Evaluation of C- reactive protein as an early predictor of septic complications after elective colorectal Surgery
Introduction: Intestinal resection and anastomosis is still by far the most common alimentary tract surgery done by the present day general surgeons. Resection done for various pathological causes, require an anastomosis method for the restoration of continuity of the intestine. This is associated with varied degree of morbidity and mortality. The breakdown of the suture line may result in peritonitis, fecal fistula formation and other fatal septic complications. rnSafety in the gastrointestinal surgery may thus depend to a great extent on the factors that influence the healing of anastomosis, technical expertise of the operating surgeon in performing anastomosis and the type of anastomosis. However, with adequate supervision, there is little difference between the outcomes of anastomosis performed by trainees and those performed by established surgeons.
