PURPOSE: Postoperative ileus (POI) is a frequent complication after abdominal surgery; nonetheless, it remains poorly defined. Our aim was to achieve an international consensus among leading colorectal surgeons on definition, prevention, and treatment of POI. METHODS: Thirty-five experts from five continents participated in a three-round Delphi process. Round 1 contained open-ended questions on POI and postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). Round 2 included closed-ended questions...

We reported a case of tracheal agenesis (TA) that was diagnosed during surgery. A female infant, weighing 1,104 g, was born at the 29 weeks of gestation. She showed severe respiratory distress without crying. Oxygenation was improved by mask ventilation, but tracheal intubation was very difficult. Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) was suspected because significant amount of air from nasogastric tube was noticed. Physical examination and X-ray findings suggested Gross E type TEF, duodenal atresia and cloaca. On the second day of life, ligation of TEE gastrostomy and colostomy were scheduled...

The knotting of an intragastric tube is a rare complication, and knotting of a feeding jejunostomy tube is rarer, and the removal or replacement of the tube is difficult. There are many reports on the removal of intragastric knotted tubes, but these methods cannot be applied for the removal of knotted feeding jejunostomy tubes, which do not have a natural orifice as large as the mouth to facilitate the introduction of instruments to correct the complication or remove the knotted tube. This is a stressful situation and doctors have to adopt strategies to resolve this problem safely and effectively in the absence of strong evidence-based knowledge...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to establish whether 15-Fr gauge percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tubes can be safely removed by "cut and push." METHODS: Patients were prospectively recruited who were found to be without significant intestinal dysfunction requiring removal of Freka (Fresenius Kabi) 15-Fr gauge PEG tubes. The PEG tube was cut close to the stoma and the remnant pushed into the gastric lumen with a 14-Fr nasogastric tube. Patients were asked to observe their stool for the remnant...

Nasogastric tube insertion is a routine procedure in medical care. However, misplacement of the tube can cause a variety of complications, which can be life threatening in some instances. We report a case of fatal hemorrhagic shock immediately after nasogastric tube insertion in a patient undergoing debridement by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for mediastinitis. Emergency endoscopy showed that the bleeding came from the nasogastric tube which had perforated the esophagus and possibly tore an intrathoracic large vessel...

OBJECTIVE: We report the results of a multicenter prospective trial of early enteral trophic feeding in a group of 56 neonates who required abdominal surgery for a variety of congenital anomalies. METHODS: In this clinical study, 33 neonates were fed in the early postoperative period (early enteral nutrition [EEN] group), and the remaining 23 (control [C] group) were fasted until resolution of postoperative ileus. Patients in the EEN group (Kocaeli feeding protocol) received 3 to 5 mL of breast milk every hour through a nasogastric feeding tube, starting a mean of 12 h (8 to 20 h) after surgery...

Strongyloides hyperinfection syndrome may be complicated by paralytic ileus that interferes with the absorption of oral anti-helminthics. We report on the administration of ivermectin as a rectal enema preparation to a renal transplant recipient with Strongyloides hyperinfection syndrome and progressive ileus. Attempts at treatment using nasogastric albendazole and ivermectin were unsuccessful despite clamping the nasogastric tube after drug administration. Ivermectin tablets were ground to a powder, resuspended in a commercially available suspending agent, and administered per rectum...

A forty-three-day-old infant was intubated by the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) staff. A nasogastric tube was in place for the duration. The patient's vital signs remained stable during 12 h of positive pressure ventilation. A Broviac catheter placement was scheduled in the NICU. The position of the tracheal tube (TT) was not verified prior to induction of anaesthesia. After the induction, the patient's condition deteriorated. The TT was found to be positioned within the oesophagus. A near catastrophe was successfully averted by discovering the malpositioned TT and replacing it with a properly positioned TT...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic surgery decreases postoperative pain, shortens hospital stay, and returns patients to full functional status more quickly than open surgery for a variety of surgical procedures. This study was undertaken to evaluate laparoscopic techniques for application to abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair. METHODS: Twenty patients who had AAAs that required a tube graft underwent laparoscopically assisted AAA repair. The procedure consisted of transperitoneal laparoscopic dissection of the aneurysm neck and iliac vessels...

Nasogastric decompression following abdominal aortic aneurysmectomy or bypass, for 3-4 days, is a routine part of postoperative care in many centers. A prospective randomized study of 80 patients undergoing abdominal aortic surgery was performed in order to determine the necessity of prolonged nasogastric decompression. Patients were divided evenly between removal of the nasogastric tube upon tracheal extubation and retention of the tube until the passage of flatus. Preoperative risk factors, aortic cross-clamp time, estimated blood loss, length of procedure, length of intensive care unit stay, numbers of days with nasogastric tube, number of days until clear liquid and regular diets commenced, and the length of hospital stay were recorded for all patients...

Considering the current wide use of antimicrobial agents, the general internist is commonly faced with the patient at risk for diarrhea due to C. difficile. The diagnosis should be considered for any patient with diarrhea who has received any type of antibiotic therapy in the preceding 4-6 weeks. Symptoms may range from a minor bout of diarrhea to fulminant and fatal colitis. Diagnosis usually requires demonstration of the toxin in stool; culture of the organism and fiberoptic endoscopy may play an adjunctive role in selected clinical settings...

UNLABELLED: A 6 year old boy was admitted to ICU because of severe polytrauma. He was ventilated for 4 weeks using a nasotracheal tube (high-volume-low-pressure cuff) and fed by nasogastric tube for 6 weeks. After this time severe haemorrhage from the oesophagus occurred, caused by an oesophago-aortic fistula. Bleeding could be stopped by a Sengstaken-Blakemore-tube. The child died during emergency thoracotomy as a result of ventricular fibrillation after clamping of the aorta. Autopsy revealed a malformation of the aortic arch (type II B 4a according to Kirklin and Clagett 1950)...
