    Objective: The present study aimed to analyze the association between tumor makers and Peritoneal Dissemination (PD) detection in patients with Colorectal Cancer (CRC). Background: The eighth edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging system expanded the classification of the M category with the addition of M1c for PD due to its worse prognosis compared to other visceral organ metastases. The lack of specific symptoms and varying sensitivities of imaging studies leads to difficulty in PD detection. Methods: A total of 1,109 patients with CRC who underwent tumor resection between June 2000 and December 2017 were included in this retrospective study. Serum tumor markers, including Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA), Carbohydrate Antigen 19-9 (CA19-9), and CA125, were analyzed preoperatively. .. Read More»
