Research focus


To develop and promote research in the field of colon, rectum and anus surgery, from its most basic to clinical aspects, in order to improve both the knowledge of the disease and the quality of care.


Sub-lines:


1. Colorectal cancer: 1. Reconstruction of the intestinal tract after rectal surgery; 2. Prognostic factors of disease-free survival and cancer-related mortality in colon cancer: 3. Suture dehiscence; predictive models of morbidity and mortality; 4. Postoperative pelvic sepsis and local recurrence in rectal cancer; 5. Morbidity and mortality in laparoscopic surgery; 6. Mesorectal excision in the treatment of rectal cancer.


2. Robotic colorectal surgery: 1. Applicability and safety of robotic surgery in colorectal diseases; 2. Application of new techniques in the pathology of the pelvic floor.


3. TEM (Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery): Role of TEM in the treatment of early rectal cancer.


4. Perioperative management: 1. Antibiotic prophylaxis for surgical site infection in colorectal cancer surgery; 2. Recovery of gastrointestinal motility after surgery.


5. Anal fissure: Role of botulinum toxin and HCL Diltiazem in the treatment of acute anal fissure.


6. Anal fistula: Application of platelet growth factors in the treatment of anal fistula.


7. Diverticular disease: 1. Outpatient treatment of mild acute diverticulitis; 2. Role of prophylactic treatment of diverticulitis, and response prognostic factors.


8. Inflammatory Bowel Disease: 1. Prognostic factors of response to treatment in patients undergoing surgery for inflammatory bowel disease. 2. The cell as the central axis of the dendritic response to bacteria in the mucosa of patients with inflammatory bowel disease.

This pathology, common among patients who have undergone rectal resection due to cancer, causes alterations in bowel function with great impact on quality of life.

The research has received funding from the Spanish Society of Obesity Surgery and the Spanish Association of Surgeons.

The project has led to the development of a visual algorithm, so it can be used as a guide by patients and healthcare professionals.
