If there is still no tumor then three levels should be cut on each block. If there is still no tumor then the case should be reported as a complete response. Since the efficacy of chemoradiotherapy regimens is frequently judged on complete response it is essential that such assessments are standardized across all trials. It is also possible to grade the degree of regression of tumor after neoadjuvant therapy. The results from the preoperative radiochemotherapy vs postoperative radiochemotherapy study [34] support the use of regression grading.

We are still awaiting the CR07 and CLASICC results, but a small study was performed within the Dutch trial. This showed that an involved CRM had the greatest effect but resections where the CRM reached down onto the muscularis propria had a higher rate of local recurrence and a poorer survival than resections where this did not happen [20]. So-called incomplete resections (muscularis propria plane) also had a CRM much closer to the tumor and a higher rate of CRM involvement. Other features to note when describing the mesorectum are the anatomical variation between individuals.

It was also adopted into the Dutch mesorectal excision and short-course radiotherapy study [20]. This classification described the smoothness and bulk of the mesorectum and divided them into three groups. Subsequently, it was decided that the best way of describing the surgery was by the plane of the surgical dissection. Mesorectal fascial plane. The mesorectum should be smooth with no violation of the fat, good bulk to the mesorectum anteriorly and posteriorly, and the distal margin should appear adequate with no coning near the tumor.
