The main short-term complication is the leak of the rectal stump, due to technical, local, and systemic reasons, such as ischemia, severe colitis, severe anemia, or malnutrition. Fig. Ureteric stents can be very useful in identifying both ureters but in any case, both should be identified and safeguarded before dividing the endopelvic fascia on either side of the rectal stump and the lateral ligaments. Gregory A. Coté, Steven A. Edmundowicz, in Clinical Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (Second Edition), 2012. It was originally designed for and performed only in case of neoplastic obstructions. The diseased portions of tissue are then identified and removed. The operation does carry risks and is not as easy and straightforward as reversal of a loop colostomy. First, there may be a midrectal stricture, which makes passage of the stapler impossible. The abdomen is then closed, leaving a suction drain in the pelvis. The current literature is split on the safety of this technique in the urgent or emergent setting. Reversal of Hartmann procedure for diverticulitis with creation of a colorectal anastomosis... Diverticular Disease of the Colon. Creation of the anastomosis can be challenging as well, and the surgeon should be facile in several different anastomotic techniques. Ideally, over time the inflammation or primary condition resolves, and Hartmann’s reversal or colostomy takedown can be considered. The presence of PSC and a long duration of IBD before STC were risk factors for the cancer [37]. The patient should also be warned that, as protection against anastomotic dehiscence, a temporary stoma may be raised and alternative stoma sites should, therefore, be marked preoperatively. Patients complain of urgency, pelvic pressure, and mucous or bloody discharge. The end colostomy is mobilised from the abdominal wall using a circumstomal incision, freeing the rectus muscle and sheath from the colon. Therefore, surveillance proctoscopy or sigmoidoscopy is needed in UC patients with long-term Hartmann pouches who are not candidates for stoma closure. (2017) World journal of emergency surgery : WJES. Laparoscopic Hartmann procedure reversal (LHPR) is a challenging operation involving the closure of a colostomy following formation of colorectal … The remnant rectum stump is sewn shut. Beck and Conklin (1975) came to a similar conclusion in colonic trauma. In patients with significant contamination, wound infection can be avoided by leaving the skin and subcutaneous tissue open to close by secondary or delayed primary intention. With successful placement of a stent, patients can receive a full bowel preparation before undergoing a single-stage resection with reanastomosis. In a case series of 188 patients undergoing STC for UC, 71 (66%) had subsequent completion proctectomy IPAA. (A) The stump leak (green arrow); (B) the leak caused entero-cutaneous fistula as shown in gastrografin enema; (C) attempted closure with an endoscopic over-the-scope clipping device. This manoeuvre may prevent damage to the bladder if the rectal stump cannot be located. 5.9. This avoids a major pelvic dissection, with its attendant risks of ureteric damage, bleeding and injury to the rectum. Next, a stoma, or surgical hole, is created in the abdominal wall. The reversal of the Hartmann's procedure is the second stage of the operation. If there is concern about the integrity of the anastomosis a proximal stoma, preferably a loop ileostomy (Figure 33.42a) or a caecostomy, should be raised (Figure 33.42b). Magdalene A. Brooke MD, Gregory P. Victorino MD, FACS, in Abernathy's Surgical Secrets (Seventh Edition), 2018. Hartmann’s operation allows elective restoration of bowel continuity usually after 6 months, In some cases, the previous operation has included pelvic dissection with removal of a portion of the rectum proper, and these cases can be more challenging. Similarly, if the trocar is brought through the rectum close to but not at the end, ischemia may develop between the anastomosis and the oversewn end of the rectum, with a risk of subsequent perforation. ADVERTISEMENT: Radiopaedia is free thanks to our supporters and advertisers. The treatment of stump leak-associated complications can be challenging. Patient was scheduled for a colonoscopy the day before he was due to have the colostomy reversal. A similar purse-string is applied over the cut end of the descending colon. In general, the prevailing principle of ensuring good blood supply to both ends of bowel applies. 5.9). However, if the oversewn end of the rectum has much scarring around it, the distal donut may be excessively large and cause tearing of the anastomosis on withdrawal. why the three-stage procedure was superseded by Hartmann’s is the significant difference in mortality rates. One variation is the side-to-end anastomosis, in which the stapler head is passed through the open end of the distal colon, punching the trocar through the antimesenteric colon wall 5 to 7 cm from the open colonic end. The patient should be told that this is a major operation carrying a potentially high incidence of postoperative complications. The bowel should be thoroughly prepared beforehand and it is also advisable to use a rectal washout to clear the rectal stump of inspissated mucus. This is a major procedure and usually involves a Hartmann’s procedure (a sigmoid colectomy with formation of an end colostomy. The remaining intestines are rerouted and attached to a stoma, or opening, in the abdomen. The patient is anaesthetised, catheterised and placed in the Lloyd Davies position so that the rectal ampulla