Background and aims: Soluble fiber is fermented by colonic microflora yielding short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) in the colon. We aimed to investigate the effect of oral administration of soluble fiber on heating of anastomosis and matrix metalloproteinase-2 activity in radiotherapy received colonic anastomosis.
