    The article presents a survival analysis on rectal cancer England and Wales up to 2001. It notes on the trend of short-term predictions of survival for patients diagnosed during 2000-2001, using hybrid analysis which suggests no improvement in the future and the deprivation of gap in five-year...

    Background: Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world, arising mostly from pre-existing adenomatous polyps (adenomas) of the large bowel. Patients with colorectal adenomas are at increased risk of colorectal cancer because of a high recurrence rate for adenomas....

    Pre-operative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for rectal cancer yields a complete tumor response in 10-30% of patients. There is an argument for omitting surgery in these patients, but this remains highly controversial and the supporting evidence based on long-term follow-up is lacking. The present...

    Purpose: Prognostic significance of intraoperative staging by surgeons and its possible complementary role with the pathological stage for evaluating the prognosis of rectal cancer after preoperative chemoradiation (CRT) is unknown. The goal of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy...
