Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Authors examined epidemiologic, etio-pathogenetic, clinical, and therapeutic features of recurrent colo-rectal cancer, reviewing their pesonal experience of the last seven years on 37 patients undergoing second-look laparotomy for loco-regional recurrence. Surgery was defined as radical, sub-radical with microscopic residual disease, or palliative based on preoperative staging and intra-operative findings. Correlations between age, sex, site of primary tumor, and type of surgical treatment suggest that only those patients with a radically resectable recurrence show a significant improvement of overall survival (p = 0.0013).
