Caption

Acute diverticulitis with abscess formation or inflammatory bowel disease sometimes leads to surgery with the creation of a blind loop. If a primary resection and anastomosis cannot be done, the colon is sometimes resected and reconnected so that the diseased portion of colon is bypassed and left as a blind loop. At colonoscopy, 30 cm from the anus, this patient had an anastomosis performed with a blind loop of colon on the right and the remainder of the normal colon to the left.
