Abstract: Purpose:To develop a new low-cost, easy-to-make and available training model using chickens’ intestine for infant intestinal anastomosis.Methods:Segments of chicken intestine were used to create an intestinal anastomosis simulator. We tried to perform an end-to-end, end-to-side and side-to-side anastomosis. Handsewn sutured anastomosis were performed in single layered with interrupted prolene 5-0 suture. The parameters analyzed were cost, intestine's diameter and length, anastomosis patency and flow-through an…
