HORMAZA LEON, Antonio José. Multivisceral resections in 461 cases operated of colorectal cancer. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2007, vol.22, n.4, pp.283-296. ISSN 0120-9957.

The colorectal cancer is the third more frequent cause of cancer in the U.S.A., a 12% of these tumors extend to neighboring organs. One appears the experience in multivisceral resections of the services of coloproctology of the Clinic San Pedro Claver and the Central Hospital of the Police in colorectal cancer with 62 patients of 461 cases operated from the 2000 to the 2006. The rectum tumors must receive first neoadjuvant therapy. The resection in block is the fundamental pillar of the treatment, although the morbidity and mortality are greater than in the resections standard, survival, local and systemic recurrence tends to behave as the colorectal tumors that do not require surgery extended to other organs.

Keywords : Colorectal cancer; block resection; Standard resection; neoadjuvant; total mesorectal excision; lymph node disease; survival; recurrence.
