Rectal Adenoma

Adenoma of the Rectum


  • We report the case of a 75-year-old woman, presenting to the emergency department with acute renal failure and electrolyte imbalance, reporting an history of recurrent episodes of dehydration and chronic diarrhea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The cases are presented and the advantages and limitations of the method are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a case of a patient with a lower rectal adenoma extending above the dentate line, which underwent combined ESD and transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) to achieve accurate excision and prevent complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • : Carcinoma present at or within 1 mm of the surgical margin Usually recognized by cautery Measure from the superficial edge of the cautery where tissue is still recognizable High grade carcinoma (see Grading at left), even if only focal in the lesion[surgpathcriteria.stanford.edu]
  • Case presentation: In this case we describe a 28-year-old female patient suffering from 6 months of secretory diarrhea , presented to our emergency department with severe dehydration, acute renal failure, hyponatremia and hypokalemia.[imedpub.com]
Rectal Bleeding
  • Case Report A 58-year-old woman without previous major diseases starts suffering from evacuatory straining, occasional rectal bleeding and mass sensation 1 year prior to attending to a local ambulatory center.[omicsonline.org]
  • bleeding correlates with size and may be seen in as many as 67% • Imaging • Rate of detection of polyps less than 1 cm is higher with air contrast • Rate of detection of polyps 1cm or greater is about equal with single vs. double contrast • From 1/4[learningradiology.com]
  • bleeding [ 1 ].[bmcsurg.biomedcentral.com]
  • Adenomas typically cause few symptoms; however, painless rectal bleeding is the most common symptom. There is no known way to prevent polyps, but they are easily removed by colonoscopy, which eliminates the risk of cancer in most cases.[ameripath.com]
Chronic Diarrhea
  • We report the case of a 75-year-old woman, presenting to the emergency department with acute renal failure and electrolyte imbalance, reporting an history of recurrent episodes of dehydration and chronic diarrhea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It has been suggested that the triad of prerenal failure, electrolyte disorder and chronic diarrhea should always prompt a complete colonoscopy [ 4 ].[bmcsurg.biomedcentral.com]
  • Diarrhea and Acute Renal Failure.[imedpub.com]
  • Adverse events were reported by direct questioning of all patients; skin photosensitivity, changes in biochemical tests of liver function, blood pressure and heart rate, and the occurrence of GI symptoms (nausea, vomiting) were recorded for 5 patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • A prompt diagnosis plays an important role in the treatment of McKittrick-Wheelock syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract There is no consensus about the best technique to use for the surgical treatment for large rectal adenomas. The advent of laparoscopic surgery has led to the development of several new methods for the treatment of gastrointestinal tumors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The role of TAMIS in the treatment of rectal adenoma is to be defined through comparative studies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • As a result the harmony and open communication between these specialties facilitated by a multidisciplinary team approach are crucial in providing the best care to patients and ensuring successful treatment.[books.google.es]
  • Therefore, the less-invasive transsacral approach, rather than the transabdominal approach, was chosen for treatment. The lesion was successfully resected, without disturbing the pouch.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • The prognosis of IIIA approaches that of IIB etc. This is not yet in widespread use). The advent of the newer chemotherapy agents has made a significant impact on rectal cancer prognosis.[myvmc.com]
  • These have a worse prognosis than non-mucinous carsinomas. Photomicrograph of a primary mucinous adenocarcinoma. Click to enlarge.[oncolex.org]
  • What is the prognosis of rectal polyps? People with a history of polyps have an increased risk of developing polyps again in their lifetime and should have regular exams by a physician specially trained to treat diseases of the colon and rectum.[annapoliscolon.com]
  • We present this case to underline the necessity of maintaining an high clinical suspicion for this syndrome in patients with an history of unexplained chronic diarrhea, especially given that the condition has a good prognosis when diagnosed and treated[bmcsurg.biomedcentral.com]
  • PROGNOSIS AFTER TREATMENT Once a colorectal polyp is completely removed, it rarely comes back. However, at least 30% of patients will develop new polyps after removal.[fascrs.org]
