An innovative approach to colorectal cancer treatment
In the last decade, colorectal cancer has become an alarmingly widespread type of cancer. Despite the significant improvements regarding its surgical treatment, many issues connected with mortality, recovery, recurrence rates and complications remain. The EU-funded CTI project is introducing a catheter for transcaecal ileostomy, an alternative technique to loop ileostomy to defunction low rectal anastomoses. The innovative solution makes the treatment of colorectal cancer patients safer, more efficient and effective as it decreases morbidity and mortality rates, diminishes hospital stay and "worried well" period and reduces operating time and faecal leakage.
