Case Report of an Innovative Method of Repairing Proximal Perforations in Necrotizing Enterocolitis
Asian Journal of Case Reports in Surgery,
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders affecting preterm infants. Initially, NEC can be managed both medically and surgically, with surgical intervention becoming inevitable in the context of intestinal perforation. Surgical management of NEC depends on the severity and location of the perforation, with resection being the standard approach. Subsequently, a primary anastomosis or enterostomy can be performed depending on the clinical condition. This case reports addresses the innovative technique of utilizing a gastrostomy for proximal duodenal jejunal perforations and the advantages that come along with it.
