Mean of distance from anal verge
was 8.90[+ or -]1.692 cm (6-13 cm).

(5) Interestingly, subgroup analysis indicated that this improvement was most significant in tumors 5 to 10 cm from the anal verge
and suggested that there was no benefit to neoadjuvant radiation in patients with low or high rectal tumors.
The preoperative variables were age at operation, sex, PCRT, location of tumor from the anal verge
, clinical T/N categories, and time interval from PCRT to the operation.
Caption: Figure 2: (a) Colonoscopy identifies edematous stenotic lesion spreading over the entire circumference in the rectum at 10-18 cm from the anal verge
. (b) Chromoendoscopy using indigo carmine was performed.
There were no significant differences between the groups in terms of age, gender, BMI, ASA score, clinical stage, distance of the tumor from the anal verge
, rate of receiving upfront chemoradiation, and rate of no residual lesions after such preoperative therapy.

(2008) reported the case of a 65-year-old man who developed severe bleeding from the rectal mucosa due to a laceration, 6 cm from the anal verge
, which was sutured.
At the first visit he underwent an urgent operation for a perianal abscess on the right side of the anal verge
. On his left perianal region he had an unusual condylomatous plaque (Fig.
A colonoscopy was also done to investigate her altered bowel habit and it revealed a benign-looking stricture in the sigmoid about 25cm from the anal verge
which was easily bypassed by the scope.
Meanwhile, colonoscopy revealed a small 0.2 cm x 0.2 cm polyp that was 20 cm away from the anal verge
. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the abdomen revealed a nodular lesion measuring approximately 1.8 cm between the rectum and prostate [Figure 1].
This retrospective study included 149 consecutive patients with rectal cancer (within 15 cm from anal verge
), who had undergone elective rectal resection with primary anastomosis between 2006 and 2010 at the Institute for Oncology of Vojvodina, Department of Surgical Oncology.
A digital rectal examination revealed a foreign body lying transversely across the anus about 2.5 cm from the anal verge
. A pelvic x-ray confirmed the presence of a foreign body--a pin (FIGURE 1).
This arose four months after an APR for a localized rectal cancer close to the anal verge
. He developed a postoperative perineal wound infection complicated by abscess formation and subsequent incontinence after the abscess ruptured.
The product is to be used for the induction of remission in patients with active mild-to-moderate distal ulcerative colitis extending up to 40cm from the anal verge
