Journal Article --- Old month value: Jul-Aug
The single-layer continuous suture technique has proven to be safe for all intestinal anastomoses of intraperitoneal small and large bowel segments. Since 1985, this technique has also been increasingly applied for gastroduodenostomy and gastrojejunostomy following partial gastrectomy. Through December 1989, we performed 96 gastroenteric anastomoses with the single-layer continuous suture technique. This accounts for 64% of all partial gastrectomies performed between 1985 and 1989. The technique was applied in 89.5% of the gastroenteric anastomoses during 1988 and 1989. The rate of complications after gastroenteric single-layer continuous suture technique was low; 2.1% clinical leakage was found, always in patients with perforated ulcer and peritonitis. We conclude that the single-layer continuous suture technique for gastroenteric anastomosis is safe, simple, easy to perform, quick and reliable.
