Both procedures are effective in the treatment of hemorrhoidal disease grades I to III. Polidocanol foam sclerotherapy was more effective than rubber band ligation when considering complete success. Patients in the polidocanol foam sclerotherapy group needed fewer treatment sessions, had lower recurrence rates, and were less likely to have complications.

Initial creation of diverting loop ileostomy may be offered to a subset of refractory constipation patients not falling into classical categories after thorough workup. Patients who self-report symptom improvement, have ileostomy output >200 mL/day, and do not require bowel medication may have acceptable results with subsequent colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis.

Implementation of initiatives targeting enhanced team continuity, the standardization of rehydration therapies, and improved patient education decreased readmission rates in patients with new ileostomies. Rural centers, where outpatient resources are not as readily available or accessible, stand to benefit the most from these types of targeted interventions to decrease readmission rates.

Most patients with rectal cancer relied on referrals in selecting their surgeon, and those who did were less likely to receive surgery at a National Cancer Institute–designated or high-volume hospitals compared to those who considered reputation. Future research is needed to determine the impact of these decision factors on clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction, and quality of life. In addition, patients should be aware that relying on physician referral may not result in treatment from the most experienced or comprehensive care setting in their area.

The knowledge that MRI-based restaging after neoadjuvant therapy overestimates circumferential margin proximity may render some surgical radicality unnecessary and thereby help avoid the associated morbidity. With the recognition that MRI-based assessment of margin proximity may not be reliable for anterior margin and for distal tumors, radiologists may want to use greater caution in interpreting images of tumors with these characteristics and to acknowledge the uncertainty in their reports.

This study is the first to identify key functional outcomes after pouch surgery with direct input from a large panel of ileoanal pouch patients. The inclusion of patients in all stages of the consensus process allowed for a true patient-centered approach in defining the core domains that should be focused on in future studies of pouch function.

High-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions after anal squamous cell carcinoma are more common after excision only than after chemoradiation. Local recurrence is low in this high-resolution anoscopy surveillance group in which high-grade squamous intraepithelial disease was ablated. Excision of small perianal cancers appears safe; however, a subset of patients is at excess risk.

A reasonable consensus was reached by the Pelvic Floor Disorders Consortium on the pelvic floor symptom measurement tools and patient-reported instruments and questionnaires that should be recommended in a routine clinical setting and as a baseline measure in clinical research addressing common pelvic floor symptoms, including a long and short form. These tools can be augmented with additional quality-of-life tools and more robust measurement tools when detailed information about a condition is needed to fine-tune decision making.

Editor Pick 3, Video Abstract, November 2019 Issue.
CONCLUSION: In a large cohort of patients undergoing IPAA for ulcerative colitis with at least a 5-year follow-up, anti-tumor necrosis factor exposure was the only independent risk factor for the development of pouchitis. These agents may “precondition” the pouch to develop pouchitis through alterations in the microbiome and/or local host immunity of the terminal ileum.

Editor Pick 1, Video Abstract, October 2019 Issue. Conclusions of the study: Post-neoadjuvant chemoradiation lateral pelvic lymph node size ≥5 mm was strongly associated with pathologic positivity. No patients with size <5 mm had pathologically positive lymph nodes. Following lateral pelvic lymph node dissection, no patients with a positive lateral pelvic lymph node developed lateral compartment recurrence. Therefore, patients who have rectal cancer with clinical evidence of lateral pelvic lymph node metastasis and post-neoadjuvant chemoradiation lateral pelvic lymph node size ≥5 mm should be considered for lateral pelvic lymph node dissection at the time of total mesorectal excision.
