Abstract

The T3-stage of the TNM classification includes over 60% of all rectal tumours and encompasses the greatest variance in cancer specific end points than any other T stage. Despite this the Union Internationale Contre le Cancer (UICC) and the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) classifications do not divide T3 tumours into subgroups which reflect cancer specific outcome more sensitively. A review of the literature was undertaken to assess the influence of the degree of extramural extent of T3 rectal cancer on local recurrence and survival.
