Long-term Outcome of Radical Excision Versus Phenolization of the Sinus Tract in Primary Sacrococcygeal Pilonidal Sinus Disease: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Diseases of the Colon & Rectum - Current Issue
by
3w ago
BACKGROUND: Phenolization of pilonidal sinus disease has been shown to have advantages over radical excision with regard to short-term outcome; however, long-term outcomes are essentially lacking. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to compare the long-term outcome of pit excision and phenolization of the sinus tracts vs radical excision with primary wound closure in pilonidal sinus disease. DESIGN: Single-center, randomized controlled trial. SETTINGS: A primary teaching hospital in the Netherlands. PATIENTS: The study population included patients with primary pilonidal ..read more

Case-Matched Comparison of Functional and Quality of Life Outcomes of Local Excision and Total Mesorectal Excision Following Chemoradiotherapy for Rectal Cancer
Diseases of the Colon & Rectum - Current Issue
by
3w ago
BACKGROUND: Neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy followed by radical surgery is the standard curative treatment for mid- to low-rectal cancer. However, the combination of these treatments may affect patients’ GI and genitourinary functions and their quality of life. In the cases of good clinical response to neoadjuvant treatment, local excision is a rectal sparing strategy that would limit these side effects. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to compare the effects of local excision or conventional laparoscopic total mesorectal excision after chemoradiotherapy in patients with rectal cancer. DESIGN ..read more
