Ileostomy creation is associated with excess readmissions following colorectal surgery. This study identifies risk factors for readmission in patients undergoing ileostomy creation and identifies areas of clinical intervention to reduce readmission.

Surgical site infection (SSI) is a common complication after colon surgery. This study aimed to evaluate risk factors for SSI and its types in laparoscopic colectomy patients using the American Colleg...
An ileostomy is usually created to avert systemic sepsis in a patient with a tenuous anastomosis. However, what is often not reported are the numerous issues facing these patients subsequently, rangin...
Hospital readmissions are costly to healthcare systems and represent a measure of quality care. Cancer patients with malignant pleural effusions (MPE) are at high risk for rehospitalization, yet risk ...
There are several reports on the usefulness of diverting ileostomy for decreasing the incidence of anastomotic leakage and the severity of pelvic peritonitis. However, a number of complications induce...
Readmissions cost an estimated $41 billion in the United States each year. To address this, a single institution recently developed a new risk model predictive of 30-day readmission following adult ca...
In this study 100 patients due to undergo surgery that will result in an ostomy will be provided with the Alfred SmartBag system. The system encompasses a pouch, a baseplate that can track...
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...
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...
The purpose of this study is to use routinely-collected health data from registers to examine the incidence of parastomal bulging (PB) at different time points in the first year after surg...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and feasibility of ileostomy closure performed in a 23 hours hospitalization setting, using a multi-center, open-label, randomized control...
Surgical creation of an external opening into the ILEUM for fecal diversion or drainage. This replacement for the RECTUM is usually created in patients with severe INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASES. Loop (continent) or tube (incontinent) procedures are most often employed.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
Loss of vascular ELASTICITY due to factors such as AGING; and ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Increased arterial stiffness is one of the RISK FACTORS for many CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.
The creation of embryos specifically for research purposes.
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...
