Abstract

The intestines may be subjected to a variety of insults, including infection, infarction, trauma, and neoplasia. Resection of a portion of the intestine is often the only form of therapy available. Although several methods may be used to rejoin intestinal segments, the side-to-side anastomosis is frequently preferred for the student surgeon, because it can be used when the luminal diameters are of different sizes and there are fewer postoperative complications.
