Anastomotic leak is a severe, potentially life-threatening complication following right colectomy. Internationally, anastomotic leak occurs after 8% of right colectomies. Prospective cohort data demonstrate that patient selection, intraoperative factors, and technical variation are risk factors for anastomotic leak. EAGLE was an international quality improvement programme to share best practice and harmonise procedures for surgeons and the theatre teams so that they might perform the best possible anastomosis for each particular patient. The study was carried out by 350+ hospitals across more than 60 countries.

This online webinar chaired by Prof. Dion Morton will provide all those working in surgical practice and research with an overview of the ground breaking global study EAGLE which is due to be published soon.

The main session will include three key presentations on (1) background and impact of anastomotic leak, (2) the design of the EAGLE study and (3) the headline results of the EAGLE study.

The format of the event includes a panel presentation of global experts discussing how the research was conducted, what the results showed, and the potential impact on surgical practice. There will be breakout sessions looking specifically at 2 key perspectives on the research (1) research methodology and results and (2) process evaluation. The webinar will conclude with a round table discussion of global experts discussing how these results can be implemented across the globe.
