A cohort study with 287 patients showed that those who fulfill 5 criteria 2 or 3 days after laparoscopic colorectal surgery (a CRP below 150 mg/dL, a return of bowel function, tolerance of a diet, little pain, and afebrile during the entire stay) have a low risk of developing an anastomotic leak. These criteria have the potential to allow for safe early discharge.
