Abstract. – The authors report their experience with the use of biofragmentable anastomosis ring in intestinal anastomosis: 21 patients underwent intestinal resection and anastomosis by BAR. There was no operative mortality. One patient developed an anastomotic leak and three patients had symptoms of intestinal obstruction. The endoscopic follow up showed no late complications. Technical factors regarding the BAR are discussed. Advantages appear to be a safe, rapid and easy alternative to hand and stapled intraperitoneal large bowel anastomosis.
