Abstract:

Abstract Objective: To investigate if Laparoscopic-Dominant Abdominoperineal Resection with individualized levator-ani resection (LDAPR) inhibits local recurrence and prolongs survival compared to Laparoscopic Abdominoperineal Resection (APR). Methods: Rectal cancer surgery cases were retrospectively identified from September 2014 to December 2019. LDAPR treated group (55 patients) and the APR-treated group (71 patients) were included in the study. The operation time, Circumferential Resection Margin (CRM), Intraoperative tumor Perforation (IOP), postoperative complications, the two-year overall survival and local recurrence were compared in the two groups. Results: The CRM and IOP were significantly reduced in the LDAPR compared to the APR group (3.6% vs. 16.9%, t=5.522, P=0.019; 3.6% vs. 14.1%, t=3.926, P=0.048). In terms of postoperative complications, the incidence of urinary retention in LDAPR was significantly reduced than the APR group (10.9% vs. 25.4%, χ2=4.139, P=0.041). Similarly, perineal pain at 6 months or 1 year after surgery was significantly down-regulated in LDAPR than in the APR group (72.7% vs. 88.7%, χ2=5.320, P=0.021; 18.2% vs. 43.2%, χ2=8.288, P=0.004. However, there was no statistically significant difference in the postoperative complications between the LDAPR and APR groups. Finally, LDAPR led to a significantly improved two-year overall survival and a reduced local recurrence compared to APR. Conclusion: LDAPR reduce CMR, IOP, and local recurrence and simplified the perineum operation, subsequently protecting the pelvic autonomic nerves. Compared to the conventional APR, LDAPR is a promising procedure worth adopting for rectal cancer treatment.
