OBJECTIVE: To develop of an isoperistaltic invaginated valve for the treatment of short bowel syndrome. DESIGN: Randomised experimental study SETTING: University Hospital, Greece MATERIAL: 8 mongrel dogs INTERVENTION: 90% resection of the small bowel, followed by construction of an invaginated valve one month later. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: weight loss, fat excretion in the faeces, radiographic and histological examination of the valve, pressure curve along the valve. RESULTS: Weight loss and steatorrhoea were reversed over a period of 2-3 months without evidence of intestinal obstruction in any of the animals. CONCLUSIONS: The construction of an isoperistaltic invaginated valve could be a solution to the management of the short gut syndrome.
