Managing Postoperative Pain in the Cancer Patient

Diseases of the Colon and Rectum Journal

In the March issue of Diseases of the Colon & Rectum, surgeons from Australia discuss postoperative pain control pain control following one of the most extensive operations performed for pelvic cancer. In an era where many studies have shown that patients do better after surgery with use of lesser amounts of opioid pain medication, this can be particularly challenging in those patients who have taken a significant amount of pain medication before surgery. This is exactly what was shown in this study.

Is Your Child in Excellent or Very Good Health? If Not, Read On...

Diseases of the Colon and Rectum Journal

According to 2015 National Health Interview Survey data published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, it is estimated that about 85% of children under the age of 18 are in excellent or very good health. What happens to the rest? Many are considered “Children with Special Healthcare Needs” (CSHCN) and have special health care requirements, perhaps due to common chronic conditions of childhood such as asthma, autism spectrum disorders, or uncommon ones as described in the March issue of Diseases of the Colon & Rectum. Dr. Sarah Cairo and her colleagues from the Delivery of Surgical Care Committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Section on Surgery, discuss the unique situation facing pediatric patients with congenital anal rectal malformations as they grow older and face the transition from pediatric to adult health care. This article and topic have wide-reaching implications for countless other medical problems that affect the pediatric age group.
