Familial adenomatous polyposis, hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer, and familial risk: what are the implications for the surgeon?
Surg Oncol Clin N Am. 2000 Oct; 9(4):683-97; discussion 699-701.SO

Abstract

Recent advances in the understanding of the molecular biology of colorectal cancer have resulted in many new implications for surgeons. To continue providing sound patient care, surgeons must familiarize themselves with associated issues that include genetic counseling and its role in patient and family management. Issues related to genetic counseling are reviewed in this article. Recommendations for surgical therapy and surveillance methods are summarized for each of the hereditary syndromes. Failure to use these patient management tools in an effective way may be a source of future litigation.
