AIM: To measure the 30-day mortality and delayed complication rates following radiologically inserted gastrostomy (RIG) placement and determine the predictive risk factors for 30-day mortality and delayed complications to aide pre-procedure informed consent. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis was undertaken of RIG insertions between July 2012 and August 2017 at a single tertiary centre, which included 373 patients (56% male; median age: 65 years, range: 19-92 years). Data were collected from electronic databases on patient demographics, RIG indication, all-cause mortality, complication rates, patient co-morbidities, and biochemical/haematological parameters. Multivariate analysis was performed to identify predictive risk factors for complications and mortality. RESULTS: The RIG procedural success rate was 97.9%. The overall 30-day mortality rate was 7.8%; associated with pre-procedural haemoglobin <130 g/l in men (p=0.030, odds ratio [OR] 23.38), white cell count >11×109/l (p=0.001, OR 4.18), C-reactive protein >10 mg/l (p=0.003, OR 10.10) and international normalised ratio (INR) >1.2 (p=0.03, OR 4.63). Inpatient RIG referrals were associated with 10% 30-day mortality; compared to 1.1% for outpatients (p=0.028, OR 9.51). The incidence of immediate and delayed complications was 2.4% and 42.1%, respectively. Neuromuscular disease was associated with gastrostomy dislodgement (p=0.0001, OR 4.99) and fracture (p=0.0009, OR 13.45), cerebrovascular disease with gastrostomy dislodgement (p=0.009, OR 2.51), cardiovascular disease with sepsis 30-days post-RIG (p=0.02, OR 2.94), and diabetes mellitus with gastrostomy dislodgement (p=0.0001, OR 29.45), fracture (p=0.027, OR 5.63) and stoma site infections (p=0.0003, OR 7.16). CONCLUSION: RIG 30-day mortality was significantly associated with inpatient procedures compared to outpatient, and a range of biochemical/haematological parameters that suggest infection pre-intervention. It is advised that the markers of infection and catabolism are investigated pre-intervention, which may reduce mortality and complication rates.

AIM: To present the initial 12 months of data of a straight-to-test (STT) computed tomography colonography (CTC) protocol as the first-line investigation for change in bowel habit (CIBH) and iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) in patients over 60 referred directly from primary care. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 12 months, 1,792 STT CTC for IDA and CIBH were performed. No colonoscopies were performed as the primary investigation in this cohort. Data from this cohort were gathered prospectively. RESULTS: The colorectal cancer (CRC) detection rate was 4.9% and polyp detection rate was 13.5%. The CRC rate increased related to age (p=0.001), the CRC detection rate was 2.6% in patients aged 60-69 years, compared to 4.9%, 7.4%, and 11.4% in the 70-79, 80-89, and >90 years age groups. The CRC rate was higher in patients with IDA compared to CIBH (6.8% versus 3.9%, p=0.017). There were significantly more left-sided cancers (p=0.0165). Non-colonic cancers were found in 4.3% of patients and 6.8% had incidental findings that required further investigation and 11.9% had a new, potentially significant, incidental finding. CONCLUSION: These results are comparable to colonoscopy in terms of diagnostic accuracy and similar to those of CTC in published multicentre trials. This exciting model of care within radiology enables earlier testing, reduces waiting times, with fewer outpatient appointments, and results in good clinician and patient satisfaction.

AIM: Neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for locally advanced rectal cancer aims to downstage prior to definitive management. Repeat imaging assessment of the tumour post-therapy has implications for treatment. Our aim was to assess if the inferior mesenteric vein (IMV) diameter measured on CT can be used as a surrogate marker for evaluation of tumour response to neoadjuvant treatment. METHOD: IMV diameter was assessed in patients with and without locally advanced rectal cancer, pre- and post-radiotherapy, to ascertain if IMV diameter is a surrogate marker of tumour response. RESULTS: IMV diameter was 5.9 mm in patients with rectal cancer vs 4.7 mm in patients without (P = 0.0001). The baseline IMV diameter was significantly higher for cases with local lymphadenopathy [N0 5.2 mm vs N1/2 6 mm (P = 0.0059)] and extramural venous invasion (EMVI) [negative 5.4 mm vs positive 6.4 mm (P = 0.0001)]. Post-radiotherapy there was a significant decrease in the IMV diameter in cases with treatment response compared to non-responders: the percentage change in IMV diameter was a 17.54% decrease vs 1.39% increase (P = 0.0001). These results were reproduced on comparing between magnetic resonance tumour regression grades using ANOVA (P = 0.0001). There was also a significant decrease in IMV diameter when assessing lymph node (LN) and EMVI response vs non-responders (P = 0.0001 and 0.0001 respectively). CONCLUSION: Patients with rectal cancer have a dilated IMV compared with patients without rectal cancer. We confirm that IMV diameter is a potential surrogate marker of LN status and EMVI at baseline. IMV diameter is also a marker of tumour, LN and EMVI response to chemoradiotherapy.
