Purpose To determine whether the biological age of the patient and ASA score are discriminatory for a radical surgical approach in colo-rectal cancer. Materials and methods Monocentric and mono-surgeon case record about 135 patients undergoing surgery for CRC between June 2004 and April 2008. Patients were divided into two groups (see Table 1 ): (A: <70 years, n = 44, 27 and ǩ = Ǩ = 17; B:>= 70 years, n = 91, ǩ and Ǩ = 49 = 42) comparing clinical, surgical and pathological data. We examined and
more &raquo; ... compared range of age and average age, ASA score, the average time of hospitalization, the postoperative complications (major and minor), mortality at 30 days and during the follow-up (in progress). Results The average age of group A is 59.6 years (range 41-69); for Group B it is 78.6 years (range 70-96). Oncological radicality was achieved in 41 (93%) and 76 (83%) patients respectively in groups A and B; ASA score was distributed in this way in Group A: I = 2, II = 40, III = 2 and IV = 1, so in Group B: I = 1, II = 23, III and IV = 54 = 13. The average time of hospitalization was of 11.7 days (range 4-24 days) in Group A and 10.16 days (range 1-29 days) in Group B.
