Abstract

We describe a technique that uses the internal mammary vessels to enhance long-segment jejunal graft blood supply in addition to an intact distal mesenteric vascular arcade. We believe that this technique, called vascular augmentation, improves jejunal graft perfusion and decreases ischemic complications.
