Abstract: Anastomotic leakage (AL) after total mesorectal excision is a major adverse event. Construction of a defunctioning stoma (DS) reduces the morbidity of AL. This study aims to illustrate the AL rate and its related morbidity with and without primary stoma formation in the context of a Belgian project, PROCARE.
