BACKGROUND: The impact of blood supply to the anastomosis on development of anastomotic leakage is still a matter of debate. Considering that bowel perfusion may be affected by manipulation during surgery, perfusion assessment of the anastomosis alone may be of limited value. We propose perfusion assessment at different time points during surgery to explore the dynamics of bowel perfusion during colorectal resection and its impact on outcome. METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, patients undergoing elective colorectal resection were eligible...

Purpose: To investigate if fluorescein fluorescent test can predict dehiscence in a model of ischemic colonic anastomosis in rats. Methods: This experimental controlled trial randomly assigned 55 rats to four groups. Anastomoses were performed in non-ischemic colon segments (control group) and in ischemic colon segments measuring 1, 2 or 3 cm long (groups 1, 2 and 3, respectively). Fluorescein was injected and the tissues were examined under ultraviolet light. Seven days later, a second-look surgery was performed to check for the presence or absence of anastomosis dehiscence...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leak after colorectal surgery increases postoperative mortality, cancer recurrence, permanent stoma formation, and poor bowel function. Anastomosis between the colon and rectum is a particularly high risk. Traditional management mandates laparotomy, disassembly of the anastomosis, and formation of an often-permanent stoma. After laparoscopic colorectal surgery it may be possible to manage anastomotic failure with laparoscopy, thus avoiding laparotomy. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of the laparoscopic management of failed low colorectal anastomoses...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leakage following colorectal resection remains one of the most significant complications with relevant morbidity and mortality. There is evidence that a higher number of stapler firings for rectal division can affect the leak rate in double stapling anastomosis. However, there are no data concerning compression anastomosis. We present our institutional experience addressing this issue. DESIGN: This is a retrospective review of a prospective institutional database of patients undergoing colonic and rectal resection for benign and malignant indications between January 2008 and December 2014 at the surgical department of the St...

BACKGROUND: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used analgesic and anti-inflammatory adjuncts. NSAID administration may potentially increase the risk of postoperative gastrointestinal anastomotic failure (AF). We aim to determine if perioperative NSAID utilization influences gastrointestinal anastomotic failure in emergency general surgery (EGS) patients undergoing gastrointestinal resection and anastomosis. METHODS: Post hoc analysis of a multi-institutional prospectively collected database was performed...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal replacement (ER) surgery has been widely used in long-gap esophageal atresia (LGEA) over the past few decades. The most commonly used surgical approaches in many pediatric surgical centers include colon interposition (CI), gastric pull-up (GPU), jejunal interposition (JI), and gastric tube reconstruction (GTR). However, there is no systematic evidence on which is the optimal conduit for the native esophagus. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the short- and long-term outcomes among these 4 replacement approaches in LGEA cases based on current evidence...

J K Banerjee, R Saranga Bharathi
Corrosive upper aerodigestive tract strictures are conventionally treated by open surgery. Surgical advancements permit these strictures to be addressed with minimal invasion. Corrosive strictures treated minimally invasively over a 2-year period (2014-2015) were audited. Colonic mobilization and retrosternal tunneling were performed laparoscopically. The left colic vessel-based isoperistaltic colonic/ileocolonic segment was transposed substernally into the neck, aided by miniceliotomy. Proximal anastomosis was side-to-side esophagocolic in all patients except those who underwent pharyngolaryngectomy or partial laryngectomy, where pharyngocolic/pyriform fossa-ileal anastomosis was employed...

REVIEW
Ju Yong Cheong, Anil Keshava
Traumatic colorectal injuries are common during times of military conflict, and major improvements in their care have arisen in such periods. Since World War II, many classification systems for colorectal trauma have been proposed, including (i) Flint Grading System; (ii) Penetrating Abdominal Trauma Index; (iii) Colonic/Rectal Injury Scale; and (iv) destructive/non-destructive colonic injuries. The primary goal of these classifications was to aid surgical management and, more particularly, to determine whether a primary repair or faecal diversion should be performed...
