The summer of 2002 has seen the introduction of two new key words in the literature on rectal carcinoma. The words are TME Workshop. Papers attesting to a major impact on rectal cancer outcomes in Norway , Sweden, and Holland, are the background to two major papers in the August British Journal of Surgery, one from Ireland and one from Sweden plus a leading article from a professor in Singapore entitled "Adjuvant therapy for rectal cancer cannot be based on the results of other surgeons".
