Summary of "How I Do It: Side-to-Side Isoperistaltic Strictureplasty for Extensive Crohn's Disease."


INTRODUCTION:
Bowel-sparing surgical techniques, such as the Heineke-Mikulicz and the Finney strictureplasty, have been proposed as an alternative to lengthy intestinal resection in the treatment of small bowel strictures in Crohn's disease. However, these conventional strictureplasty techniques lend themselves poorly to cases of multiple short strictures closely clustered over a lengthy small bowel segment.
DISCUSSION:
In this article, we present the surgical technique of the side-to-side isoperistaltic strictureplasty, which is optimal in addressing these specific situations.

Surgical union or shunt between ducts, tubes or vessels. It may be end-to-end, end-to-side, side-to-end, or side-to-side.

The projecting part on each side of the body, formed by the side of the pelvis and the top portion of the femur.

The most posterior teeth on either side of the jaw, totaling eight in the deciduous dentition (2 on each side, upper and lower), and usually 12 in the permanent dentition (three on each side, upper and lower). They are grinding teeth, having large crowns and broad chewing surfaces. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p821)

A chronic transmural inflammation that may involve any part of the DIGESTIVE TRACT from MOUTH to ANUS, mostly found in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the COLON. In Crohn disease, the inflammation, extending through the intestinal wall from the MUCOSA to the serosa, is characteristically asymmetric and segmental. Epithelioid GRANULOMAS may be seen in some patients.

A condition characterized by persistent or recurrent labial enlargement, ORAL ULCER, and other orofacial manifestations in the absence of identifiable CROHN DISEASE; or SARCOIDOSIS. There is no consensus on whether orofacial granulomatosis is a distinct clinical disorder or an initial presentation of Crohn disease.
