Abstract

Background/Aims: Anastomotic leaks are continuing to be the source of major morbidity in colorectal surgery. Previous studies have shown that leptin acts as a growth factor for several cell types. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of leptin on healing of colonic anastomoses in rats.
