Abstract

Adjuvant radiotherapy in advanced rectal cancer is currently considered of interest: preoperative radiotherapy in particular seems to provide better results. However, doubts in its use arise from fear of technical difficulties at surgery and increase of complications. In Authors' opinion, though, preoperative radiotherapy associated with perineal omentoplasty represents a real progress in the management of rectal cancer. Preliminary experience supports this feeling.