can be examined or intubated, a staple gun passed, or a rectal washout performed during the operation. Disclaimer: These citations have been automatically generated based on the information we have and it may not be 100% accurate. A deep pelvic retractor is used anteriorly to retract the bladder and the uterus. degree. Check for errors and try again. Passage of a large clamp proximally through the anastomosis ensures this is not the case. Not uncommonly both ureters are pulled into the dense fibrotic resection at the apex of the rectal stump. Tagged red blood cell nuclear scans are useful for slower GI bleeding (detects bleeding at 0.2–0.5 mL/min). Surg Endosc. It is believed that the main etiopathogenetic factor for diversion proctitis or diversion colitis is the lack of short-chain fatty acids due to fecal diversion. Hartmann’s procedure typically involves removal of the sigmoid colon +/- rectum with end colostomy formation in the acute setting (usually for perforated … The variation of technical problems in the fashioning of an anastomosis deep in the pelvis calls for some ingenuity, and no one technique will always be the best. A Hartmann pouch may be complicated by 3: The dissection should keep close to the bowel so as to free it to the tip of the coccyx. Perforation is observed more frequently with colonic compared with gastroduodenal stents, with a reported rate of 3.8% in the largest compilation.25 The risk seems to be highest in patients who undergo balloon dilation of the malignant stricture before stent deployment.25,26 Delayed perforations have been reported several months after deployment.38 Stent migration most commonly occurs within the first week after placement and is observed more frequently with right-sided lesions. Twenty patients elected not to pursue subsequent IPAA and chose to have rectal stump surveillance. Care must be taken not to include the back wall of the colon in the circular stapler and staple-shut the colon. In cases of hematochezia, it is important to rule out upper GI source of bleeding with placement of a nasogastric tube. The maneuvers described previously (bimanual exam and use of transanal dilators) will be helpful in this circumstance. Hartmann pouch is different from the ileal pouch, as the former is created from the large bowel and the latter is from the small bowel. In a study of 42 who had Hartmann pouches for underlying UC or CD, no endoscopic or histologic signs of dysplasia or carcinoma were seen and no mutations in the TP53 gene were detected in any biopsy or lavage fluid specimens in a median disease duration was 8.5 years (range 1.3–34) [36]. Hartmann procedure (HP) (or proctosigmoidectomy) is an operation in which the sigmoid colon is resected and the distal colon brought out as a colostomy in the left iliac fossa. The diseased area is removed and the bowel is not re-joined. A treatment algorithm is shown in Figure 8.6. The shorter the rectal stump, the more likely that the surgeon will have difficulty identifying, mobilizing, and preparing the rectal remnant for anastomosis. To ensure the latter, the entirety of the high-pressure zone of the sigmoid and descending colon should be resected and the anastomosis constructed with the true rectum.

Nonetheless, the best treatment modality for diversion proctitis or colitis is the reestablishment of natural route of fecal discharge by closure of the stoma. Complications. The anus appeared normal in its anatomy and function. A lower purse-string can be placed over the cut edge of the upper rectum or the rectal stump is closed with a transverse stapler. In most cases, Hartmann pouch is usually created temporarily, setting the stage for subsequent completion proctectomy or IRA. Once the stapler has been successfully placed, the pin is brought out posterior to the transverse rectal staple line. The cut end of the bowel is connected to the stoma in order to allow fecal waste … 153 (1): 31-8. Once the operation has been completed, the anastomosis can be tested by air insufflation under water and any leaks oversewn. The omentum is dissected off the left side of the transverse colon and the mesocolon and splenic flexure completely released. Reversal of Hartmann procedure for diverticulitis with creation of a colorectal anastomosis is a common reoperation performed by many general and colorectal surgeons that can at times involve considerable pelvic dissection. Song and colleagues43 published their experience with this device in 147 patients with malignant colon obstruction. The patient should receive some form of perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis and protection against the risk of thromboembolism. The Hartmann procedure is one in which a portion of the bowel, colon, and sometimes rectum is surgically remove. It is also important to sufficiently mobilize the proximal colon to allow for a tension-free colorectal anastomosis. 