In the present study, we examined the effect of a diverting colostomy on the intestinal healing of colonic anastomosis in the rat. For this purpose, we created a colonic stenosis 2 days prior to the formation of a distal one-layer end-to-end anastomosis with or without a proximal double-barreled deviation colostomy in the rats. Radiological examination of(More)
Two infants with total colonic aganglionosis (TCA) extending into the distal part of the ileum are described. Considerable diagnostic delay occurred with the correct diagnosis established first at 3 and 8 months, respectively. Radiologic findings compatible with TCA such as prolonged barium retention, reflux into ileum following barium enema, and(More)
