The article is based on the memories of a great pediatric surgeon of the XX century, which are of historic interest for pediatric surgeons of today. Our colleague Ken Kimura who is an honorable professor of surgery of Iowa state have demonstrated his scientific view of the most discussed issue of effective treatment of duodenal atresia within the last decades. We collaborated with him to describe the operation, which is currently named after him, and added original pictures of surgery stages in the form of illustrations made at the time when the anastomosis was created.
