          Abstract

          Anastomotic leakage (AL) is associated with increased morbidity and mortality after colorectal surgery. Calcification of the arteries has been identified as a risk factor for cardiovascular events and can be reliably measured on computed tomography using software assistance. The aim of this prospective study was to prove the value of calcium scoring of the iliac arteries as a predictor of AL after rectal anastomosis.
