What testing should be done in pt with suspected local/regional recurrence of bowel cancer?
Patients suspected of having a locoregional recurrence should undergo comprehensive restaging, including a computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis and a colonoscopy.
PET scan is indicated if staging CT scans are negative (gerater sensitivity for distant metastatic disease)
What is the survival for patients who underwent an R0 resection of colon cancer?
three-year overall survival of 58 percent
What is R0 resection?
microscopic negative margins
What is the posttreatment surveillance for stage II or III CRC?
posttreatment surveillance usually consists of
- periodic history and physical examination (q3-6mo)
- serial assay of the serum concentrations CEA (q3-6mo)
- annual surveillance CT scans (q6-18mo)
- colonoscopy to detect metachronous primaries (at 1y then q3-5y)
Most of these recommendations last for approx 5y
