Long strictures in terminal ileum( 2 feet) should be best manged by ileocaecal resection and ileoascending anastomosis or ileotransverse bypass?
It is not unusual to find a case of long distal ileal stricture in terminal 2 feet of ileum. Causes may be tubercular, post perforation closure( Inflammatory). It is always a dilemma to resect the segment and perform ileoascending anastomosis or less radical approach by ileotransverse bypass. Useful posts in this situation are invited from literature search with personal experience series.
