summary/abstract:

Colorectal cancer is a major cause of death in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis. Despite evidence for prophylactic colectomy, there is no ideal therapy for patients with coexisting familial adenomatous polyposis and colorectal cancer. We evaluated the correlation between surgery for familial adenomatous polyposis and multimodal treatment for colorectal cancer, and clarified prognosis of Japanese patients with familial adenomatous polyposis and colorectal cancer.
