Rectal tumor recurrence: What more may we learn?

Antonio Manenti, Massimiliano Salati, Alberto Farinetti, Maurizio Zizzo, Emilio Simonini.

Abstract
Background: Notwithstanding real progress in the treatment of rectal cancers, local recurrence remains a challenging problem. We performed a retrospective observational study focusing on anatomo-surgical data.
Methods: In our retrospective study, we adopted new morphological classifications of primary tumor downstaging, after neoadjuvant treatment, and of local recurrence of rectal cancers, mainly based on CT and MRI images.
Results: Different risk factors of rectal cancer recurrence were identified: its initial advanced stage, its high histological grading, and its non-responsiveness to neoadjuvant treatment. In addition, particular anatomo-surgical points have been underlined, mainly focused on the total mesorectal excision.
Conclusions: We reaffirmed the value of a correct surgical technique, although other aspects of this disease demand further research.

Key words: Rectal cancer, recurrent, computed tomography, mesorectal excision, neoadjuvant radio-chemotherapy
