Surgery Thursday Webinar #10 Recurrent rectal cancer: diagnosis and principles of treatment – now on YouTube!
Surgery Thursday Webinar organised in collaboration between UEMS Section of Surgery and the Berufsverband Österreichischer Chirurgen.
Recurrent rectal cancer: diagnosis and principles of treatment by the UEMS Division of Surgical Oncology.
Locally recurrent rectal cancer (LRRC) is a complex disease that requires a multidisciplinary approach. Treatment and prognosis depend on the site and loco-regional spreading of recurrence, the biological characteristics of the primary tumor, the method of treatment of the primary tumor, and the condition and status of the patient. Radical surgical treatment (R0 resection) remains the most important method to achieve long-term survival and improve symptom control. Surgeons must develop an individualized and detailed preoperative plan based on a clear understanding of the pelvic anatomy, take a multidisciplinary approach for achieving monoblock surgical resection with clear margins.
