Multidisciplinary approach to locally advanced rectal cancer: results of a single institution trial.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Locally advanced rectal cancer carries out a dismail prognosis despite optimal surgery in terms of local and distant relapses. Neoadjuvant chemoradiation offers good results with tumor downstaging and downsizing and leads to more radical surgery with conservative intent. Selection of patients and an intensive chemotherapy may improve long term results. Our experience with a combined polichemotherapy and radiotherapy for low advanced rectal cancer is presented.
