BACKGROUND Laparoscopic rectal cancer surgery involving rectal division with intracorporeal stapling devices is technically difficult. This study aimed to identify risk factors for anastomotic leakage associated with laparoscopic anterior resection for rectal cancer. METHODS We studied 363 patients who underwent laparoscopic anterior resection with intracorporeal rectal transection and double-stapling technique (DST) anastomosis for rectal cancer between July 2005 and February 2010.
