Protection of stapled colorectal anastomoses with a biodegradable device: the C-Seal feasibility study.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: A colorectal anastomotic leak can be life-threatening. We have assessed the feasibility of a new intraluminal biodegradable bypass device that we designed to avoid anastomotic leakage and the necessity of a temporary stoma. METHODS: Fifteen patients underwent colorectal surgery.
