      Hi.....I just recently had a ct scan done and there are some changes. The one part I did not understand was that there is at least one sinus tract identified along the mesenteric border.....okay what does this mean? anyone? I won't speak to my gastro for a couple of days and was just wondering. Thanks to anyone who can answer this.... eyes ....

A sinus tract is a small linear cavity usually caused by infection, often at the site of surgery or other injury. For a roughly similar explanation, see: http://yourtotalhealth.ivillage.com/infection-forms-sinus-tract.html

Excellent find and explanation, Keeper. Good job!
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
