BACKGROUND Ischemia occurring on mobilization and mesenteric division is thought to be a major factor in the etiology of anastomotic dehiscence after colorectal resection. This study assessed the ability of the new technique of scanning laser Doppler flowmetry to measure changes in human colonic perfusion during mobilization at and adjacent to the… CONTINUE READING
