Surgical implications of colorectal cancer genetics.
Surg Oncol Clin N Am. 2006 Jan; 15(1):51-66, vi.SO

Abstract

The applications of genetics in colorectal cancer are not limited to identifying germ-line mutations in genetically predisposed individuals. Reports on the use of molecular genetic markers as prognostic factors and for assessing the response to therapy are common in the literature. As the primary caregiver in the majority of these cases, the surgeon needs a basic knowledge of colorectal genetics and their implications to the patient and the patient's family. This article discusses a practical approach for some of the issues likely to be encountered by the surgeon.
