New pathway for leads in dynamic graciloplasty
- 9 Downloads
Dynamic graciloplasty is one of the methods now used to re-establish anal function. Among complications, pain in the local tissue and skin irritation have been reported, both caused by lead wires. By passing the leads posterior to the adductor longus muscle, the wires do not irritate the local skin and are fixed well without sutures. We performed this procedure in three patients, with good results. The technique is easy, and complications involving the lead wires were minimized.
