Treated with Enteroenterostomy:
Enteroenterostomy is utilized in cases of intestinal
obstruction, adhesions, regional ileitis and intestinal tumors.
There are no comparable non-surgical or surgical
alternatives to enteroenterostomy.
Enteroenterostomy is performed under general
anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware
during the procedure.
Complications from Enteroenterostomy:
Possible risks following enteroenterostomy include
infection, bleeding, scarring, incisional hernia, blood clots, abdominal pain
and a negative reaction to the anesthesia. It is also possible to experience
dumping syndrome, malabsorption and persistent vomiting.
Total recovery from enteroenterostomy
takes several weeks to several months.
