BACKGROUND: Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic, recurrent and destructive disease of the gastrointestinal tract. Faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a therapeutic measure in which faecal microbiota from healthy people is transplanted into patients. AIM: To systematically evaluate the safety and effectiveness of treating UC with different modes of FMT. METHODS: Seven databases were searched by two independent researchers and studies related to randomized controlled trials were included i...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Women are at risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) during pregnancy but this fact is underappreciated. We performed a population-based study to evaluate the rate, predictors, and familial risk for pregnancy associated CRC in Utah. METHODS: All newly diagnosed cases of CRC between 1973 and 2014 were obtained from the Utah Cancer Registry and linked to pedigrees from the Utah Population Database. RESULTS: Of the 12,886 females diagnosed with CRC, 73 were diagnosed with CRC (0.57%) d...

PURPOSE: Systemic inflammatory response has been reported to be associated with prognosis in cancer patients. The aim of this study is to investigate the association between Systemic Immune-Inflammation Index (SII), a novel inflammation-based prognostic score and long-term outcomes among patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) after resection. METHODS: We retrospectively investigated 733 patients who underwent resection for CRC between January 2010 and December 2014 at the Jikei University Hospita...

PURPOSE: An enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol for colorectal cancer resection encourages perioperative euvolemic status, and zero-balance fluid therapy is recommended for low-risk patients. Recently, several studies have reported concerns of increased acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients within an ERAS protocol. In the present study, we investigated the impact of intraoperative zero-balance fluid therapy within an ERAS protocol on postoperative AKI. METHODS: Patients who underwent...

PURPOSE: The comparison between haemorrhoidal treatments is still unclear. Attempts have been made to adopt a unifying postoperative scoring system and thus ensure adequate comparison between clinical trials. We aimed to systematically review the available outcome scores of haemorrhoidal treatment. METHODS: MEDLINE/Pubmed, Web of science, Embase and Cochrane were searched from database implementation until the December 6th 2019. All studies describing or referencing a score to assess haemorrhoid...

PURPOSE: BRAF mutations represent the main negative prognostic factor for metastatic colorectal cancer and a supposed negative predictive factor of response to standard chemotherapy. We have explored survival difference in right-sided colon cancer (RCC) patients according to BRAF mutations, with the aim to identify any predictive factors of response to targeted-based therapy. METHODS: A retrospective study of RCC patients, with BRAF known mutation status, treated with chemotherapy (CT) from Octo...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to develop a risk model for the prediction of 30-day unplanned readmission rate after surgery for colon cancer. METHOD: This study was a cross-sectional analysis of data from Nationwide Readmissions Database, collected during 2010-2014. Patients >/= 18 years of age who underwent surgery for colon cancer were included in the study. The primary outcome of the study was 30-day unplanned readmission rate. RESULTS: There were 141,231 index hospitalizations for s...

PURPOSE: Although multiple studies have examined anastomotic leakage (AL) after low anterior resection (LAR), their definitions of AL varied, and few have studied late diagnosed AL after surgery. This study aimed to characterize late AL after anal sphincter saving surgery (SSS) for rectal cancer by examining clinical characteristics, risk factors, and management of patients with late AL compared with early AL. METHODS: Data from January 2005 to December 2014 were collected from a total of 1903 c...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of preoperative anemia and impacts of anemia and transfusion on survival in patients undergoing surgery for colorectal cancer. METHODS: This study included patients who underwent surgery for primary colorectal cancer between 2011 and 2012. The influence of preoperative anemia and postoperative transfusion on recurrence-free survival and overall survival were retrospectively investigated. Anemia was defined as hemoglobin level < 13 g/dL in male...
