Primary omental infarction (POI) is a rare cause of acute abdomen. Most patients have aggravating abdominal pain without gastrointestinal symptoms. Here, we report a case of omental infarction in a 50-year-old woman, who had left abdominal pain and intestinal obstruction. Preoperative computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen showed a left ovarian cyst measuring 6.0 cm × 4.5 cm but otherwise seemed normal initially. The white blood cell count was 9.71 × 10(9)/L, and D-dimer was 1.58 mg/L. Laparoscopic exploration was performed 1 day after admission because of peritonitis and intestinal obstruction...

INTRODUCTION: Mesenteric and omental mesothelial cysts are rare, accounting for only 1 in 100,000 hospital admissions for abdominal pain (Tan Jane et al., 2009) [1]. They are often discovered only on CT imaging, which is frequently non-definitive in identifying an exact tissue source owing to overlapping radiographic features with other masses (Stoupis et al., 1994) [2]. The symptoms manifested by such masses are also nonspecific, favoring consideration of more frequently encountered problems in the scope of general surgery over cystic masses in the differential diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (MI) leads to an irreversible loss of proper cardiac function. Application of stem cell therapy is an attractive option for MI treatment. Adipose tissue has proven to serve as a rich source of stem cells (ADSCs). Taking into account the different morphogenesis, anatomy, and physiology of adipose tissue, we hypothesized that ADSCs from different adipose tissue depots may exert a diverse multipotency and cardiogenic potential. METHODS: The omental, pericardial, and epicardial adipose tissue samples were obtained from organ donors and patients undergoing heart transplantation at our institution...

Introduction. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGBP) is a common procedure in obesity surgery. The aim of an antecolic approach is to reduce the rate of internal herniation. Our aim is to make bariatric surgeons aware of another possible complication of antecolic LRYGBP. Methods and Results. We present a case report of omental torsion 24 months after antecolic LRYGBP presenting as an acute abdomen, suggesting appendicitis. During diagnostic laparoscopy, omental infarction due to torsion was observed...

Omental infarction is a rare condition which is being increasingly reported in the literature due to the advancement in imaging techniques and its typical computed tomography appearance. Accurate diagnosis of omental infarct can be made on computed tomography, thereby avoiding exploratory surgery. We report a case of conservatively managed primary omental infarct which was clinically thought to be acute pancreatitis.

Iatrogenic parasitic myomas are rare. The condition is defined by the presence of multiple smooth-muscle tumorous nodules in the peritoneal cavity. This may be attributable to seeding of myoma particles during uterine surgery. The clinical course is usually indolent. The disease is often asymptomatic and is usually discovered only incidentally. A 38-year-old woman who had undergone abdominal myomectomy 7 months prior presented with acute abdominal pain and a huge pelvic mass. We performed exploratory laparotomy...

Omental infarction is an uncommon cause of acute abdomen in the pediatric population. We report a case of a 4-year-old male child with right iliac fossa pain. The final diagnosis was made on ultrasound and computed tomography findings. This entity needs to be differentiated from acute conditions like appendicitis, avoiding surgery.

Unusual pathologies are occasionally found at laparoscopy when appendicitis is suspected. We present a case of strangulated inflammatory fibrous pseudotumour of the omentum presenting in a similar fashion to appendicitis. The infarcted omentum was excised, facilitating prompt resolution of symptoms.

Right lower quadrant pain is one of the most common indications for imaging evaluation of the abdomen in the emergency department setting. This article reviews important imaging findings associated with acute appendicitis as well as major differential considerations including: mesenteric adenitis, Meckel diverticulum, neutropenic colitis, right-sided diverticulitis, epiploic appendagitis, omental infarction, and inflammatory bowel diseaseRight lower quadrant pain is one of the most common indications for imaging evaluation of the abdomen in the emergency department setting...

Primary Segmental Infarction (PSI) of the greater omentum is rare. It usually presents as acute appendicitis and the diagnosis is made per operatively. We report a case of 22 years male who presented with history and clinical features suggestive of acute appendicitis. Laparoscopic appendicectomy was planned but during diagnostic laparoscopic phase, omentum was found infarcted in the right lower abdomen and the appendix was normal. Laparoscopic omentectomy of the infarcted segment was done and the patient had smooth recovery...

INTRODUCTION: The clinico-radiological characteristics and the natural history of postoperative omental infarct (OI) in patients who underwent distal pancreatectomy (DP) and splenectomy have not been defined. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twelve patients who underwent DP over a period of 2 years and were postoperatively diagnosed with OI based on computed tomography (CT) findings were identified. RESULTS: A total of 12 patients were diagnosed with an OI based on their postoperative imaging...

Left-sided omental infarction (OI) is rare in both the adult and pediatric patients. To our knowledge, only 2 pediatric cases of a left-sided OI have been reported in the literature. We report a case of an obese 13-year-old male who presented with a 6-day history of intermittent, colicky, left upper quadrant abdominal pain.

Idiopathic segmental infraction of the greater omentum (ISIGO) is a rare cause of acute abdomen. One of the main symptoms is right-side abdominal pain, while its etiology is still unclear. Until now, ISIGO simultaneously with spontaneous splenic rupture (SSR) has not been reported. Here, we presented a case of a 35-year old man, who was admitted with an acute abdomen, and the clinical diagnosis was ISIGO with SSR. He had a significant previous medical history of the vein thrombosis of lower limbs. Partial omental resection and splenectomy were performed, and the postoperative recovery of the patient was excellent...

It is crucial to realize that both omental infarction and acute appendicitis can occur simultaneously in the children as both diseases are managed differently. Omental infarction itself is rare in the pediatric group, and its association with acute appendicitis is even rarer. Both diseases usually present with right sided abdominal pain. Ultrasound is the choice of imaging modality in the investigation of abdominal pain in the children. It should not be content if omental infarction is detected, whilst the normal appendix is not seen...

The omental infarction is a pathology that occurs more and more in children due to the increased use of imaging studies and the increment in overweigth and obesity. Clinical presentation is characterized by abdominal pain and can be confused with appendicitis, ileitis, adenitis, among other abdominal conditions. Definitive diagnosis requires the performance of radiologic investigations and its treatment may be conservative. We report three cases of omental infarction with different form of clinical presentation, successfully managed conservatively...
