Thiry's fistula

An artificial fistula for collecting the intestinal secretions of a dog or other animal for experimental purposes; a loop of intestine is isolated, its vascular and nervous connections are preserved, and the continuity of the intestinal tract is restored by anastomosis; one end of the isolated segment is closed, the other attached to the skin of the abdomen.
