    Niels Komen
    Department of Surgery, ZNA Middelheim, Antwerp, Belgium
    Int J Colorectal Dis 24:789-95. 2009
    ..This study aims to increase knowledge of colorectal anastomotic leakage by performing an incidence study and risk factor analysis with new potential risk factors in a Dutch tertiary referral center...
  2. doi request reprint Colorectal anastomotic leakage: a new experimental model
    Niels Komen
    Department of Surgery, Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    J Surg Res 155:7-12. 2009
    ..To date, animal experiments concerning colorectal anastomosis focus on anastomotic healing instead of anastomotic leakage. This study aims to develop a new experimental model for colorectal anastomotic leakage...

    N Komen
    Department of Surgery, Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    J Microbiol Methods 79:67-70. 2009
    ..This may indicate an elevated sensitivity of the RT-PCR method. The results showed that the semi-quantitative RT-PCR method has a clear potential to be useful as a powerful tool in early detection of anastomotic leakage...
