Low end-to-side rectoenteric anastomosis with single-layer wire.
A study of 41 cases where a single layer of 5-0 monofilament stainless steel wire is used for low end-to-side rectosigmoid or ileorectal anastomosis has shown satisfactory results. The procedure should be considered particularly where there is gross disparity between the sizes of the approximated cut ends.
