Intestinal anastomosis was achieved using a single layer of simple interrupted suturing pattern with an absorbable braided suturing material (Catgut-3/0), (Coolman et al.
Group B: The circular mechanical stapler (EEA(tm) 21 mm and 25 mm Single-Use Stapler, (Ethicon(r), Johnson and Johnson, Pakistan) of 21 and 25 mm in diameter was used to generate end-to-end intestinal anastomosis (Martel and Boushey, 2007).
Suturing time: When intestinal anastomosis suturing times between Groups A and B were compared, a significant difference was found in the duration of operation (P[?
The aim of the current study was to determine by univariate and multivariate analyses the factors associated with clinically significant AL in patients who underwent large intestinal anastomosis (without a protective stoma).
The medical records of 647 patients who underwent large intestinal anastomosis during the study period were reviewed.
Intraoperative and Postoperative blood transfusion have adverse effects on elective intestinal anastomosis, significantly increase rate of surgical site infection, but regarding anastomosis leak and faecal fistula, post-operative blood transfusion has more adverse effects.

Both continuous and interrupted sutures are commonly used in fashioning intestinal anastomosis.
Interrupted single layer serosubmucosal suture is the "gold standard" for intestinal anastomosis and 2 is preferred hand sewen technique .
Intestinal anastomosis can be performed by a hand-sewn technique using absorbable and non-absorbable sutures or stapling device, suture anastomosis (hand-sewn technique) is the commonly used option because of the availability and affordability of suture material and familiarity with procedure.
Halsted (1887) emphasized the importance of submucosa in intestinal anastomosis because it is the strongest layer of the bowel, suture should be taken and considered as risk factor for anastomosis leak.
The key findings in this study was that post-operative complications did not differ significantly after early oral feeding with late starting of feeding after intestinal anastomosis
