Early glutamine-enriched enteral feeding facilitates colonic anastomosis healing: light microscopic and immunohistochemical evaluation.

Abstract

Problems related to colonic anastomosis healing constitute the major morbidity in colorectal surgery. Patients without appropriate nutritional support are at higher risk of postsurgical complications, mainly due to reduced wound healing.
