Conference paper


Since the nineteenth century many concepts for anastomosis have been described. In 1892, Murphy performed a ring anastomosis using a steel button. This technique is now used with a biofragmentable ring made of polyglycolic acid (87.5% by weight) and barium sulfate (12.5% by weight). The ring breaks into fragments by hydrolysis in 15–23 days. The différents fragments are eliminated in the stool. The barium sulfate makes X-ray control easy
