Laparoscopic Jejunal Atresia Repair - Technique

Pediatric Surgery
Dr. Steven Rothenberg describes his technique for laparoscopic repair of jejunal atresia with apple peel defect.  Key steps to the procedure include Veress entry, identification of the proximal and distal segments of jejunum, mobilization and resection of the short segment of dilated proximal jejunum with a laparoscopic stapler, a stapled end-to-side jejunojejunostomy, closure of the enterotomy, and decompression and retrieval of the specimen.
