Abstract

Since the introduction of Hartmann's operation and its broader applications, restoration of intestinal continuity has posed technical challenges and significant morbidity. We describe a technique for Hartmann's reconstruction, utilizing a circular anastomotic stapling device that is simple and fast and that minimizes the potential for contamination, in which the bowel lumen remains closed at all times.
