EAGLE 2 Launch

EAGLE 2 Launch


Following on from publication of your EAGLE study last year, we are pleased to announce the launch of EAGLE 2. You are invited to join a webinar on Thursday 01st February at 15:00 GMT / 16:00 CET to hear more about the study. Please register your interest here.

EAGLE 2 will be a snapshot audit of patients undergoing right sided bowel anastomosis, BUT restricted to units who undertake the EAGLE online training. This training may have already been done, or surgeons in your team may complete it between now and May 2024. The training platform is available – open access – at https://eagle-escp.eu.com/.

A key finding from the EAGLE study was that in centres where most surgeons undertook the training, the anastomotic leak rate fell by almost 50%. We need your help to grow engagement across as many hospitals as possible, so we can validate this finding.

We anticipate that EAGLE 2 will recruit patients between May - June 2024. The results will be submitted to the BJS for publication after presentation at the ESCP conference in Greece (September 2024).

EAGLE 2 will be open to hospitals who participated in the original EAGLE study as well as new hospitals.

Contact J.Keatley@bham.ac.uk if you have any questions and we hope to see you at the webinar on 01st February.
