2019 Best Video of the ASCRS Annual Meeting

Every year the Video-Based Education Committee of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) receives high-quality videos from national and international experts for consideration for presentation at the ASCRS annual meeting. Videos are evaluated through a rigorous, anonymous, and unbiased peer-review process. The best eight are selected for podium presentation at the video session. One of these eight is selected by the Awards Committee to receive THE BARTON HOEXTER, MD, BEST VIDEO AWARD. An additional 40 videos are selected for presentation in the video room during the meeting. Five of the videos selected for podium presentation are submitted to Diseases of the Colon & Rectum to provide members of the Society, trainees, and journal subscribers access to the “best of the best” of the annual meeting video session.

Incidence rates of anal squamous cell carcinoma in people living with HIV increased significantly from 2004 to 2017, especially in men who have sex with men who were not being screened. Participation in the SCAN program significantly reduced the incidence of anal squamous cell carcinoma in men who have sex with men, in whom focus should be placed, especially on those presenting with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention category C and advanced immune suppression.

No urothelial carcinomas were detected by screening urinalysis in our cohort of asymptomatic patients with Lynch syndrome. False-positive testing led to extensive, mostly uninformative, workups. If urothelial cancer screening is to continue, more effective screening approaches need to be identified.

Young age at the onset of disease, lower age at surgery, and postoperative diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and indeterminate colitis were the factors correlating with perianal fistulas. Delayed healing of the ileoanal anastomosis with partial separation and/or stricture also correlated with the onset of perianal fistulas. The severity of rectal inflammation at the time of surgery or the presence of stapled versus handsewn anastomosis did not correlate with the development of perianal fistulas.

In patients with locally advanced rectal cancer undergoing neoadjuvant chemoradiation, baseline chronic kidney disease was associated with less use of adjuvant chemotherapy and decreased disease-free survival. Chronic kidney disease was not independently associated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy/radiotherapy completion rate, pathologic complete response, or overall survival. These data suggest that patients with locally advanced rectal cancer with chronic kidney disease may have distinct outcomes and, accordingly, the results of landmark clinical trials may not be generalizable to this population.

Compared with inferior mesenteric artery ligation, superior rectal artery ligation is not associated with either worse technical or oncologic outcomes. Given the potential risks of inadequate blood flow to the proximal limb of the anastomosis and autonomic nerve injury, we advocate for increased use of superior rectal artery ligation

Progression of low-grade dysplasia to adenocarcinoma, regardless of its being unifocal or multifocal, remains very low in the setting of adequate surveillance and medical management. The presence of multifocal low-grade dysplasia should not change the decision making to pursue ongoing endoscopic surveillance versus proctocolectomy. Patients who had primary sclerosing cholangitis with dysplasia found on random biopsies may be at highest risk for dysplasia progression.
