Drive Safely

Be careful out there.  This patient was wearing a seatbelt when T-boned on the highway.  The injury was a complete avulsion of a major branch off the ileocolic pedicle, along with complete shredding of the rectosigmoid mesentery.  All ended up well with timely intervention. 

Happy Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend.

Did it require segmental ileal enterectomy only, or did you have to perform a right hemicolectomy?
