Abstract

Laparoscopic repair of duodenal atresia has been reported. Reports to date have indicated use of standard laparoscopic suturing and knot tying. Unfortunately, there has been a high leak rate associated with the technique. We report our technique of using U-clips for the duodenoduodenostomy, thus limiting trauma to the duodenum during the anastomosis and less risk for postoperative leakage.
