Abstract

Abstract Standard procedures for the treatment of aganglionic megacolon include resection of abnormal colon. A procedure has been developed in dogs which obviates resection by insertion of a jejunal pedicle graft along the entire length of the narrowed segment. Results were evaluated by intraluminal pressure recordings, barium enema studies, and clinical observation.
