Anterior Resection

by Etienne Moore — last modified 2007-04-02 18:03

This is an operation where a diseased part of the left sided-colon and rectum is removed from an incision in the front of the abdomen and a join or anastomosis is made in the bowel.  A temporary stoma or ileostomy may be used to give the join a rest while it heals.
