AIM
Preoperative chemotherapy followed by radical surgery is an attractive treatment for locally advanced colon cancer (LACC) given the promising results of this approach in other locally advanced tumours. The study evaluates the outcome and treatment-related complications of perioperative oxaliplatin and capecitabine-based chemotherapy and surgery for clinical stage-III colon cancer.

METHOD
Twenty two consecutive patients with a CT-staged LACC were included. All were staged at baseline and before surgery. Surgery-related complications and oncological outcome were determined.

RESULTS
Toxicity was manageable, with 19/22 patients completing the planned chemotherapy protocol. The median time from initial diagnosis to surgery was 65.5 days. The median time from the end of chemotherapy to surgery was 22 days. After neoadjuvant treatment, tumour reduction of 69.5% was observed by CT-scan and a 59.9% decrease of SUV(max) (Standard Uptake Value) was achieved on PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography). No progressive disease was reported during preoperative chemotherapy and surgery was performed in the 22 patients. Four patients developed postoperative complications. After a median postoperative follow-up of 14.4 months, the actuarial overall and disease free survival rates were 100% and 90%.

CONCLUSION
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery and chemotherapy for LACC is safe without apparent increase of early and median term complications.
