#1
A Greger, W Hamelmann, M Konermann
A 67-year-old man suffering from epigastric pain showed a phytobezoar in the endoscopy. Therapy with Coca Cola® and enzymes was initiated. The (partial) lysis led to a migration of the bezoar into the ileum, resulting in a small bowel obstruction. After removal of the remaining bezoar via ileotomy a secondary pneumatosis intestinalis occurred. As a rare finding the (phyto-)bezoar should be considered as a differential diagnosis of abdominal pain - especially considering the rising numbers of bariatric surgery, which is a potential risk factor...

We report a case of a 10-month-old girl who presented with a 10-day history of emesis that became bilious on the last day. The initial evaluation suggested small bowel obstruction. An upper gastrointestinal study confirmed the normal location of the duodenojejunal junction with normal rotation and no evidence of midgut volvulus. Ultrasound (US) evaluation demonstrated two intraluminal lesions that do not follow the typical features of solid or cystic lesions. Two rubber balls were found at surgery to be responsible for the small bowel obstruction...

The objective of this experiment was to evaluate the effects of starter supplementation with fat sources differing in their fatty acid (FA) profile on performance of dairy calves during cold season. Sixty Holstein calves (3 d of age; 39.7 ± 3.8 kg of body weight) were randomly assigned to 1 of 5 starter diets supplemented with (1) no fat or oil source (control), (2) 3% palm fat (PLF), (3) 3% soybean oil (SBO), (4) 3% tallow (TAL), and (5) a 3.2% mixture (MIX) of PLF, SBO, and fish oil. The fat supplements were substituted for corn in the basal starter diet...

BACKGROUND: Bochdalek hernias (BHs) are usually diagnosed in the neonatal period, occurring in 1/2200-1/12,500 live births. There are few reported cases of BHs in adults. Robotic repair has not been described in current literature as opposed to the laparoscopic approach. Here we present a case of an adult with clinical signs of bowel obstruction secondary to a BH which was repaired using a robotic approach. CASE REPORT: A 74-year-old gentleman with past medical history of benign prostatic hyperplasia presented to the emergency department with a 1-week history of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and decline in appetite...

We present an unusual and rare complication caused by gastric band erosion into the stomach after band placement 15 years ago. The complication was only picked up after the band had subsequently migrated from the stomach at the site of erosion, to the distal ileum causing acute small bowel obstruction and focal perforation requiring emergency laparotomy.Abdominal pain in patients with gastric band should always be treated as serious until proven otherwise.

AIMS: The rePOT (proximal optimizing technique) sequence proved significantly more effective than final kissing balloon (FKB) with two drug-eluting stents (DES) in a bench test. We sought to experimentally validate efficacy in a large range of latest-generation DESs. METHODS AND RESULTS: On left main fractal coronary bifurcation bench models, 5 samples of each of the 6 main latest-generation DESs (Coroflex Isar™, Orsiro™, Promus Premier™, Resolute Integrity™, Ultimaster™, Xience Xpedition™) were implanted on rePOT (initial POT, side-branch inflation, final POT)...

When performing laparoscopic gastrectomy, suturing the intestinal anastomosis presents one of the greatest challenges. The V-Loc unidirectional barbed suture has been introduced to eliminate the need to tie knots during closure. This device offers a fast, secure, and effective alternative to conventional suture repair during laparoscopic surgery. However, there have been reported cases of surgical complications associated with the use of barbed suture devices. We describe here a case of small bowel obstruction resulting from improper use of barbed suture during total laparoscopic distal gastrectomy performed for gastric cancer...

Although large bowel obstruction (LBO) is less common than small bowel obstruction, it is associated with high morbidity and mortality due to delayed diagnosis and/or treatment. Plain radiographs are sufficient to diagnose LBO in a majority of patients. However, further evaluation with multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) has become the standard of care to identify the site, severity, and etiology of obstruction. In this comprehensive review, we illustrate the various causes of LBO emphasizing the role of MDCT in the initial diagnosis and detection of complications along with the tips to differentiate from disease which can mimic LBO...

The present video shows the laparoscopic management of an acute small bowel obstruction (ASBO) after a Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGBP), due to the development of an intraluminal hemobezoar involving the jejuno-jejunostomy (j-j). On the first postoperative day (POD), the patient presented persistent abdominal pain, sense of fullness, nausea, and vomiting with traces of blood. The abdominal tube drained a small amount of serous fluid, while blood tests revealed a mild leukocytosis and a slight decrease of the hemoglobin...

BACKGROUND: A 54-year-old morbidly obese woman with a small bowel obstruction and large ventral hernia was admitted to hospital. She underwent an exploratory laparotomy, lysis of adhesions, and ventral hernia repair with mesh placement. She subsequently developed an enteroatmospheric fistula; several months of hospital care was required to effectively manage the wound and contain effluent from the fistula. METHODS: Several approaches were used to manage output from the fistula during her hospital course...

