Aim: To evaluate the role of end-to-end oblique bowel anastomosis in bowel atresia. Methods: End-to-end oblique anastomosis was done in 25 neonates of bowel atresia and the results were compared with traditional method of end to back anastomosis in 25 cases. Results: We found less mortality and morbidity (5%) in our technique as compared to end to back technique (20%). Conclusions: We recommend this technique, as anastomosis is wide with less angulations, flow of effluent is linear, and there is less force exerted over post-anastomotic side wall.
