Brief Summary:

Kono and collegues have described a new anastomotic technique to restore bowel contintuity after ileocecal resection for Crohn's disease (CD).

This tecnique implies a hand-sewn ileocolic anastomosis, that involves exclusively the antimesenteric side of the bowel and that functionally acts as an end-to-end anastomosis.

In a retrospective study, the authors have shown that this anastomotic tecnique, when compared to stapled side-to-side anastomosis, significantly reduces the severity of endoscopic recurrence at 1 year after surgery and the rate of reoperation for anastomotic recurrence at 5 years after surgery.

Aim of this trial is to compare the outcomes of the Kono anastomosis with the ones achieved by the stapled side-to-side anastomosis, within a prospective randomized study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Grade of endoscopic recurrence [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    Severity of endoscopic recurrence (graded according to Rutgeerts' score) at the site of anastomosis at 6 months after surgery.

  2. Surgical recurrence [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Rate of patients requiring resection for anastomotic recurrence within 5 years after surgery

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Endoscopic recurrence [ Time Frame: 6 months up to 5 years ]
    Presence of endoscopic recurrence

  2. Grade of endoscopic recurrence [ Time Frame: 6 months up to 5 years ]
    Severity of endoscopic recurrence at the site of anastomosis

  3. Clinical recurrence [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Presence of clinical recurrence (according to Crohn's disease activity index)

  4. Operating time [ Time Frame: Intraoperatively ]
    Duration of the operation (min)

  5. Anastomosis time [ Time Frame: Intraoperatively ]
    Time (min) required to perform the anastomosis

  6. Anastomotic leak [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days ]
    Incidence of anastomotic leak

  7. Surgical re-intervention [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days ]
    Rate of patients requiring surgical re-intervention

  8. Postoperative morbidity rate [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days ]
    Postoperative surgical (bleeding, obstruction, postoperative ileus, abdominal collection, wound infection) and medical morbidity as well as mortality will be documented and graded according to the Dindo Clavien classification

  9. Recovery times [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 5 days ]
    Length of post-operative hospital stay, time to first flatus, time to first defecation, time to tolerance of liquid and solid diet will be documented