67-10). David W. Dietz, Feza H. Remzi, in Shackelford's Surgery of the Alimentary Tract, 2 Volume Set (Eighth Edition), 2019. In Surgery of the Anus, Rectum & Colon (Third Edition), 2008. On withdrawal of the circular stapler, the opened colon end is closed with a linear stapler, the tissue rings are checked, and anastomotic integrity is confirmed by transanal insufflation of dilute povidone-iodine. Once the end of the colon has been mobilised, a Potts’ clamp or a linear stapler is used to close the bowel before delivering the colon into the peritoneal cavity. Henri Albert Hartmann (1869-1952) originally described his eponymous procedure for the treatment of an obstructive colorectal carcinoma in 1923 1. Leak at Hartmann pouch. Colostomy was formerly the treatment of choice to reduce the complication rate following colorectal trauma. Fig. Once the affected part of the colon has been removed, the healthy end of Overall, technical and clinical success rates were greater than 90%, comparable with other series. The former is sometimes made difficult by angulation or tethering of the midrectum at the level of the anterior peritoneal reflection that prevents transanal passage of the stapler. Please consult the latest official manual style if you have any questions regarding the format accuracy. Re-establishment of continuity between a proximal bowel segment and a non-compliant or highly diseased distal rectal stump may create a perineal colostomy type of situation with high bowel frequency, urgency and incontinence. The most common reasons are bowel cancer and diverticular disease.Surgery involves removing the affected section of the bowel (colon) and creating an alternative path for the excrement to be passed. This is appropriate if the rectum has been out of circuit for many months or years. Although the feasibility of colonic stents as a bridge to surgery is well established, data are conflicting on the use of stents for long-term palliation. De Hartmann procedure wordt soms uitgevoerd bij mensen met colorectale kanker uitgevoerd, wanneer deze gedeelten van het maagdarmstelsel zo ziek zijn dat ze niet langer. 5.10). If the rectal stump is short and all the lower sigmoid has been resected at the time of the original procedure, it is still possible to achieve an anastomosis without disturbing the pelvis at all. Similarly, the distal segment of the proximal colon containing the colostomy is resected so that the wider diameter descending colon can be used for the anastomosis (Figure 33.40a). The natural history of Hartmann pouch in patients with UC is poorly defined. There is risk for CAN in Hartmann’s pouch in patients with underlying IBD. If a colostomy is created, the two options are end-colostomy and Hartmann procedure, or end-colostomy and mucous fistula. In fact, only 8 of 20 patients in the surveillance group were compliant with follow-up endoscopy, and 13 were able to maintain their rectum; 2 required proctectomy at 11 and 16 years, respectively, for rectal cancer [38]. Illustration showing Hartmann’s procedure (or proctosigmoidectomy), which is an operation to remove part of the sigmoid colon and/or rectum. Details of the morbidity of restoring intestinal continuity after the Hartmann procedure are found in Chapter 33. The staged IPAA procedure in UC often requires creation of diverted rectum or rectosigmoid colon, along with ileostomy. 3); an anastomosis with reversal of colostomy may be possible at a later date (but this only occurs in ~50% of cases). There is still evidence to support considering elective colectomy after episodes of complicated diverticulitis requiring abscess drainage or other invasive therapy. Sharp scissor dissection is usually the only way to mobilise the thickened rectosigmoid from the pelvis, particularly if there has been pelvic sepsis. Fig. Trauma, volvulus, and ischemia are less frequent indications. Failure to include the uppermost aspect of the rectum in the resection will increase the risk of recurrent diverticulitis by twofold.1 As mentioned previously, the surgeon must also be vigilant so as not to miss “hidden” sigmoid colon adherent in a very difficult pelvis and thus construct an anastomosis between the descending colon and the midsigmoid colon. Usually, the serial passage of dilators per rectum remedies this, but occasionally, further rectal resection to healthy rectum is needed. This simple move can prevent the tremendous difficulties that ensue if the stapler is inadvertently pushed through the apex of the stump. The gallbladder has a capacity of about 50 millilitres (1.8 imperial fluid ounces). Des Winter, in Colorectal Surgery (Fifth Edition), 2014. {"url":"/signup-modal-props.json?lang=us\u0026email="}. However, there is emerging literature supporting primary anastomosis, possibly with diverting ileostomy to protect the anastomosis. Specific complications after restoring intestinal continuity in the Hartmann's procedure are bleeding, sepsis, anastomotic leakage, prolonged ileus and ischaemia of the bowel proximal to the suture line. The abdominal part of the procedure may be done by the conventional open technique, or alternatively by the laparoscopic approach. It is a quick and straightforward intervention and currently finds most favor in the emergency setting, when other perioperative factors preclude a primary colorectal anastomosis 1. Preoperative assessment of both distal and proximal bowel limbs is important whether the procedure is to be performed by laparoscopy or laparotomy, and endoscopy with biopsy may be indicated. Anastomosis to a closed out-of-circuit rectum, as in the second stage of a Hartmann procedure, is perhaps the commonest pelvic reoperation and may pose a couple of common problems (Figure 182-6, A). The authors speculated the perforations might be related to the particular stent used in this trial because three of six patients developed perforations related to erosions through normal colonic wall. This exhibit depicts the creation of a colostomy via the Hartmann Procedure. 