Diagnosis and surgical management of congenital intestinal malrotation presenting with midgut volvulus in an adult: high index of suspicion (case report).

Pan Afr Med J 2018 15;29:154. Epub 2018 Mar 15.

University of Botswana, Department of Library Services, Gaborone, Botswana.

Congenital intestinal malrotation is a gastrointestinal anomaly whose most serious complication is midgut volvulus. More commonly, it presents as an incidental finding at laparotomy, or as a finding on diagnostic imaging (Ultrasound, CT, Upper GI contrast study). Most patients are diagnosed in childhood.

Case report of intestinal non-rotation, heterotaxy, and polysplenia in a patient with pancreatic cancer.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Dec;96(49):e8599

aDepartment of SurgerybDepartment of Gastroenterology, SUNY Stony Brook, Stony Brook, NY.

Rationale: Heterotaxy with polysplenia is an extremely rare congenital condition resulting from abnormal arrangement of organs in the abdominal and thoracic cavities during embryologic development. When a malignancy such as pancreatic cancer develops under these conditions, surgical resection becomes particularly complex. This case report demonstrates successful pancreatic cancer resection despite the patient's complicated anatomy. Read More

Utility of CT Findings in the Diagnosis of Cecal Volvulus.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2017 Oct 4;209(4):762-766. Epub 2017 Aug 4.

1 Department of Radiology, NYU Langone Medical Center, 660 First Ave, 3rd Fl, New York, NY 10016.

Objective: The objective of our study was to assess the utility of CT features in the diagnosis of cecal volvulus.

Materials And Methods: Forty-three patients undergoing CT for cecal volvulus and with surgical or clinical follow-up were included. Two radiologists (11 years and 1 year of experience) evaluated CT examinations for the following: whirl sign, abnormal cecal position, "bird beak" sign, severe cecal distention, mesenteric engorgement, a newly described "central appendix" sign (defined as abnormal appendix position near midline), and overall impression for cecal volvulus.

Identifying intestinal malrotation on magnetic resonance examinations ordered for unrelated indications.

Pediatr Radiol 2017 Oct 16;47(11):1477-1482. Epub 2017 Jun 16.

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Montefiore Medical Center, 111 E. 210th St, Bronx, NY, 10467, USA.

Background: Anatomical imaging findings indicating normal bowel rotation can be identified on cross-sectional imaging, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed for non-related indications.

Objective: The goal of our study was to assess whether non-targeted MRI can accurately assess intestinal malrotation.

Materials And Methods: Four anatomical landmarks were assessed on MRIs of the chest, spine or abdomen performed from January 2006 to June 2014, on patients who also had upper gastrointestinal series (UGI) performed within 10 years of the MRI date: 1) retroperitoneal duodenum, 2) left upper quadrant duodenojejunal junction, 3) superior mesenteric artery to the left of the superior mesenteric vein, and 4) right lower quadrant cecum.

Laparoscopic Management of Mobile Cecum.

JSLS 2016 Oct-Dec;20(4)

Department of Internal Medicine, Therezinha de Jesus University Hospital, Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences of Juiz de Fora (SUPREMA), Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Background And Objectives: The mobile cecum is an embryologic abnormality and has been associated with functional colon disease (chronic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome). However, unlike functional disease, the primary treatment is operative, using laparoscopic cecopexy. We compare the epidemiology and pathophysiology of mobile cecum syndrome and functional colon disease and propose diagnostic and treatment guidelines. Read More

Cecal Volvulus Following Elective Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Case Report.

J Nippon Med Sch 2016 ;83(4):172-6

Cecal volvulus is characterized by torsion of the cecum around its own mesentery. However, cecal volvulus rarely develops soon after elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We report on a case of cecal volvulus that developed in a 54-year-old women 1 day after elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy and was successfully treated via colonoscopic decompression. Read More

Unlabelled: Internal abdominal hernias present an infrequent surgical diagnosis and are usually encountered accidentally during surgery. They are generally considered as an extremely rare cause of ileus. In our article we present the case of a 69-year-old healthy female who was operated for suspected gastric volvulus as suggested by the CT scan; however, upon surgery, herniation of the right-sided colon into the omental bursa with subsequent cecal dilation and bowel wall necrosis was revealed to be the true culprit.

Synchronic volvulus of splenic flexure and caecum: a very rare cause of large bowel obstruction.

BMJ Case Rep 2016 Jan 18;2016. Epub 2016 Jan 18.

Department of Clinical Surgical Sciences, University of the West Indies, St Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago.

Colonic volvulus involving the caecum and splenic flexure of the colon is an extremely rare surgical entity and, as a result, it is rarely entertained as a differential diagnosis for large bowel obstruction. The most common site of volvulus is located at the sigmoid colon (75%) followed by caecum (22%). Rare sites of colonic volvulus include the transverse colon (about 2%) and splenic flexure (1-2%).

Introduction: Colonic volvulus is the third leading cause of the colonic obstruction with cecal volvulus accounting for approximately 40% of all colonic volvulus. Lack of peritonealization of the right colon, adhesions from prior surgery, colonic atony, and distal colonic obstruction are potential risks factors for the development of cecal volvulus.

Gastrointestinal volvuli cause processes that manifest as acute abdomen. Volvuli are important not because they are common, but rather because their possible complications can be severe. All types of volvuli share a common pathophysiology, which consists of intestinal obstruction in a closed loop that results in ischemia. Read More

Left-sided appendicitis due to malrotation is a rare condition with an atypical presentation. We report a history of a 31-year-old man who had four days of right-sided abdominal pain, moving across lower abdomen and tenderness in both right and left side on examination. A computed tomography revealed intestinal malrotation and inflammation of the appendix, which was placed from a caecum in left fossa to across the abdominal midline. Read More
