  1. 1. Rectal cancer surgery : Defunctioning stoma, anastomotic leakage and postoperative monitoring

    Author : Peter Matthiessen; Olof Hallböök; Rune Sjödahl; Lars Påhlman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anterior resection of the rectum; total mesorectal excision; TME; anastomotic leakage; defunctioning stoma; risk factors; intraoperative adverse events; population based study; postoperative monitoring; CT-scan microdialysis; cytokines; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : The understanding of the mesorectal spread in rectal cancer has lead to wide acceptance of total mesorectal excision (TME) as the surgical technique of choice for carcinoma in the lower and mid rectum. While oncological results and survival have improved with TME-surgery, morbidity and mortality remain important issues. READ MORE
