Table 2 Types of procedures by study population and comparator group

From: Proof-of-concept for intervention to prevent post-operative ileus in patients undergoing ileostomy formation

  Baseline (n = 261) Study period (n = 58)

  1. aOne patient had total proctocolectomy with end ileostomy planned, but because the terminal ileum was tethered by mesenteric tumor, an ileostomy with loop configuration was created and efferent end was stapled off to ensure bowel decompression
  2. bIncludes completion proctectomy, sigmoidectomy, or right hemicolectomy
  3. DLI diverting loop ileostomy, End end ileostomy, J-pouch ileal pouch-anal anastomosis
