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.

Anastomotic leakage following low anterior resection (LAR) for rectal cancer is a serious complication that increases morbidity and mortality rates. Transanal tube placement may reduce postoperative a...
Anastomotic leakage is one of the major complications occurring after anterior resection of rectum. A defunctioning stoma is usually created routinely or on surgeons' discretion. The aim of this study...
Endometriosis is a commonly encountered problem in women of reproductive age. It usually causes chronic abdominal pain. However, it rarely causes complications such as intestinal obstruction. The most...
A large prospectively collected clinical database was analysed to determine the various pre- and intraoperative factors affecting anastomotic leakage (AL) in colorectal surgery.
The aim of this study was to investigate whether metastatic colorectal cancer (Union for International Cancer Control stage IV disease) represents a risk factor for anastomotic leakage after colorecta...
Anastomotic leak (AL) is a breakdown of a suture line in a surgical anastomosis with a subsequent leakage of the luminal content. Anastomotic leakage occurs commonly in rectal and esophage...
The rate of anastomotic leakage after anterior resection for medium & low rectal cancer is still high. the transanal drainage tube (TDT) was thought to be useful for deduce the rate. There...
Postoperative anastomotic leakage is a serious complication in patients with oesophageal or cardia cancer. Early diagnosis and treatment are mandatory. The primary aim of the present study...
Anastomotic leakage is still to be a major cause of considerable morbidity and mortality after esophagectomy and gastric pull up for esophageal carcinoma. Risk factor analyses of anastomot...
Anastomotic leakage is a serious complication after LAR with high morbidity and mortality rates. Early diagnosis and treatment is mandatory. The primary aim of the present study is to inve...
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.
