    Computed tomographic (CT) scanning has been used to assess the extent of local spread in 85 patients with rectal carcinoma. In 37 patients with carcinoma of the rectum who were scanned before surgery, good correlation was found between the extent of local invasion, as assessed by scanning, and...

    OBJECTIVES Bronchial-origin involvement by endobronchial tumours or direct invasion by tumour or metastatic lymph nodes is a relative contraindication for video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy. However, selected cases can be resected by VATS bronchoplasty. METHODS Between 2006 and 2009,...

    Background: Rectal cancer constitutes about one-third of all gastrointestinal (GI) tract tumors. Because of the high recurrence rates (30%) in rectal cancer, it is vitally important to accurately stage these tumours preoperatively so that appropriate surgical resection can be undertaken. MRI is...
