  Purpose
We conducted a prospective randomized study to evaluate the results of early closure of temporary loop ileostomy at eight days in comparison with late closure at two months, after elective rectal resection with low pelvic anastomoses.

Condition Intervention
Ileostomy Procedure: ileostomy

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Study of Early Closure of Temporary Loop Ileostomy After Elective Rectal Resection With Low Pelvic Anastomoses

Further study details as provided by Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • mortality and morbidity rates at three months - The primary end point was the rate of patients with at least one postoperative complications occurring during the first 90 days after the first initial procedure or dying postoperatively

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • functional results were assessed at 3 and 12 months after the first operation - Quality of life was measured using the Gastrointestinal Quality of Life Index (GICLI)

Estimated Enrollment: 270
Study Start Date: May 2001
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2005
Detailed Description:
The aim of this multicentric prospective randomized study is to compare for patients requiring rectal resection followed by under Douglassienne anastomosis (low colorectal, coloanal, ileoanal) protected by ileostomy, two strategies about delay of ileostomy closing : delayed closing of ileostomy when second hospitalization two months later (classical attitude) ; precocious closing of ileostomy during the same hospitalization (at Day 8 of first operation). All patients aged 18 years or older with disease (carcinoma, inflammatory bowel disease, benign disease) requiring colorectal or rectal resection with low pelvic anastomoses (LPA) (ie low colorectal, coloanal, or ileoanal procedures) were eligible to participate in the study. A water-soluble contrast enema examination through temporary loop ileostomy was performed at day 7. If there were no radiologic signs of contrast leakage, patients were allotted to the group of early closure (EC) or to the group of late closure (LC). The primary end point was the rate of either postoperative death or postoperative complications occurring at 90 days after the first initial procedure.Postoperative complications will be considered present for a patient if one of the following elements is observed during the study : post operative death, anastomotic fistula, postoperative peritonitis ; serious event requiring hospitalization : prolapsus or peristomial eventration, erosive peristomial dermitis, serious wall sepsis, dehydration with hydroelectrolytic disorders, occlusive syndrome.
