Morbidity and mortality of various surgical therapy protocols for large bowel carcinoma were analysed in 1270 patients and compared to data from other working groups. We found a decline of mortality rates, especially after abdomino-perineal rectum extirpation. The infection rate of the sacral wound is, however, still as high as it used to be. The anastomotic insufficiency rate after anterior rectum resection is depending on location of the anastomoses, amounting to about 7-8% after manual suture as well as after stapled anastomosis. In colon surgery general complications are more frequent than surgical ones.
