Core Tip Although the most important prerequisites for the creation of anastomosis is well-perfused and tension-free anastomosis, surgeons have proposed several preventive measures, which were assumed to reduce the incidence of anastomotic leakage, including antibiotic prophylaxis, intraoperative air leak test, omental pedicle flap, defunctioning stoma, pelvic drain insertion, stapled anastomosis, and general surgical technique. However, the decision remains based on the surgeon’s choice. This review found that many preventative measures were employed with no clear evidence supporting the superiority of stapled anastomosis over hand-sewen anastomosis, coating of the anastomosis, or pelvic drain. Defunctioning stoma, when justified it could decrease the leakage-related complications and the incidence of reoperation. Mechanical bowel preparation combined with oral antibiotics still recommended.
