Patients with low rectal cancer in the Netherlands are more likely to receive a restorative procedure with a transanal approach, compared with a laparoscopic or robotic procedure. Short-term oncological outcomes are comparable between the 3 minimally invasive techniques.

Most colorectal surgery randomized controlled trials have a low fragility index. In 57% of trials, more patients were lost to follow-up than would be required to change the outcome of the trial from “significant” to “nonsignificant” based on the p value. This emphasizes the importance of assessing the robustness of clinical trials when considering their clinical application, rather than relying solely on the p value.

Short-course total neoadjuvant therapy was associated with improved downstaging and similar progression-free survival compared with chemoradiation. These results were achieved with shortened radiation courses, improved treatment completion, and less time with diverting ostomies. Short-course total neoadjuvant therapy is an optimal regimen for locally advanced rectal cancer.

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.
