High-Risk Ileocolic Anastomoses for Crohn’s Disease: When Is Diversion Indicated?

High-Risk Ileocolic Anastomoses for Crohn’s Disease: When Is Diversion Indicated? J Crohns Colitis. 2019 Apr 24;: Authors: Neary PM, Aiello AC, Stocchi L, Shawki S, Hull T, Steele SR, Delaney CP, Holubar SD Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Patients with Crohn’s disease undergoing ileocolectomy and primary anastomosis are often at increased risk of anastomotic leak. We aimed to determine whether diverting ileostomy was protective against anastomotic leak after ileocolic resection for Crohn’s disease using a large international registry. METHODS: We analysed the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Colectomy Module from 2012…
