Publications of the last few years indicate a steady rise of colorectal cancer in the world. Colorectal cancer is on the second place in the structure of oncological mortality in developed countries, including Russia. The majority of colorectal cancer deaths (up to 50%) occur in elderly. The octogenarians are more likely to have comorbidities and age-specific deteriorating organ function, which could make their tolerance of surgery. To determine the short- and long-term outcomes of the multidisciplinary approach in elective colorectal surgery in patients =75 years of age. A review 70 octogerians who underwent colorectal cancer surgery between April 2006 and November 2010 was performed from prospectively collected database. The median age was 79 (75-95) years. Every patient was examined by multidisciplinary team before surgery. Conservative therapy was prescribed or corrected if any organ failure detected. After the period of treatment decision on their suitability for surgery was made. Comorbidities were quantified using the weighted Charlson Comorbidity Index and ASA classification. CR-POSSUM scores and the predicted mortality rates were calculated. Outcome measures were morbidity rates and 30-day mortality rates. The mean index of comorbidity was 7.3 (6-11) and 81% of patients were classified ASA III and above. The mean predicted mortality rate based on CR-POSSUM scoring model was 14.8%. All patients with comorbidities were treated conservatively during mean period of 12.2 days, nine patients (13%) required implantations of pacemakers to control heart rate in perioperative period. In 64 (91%) cases surgical resection of the colon or rectum with primary anastomosis were performed, in 6 (9%) - abdominoperineal resection of the rectum and in two cases - Hartmann's operation. Postoperative complications were noticed in 40 (57%) cases. Postoperative mortality rate (death within 30 days of surgery) was 5.7%, the 2- and 3-year overall survival rate according to Kaplan and Meier was 78.3±5.6% and 74.9±6.3% respectively. Using the multidisciplinary approach in the management of elderly allows reaching the acceptable mortality level (5.7% in comparison with predicted 14.8%) and high 2- and 3-year survival rates. This means that chronological age alone should not be contraindication to the elective curative surgery of colorectal cancer in elderly if overall assessment of the perioperative risk is possible. The study aimed to asses the intermediate and long-term results of the multidisciplinathe colorectal cancer in elderly patients. 70 patients, aged 75-95 years, were prospectively chosen to participate the study. The comorbidity Charlson index and ASA scale were used to measure the perioperative risks. The CR-POSSUM scale was used for postoperative lethality rating. The use of the above listed scales and measurements in combination with multidisciplinary conservative preaparation of patients before the operation allowed to achieve the satisfactory lethality rate of 5.7% and higher long-term survival rates after the colorectal surgery.
