4 months ago
A 70-year old patient was investigated in our department for abdominal pain and hematochezia. Clinical examination revealed a distended abdomen and the blood analysis revealed a hemoglobin value of 7 g/dl. Colonoscopy revealed a stenotic transverse colon tumor and upper endoscopy revealed tumor invasion at the level of the greater curvature.
The CT scan confirmed a locally advanced transverse colon tumor with gastric and liver invasion and parietal epigastric peritoneum, partial left diaphragm and pericardium adhesion.
A transverse colon resection en bloc with segmental gastrectomy, atypical segments 2-3 hepatectomy, partial resection of the anterior peritoneum, partial resection of the left diaphragm and partial resection of the pericardium.
The reconstructions were performed as follows: end to end gastro-gastroanastomosis, primary left phrenoraphy with left pleurostomy, pericardium reconstruction with vascular Hemagard substitution vascular patch and proximal end colostomy.
The final pathological examination revealed a colonic adenocarcinoma pT4bpN0 LV+ Pn+ R0.
