E Tejero et al. Dis Colon Rectum.

Abstract

Purpose: A new procedure for the treatment of colorectal neoplastic obstructions is described.

Methods: This procedure involves the following phases: 1) placing a stent at the point of the stenosis of the colon, which enables the acute obstruction phase to be overcome; 2) recovering the general state of the patient, analyzing the development of the disease, and mechanically preparing the colon; 3) performing regulated and final surgery.

Results: In two patients, these three phases have been completed without complication and with excellent results.

Conclusion: This procedure is both safe and effective and could become the method of choice for the treatment of colorectal neoplastic obstructions.
