Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph

Sphincter-preserving surgery for lower rectal cancer represents a major challenge. Although this treatment strategy is strongly required by patients for improved quality of life (QOL) it is associated with high risk of local recurrence and death. Applying newer surgical and oncological approaches, a sphincter-preserving approach could be performed. But how feasible and safe could be such a multimodal and multidisciplinary therapy consisted by preoperative (neoadjuvant) treatment for tumor shrinkage followed by laparoscopic surgery?
