweekly paclitaxel (120 mg/m2, day 1, day 15) and TS-1 (80 mg/day, days 1-14 with 2-weeks rest).
  • Subjective symptoms were relieved after one course of the chemotherapy.
  • After 3 courses, computed tomography showed markedly reduced supra-clavicular lymph node metastases and no ascites.
  • Radiographic and endoscopic examinations also demonstrated remarkable improvements in compliance of the gastric and rectal walls.
  • After the first course, the treatment was continued on an outpatient basis.
  • There were no adverse effects over grade 2 throughout six courses of the chemotherapy.
  • The biweekly paclitaxel and TS-1 chemotherapy may well be an effective treatment for advanced schirrhous gastric cancer with carcinomatous peritonitis.
