Bowel perforation is a rare complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, which if left undiagnosed can have fatal consequences. In addition, isolated small bowel perforation is extremely rare and should be considered in patients presenting with sudden onset abdominal pain in the postoperative period. A 57-year-old male with symptomatic gallstones underwent urgent laparoscopic cholecystectomy and was discharged home on postoperative day (POD) 1 without complications. He presented to the emergency department on POD 11 complaining of sudden onset abdominal pain...

BACKGROUND: Injury to the abdomen can be blunt or penetrating. Abdominal injury can damage internal organs such as the liver, spleen, kidneys, intestine, and large blood vessels. There are controversies about the best approach to manage abdominal injuries. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of surgical and non-surgical interventions in the management of abdominal trauma in a haemodynamically stable and non-peritonitic abdomen. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Injuries Group's Specialised Register, The Cochrane Library, Ovid MEDLINE(R), Ovid MEDLINE(R) In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations, Ovid MEDLINE(R) Daily and Ovid OLDMEDLINE(R), EMBASE Classic+EMBASE (Ovid), ISI WOS (SCI-EXPANDED, SSCI, CPCI-S & CPSI-SSH), CINAHL Plus (EBSCO), and clinical trials registers, and screened reference lists...

Most patients presenting with acute right sided peritonitic pain are diagnosed and managed as acute appendicitis. In a series of 336 patients, eight were found to have caecal diverticulitis. The occurrence of such diverticula appears to be more frequent in Asian populations. The diagnosis can be established at operation on the basis of surgical findings. The aim of this retrospective review is to discuss the management of such patients when acute diverticulitis is found at the time of appendicectomy. It is advocated that management be conservative where possible, with appendicectomy and antibiotics...

A series of 138 (1.3 per cent) re-laparotomies, performed for diverse complications subsequent to abdominal interventions, are reviewed. The lethality rate is rather high. Eighty-five patients died which makes 61.5 per cent those undergoing re-operation. Complications demanding re-laparotomy are divided up into five groups. Group I includes hemorrhage a/ in the lumen of the digestive canal and b/ in the abdominal cavity. Group II - postoperative peritonitis. It includes perforative, circumscribed and diffuse peritonitis without perforations, and due to suture insufficiency, as well as to necrosis of the pancreas and biliary peritonites...
