Abstract

Worldwide, "centers of excellence" in rectal cancer surgery report high rates of anal sphincter-sparing surgery (70-90 percent) after proctectomy. The rate of sphincter-sparing surgery with reestablishment of intestinal continuity in the general population of the United Stares is unknown.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 17 August 2007.
All research outputs
#2,015,532
of 3,630,565 outputs
Outputs from Diseases of the Colon & Rectum
#789
of 1,343 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#22,041
of 51,732 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diseases of the Colon & Rectum
#11
of 17 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,630,565 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,343 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one is in the 9th percentile – i.e., 9% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 51,732 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 17 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
