Abstract
Background:
No studies have appeared in the literature evaluating the intraluminal volume of injected saline in the canine colon for performing leak tests in colotomy incisions.
Aim:
To determine the volume of the injected intraluminal saline necessary to achieve an intraluminal pressure of 17.3 cm H2O in 10 cm colonic segments containing a closed colotomy occluded with intestinal forceps or by digital pressure.
Methods:
Fresh colon was obtained from 8 canine cadavers and divided into 10cm segments. A 3cm antimesenteric colonic incision was performed at each intestinal segment which was closed using a 3-0 polydioxanone suture in a simple continuous pattern. Each colonic construct was occluded with Doyen intestinal forceps or by digital pressure and a leak test was performed by saline infusion. The saline volume needed to achieve a predetermined intraluminal pressure of 17.3 cm H2O, following occlusion was recorded.
Results:
The mean volume of injected saline with the Doyen intestinal forceps occlusion (20.4 ± 8.2 ml) was significantly larger than that of the digital occlusion technique (17.5 ± 6.8 ml) [ P=0.021].
Conclusion:
For 10 cm canine colonic constructs containing a closed colotomy, saline volumes of 20.4 ml with Doyen occlusion and 17.5 ml with digital occlusion can be utilized to achieve intraluminal pressures of 17.3 cm H2O.
