The commonest surgical treatment used for peptic ulcer perforation is omental patching. If, however, the perforation leaks, it rarely heals by itself due to persistence of duodenal fistula (DF). We present our experience with a T-tube placed into the DF for better outcome of the patients. All patients in our hospital with DF following failure of surgery for(More)

The present article details the histopathologic observations in the excised specimens of CPC in the neonates operated on for(More)

Congenital tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) with esophageal atresia (EA) is not an uncommon disease of newborns. Several classifications have been advocated for predicting the outcomes of these patients but all are physiological and concentrated on associated medical condition that influences survival. We emphasize a new classification on the basis of gap(More)

UNLABELLED Urethrocutaneous fistula is one of the most common complications after hypospadias surgery. The incidence of fistula development has varied from 4% to 20% in larger series. We sought to investigate the role of fibrin glue (Tisseel manufactured by Baxter India Pvt Ltd, Chennai, India) to reduce the chances of fistula formation in cases in proximal(More)
The aim of this study was to characterize a successful approach for the management of infants with long-gap esophageal atresia (EA) with tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). The goal was to preserve the native esophagus and minimize the incidence of esophageal anastomotic leaks using fibrin glue as a sealant over the esophageal anastomosis. A total of 52(More)
