Cancer and benign tumors
Favorites Abstract The aim of this study was to describe a single institution's experience with transanal endoscopic microsurgery TEMS in patients with benign and malignant rectal tumors.
Material and method: This was a prospective descriptive survey. Between January and January14 patients underwent transanal endoscopic microsurgery cancer and benign tumors of benign 8 or malignant 6 rectal tumors, located 4 to 15 cm from the dentate line.
Median age was Results: The average tumor size was 3. Median length of hospital stay was 4. During the follow-up period, benign tumor recurrence was observed in one patient 7.
Histologic staging of malignant tumors was T1 2 and T2 4. In two patients with inadequate resection margins open radical surgery was performed. One had recurrent disease, which was managed by radical surgery. No cancer-related deaths were observed during the follow-up period.
There was no operative mortality. No major postoperative complications were recorded. Anal incontinence persisted for 3 weeks in one patient.
Conclusion: Transanal endoscopic microsurgery excision is a safe and precise technique and should become a procedure of choice for benign rectal tumors and selected early malignant neoplasms. Similar articles.
