Neoadjuvant treatment in locally advanced rectal cancer

Zuleyha AKGUN [1] , Esra KAYTAN SAGLAM [2]


The optimal treatment for locally advanced rectal cancer
remains an issue of debate. The surgery with total mesorectal
excision (TME) still is the standard of care. In contrast to
TME, the addition of adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapy is
necessary in terms of local disease control and to increase of
survival time. Here, we will review neoadjuvant treatment
approach in rectal carcinoma.
