Gut Microbiota, Anastomotic Leak and Colorectal Cancer

Official Title

Gut Microbiota, Anastomotic Leak and Colorectal Cancer

Summary:

This is a prospective correlational study evaluating the relation between the gut microbiota composition, intestinal healing after colorectal surgery and colorectal cancer behaviour. Our hypothesis is that the gut microbiota composition could predict poor intestinal healing in colorectal surgery, and that the gut microbiota might have an impact on colorectal cancer clinical behaviour and may predict disease outcomes.
