Safe Bowel Anastomosis in Minimal Invasive Surgery for Colorectal Cancer
The minimal invasive surgery for colorectal cancer is considered a safe procedure with evolutions of preoperative preparation, antibiotic prophylaxis, surgical technique, surgical devices, and postoperative management in the last decades. It should take notes in details of techniques performed, devices selected, and conditions of bowel where an anastomosis is made and new technology to facilitate making an anastomosis that may help to reduce the occurrence of anastomotic complications, such as bleeding, leakage and dehiscence, stenosis, and fistula which are harmful for patients and have negative impacts on surgical as well as oncological outcomes.
