Congenital short colon.


:Congenital short colon (CSC) is a condition in which the colon is replaced, wholly or partially, by a dilated pouch together with anorectal malformation and a colourinary fistula. Most of the reported series have been from northern India where this malformation is frequent. This paper details the management of 108 patients with CSC over a period of 23 years. The patients were classified into two types: (1) Partial short colon, where a segment of normal colon is present between the ileum and the sac. These patients could be treated by excision of the pouch and pull-through of the segment of normal colon during either single- or two-stage surgery. (2) Complete short colon, where the ileum opened directly into the sac, and formation of a tube from this sac (coloplasty) was required in one or more stages to provide a length of normally functioning colon. Review of the results showed staged management to be superior. The follow-up has ranged between 3 and 7 years, with satisfactory long-term results in both groups of patients. We have evolved a protocol for the management of CSC that has improved the prognosis and quality of life of these patients.

  • Study on the use of T-tube for patients with persistent duodenal fistula: is it useful?

    abstract:BACKGROUND: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. METHODS:All patien...