3. Citation. In cases where reach to the pelvis cannot be achieved after these maneuvers, the right branches of the middle colic vessels can be divided and a retroileal colorectal anastomosis constructed. (2016) Journal of visceral surgery. Option a is the safer choice in a grossly contaminated or inflamed field. Further developments in covered stent technology are necessary before their widespread use for long-term palliation of colonic obstruction becomes standard practice. Hartmann procedure includes closure of the anorectal opening after extraction of the tumor and formation of an end colostomy of the proximal end of the bowel. Common lower GI causes: Diverticulosis, cancer, angiodysplasia. In addition to avoiding a colostomy, a prepared colon may be inspected to rule out a synchronous tumor at the time of surgery. Stents placed for malignant colonic obstruction can serve as a bridge to a single-stage surgical resection or as a palliative measure in patients with advanced disease. Return of bile without blood is proof of lower GI source. Restoration of continuity is usually performed 3–6 months after the original resection. Examples include right colectomy techniques, sigmoid colectomy, left hemicolectomy, total colectomy, panproctocolectomy, total mesorectal excision, Hartmann’s procedure and its reversal and rectopexy. Current indications for the Hartmann procedure. The risk of dysplasia or cancer in the diverted colorectum appears to be low in patients with diversion colitis in the absence of a history of colorectal cancer or IBD. All Hartmann’s resections conducted on the left colon are amenable to a laparoscopic reversal attempt. DEFINITION The Hartmann procedure is an operation in which the rectum and a portion of bowel are surgically removed. Surgery involves removing the affected section of the bowel and creating an alternative path for faeces to be passed. Hartmann procedure (HP) (or proctosigmoidectomy) is an operation in which the sigmoid colon is resected and the distal colon brought out as a colostomy in the left iliac fossa. An enigma of terminology. Polyps or carcinoma can also develop in this segment.10 Patients may be asymptomatic until the tumor has become far advanced. Jonathan Worsey, Victor W. Fazio, in Shackelford's Surgery of the Alimentary Tract (Seventh Edition), 2013. Ideally, a stapled colorectal anastomosis can be constructed, using either a double-stapled or double-pursestring technique. Hartmann's procedure, a segmental resection of the sigmoid colon with a temporary end colostomy, was developed almost a century ago as an alternative to abdominoperineal resection for … Certified Medical Illustrations, Inc. - 2.24k Followers, 103 Following, 3913 pins | CMI is a graphics company specializing in Medical Legal Illustrations, animations, … If the patient has diversion colitis or has been diverted for a prolonged period of time, then rectal compliance studies or even an enema retention test may be useful. Hartmann Procedure Reoperative Pelvic Surgery. Hinchey IV (fecal peritonitis) diverticulitis, palliation: serious concurrent disease or fecal incontinence. 1996 Jan;10(1):81-2. There are several critical steps necessary for creation of a safe anastomosis and to minimize the risk of recurrent diverticulitis. This scenario is not uncommon and can lead to anastomotic leak due to poor blood supply, continued colonic obstruction, or pelvic sepsis if the area of stricture or prior perforation in the distal sigmoid colon is not resected. This is nearly always adherent to the pelvic brim posteriorly. The three-stage procedure is associated with mortality of up to 44%, whereas Hartmann’s has an overall mortality of around 14%[5,8,9]. The stricture can be treated with dilation with digit, bougie or balloon, or endoscopic stricturotomy. The creation of an artificial bowel outletor stoma(see below) may be necessary. No matter the cause, further attempts to force the stapler should be abandoned rather than risk rectal perforation. In case of apparent inadequate colon length due to previous resection and previous splenic flexure mobilization, a few crucial inches of length can be obtained by mobilizing the colon to the hepatic flexure and passing the colon through a mesenteric window between the ileocolic and superior mesenteric vessels. For many years the thought was that prophylactic colectomies should be performed in the setting of recurrent diverticulitis in order to prevent both future episodes and future complications requiring colostomy. All adhesions are divided so that wound protectors and a self-retaining retractor can be inserted. A second area of difficulty can be encountered at the apex of a long Hartmann pouch where the head of the stapler will not adequately efface the end of the rectal stump. We do not advise insertion of stapling devices per rectum until the rectum is completely mobilised and the redundant sigmoid colon excised, particularly as most resections previously undertaken under emergency conditions consist of little more than resection of the perforation. Such patients are probably better left with their stoma. The anvil is inserted into the opened distal rectum, which previously had a purse-string suture placed, and the stapled anastomosis is completed (Figure 182-6, B and C). This blind limb is called a Hartmann pouch; Sometimes the choice to make a Hartmann pouch is up to the surgeon, but sometimes not enough sigmoid colon is left after surgery to allow externalisation, in which case a Hartmann pouch has to be formed (as part of a Hartmann procedure). Classically, it has been the standard to perform option a, resection with end colostomy, because of the concern for creation of an anastomosis in an inflamed, infected setting. In patients with limited contamination, the skin and the subcutaneous tissue can be closed primarily. Historically it was a lot more commonly used with a much wider set of indications.
