What Does Endtoside Ileocolonic Anastomosis Mean
If a balloon catheter cannot pass anastomosis site during anorectal manometry, does that mean there's likely a stricture there?

What does patent end to side ileo colonic anastomosis in ascending colon mean? And characterized by healthy appearing mucosa! I had surgery in dec.
All is good: The doctor is telling you that when the terminal ileum (end of small bowel) was connected to the colon, the passage between then is open and working.

Diagnostic assessment before fontan operation in patients with bidirectional cavopulmonary anastomosis: are noninvasive methods sufficient?
Not traditionally: I don't believe so. There may be some programs that will experiment with noninvasive pre-fontan imaging, but i believe that this is risky. The pressures are obtainable only by catheterization and this data may change the operation (e.g., whether or not to fenestrate the fontan to allow a pop-off of blue blood to increase the cardiac output.) catheterization also allows presurgical interventions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
