Evaluation of abdominal fistulas with computed body tomography

, : Evaluation of abdominal fistulas with computed body tomography. Computerized Radiology 6(1): 17-26

Patients (29) with abdominal fistulas (32) were evaluated by sinograms and CT [computed tomography]. Sinograms were superior to CT in displaying the fistulous tract and its communications to specific organ systems. CT added information affecting treatment plan or surgical approach by defining extent, nature and location of underlying disease, by eliminating overlap of opacified fistulas, cavities, bowel loops and surface contaminations, and by detecting additional undrained abscesses or recurrent tumor masses. While sinograms remain the initial procedure in the evaluation of abdominal fistulas, CT offers a useful secondary modality in selected instances.
