abstract

  • Complete resection of bulky primary or locally recurrent rectal cancer can be performed with acceptable urological morbidity. Complete resection was obtained in 89% of patients, with 72% having urological organ invasion. Overall urological complications of 17% are acceptably low despite intensive perioperative radiation and chemotherapy. Disease-specific survival in these patients remains limited.
