This study was undertaken to examine the importance of the apposition of the submucosal layers in healing of the intestinal anastomosis. On 18 mongrel dogs, weighing between 8 and 15 kilograms, four anastomoses were performed on the small intestine. Two with a conventional anastomosis and two with rings of polyester-polyethyleneterephtalate, containing small Ticonal magnets. The force between the rings with the magnets varied from 0-3 newton between, respectively, 15 millimeters and zero… CONTINUE READING
