Description: Although patients with baseline cT2 rectal cancer had similar pathologic stage at the time of recurrence, these patients were more likely to continue an organ preservation pathway after local regrowth through transanal local excision when compared with cT3 to cT4. Despite differences in the use of radical salvage resection, there were no differences in oncologic outcomes.

Description: There is wide variability in the length of prescription opioid use after hemorrhoidectomy. Approximately one third of patients require a second prescription in the immediate postoperative period. The optimal duration appears to be between a 5- and 10-day supply. Clinicians may be able to more efficiently discharge patients with adequate analgesia while minimizing the potential for excess supply.

Description: Patients with severe end-stage fecal incontinence can benefit from artificial bowel sphincter, but this requires a large number of reoperations, and at least 20% of patients will eventually have a colostomy. Therefore, careful patient selection and the involvement of patients in decision making regarding the potential benefits and limitations of this technique are paramount.
