Abstract

A simplified technic of aseptic anastomosis is described which stresses fundamental principles in surgery of the small intestine. Special emphasis is given to the method of clamping the bowel in relation to the mesenteric border and the method of stripping the mesentery free from the proposed line of anastomosis. An important feature of the technic is elimination of the "mesenteric angle." The importance of including a portion of the submucosa with each stitch of the continuous suture is emphasized. The advantage of beginning and ending the continuous suture on the same bowel segment with stitches parallel to long axis of bowel is explained. © 1944.
