PURPOSE: Defunctioning ileostomies reduce the consequences of distal anastomotic leakage following bowel resections. Ileostomy reversal in itself, however, is associated with appreciable morbidity (3-40%) and mortality (0-4%). Despite being a common teaching procedure, there is limited information on the impact of surgical proficiency levels on postoperative outcome. METHODS: Adult patients undergoing closure of a defunctioning ileostomy between September 2008 and January 2017 were identified from a surgical administrative database that was collected prospectively (n = 558)...

PURPOSE: The timing of J-pouch surgery following colectomy for children with very early-onset colitis is controversial, with some advocating early reconstruction and others delaying reconstruction because of fear that the colitis may be owing to Crohn's disease (CD). We sought to determine the long-term incidence of CD in this population and whether there may be clinical features that predict the risk of CD. METHODS: Children with noninfectious colitis diagnosed prior to age 10, who underwent subtotal colectomy and ileostomy from 2000 to 2015, were reviewed...

PURPOSE: The incidence of incisional hernia (IH) at ileostomy closure site has not been sufficiently evaluated. Temporary loop ileostomy is routinely used in patients after low anterior resection for rectal cancer. The goal of this study was to compare the IH rates of standard suture skin closure and purse-string skin closure techniques. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients undergoing ileostomy reversal and follow-up CT scan at the University Hospital Frankfurt between January 2009 and December 2015 were retrospectively analyzed regarding IH and associated risk factors...

BACKGROUND: Individual trials comparing hand-sewn with stapled closure of loop ileostomy show different outcomes due to lack of statistical power. A systematic review, with a pooled analysis of results, might provide a more definitive answer. This review aimed to compare hand-sewn with stapled anastomotic technique for closure of a loop ileostomy and looked at the effect of bowel resection on the complication rates. METHODOLOGY: Relevant studies were identified from MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Cochrane database...

BACKGROUND: The umbilicus, an embryological natural orifice, is increasingly used as the only access route during single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) for colorectal disease. As a part of some of these procedures, a temporary, diverting ostomy could be exteriorized through the umbilicus itself. Theoretical advantages include better preservation of the abdominal wall and potentially superior cosmetic results. The aim of the present study was to evaluate our preliminary experience in SILS colorectal resection with umbilical stoma (u-stoma)...

PURPOSE: To identify factors associated with timing of stoma reversal after rectal cancer surgery in a large Swedish register-based cohort. METHODS: Three thousand five hundred sixty-four patients with rectal cancer who received a protective stoma during surgery in 2007-2013 were identified in the Swedish colorectal cancer register. Time to stoma reversal was evaluated over a follow-up period of one and a half years. Factors associated with timing of stoma reversal were analysed using Cox regression analysis...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leak after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) could lead to poor functional results and failure of the pouch. The aim of the present study was to analyze the outcomes of the vacuum-assisted closure therapy as the unique treatment for anastomotic leaks following IPAA without any additional surgical operations. METHODS: Consecutive patients with anastomotic leak after IPAA treated at our institution between March 2016 and March 2017 were prospectively enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Ileostomy construction is a common procedure but can be associated with morbidity. The stoma is commonly secured to the skin using transcutaneous sutures. It is hypothesized that intracutaneous sutures result in a tighter adherence of the peristomal skin to the stoma plate to prevent faecal leakage. The study aimed to compare the effect of intracutaneous versus transcutaneous suturing of ileostomies on faecal leakage and quality of life. METHODS: This randomized trial was undertaken in 11 hospitals in the Netherlands...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Early postoperative small bowel obstruction (EPSBO) prolongs hospital stays after surgery. This study aimed to evaluate the risk factors for EPSBO associated with colorectal cancer resection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively compared the clinical variables of patients with EPSBO (n=37) and those without (n=812) after primary tumor resection for colorectal cancer at our hospital between January 2010 and December 2015. RESULTS: In multivariate analysis, significant differences between the two groups was found in male sex, open surgery, and defunctioning ileostomy (DI) placement (p=0...

BACKGROUND:  Modified multivisceral transplantation (MMVTx) refers to the use of a graft that includes all abdominal organs except the liver. The use of this type of transplant in children and adults expanded over the last years with good results. However, long-term survival in experimental models has not been reported. Our aim is to describe in detail some technical modifications of MMVTx to obtain long-term survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  Syngeneic (Lewis-Lewis) heterotopic MMVTx was performed in 16 male rats (180-250 g)...
