Abstract [en]

Quality in the surgical treatment of rectal cancer can be divided in two main parts. One is the quality of the excised specimen, where data do indicate that a completely excised rectal cancer specimen (total mesorectal excision) is the cornerstone for a successful outcome. This can be evaluated by the pathologist. The other part is the overall care according to guidelines including staging, type of surgery, complications to treatment, use of chemo- and radiotherapy, long-term results, etc., which can be audit in quality registries.
