Previous studies that have attempted to identify significant factors contributing to leakage of intestinal anastomoses used animal models or have analyzed retrospective data using univariate analysis. Our objective was to identify factors contributing to leakage of intestinal anastomoses. STUDY DESIGN We conducted a… CONTINUE READING
