Transcript of "MCC 2011 - Slide 15"

  1. 1. Quality of life after rectal surgery Emmanuel Tiret Hôpital Saint-Antoine, AP-HP Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris VI
  2. 2. <ul><li>WHO </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An individual’s perception of their position in life in the context of the cultures and value systems in which they live and in relation to their goals, expectations, standarts and concerns. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is a broad ranging concept affected in a complex way by the persons’s physical health, psychological state, personal beliefs, social relationships and their relationship to salient features of their environment. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Wikipedia </li></ul><ul><ul><li>QoL is used in health care to refer to an individual’s emotional, social and physical well being, including their ability to function in the ordinary tasks of living </li></ul></ul>Definition of Quality of Life
  3. 3. Patient diagnosed with rectal cancer <ul><li>Mean age 67 years, male or female </li></ul><ul><li>Cancer </li></ul><ul><li>Rectal cancer (survival, recurrence) </li></ul><ul><li>Treatment and side effects (stoma, multimodal treatment) </li></ul><ul><li>Bowel dysfunction +++ </li></ul><ul><li>Sexual impairment ++ </li></ul>
  4. 4. Quality of life questionnaires Are they adapted to rectal cancer surgery? <ul><li>Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form 36-item questionnaire (MOS SF 36) </li></ul><ul><li>General health questionnaire </li></ul><ul><li>EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire Core-30 item (EORTC QLQ C-30) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Generic Cancer questionnaire </li></ul></ul><ul><li>EORTC Quality of life Questionnaire Colorectal 38-item Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-CR-38) </li></ul><ul><li> Colorectal cancer specific module </li></ul><ul><li>Other scores </li></ul><ul><li>No specific questionnaire for rectal cancer </li></ul>
  5. 5. Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form-36 item questionnaire MOS SF-36 General health questionnaire <ul><li>The SF-36 questionnaire is a generic measure of health that is used to measure quality of life. </li></ul><ul><li>The 36-item questionnaire accrues scores from eight distinct health domains: </li></ul><ul><li>Physical functioning assesses limitations to daily activities </li></ul><ul><li>Role-physical identifies limitations in work or activities caused by physical health </li></ul><ul><li>Bodily pain grades pain and limitations therefrom </li></ul><ul><li>General health examines health perception </li></ul><ul><li>Vitality comprises fatigue and energy scales </li></ul><ul><li>Social functioning assesses social limitations </li></ul><ul><li>Role-emotional identifies limitation in work or activities due to emotional health </li></ul><ul><li>Mental health grades feelings of anxiety and depression </li></ul><ul><li>These eight scores ranges from 0-100 , with a higher score indicating better health . </li></ul><ul><li>A difference of 5 points in a particular domain is considered a minimal clinically and socially relevant change, whereas a 10-point difference indicates moderate change. </li></ul><ul><li>The SF-36 has been shown to have very good internal consistency and correlates well with other quality of life instruments. </li></ul>

  31. 31.

  39. 39. <ul><li>It is not possible to draw conclusions whether the QoL measures of stoma patients are poorer than for non-stoma patients. However, the results challenge the assumption that people with stoma fare less well than non-stoma patients. </li></ul><ul><li>There is an additional need for exploring the influence of a wide variety of co-variables and their influence on patients’ QoL. </li></ul><ul><li>As one cannot expect that randomised trials will be performed in this field, we need large prospective cohort studies in which patients’ QoL measurements are recorded preoperatively and postoperatively. </li></ul>Quality of life APER vs Sphincter-saving procedures Pachler J, Wille J Ø rgensenP. Cochrane review 2010
  40. 40. Conclusion <ul><li>Lack of specific Score of Quality of Life for patients with rectal cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of a standardized tool to assess bowel function in rectal cancer patients. </li></ul><ul><li>Combining items into subscales can disguise or dilute major important difference in individual item. </li></ul><ul><li>At baseline, likely related to the presence of tumor, bowel function and quality of life are altered. </li></ul><ul><li>Patients adapt both physically and psychologically to their postoperative status, and perhaps physical well being which is generally improved is the main determinant of outcome. </li></ul><ul><li>Surgeons’ view is not representative of patients’ one. </li></ul>
