We have read with interest the article by Vuik et al that reported the trends in early-onset colorectal cancer (eoCRC) in 20 European countries.1 On the basis of data from nine of 20 Italian regions covering the years 1996–2009, Italy was the only European country where the incidence of eoCRC has dropped. This picture is supported by the latest findings based on cancer records covering almost 36 million Italian residents (60% of the population, almost 15 millions aged 20-49 years) in the data se...

Abstract Introduction Failure to rescue (FTR) patients from postoperative complications could contribute to the variability in surgical mortality seen among hospitals with different volumes. We sought to examine the impact of complications and FTR on mortality following rectal surgery. Methods The National Italian Hospital Discharge Dataset allowed to identify 75,280 patients who underwent rectal surgery between 2002 and 2014. Hospital volume was stratified into tertiles. Rates of major complica...

Objective The impact of a screening programme on colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence in its target population depends on several variables, including coverage with invitations, participation rate, positivity rate of the screening test, compliance with an invitation to second-level assessment and endoscopists’ sensitivity. We propose a synthetic indicator that may account for all the variables influencing the potential impact of a screening programme on CRC incidence. Design We defined the ‘rate of...
