After surgery, the patient developed leakage along the anastomosis that ultimately required four additional procedures, including the creation and take down of an ileostomy, during a seven-month period.
Despite meticulous suturing, telescoping techniques, or covering the anastomosis with pedicles of vital tissues, dehiscence may still occur.
The surgeon frees up the affected segment of the bowel, removes the diseased portion, and rejoins the proximal and distal edges with a surgical anastomosis whenever possible.
A period of starvation is common practice after gastrointestinal surgery during which an intestinal anastomosis has been formed.
Evidence of a remote surgical anastomosis was noted.
The anastomosis is completed by inserting the coupling member, with the graft vessel attached, into the anchor member.
collateral veins are likely to develop across the anastomosis within a few months
a new technique of intestinal anastomosis was devised
Approximately 8 years after this, he underwent repair of an aneurysmal area that had developed in the right ventricular outflow tract at the anastomotic site of the pulmonary artery that was related to the Blalock-Taussig shunt.
Clips were placed at the left edge of the applicator cone, and the second field was placed to encompass the previous area of tumor recurrence to the left upper pelvic sidewall near the original anastomotic site of Mr T's sigmoid resection.
