INTRODUCTION: Nonocclusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) has been reported to be associated with high mortality. Early diagnosis of NOMI and prompt restoration of the intestinal blood flow is necessary in order to achieve a favorable outcome. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present the case of a patient who developed NOMI after autologous blood collection and was treated by selective infusion of the superior mesenteric artery with papaverine, intestinal decompression using a long intestinal tube, the administration of antibiotics, and fluid replacement...

Failure of duodenal recanalization results in a spectrum of proximal bowel obstruction from stenosis to atresia. Associations between congenital duodenal obstruction and other congenital anomalies have been well documented although the coincidence of duodenal stenosis and duodenal web is incredibly rare, posing a unique diagnostic challenge. We report a case of a full-term 4-day-old female child presented with forceful, bilious emesis and poor oral intake with decreased frequency of urination, and stooling whose initial abdominal radiograph showed several loops of gas-filled bowel in the distal stomach and proximal duodenum mimicking the classic "double-bubble" sign...

Metastatic disease to the small bowel is rare; however, it is important to recognize that when it does occurs a variety of complications are possible including obstruction, gastrointestinal bleeding, intussusception, and bowel perforation. We present here an unusual case of small bowel metastases in a patient with known metastatic liposarcoma in which the lesions manifested as rapidly evolving fat-density masses that necessitated segmental small bowel resection. Careful scrutiny of the small bowel in oncology patients is necessary to guide appropriate treatment and avoid potential catastrophic complications from small bowel metastases...

Ileocolic intussusception due to Burkitt lymphoma is extremely rare in adults. A man aged 17 years presented with a history of recurrent abdominal pain over the past 3 weeks. The abdomen was distended with diffuse tenderness, and bowel sounds were present. Abdominal ultrasound and CT scans showed evidence of small bowel obstruction with marked wall thickening in the ileocecal region and 'target' signs suggestive for intussusception. At laparoscopy, a mass involving the caecum and the terminal ileum was found, along with multiple locoregional nodes, which was highly suggestive of malignancy...

INTRODUCTION: A number of the patients suffer from endometriosis increased in the past decades and the cases have became more serious. The most critical complication of bowel endometriosis is the large bowel obstruction. Up to recently, 16 similar case reports of large bowel endomteriosis causing obstruction, with detailed medical history have been published in the literature in English language. PATIENTS: Since 2007 535 female have been treated in the 1st Gynaecological Department with endometriosis, out of them three patients from emergency surgery in the history because of large bowel obstruction...

BACKGROUND: Accurate documentation of complications is fundamental to clinical audit and research. While it is established that accurate diagnosis of surgical site infection (SSI) requires follow-up for 30 days; for other complications, there are minimal data quantifying their importance between discharge and 30 days. METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, inpatients undergoing general or vascular surgery were reviewed daily for complications by the medical team and a research fellow...

The predominant causes of acute mechanical small bowel obstruction in geriatric patients are adhesions and hernias, which is not much different than in other adult age groups. Unusual etiologies may be encountered, such as volvulus or gallstone ileus, but a displaced feeding gastrostomy tube is a distinctly rare cause of intestinal obstruction which needs to be considered by emergency physicians as it may be increasingly encountered.

AIMS: Hirschsprung disease (HD) is a chronic condition associated with long-term morbidity. We assessed the short and long-term functional outcomes of operated patients in a single institution over a 12-year period. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of all children operated for HD between 2002 and 2014. Postoperative functional outcomes were assessed using the Rintala Bowel Function Score (BFS, 0-20, 20=best score). We assessed hospital admissions, complications including Hirschsprung associated enterocolitis (HAEC) and the need for further surgical procedures...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the nationwide outcome of children with total colonic aganglionosis (TCA) during the last 20years. METHODS: This was an observational, cross-sectional study where all patients with TCA, including aganglionosis of 0-50cm of ileum, born in Sweden 1995-2014 were included. Data were collected from the medical records. Patients >4years old without stoma answered a questionnaire regarding bowel function (bowel function score, BFS, score 1-20), medical treatment and nutrition...

We report a case of an 11-year with recurrent episodes of abdominal pain and vomiting. Diagnostic laparoscopy during a severe episode demonstrated an anomalous blood vessel incompletely encircling the bowel, leading to transient partial small bowel obstruction. This likely represents a remnant vessel from the omphalomesenteric duct. Recurrent abdominal pain and vomiting in the pediatric population requires careful history and physical exam, and a willingness to entertain unusual diagnoses.

Gallstone ileus (GI) is a mechanical obstruction of small or large bowel caused by gallstone passed to the intestinal lumen through spontaneous or postoperative biliodigestive fistula. A 42-year-old female patient was admitted with the clinical presentation of small bowel obstruction. She underwent hepaticojejunostomy 4 years prior to admission for primary sclerosing cholangitis. Barium meal follows through revealed Rigler's triad. The patient underwent laparotomy which revealed GI. A "stone on a suture" was removed through enterotomy...

Early detection of bowel strangulation is difficult in patients with mechanical bowel obstruction (MBO). There have been no previous reports of predicting strangulation in MBO cases using the delta neutrophil index (DNI), which is a measure of the proportion of circulating immature granulocytes, or the myeloperoxidase index (MPXI), which is a measure of serum myeloperoxidase level. Therefore, we evaluated differences in initial DNI and MPXI upon presentation at the emergency department (ED) according to strangulation presence in MBO patients...
