Deep endometriosis may simultaneously infiltrate the vagina and the rectosigmoid, which associated resection may increase the risk of postoperative complications. Among these complications, rectovaginal fistula is one of the worst. To reduce the risk of rectovaginal fistula and related complications, surgeons may employ diverting stoma. The literature is rich in data concerning the usefulness of stoma in patients managed for low rectal cancer. However, extrapolation of these data to patients managed for rectal endometriosis is disputable. For this reason, there are no guidelines on the role of stoma in preventing rectovaginal fistula in patients managed for colorectal endometriosis. The objective of our study was to assess the risk of complications related to the use of stoma in patients managed for colorectal endometriosis.

Using robotic surgery, we report successful resection of deep invasive pelvic endometriosis with a multidisciplinary team of colorectal and gynecologic surgeons.
Surgery for the treatment of ulcerative colitis (UC) can be performed in one-, two-, or three-stage procedures . The more traditional approach is a total proctocolectomy and creation of an ileo pou...
The importance of the defunctioning stoma on minimizing anastomotic leak in colorectal surgery is well established. However, a defunctioning stoma can substantially impact on quality of life (QoL). Ci...
All operative procedures for simple or complicated diverticulitis, including primary resection and anastomosis (PRA) with or without a diverting stoma, Hartmann procedure (HP), or stoma reversal, whet...
Association Between Use of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Protocol and Postoperative Complications in Colorectal Surgery: The Postoperative Outcomes Within Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Protocol (POWER) Study.
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) care has been reported to be associated with improvements in outcomes after colorectal surgery compared with traditional care.
Diverting ileostomies are created to protect a rectal anastomosis or in situations with a risk of intestinal perforation. Currently, the application of a rod to hinder slippage of the loop...
This study aim to assess long-term results of an incisional hernia-prophylactic mesh placement during stoma reversal after total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer
The ENDOFERT Study is an open, multicenter, randomized, parallel-group, controlled trial. This study includes patients presenting colorectal DIE and infertility. Patients will be randomize...
Defunctioning ileostomy has demonstrated its benefits (rate and seriousness of anastomotic leakage) in cancer for low colorectal and coloanal anastomoses, whereas there are no such good qu...
Study hypothesis: equivalency of laparoscopic compared to laparotomic colorectal resection for endometriosis on digestive, gynaecologic, general symptoms and quality of life. Morbidity and...
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).
A surgical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and abnormalities of the colon, rectum, and anal canal.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
