BACKGROUND Anastomotic leakage in operations for colorectal cancer not only results in morbidity and mortality, but also increases the risk of local recurrence and worsens prognosis. So a better understanding of risk factors for developing anastomotic leakage in colorectal cancer surgery is important to surgeons. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence and risk factors for clinical anastomotic leakage after elective surgery for colorectal cancer. STUDY DESIGN We conducted… CONTINUE READING
