CLOSureE of Ileostomy Timing Study

Prospective snapshot audit and retrospective analysis of ileostomy closure following anterior resection for rectal cancer

Aim: to investigate time to ileostomy closure in the UK and identify reasons for delays

  1. Retrospective arm: review records from a historical 12-month period to calculate time to closure and incidence of non-closure
  2. Prospective arm: collect data over a 3-month period from April 2018 on patients undergoing ileostomy closure
