Brief Summary:

The anastomotic leaks are multivariable in its origin. The incidence varies among different centers between 4% and as high as 25%. The impact of leakage in a rectal anastomosis can be devastating for the patient and very costly for the health care system.

Prolonged hospital stay (LOS), invasive treatment and intensive care are the consequences.

The future of colorectal surgery will increasingly include older patients with increased preoperative morbidity and probably even higher risk for anastomotic leaks. which makes it suitable for reinforcing a rectal anastomosis. The goal is to shift the clinical leaks spectrum into a subclinical and therefore self-healing one.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Rectal Cancer Procedure: The rectal anastomosis will be reinforced with HemoPatch. Device: Hemopatch Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The rationale is to explore if the procedure of reinforcement with HemoPatch and bringing more mechanical strength over an extended area around the anastomosis thus lowers the incidence of clinical anastomotic leaks.

The characteristics of HemoPatch, with its structural properties such as flexibility and tissue adhesion are suitable for this purpose.

Estimated Enrollment : 10 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: RORA (Reinforcement of Rectal Anastomosis(<10cm) With HemoPatch - Pilot Study
Actual Study Start Date : February 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date : January 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Prospective pilot
Patient included prospectivly will be all treated according to study protocol.The rectal anastomosis will be reinforced with HemoPatch.
Procedure: The rectal anastomosis will be reinforced with HemoPatch.
Associated with the making of the anastomosis stapled or hand sewed, the device HemoPatch will be wrapped all the way around the anastomotic circumference.
Other Name: Hemopatch

Device: Hemopatch
The rectal anastomosis reinforced with Hemopatch

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evidence of clinical anastomotic leak( elevated C reactive protein and white blood corpuscles, fever, nausea). Suspicion of a leak will be investigated with a Ct scan. [ Time Frame: 10 days ]
