Ileocolonic Anastomosis with Chromic Catgut and Polypropylene Versus Polyglactin 910 - A comparative study.
Keywords:Ileocolonic anastomosis, sutures, chromic catgut, polypropylene
Forty-eight patients underwent right hemicolectomy and end to end double layer ileocolonic anastomosis. They were divided in two groups on the basis of different suture material used in the anastomosis. In group A chromic catgut 00 for inner layer and polypropylene for seromuscular layer was used. In group B both layers were stitched with polyglactin91° in the same manner, The results of both groups are comparable and equally effective but chromic catgut and polypropylene sutures arc about fifty percent economical than polyglactin suture used in a single ileocolonic anastomosis.
