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.