Lawrence Hayes, Charlotte Newton
Internal hernias comprise 1% of hernias, 8% of which are through the foramen of Winslow into the lesser sac. These hernias can mimic gastric outlet obstruction and cause associated morbidity. In this case, we describe a caecal herniation into the lesser sac presenting as true gastric outlet obstruction in a 69-year-old female. Initial computed tomography (CT) imaging demonstrated a distended stomach with collapsed small bowel representing likely gastric outlet obstruction. Nasogastric tube insertion decompressed the stomach but the clinical picture progressed to that of small bowel obstruction with generalized abdominal distension and hypoactive bowel sounds...

Internal herniation following laparoscopic surgery is rare. We present a case of small bowel obstruction secondary to internal herniation in a 76-year-old male patient. Presentation was on postoperative day 28 following transperitoneal laparoscopic radical left nephrectomy for suspected renal carcinoma. The herniation was through a defect in the large bowel mesentery identified at exploratory laparotomy. To date, 10 cases of internal herniation following laparoscopic nephrectomy have been described in the literature...

ST-segment elevation is an important and alarming electrocardiographic sign that necessitates immediate attention but does not always indicate that the primary pathology is cardiac in origin. It needs to be interpreted in the clinical context as several pathological conditions involving especially gastrointestinal tract may lead to delayed diagnosis and treatment as well as complications from invasive unnecessary interventions. We present two patients, a 64-year-old male and a 71-year-old female, who were admitted to the emergency room of a community-based hospital with similar complaints of worsening epigastric abdominal pain and were diagnosed later with small bowel obstruction...

We describe a case of ischemia complicating acute small-bowel obstruction in which retrospective on-demand spectral analysis using dual-layer spectral detector computed tomography (CT) provided a higher degree of confidence pertaining to the diagnosis. Dual-layer spectral detector CT enables retrospective on-demand spectral analysis, including virtual monochromatic imaging, iodine mapping, and determining the effective atomic number Z, without the need of a pre-scan setting requiring a special protocol, particularly facilitating emergency situations...

The objective of this study is to analyze the physical properties of 2.5% (wt. basis) binary wax in soybean oil (SBO) system. Differential scanning calorimetry, pulsed nuclear magnetic resonance, rheology, and polarized light microscopy were used to measure melting profiles, solid fat content, viscoelastic parameters, and crystal morphology, respectively. Binary blends were prepared using beeswax (BW), rice bran wax (RBW), and sunflower wax (SFW) in 0, 20, 50, 80 and 100% proportions. Melting behavior of binary waxes was significantly affected by the type and proportion of wax used...

Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis (SEP) is a rare disorder that is characterized by encapsulation of bowel loops by thick fibrinogenous case. Most patients present with vague abdominal symptoms. It is challenging to diagnose the condition preoperatively. Surgical management is preserved for patients with small bowel obstruction with no improvement on conservative measures or for those with signs of bowel ischemia (Li et al., 2014; Habib et al. 2011). Herein, we discuss the clinical signs and symptoms, the radiological features, the surgical management, and outcome of SEP based on a patient who underwent surgery in our hospital...

Intramural haematoma is a rare complication of oral anticoagulant therapy, occurring in  1 in 2500 patients treated with warfarin. This report describes a 71-year-old gentleman who presented with tachycardia, vomiting and abdominal distension on a background of anticoagulation for a metallic aortic valve. He was found to have a supratherapeutic international normalized ratio (INR) of 9.9 with an extensive small bowel intramural haematoma and secondary small bowel obstruction. He was successfully managed non-operatively with fluid resuscitation, INR reversal, bowel rest and nasogastric decompression...

Intussusception in adults lacks specific symptoms and is often diagnosed emergently when they present with obstruction. Though intussusception certainly varies in size and location, the increased likelihood of ischemia or obstruction make large intussusceptions very rare in the literature. A patient admitted to our facility for small bowel obstruction was found to have extensive intussusception from the right lower quadrant to the splenic flexure, where a lead point was identified. Histopathology revealed multiple satellite lesions surrounding the lead point tumor, which was found to be invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma of the ileocecal valve...

We present a case of male patient, who was referred to our department because of acute intestinal obstruction, which was the initial clinical symptom of primary lung cancer. The abdominal computed tomography (CT) prior to the emergency operation showed small intestinal obstruction and metastases to both adrenal glands. The patient underwent an emergency abdominal exploratory laparotomy, that confirmed small bowel obstruction and diffuse metastatic lesions along the entire small bowel length. During the operation we took a sample of one metastasis for pathological examination and we created an intestinal bypass to relieve small bowel obstruction...
