Taking up for colon surgery with CAD TVD would be very risky. Depending on the location of tumour, management can be decided. If it is rectal cancer, then you can give neoadjuvant radiation which will control the bleeding, then plan for cardiac surgery followed by LAR surgery for rectal cancer. However if it is colon cancer, then it is difficult. You can consult any interventional radiologist to see if any Embolisation procedure can be planned for controlling the bleeding.
