  • Background and aimsClinical anastomotic leakage remains a major problem after anterior or low anterior resection for rectal cancer. The aim of this study was to assess the association between risk factors and anastomotic leakage and postoperative mortality.Materials and methodsTwo hundred seventy-six elective anterior or low anterior resections with anastomosis were performed and documented on-line from January 1995 to December 2004. Univariate and multivariate analyses with Bonferroni… CONTINUE READING
