Abstract

Complications after surgery for colorectal cancer are common in emergency departments. Multidetector computed tomography plays a fundamental role in the follow-up of patients after surgery, because it enables the detection of relapse and complications. Radiologists need to be familiar with different surgical techniques and the normal postsurgical changes so that we can differentiate them from potential complications and relapse.

This article reviews the multidetector computed tomography findings that can be considered normal after surgical intervention for colorectal cancer as well as the most common early complications seen in postsurgical colorectal cancer patients presenting at emergency departments.

Keywords:
Colorectal surgery
Multidetector computed tomography
Postoperative complications
Resumen

Las complicaciones posquirúrgicas del cáncer colorrectal son frecuentes en los servicios de urgencias. La tomografía computarizada multidetector tiene un papel fundamental en el seguimiento de los pacientes operados, ya que hace posible el reconocimiento de complicaciones y recidiva. Es importante que el radiólogo esté familiarizado con las diferentes técnicas quirúrgicas y los cambios postoperatorios normales, con objeto de diferenciarlas de potenciales complicaciones y recidivas.

El objetivo de este trabajo es revisar los hallazgos en tomografía computarizada multidetector que pueden considerarse normales tras la intervención quirúrgica, y hacer una revisión de las complicaciones tempranas que con mayor frecuencia encontramos en los servicios de urgencias.
