Various outcomes have been reported in patients with Hirschsprung’s disease (HD) following transanal endorectal (TERPT) or conventional transabdominal (ABD) pull-through procedures. This study examined postoperative complications and the long-term outcome of TERPT vs. ABD pull-through for HD. Records were reviewed for 53 patients over 3 years of age in whom(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the complication rates and inflammatory response in TachoSil™-sealed small-diameter anastomoses with conventional and reduced suture number as a model for neonatal bowel surgery. Ileo-ileal anastomoses were performed in 73 rats. In the control group, the anastomosis was accomplished with the conventional technique,(More)
Testicular torsion in children is found both in neonates [perinatal testicular torsion (PTT), <30th day of life] and in older children [testicular torsion (TT)]. Prediction of testicular viability is essential for deciding whether to perform emergency exploration surgery. The aim of the present study, therefore, was to investigate the sonomorphological(More)
AIM The aim of the retrospective study was to evaluate complications and outcome of children in whom an intestinal anastomosis had been performed at age younger than 1 year. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data were collected both retrospectively and by interviewing the parents. For the retrospective analysis, the underlying disease, biometric data, technical(More)
INTRODUCTION Our studies of clipped intestinal non-perforating anastomosis (CINPA) of the small bowel in a rat model have demonstrated that all clips migrated from the outside to the inside of the small bowel during the healing process. The aim of this study was to describe how the clips migrate. MATERIAL AND METHODS In male Sprague Dawley rats small(More)
In contrast to adult surgery, the neonatal small intestine confronts the surgeon, depending on the age of the patient, with variable diameters of the intestine. Therefore, anastomoses are usually performed by hand with interrupted sutures. In the presented study, a new technique is demonstrated. An anastomosis in the distal ileum of Sprague Dawley rats was(More)
