A previously unreported technique for surgical management of tubular duplications of the small intestine is described. Stripping the mucosal lining from the duplication through multiple transverse incisions in the seromuscular layers preserves the essential blood supply of the adjacent normal intestine, yet removes the gastric mucosal lining which is responsible for most of the problems associated with this anomaly. A case is presented in which a very long tubular duplication lined entirely by gastric mucosa was successfully treated by this operation.
