Abstract

Fifteen Beagle dogs underwent oesophagogastric anastomosis with a new device which enables a 'sutureless' compression anastomosis. The device fragmented and was passed in bits anally without causing obstruction. Immediate bursting pressure, tested in five dogs, was between 175 and 190 mmHg. The anastomoses of the remaining dogs were examined macroscopically and microscopically from day 6 to day 30. Healing was excellent with good muscular apposition and minimal residual inflammation.
