Comparison of local recurrence of rectal cancer after two radical operations using total mesorectal excision



Comparison of local recurrence of rectal cancer after two radical operations using total mesorectal excision



Zhonghua Wai Ke Za Zhi 40(11): 820-825



To compare the difference in local recurrence Dixon and Miles groups after total mesorectal excision. One hundred and seventy-three patients with rectal cancer were divided into two groups (Dixon group, 123 patients; Miles group 50 patients). Total mesorectal excision was made according to Heald's method. The local recurrence in the Dixon and Miles groups was 4.8% (6/123) and 18.0% (9/50) respectively (P < 0.05), and in the Miles group before and after 1997 was 36.8% (7/19) and 6.5% (2/31) respectively (P < 0.05), 4.8% in LRR (P < 0.01). No significant difference was observed in the local recurrence between the two groups (P > 0.05). Total mesorectal excision is an important factor reducing local recurrence after radical operation for rectal cancer.
