BACKGROUND: Bouveret's syndrome is a gastric outlet obstruction due to a gallstone impacted in the duodenal lumen or in the stomach via a bilioenteric fistula. It's the rarest form of gallstone ileus, with few cases reported in medical literature. Typically, this condition affects elderly people and causes high morbidity and mortality rates. METHODS: We present a review of the published cases of Bouveret's syndrome between 2006, year of publication of the largest case series, and 2015 with particular regard to the operative management and treatment options...

Background: Gallstone ileus (GI) represents a rare cause of mechanical intestinal occlusion, which is caused by the impaction of a gallstones at the gastrointestinal tract, being most frequently the terminal ileum; its etiology is due to the passage of a calculum through a biliary-enteric fistula. Due to its low incidence, diagnostic suspicion and adequate initial surgical treatment are essential for an adequate clinical evolution. Objective: A bibliographic review on the current surgical management of GI was carried out and exemplified by the presentation a clinical case...

Bouveret's syndrome, first described in 1896, is an unusual cause of gastric outlet obstruction secondary to large gallstone impaction in the proximal duodenum after migration through a cholecystoduodenal fistula. Stone migration has been previously described after endoscopic or surgical fragmentation. However, this is the first reported case, in our knowledge, where the stone migrated after oral contrast administration a few days after the onset of symptoms, causing a distal gallstone ileus.

Introduction: Gallstone sigmoid ileus is a rare although serious complication of cholelithiasis resulting in large bowel obstruction. The condition accounts for 4% of all gallstone ileus patients. There are no recognized management guidelines currently. Management strategies range from minimally invasive endoscopy and lithotripsy to substantial surgery. We aim to identify trends when managing patients with gallstone sigmoid ileus to help improve outcomes. Methods: Literature searches of EMBASE, Medline and by hand were conducted...

INTRODUCTION: Gallstone ileus is an uncommon condition of mechanical bowel obstruction caused by the passage of a gallstone into the bowel. It occurs more frequently in female patients older than 65 years and often for a biliary-enteric fistula. The pathognomonic features of gallstone ileus - the Rigler's triad - are pneumobilia, ectopic gallstone and bowel obstruction. Less commonly, a gallstone may enter the intestinal lumen through the common bile duct, after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and very rarely in colecistectomized patient...

Bouveret's syndrome is a rare cause of proximal gallstone ileus with obstruction of duodenum or gastric outlet. We report a case of an 87-year-old female patient presented with 1 week history of vomiting whose plain radiograms showed ileus and pneumobilia. The abdominal computed tomography confirmed pneumobilia and revealed free air and leakage of oral contrast agent in the hepatic hilum and subhepatic space and an impacted gallstone in the third portion of the duodenum. The patient underwent exploratory laparotomy, which showed that the duodenal perforation was circumvallated, and a side-to-side retrocolic gastrojejunal anastomosis was performed in order to surpass the impacted gallstone...

INTRODUCTION: Gallstone ileus (GI) is characterized by a mechanical occlusion of the ileal lumen as a result of migration of one or more gallstones in the intestinal tract. Less than 1-4% of all cases of intestinal obstruction are derived from this etiology (1,2,3). CASE REPORT: We present a case of small intestinal obstruction owing to a large gallstone in lower ileum in a 66 years old woman. The diagnosis was made by computed tomography, and treated successfully with an enterotomy, with a removal of a 5 cm gallstone, carried out through a longitudinal incision on the antimesenteric border...

Gallstone ileus is a rare cause of bowel obstruction, which mainly affects the elderly population. The associated mortality is estimated to be up to 30%. The presentation of gallstone ileus is notoriously non-specific, and this often contributes to the delay in diagnosis. The diagnosis of gallstone ileus relies on a radiological approach, and herein we discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the use of different modalities of radiological imaging: plain abdominal films, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound scanning...

RATIONALE: Gallstone ileus is a rare complication of cholecystolithiasis. It has a female predominance and can result in high mortality rates. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 71-year-old woman complaining of recurrent vomiting and vague epigastralgia for > 2 weeks presented to our department. DIAGNOSIS: Based on her physical examination, laboratory test results and radiographic findings (the typical Rigler's triad), she was diagnosed with gallstone ileus caused by multiple ectopic stones...

Gallstone ileus is a rare disease that accounts for 1-4% of intestinal obstructions. Almost exclusively a condition in the older female population, it is a difficult diagnosis to make. We report the case of gallstone ileus in a 94-year-old Caucasian female, who presented to the emergency department with acute-onset nausea, coffee-ground emesis, lack of bowel movement, and abdominal distension. On CT scan, the diagnosis of gallstone ileus was made by the presence of a cholecystoduodenal fistula, pneumobilia, and small bowel obstruction...

Common complications of biliary lithiasis are cholecystitis, bile duct lithiasis, and acute biliary pancreatitis. Gallstone ileus is uncommon complications often requiring surgical approach. It is a mechanical bowel obstruction caused by a biliary calculus usually originating from a bilioenteric fistula. Because of the limited number of reported cases, the optimal surgical method of treatment has been the subject of ongoing debate. A retrospective, observational, descriptive study was conduct on patients diagnosed with non-neoplastic bowel occlusion...

Gallstone ileus is a rare aetiology of bowel obstruction and very infrequently occurs in the colon. Typically, colonic gallstone ileus carries a high morbidity and mortality and requires surgery. This case report describes a cholecystocolonic fistula in a patient with ulcerative colitis with resulting colonic gallstone ileus, which was successfully intervened on via an endoscopic approach.

AIMS/INTRODUCTION: Gallstone sigmoid ileus is a rare condition that presents with symptoms of large bowel obstruction secondary to a gallstone impacted within the sigmoid colon. This arises because of three primary factors: cholelithiasis causing a cholecystoenteric fistula; a gallstone large enough to obstruct the bowel lumen; and narrowing of the bowel. We describe 3 patients treated in a district general hospital over a 3-year period, and discuss their management. METHODS: Cases were retrospectively analysed from a single center between 2015 and 2017 in line with the SCARE guidelines...

Bile ileus with migration of the gallstone into the colon through cholecystocolonic fistula is rare. The diagnosis is difficult and often late. We here report the case of a 89-year old patient with a history of sigmoid diverticular disease presenting with colonic obstruction associated with bile ileus caused by migration of a large gallstone through cholecystocolonic fistula. Abdominal CT scan allowed the diagnosis. The patient underwent surgical extraction of the gallstone with sigmoidotomy followed by sigmoidostomy with subsequent recovery of the digestive continuity...
