AIM: To evaluate the efficacy of endoscopic examination of blood flow and edema in the remnant bowel.
METHODS: We retrospectively studied 15 patients who underwent massive bowel resection with enterostomy for superior mesenteric arterial occlusion (SMAO); the patients were divided into a delayed closure group (D group) and an early closure group (E group).
RESULTS: The mean duration from initial operation to enterostomy closure was significantly shorter in the E group (18.3 +/- 2.1 d) than in the D group (34.3 +/- 5.9 d) (P < 0.0001). The duration of hospitalization after surgery was significantly shorter in the E group (33 +/- 2.2 d) than in the D group (51 +/- 8.9 d) (P < 0.0002).
CONCLUSION: Endoscopic examination of blood flow and edema in the remnant bowel is useful to assess the feasibility of early closure of enterostomy in SMAO cases.
