Abstract

The increasing application of quality control in medicine sets the stage for a review of postoperative radiologic findings following gastrointestinal surgery. Typical findings are presented and their implications for the postoperative course and the patient's survival investigated. Data from literature underscore the preeminent role of anastomotic leakage for both postoperative morbidity and mortality of most gastrointestinal procedures. Imaging studies are a potent method of postsurgical quality assurance.
