Laparoscopic Intestinal Duplication Cyst Repair - Technique

Pediatric Surgery
Dr. Steven Rothenberg describes his technique for laparoscopic treatment of an intestinal duplication cyst. His technique involves running of the bowel to identify the cyst, opening of the mesentery distal and proximal to the cyst with a vessel sealer, division of the bowel both distal and proximal to the cyst with a stapler, control of mesenteric vessels with a vessel sealer, alignment of the bowel, and then a side-to-side stapled anastomosis, with closure of the enterotomy.
