An easy method for monitoring free jejunal transfer by detecting peristalsis using echography

An easy method for monitoring free jejunal transfer by detecting peristalsis using echography We present a simple procedure for monitoring a free jejunal flap. Peristalsis is assessed by echography every 4 h during the first 3 postoperative days and once a day during the following 4 days. When peristalsis is not seen, it is stimulated by pushing on the skin and is again observed. This method has been used in five patients, and peristalsis was detected in all five. This method is simple, inexpensive, and noninvasive; thus it is a very effective technique for free jejunal flap monitoring http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

We present a simple procedure for monitoring a free jejunal flap. Peristalsis is assessed by echography every 4 h during the first 3 postoperative days and once a day during the following 4 days. When peristalsis is not seen, it is stimulated by pushing on the skin and is again observed. This method has been used in five patients, and peristalsis was detected in all five. This method is simple, inexpensive, and noninvasive; thus it is a very effective technique for free jejunal flap monitoring
