Cecal bascule with secondary gastric outlet obstruction in addition to a large bowel closed obstruction: A case report.

Radiol Case Rep 2021 Jun 14;16(6):1469-1472. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Radiology Department, Hospital Universitario Marqués de Valdecilla, Avda Valdecilla sn 39008, Santander, Spain.

We present a case of cecal bascule in a 60-year-old woman with abdominal pain and vomiting. Imaging tests revealed a cecal bascule causing mechanic obstruction of the stomach. Besides a small bowel dilatation was not seen, the distended cecum was extrinsically obstructing the antrum and therefore, the gastric outlet. Cecal bascule is a form of cecal volvulus without the axial twisted component. The cecum folds anterior or anteromedially on itself and, because of a valve mechanism, becomes distended. The pressure increases and it begins to compromise arterial blood flow so life-threatening complications, such as bowel ischemia and infarction can occur. Prompt diagnosis is therefore crucial and plain radiographs and computed tomography are the preferred imaging techniques for this purpose.

Imaging in pancreas transplantation complications: Temporal classification.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2018 May 28. Epub 2018 May 28.

Department of Radiology, Hospital Universitario Marqués de Valdecilla, Santander, Spain.

Pancreatic transplantation is a therapeutic option for both poorly controlled cases of diabetes mellitus and patients with advanced diabetic nephropathy. It is important for radiologists to know the different surgical techniques as well as the typical radiological appearance after pancreatic transplantation, in order to accurately identify the complications. These complications can be classified according to the period of time after the transplantation in which they typically occur: immediate (first 24 hours), early (24-72 hours), intermediate (72 hours to weeks) and late (months). An accurate and early diagnosis of pancreas transplantation complications is essential to start the adequate treatment and increase the chances of graft survival.

Imaging Findings of Duodenal Duplication Cyst Complicated with Duodenal Intussusception and Biliary Dilatation.

Case Rep Radiol 2016 17;2016:3069576. Epub 2016 Feb 17.

Department of Radiology, Marqués de Valdecilla University Hospital, Santander, Spain.

Duodenal duplication cyst is an extremely rare congenital anomaly usually diagnosed in childhood. However, it may remain asymptomatic for a long period. In adults it usually manifests with symptoms related to complications as pancreatitis, jaundice, or intussusception. We present the radiology findings of a patient with a duodenal intussusception secondary to a duplication cyst. The usefulness of the magnetic resonance (MR) in this case is highlighted.
