Jejunal atresia with 'apple peel' deformity. A report of eight survivors.
J Perinatol. 1989 Sep; 9(3):281-6.JP

Abstract

Jejunal atresia with an "apple peel" deformity is one of the most severe forms of intestinal atresia. Until quite recently, neonatal mortality rates as a result of this anomaly were high. Early diagnosis, appropriate surgery, and prolonged parenteral nutrition have led to a spectacular improvement of the survival rates. We are reporting eight cases of apple peel atresia--all eight patients survived. The pathophysiology, diagnostic aspects, surgical approaches, and postoperative management are discussed.
