ABSTRACT

An attempt has been made to stress the importance of roentgenological examination in establishing definite preobservation diagnosis in some of the alimentary tract emergencies in the newborn. A brief account of the roentgenological criteria has been given with illustrations of surgically proved cases whereever possible. A short list of pertinent references is appended.

Figure 0007: Imperforate anus. Wangensteen's technique in the inverted position with a metallic marker. Gas outlines the rectum

Mentions: Using Wangensteen's technique of inverting the baby and placing a metallic marker on the perineal dimple, it is possible to determine how near the pouch is to the perineum by taking a lateral view of the pelvis (Figure 7). This method of roentgenological examination is only valid after 14-18 hours of life. Otherwise gas may not have reached the rectal pouch. The fistulous tracts if present can be visualized after injection of lipiodol and taking anterio-posterior and lateral views of the pelvis. The tracts running to the genito-urinary system should be easily traced.
