Editor Pick 5, Video Abstract, October 2019 Issue. Conclusions of the study: Results with the ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract procedure were not as good as hoped. The effect on fecal continence, however, was minimal. The procedure might be more suitable for low transsphincteric fistulas.

Editor Pick 4, Video Abstract, October 2019 Issue. Conclusions of the study: Results suggest that patients with rectal cancer are increasingly being treated in large hospitals where they receive more guideline-recommended therapy. Although this trend is promising, patients receiving care at larger, higher-volume facilities are still the minority. Initiatives increasing patient and provider awareness of benefits of specialized care, as well as increasing referrals to large centers may improve the use of recommended treatment and ultimately improve outcomes.

Editor Pick 2, Video Abstract, October 2019 Issue. Conclusions of the study: Poorer survival was noted in elderly patients and in those with aggressive pathology. An overall survival advantage was seen in women in the national cohort. Currently, optimal strategies should follow a patient-centered multidisciplinary approach.

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.
