Abstract

The closure of the mesenteric defect following bowel resection remains controversial. Proponents of the intervention cite the risk of bowel herniation through an open mesenteric defect and subsequent bowel obstruction whereas supporters of the opposing view advocate that such practice may lead to inadvertent compromise of the bowel blood supply. We describe a novel technique that enables efficient mesenteric defect closure while minimizing the risk of blood vessel injury.
