 ABSTRACT
 
Objective: To compare the results of single layer continuous extra mucosal technique versus interrupted technique for sutures in anastomoses of gut.
Study Design: A randomized Control Trial.
Place and Duration: Study was conducted in DHQ Hospital, Sahiwal from 10th January 2017 to 20th January 2018.
Methodology: Patients were allocated into two groups randomly. Group 1 comprised of patients undergoing single layer continuous technique for anastomotic sutures while group 2 included the patients having surgery with single layer interrupted extra mucosal technique for gut anastomosis. The time required to construct an anastomosis, duration of hospital stay, demographic data, post-operative complications were documented.
Results: The mean Anastomosis time of group A and group B was 12.15±1.40 minutes and 20.98±1.38 minutes respectively. The mean Duration of postoperative hospital stay of group A and group B was 6.40±1.32 days and 6.36±0.66 respectively. Dehiscence of anastomosis was observed as 6.7% and 13.3% for group A and B respectively. Infection of surgical wound was noted as 16.7% and 20% for group A and B respectively. Mortality was occurred in 3.3% and 6.7% for group A and B respectively. The differences were statistically insignificant. 
Conclusion: Single layer continuous extra mucosal technique for the suturing of gut anastomosis proves to be safe, time conserving as compared to single layer interrupted technique.
Keywords: Anastmosis, Extra mucosal technique, Sutures, Gut, Single layer, Submucosa.
