Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Surgical Prevention of Anastomotic Recurrence by Excluding Mesentery in Crohn's Disease
Official Title  ICMJE A New Anastomotic Technique After Ileocecal Resection for Crohn's Disease. Kono-s Anastomosis vs Stapled Side-to-side Anastomosis: a Randomized Controlled Trial
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.
