AbstractLocally recurrent rectal cancer is a difficult clinical problem, and surgical resection can be done only in selected patients. The aims of this study were to evaluate the results of resecting the local recurrence of rectal cancer and to analyze factors that might predict curative re-resection and those that affect survival. Forty-seven patients who underwent resection for locally recurrent rectal cancer formed the basis of the study. Twenty- four were curative in nature, and the others were palliative. There was no operative mortality, and the complication rate was 38%. The median survival of the whole group was 16.5 months. The ability to perform curative resection was found to be the only independent factor associated with improved survival. Female gender is a significant factor associated with curative resection of local recurrence. In patients with curative re-resection, local control is up to 87%. It was concluded that resection of local recurrent rectal cancer can achieve good local control and can improve survival in selected patients. The ability to perform curative resection is associated with survival benefit, and female gender is associated with the increased possibility of carrying out curative resection.
