Abstract:

Despite advances in screening, rectal cancer remain widely prevalent.The location of the rectum within the pelvis presents challenges with regard to evaluation, staging and resection of rectal cancer. Surgery remain the mainstay of treatment, it is standardized (Total Mesorectal Excision - TME), but additionally neoadjuvant therapy has become more widespread in recent years. Neoadjuvant therapy for rectal cancer remains non- standardized globally, but significant data favoring the use of preoperative chemotherapy and /or radiation therapy continue to accrue.The management is of multidisciplinary type, the surgeon is the leader of the team, but controversies still exist with regard to the type and the timing of the therapeutical means. Further trials will likely refine strategies to identify optimal therapeutic protocols.

KEY WORDS: RECTAL CANCER, MULTIMODAL TREATMENT, CHEMOTHERAPY, RADIATION THERAPY MULTIDISCIPLINARY MANAGEMENT
