ABSTRACT: An isolated bowel segment (IBS) was created in 10 rats by a two staged procedure: (1) Co-optation of the omentum to the submucosa of the bowel segment and (2) division of the mesentery of this segment 6 weeks later. Fluorescein angiography was done in 5 rats and showed that the IBS was sustained by collateral from the omentum. Histological evaluation in 5 other rats showed no adverse changes in the wall or mucous of the IBS. Stomal stenosis has been shown to be of potential advantage for the use of IBS in bowel elongation procedures.
