Abstract

Micro-AbstractA trimodal treatment approach for elderly patients with locally advanced rectal cancer remains a hotly debated topic. We investigated an intensified neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy regimen. The results were encouraging, with good treatment tolerance, low severe toxicity rates, and valid 5-year survival outcomes. Intensified neoadjuvant treatment could be proposed for elderly patients with locally advanced rectal cancer.
