What does patent end to side ileo colonic anastomosis in ascending colon mean? And characterized by healthy appearing mucosa! I had surgery in dec.

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. He has not scarred down to a small hole causing a problem. The lining of each tube, ileum and colon, is covered with mucosa and the appearance is health, not that of inflammation and such.

Whats ileorectal sigmoid anastomosis?

Tough one!: There is an ileorectal anastomosis - when the colon is removed we can attach the ileum - part of the end of the small intestine - to the rectum.

Your surgeon should know when and if this needs to be performed. ...Read more

Diagnostic assessment before fontan operation in patients with bidirectional cavopulmonary anastomosis: are noninvasive methods sufficient?

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 more
