Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Andrea Vignali, Scientific Institute San Raffaele
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01453556
First received: October 13, 2011
Last updated: October 20, 2011
Last verified: October 2011
  Purpose
Verify with a prospective randomised trial if intracorporeal mechanical anastomosis in laparoscopic right colectomy reduces post-operative bowel canalisation time and length of stay in comparison with extracorporeal mechanical anastomosis.

Condition Intervention
Neoplastic or Benign Disease of Right Colon Elective Laparoscopic Surgery Procedure: Laparoscopic right colectomy

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Intracorporeal Versus Extracorporeal Mechanical Anastomosis in Laparoscopic Right Colectomy. A Prospective Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial

Further study details as provided by Andrea Vignali, Scientific Institute San Raffaele:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Post-operative canalisation time and length of stay [ Time Frame: Post-operative stay (about 7 days) ]
    Comparison of post-operative bowel movement time (fist flastus and first dejection) and overall length of stay between the two study groups


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Impact of post-operative ileum and complications. Valuation of global costs [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Comparison of post-operative short and long-term complications (in particular post-operative ileum) between the two study groups. Valuation of global costs differences.


Estimated Enrollment: 158
Study Start Date: October 2011

Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
