Abstract

Colorectal anastomotic leak, a feared complication, results in significantly increased patient morbidity, mortality, and hospital resource utilization. The overall incidence of colorectal anastomotic leak is approximately 11% with increasing rate the closer the anastomosis is to the anal verge. Because surgeons are unable to reliably predict which anastomosis would fail, most will construct a diverting ileostomy for low colorectal anastomosis to circumvent the devastating complications of anastomotic failure. Despite extensive investigations on technical considerations of anastomosis construction, anastomotic leaks continue to occur at an unacceptably high rate.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 November 2017.
All research outputs
#3,002,724
of 12,253,551 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery
#206
of 1,345 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#33,467
of 143,397 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery
#4
of 29 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,253,551 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 75th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,345 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 143,397 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 29 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
