Procedure: Colonic reservoir
Phase 2
Phase 3

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Prospective Randomized Study of Two Techniques of Rectal Reservoir in Low Anterior Resection of Rectum

Further study details as provided by Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of life [ Time Frame: five years ]
    Functional results and quality of life after coloanal anastomosis with colonic reservoir

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Morbidity and cost-effectiveness [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Investigate if the new technique is more easily, quickly and cheap.
