Villous Adenoma of the Colon

Colon Adenoma Villous


Presentation

  • A case of severe fluid and electrolyte depletion resulting from a massive villous adenoma of the rectosigmoid colon is presented. The syndrome is discussed, and the often insidious presentation and life-threatening aspects are emphasized.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Surgical Procedure
  • The decision should be made considering the mortality and morbidity rates of radical surgery and the accessibility of the other surgical procedures.[casereports.in]
  • You are not looking for a surgeon since EMR is an endoscopic procedure, not a surgical procedure. EMR is basically a normal colonoscopy performed in the gastroenterology department with the use of additional advanced techniques.[sease.com]
Collapse
  • A RARE, but curable, cause of circulatory collapse in people of middle and late age has recently been managed successfully in a small community hospital.[nejm.org]
Laboratory Technician
  • Wallace Jones for advice and criticism in the management of this patient and in the preparation of this manuscript and to the laboratory technicians at Symmes Hospital for co-operation.[nejm.org]
Swelling
  • Inflammatory polyps resolve when the disease is treated and the inflammation and swelling subside.[pezimclinic.com]
Diarrhea
  • diarrhea, up to 8 times per day.[laendo.net]
  • Furthermore, the etiology of the diarrhea is often difficult to establish by the usual technics.[nejm.org]

  • These can also lead to secretory diarrhea with large volume liquid stools with few formed elements. They are commonly described as secreting large amounts of mucus, resulting in hypokalaemia in patients.[en.wikipedia.org]

Rectal Mass

  • Digital rectal examination is important in order to feel for a rectal mass, its location and relationship to the anal sphincters, its fixity to adjacent structures and to feel for any enlarged extrarectal nodule.[surgwiki.com]
Suggestibility
  • Interdigitations of the plasma membrane with enlarged intercellular spaces were frequently observed, possibly related to the loss of water and electrolytes in some of these tumors, suggesting an analogy to renal tubular plasma membrane changes in kalliopenic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Although there was no evidence of metastatic carcinoma in the dissected lymph nodes, epithelioid cell granulomas with multinucleated giant cells lacking in the central caseous necrosis suggested sarcoid reaction.[journals.lww.com]

  • Treatment is required only for uncontrollable bleeding or intussusception. Inflammatory polyps and pseudopolyps occur in chronic ulcerative colitis and in Crohn disease of the colon.[merckmanuals.com]

  • . [15] Prognosis becomes poor with malignant transformation of the lesion.[wikidoc.org]
  • Villous adenomas have a worse prognosis and warrant closer follow-up. One needs only to remember the criteria for tubular adenomas and villous adenomas, as tubulovillous adenomas are what is left over.[librepathology.org]
  • Based on the fact that the ascending colon resection showed cancer at regional stage (a positive lymph node), that tumor has a worse prognosis and should be sequence 01. Turn to the colon histology coding rules in your preferred format.[training.seer.cancer.gov]
