Evaluation of the CAR™ 27 for the creation of compression anastomoses.
Compression Anastomosis Ring (CAR™ 27) device for creation of circular anastomoses during colonic or colorectal resection.
Prospective, open labeled study.
Male or female subjects 18 years of age or older who are scheduled for non emergency laparoscopic or open colonic or colorectal resections. A temporary loop ileostomy/colostomy can be preformed up to the discretion of the surgeon.
