Intraluminal stenting of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract in both multiple intestinal atresias and perforations was used in three patients. In the atresia patients (2), a piercing trocar was used to create continuity of the GI tract and as a guide to thread the intestine over the stent. All patients currently demonstrate normal growth and development on routine enteral feeds. None developed anastomotic leaks or strictures.
