Effectiveness of surgical salvage therapy for patients with locally uncontrolled anal carcinoma after sphincter-conserving treatment

Abstract

Locally persistent or recurrent anal carcinoma represents a clinically significant problem, the management of which remains the subject of some controversy. Although the few current data suggest that radical surgery remains the sole salvage treatment able to provide some chance of cure, some authors have reported disappointingly low success rates. The current study presents the outcome of patients who failed locally after receiving radiotherapy or chemoradiotherapy for anal carcinoma.
