Key Words Rectal cancer; Neoadjuvant chemotherapy; Chemoradiation; Prognosis
Core Tip Neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (Neo-CRT) acts as standard treatment in locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC), however, it delays the administration of optimal chemotherapy and increases toxicity. We design the meta-analysis aimed to compare the feasibility and efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (Neo-CT) vs Neo-CRT for the treatment of LARC. The present study showed that Neo-CT was effective for the treatment of LARC, especially to lower the incidences of anastomotic fistula and temporary colostomy, and increase the sphincter preservation rate as compared to Neo-CRT, and could have the potential to provide an alternative to chemoradiotherapy for LARC.
