Abstract

Transcaecal ileal diversion has been used in association with primary resection and anastomosis to defunction an elective distal colonic anastomosis in 10 patients and to allow on-table colonic lavage with subsequent colonic defunction in 11 patients presenting as an emergency with distal colonic obstruction. Post-operative wound sepsis occurred in four patients (19%) with a clinical anastomotic leak in one patient. The median hospital stay was 14 (10-19) days. Transcaecal ileal diversion is simple to perform. It may facilitate primary resection and anastomosis in both the elective and emergency situation without increasing morbidity, mortality or the hospital stay.
