Ulceration in an ileocolic anastomosis treated with ranitidin
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The authors report the case of a child born with a gastroschisis and an ileal atresia. After surgery, only 100 cm small bowel and the distal one third of his colon remained. Perianastomotic ulcers developed 6 years later. These were treated successfully with ranitidin, a treatment not previously reported in the literature. The authors conclude that treatment with ranitidin was successful in a patient with an ulcer in an ileocolic anastomosis.
