Brief Summary:

Purpose:

Evaluation of the CAR™ 27 for the creation of compression anastomoses.

Indication:

Compression Anastomosis Ring (CAR™ 27) device for creation of circular anastomoses during colonic or colorectal resection.

Study Design:

Prospective, open labeled study.

Patient Population:

Male or female subjects 18 years of age or older who are scheduled for non emergency laparoscopic or open colonic or colorectal resections. A temporary loop ileostomy/colostomy can be preformed up to the discretion of the surgeon.

No. of Subjects:

15 patients estimated up to three months to enroll.

Duration of Treatment:

During the operation - creation of the anastomosis.

Duration of Follow-up:

Follow-up evaluation will be performed daily while hospitalized, during a post-op clinic visit at approximately 1 month (30 days ± 5 days) including a proctoscopic exam and by phone after 3 months.

Endpoints:

To evaluate the creation of a safe and functioning anastomosis and the occurrence of adverse events related to the use of the CAR™ 27 device.
