Abstract:
We read with interest the paper by Ivan CV et al (1) assessing the relationship between inferior mesenteric vein diameter and evidence of extra-mural invasion (EMVI) in rectal cancer. Recent literature has focused on the identification of EMVI on the pre-treatment MRI due to its presence being a major determinant and an important prognostic independent factor for risk stratification of local and distant recurrence [2, 3]. The authors have based their hypothesis and the rationale for using inferior mesenteric vein (IMV) measurement on the emerging evidence that suggested that a correlation existed between splanchnic venous circulation, colorectal cancer and EMVI [3] This article is protected by copyright.
