Abstract

Two children with congenital microgastria and associated anomalies requiring surgery as infants, developed severe dumping syndrome which necessitated a remedial operation. A Roux-en-Y jejunal pouch (Hunt-Lawrence) was formed at 22 months and 10 months respectively. Weight gain was immediate in both patients and has been sustained for 6 months and 8 years respectively. Symptoms of the dumping syndrome were relieved and the pouch delays filling of the jejunum. © 1983 Grune & Stratton, Inc.
