For colorectal cancer patients, long-term survival is achievable only after complete resection of the disease. However, the decision to embark on a multi-visceral resection must be made after weighing the risks against the potential benefits. We retrospectively analyzed the demographics, tumor parameters, perioperative results, oncological outcomes and survival details of 35 patients who underwent multivisceral resection for colorectal carcinoma between 1996 and 2013. 'Multivisceral resection' was defined as the resection of at least one other organ in addition to cancer affected the colon. There were 19 males and 16 females who had a mean age of 52.7 ± 13.6 years. The most common primary site of the tumor was the rectum, followed by the sigmoid, the left, and the right colon. Most frequently resected additional organ was the pancreas followed by the uterus, small bowel, urinary bladder, ureter, vagina, spleen, duodenum, ovary, and liver. Postoperative histopathological examination confirmed tumor infiltration in the adjacent organs in 48.5%. The postoperative complication was developed in 21 (60%) patients. There was no surgery-related mortality. Ten patients had evidence of recurrence at last follow-up in June 2014. The 5-year survival rate was of 73.1% according to Kaplan-Meier survival analysis. Multivisceral resection for colorectal cancer is associated with a high morbidity rate, but the long-term survival is good.
