Summary of "Anastomotic leakage after colonic resection."

The aim of this study is to present the diagnosis and management of anastomotic leakage after colon resection. Early diagnosis and urgent therapeutic intervention are required in order to avert life-threatening conditions that may be caused by anastomotic leakage. Minor leaks can be managed conservatively with successful outcomes. Major leaks should be managed operatively. In conclusion, leakage of colonic anastomosis remains the most serious complication after colon resection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Breakdown of the connection and subsequent leakage of digestive system fluid from a SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of digestive system structures. Most common leakages are from breakdown of the sutured lines in gastrointestinal or bowel anastomosis.

Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.

Chronic or recurrent colonic disorders without an identifiable structural or biochemical explanation. The widely recognized IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME falls into this category.

A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of COLONIC DIVERTICULA in the COLON. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial, including colon aging, motor dysfunction, increases in intraluminal pressure, and lack of dietary fibers.

Functional obstruction of the COLON leading to MEGACOLON in the absence of obvious COLONIC DISEASES or mechanical obstruction. When this condition is acquired, acute, and coexisting with another medical condition (trauma, surgery, serious injuries or illness, or medication), it is called Ogilvie's syndrome.
