Anastomotic dehisense is a serious complication of anterior resections. We have had success in our centre utilising Endosponge therapy to salvage anastomotic leaks but this requires multiple endoscopic sessions and can take around 6 weeks to heal in some cases. This can delay further management such as chemotherapy.
