An extension of the SHIME is made where the duodenum, jejunum and ileum are separately mimicked.
Examples of anastomoses include anastomoses between the stomach and a portion of the intestines such as the jejunum.
The latter provides for the attachment of a smaller, round, single lumen tube (10) that extends into the jejunum.
The latter provides for the attachment of a smaller, round, single lumen tube that extends into the jejunum.
Anastomoses can also be formed between a fundal pouch formed during a gastric bypass procedure and the jejunum.
The lesion and/or inflammation may e.g. be caused by conditions located in the oesophagus, in the stomach, in the duodenum, in the jejunem or in the ileum, colon or rectum.
A black silk loop may affix an end of the jejunal tube at a position in the jejunum, and insertion of the jejunal tube may be monitored continuously using an endoscope.
The stiffer sections resist migration and the more flexible or softer portions allow the tube to bend around the pyloris sphincter 5 and into the jejunum.
In short, the jejunum portion of the small intestine is obtained from a recently deceased warm-blooded vertebrate and is stored at 4°C in 0.9% saline solution.
