Low anterior resection treatment for middle and lower rectal cancer
Objective: To evaluate the results of low anterior resection treatment for middle and lower rectal cancer. Methods: Clinical and follow-up data of 196 patients with middle and lower rectal cancer who received low anterior resection treatment from June 1991 to June 2001 were retrospectively analyzed. Results: anterior resection technique including double stapling technique, pull-through and Park’s operations could get a standard radical resection and had no significant differences in 1, 3, 5 and 10 years survival rates comparing with the abdominoperineal resection (Miles’). Conclusion: The experience suggests that the low anterior resection technique was safe and simple, had less bleeding and fewer complications and could increase the life-quality of the patients with rectal cancer.
