Pediatric emergency gastrointestinal ultrasonography: pearls & pitfalls.

Clin Imaging 2020 Aug 13;64:103-118. Epub 2020 Mar 13.

University of Maryland Medical Center, Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, 22 South Greene Street, Baltimore, MD 21201, United States.

Ultrasonography is an essential tool in pediatric imaging, particularly in the emergency setting. Although ultrasound is often the favored initial modality for abdominal imaging in children, it is highly operator-dependent and therefore prone to misinterpretation which can lead to false positive or negative exams, or even incorrect diagnoses. Conditions discussed in this series include ileocolic intussusception, hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, appendicitis, and ingested foreign bodies. Read More

Gastrointestinal bleeding as a result of entero-iliac fistula due to intestinal foreign body.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2020 May 1;53:20-22. Epub 2020 Apr 1.

Department of Surgery, San Salvatore Hospital. Department of Biotechnological and Applied Clinical Sciences, University of L'Aquila, Italy.

Ingested toothpicks are a relatively rare event, but they may cause serious gut injuries and can be listed among rare causes of perforation, peritonitis, sepsis or death. Unless the foreign bodies were intentionally swallowed, many patients who ingested them fail to remember the event and they do not refer it during the medical history collection; this makes diagnosis problematic. In this work, a case of perforation of the sigmoid colon is described, caused by a toothpick ingestion. Read More

Ingested Foreign Body Imaging Using Point-of-Care Ultrasonography: A Case Series.

Pediatr Emerg Care 2019 Nov;35(11):807-810

From the Department of Emergency Medicine.

The ingestion of foreign bodies is a common problem in the pediatric population. Emergent treatment of ingested foreign bodies is dependent on the type of foreign body ingested, patient symptoms, timing of ingestion, and the location of the foreign body. Although X-ray and computed tomography are the imaging techniques used most often to assess for foreign bodies, ultrasonography, which lacks ionizing radiation, may also be useful. Read More

Feline abdominal ultrasonography: What's normal? What's abnormal? The diseased gastrointestinal tract.

Authors:
Sally Griffin

J Feline Med Surg 2019 11;21(11):1047-1060

Radiology Department, Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service, Highlands Road, Shirley, Solihull B90 4NH, UK.

Practical Relevance: Abdominal ultrasound plays a vital role in the diagnostic work-up of many cats presenting to general and specialist practitioners. B-mode ultrasonography is likely the most widely used modality for imaging the gastrointestinal (GI) tract in cats and it can help in the diagnosis of GI masses, foreign bodies and disorders of the ileocaecocolic junction.

Clinical Challenges: Despite ultrasonography being a commonly used modality, many practitioners are not comfortable performing an ultrasound examination or interpreting the resulting images. Read More

Percutaneous Interventional Radiology-Operated Endoscopy for Foreign Body Removal.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2019 Sep 2;22(3):149-153. Epub 2019 May 2.

Department of Radiology, Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA.

Image-guided retrieval of endovascular devices such as inferior vena cava filters, guidewires, and stents is well reported, though there is a paucity of published reports on biliary, genitourinary, or gastrointestinal foreign body retrieval utilizing percutaneous endoscopy, particularly when it is performed solely by interventional radiologists. In cases of failed traditional endoscopic techniques or to evade more invasive surgical options, percutaneous endoscopy can be an adjunctive tool employed by interventional radiologists to extract foreign bodies. In this article, clinical evaluation, perioperative management, and procedural techniques for biliary, genitourinary, and gastrointestinal endoscopy for foreign body retrieval are reviewed.

[Cases of migration of swallowed foreign bodies from the gastrointestinal tract].

Orv Hetil 2019 Oct;160(42):1677-1681

I. Sebészeti Klinika, Semmelweis Egyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Budapest, Üllői út 78., 1082.

Migration of swallowed foreign bodies from the gastrointestinal tract is a rare phenomenon compared with the total number of ingestions. In the reported two cases, the serious septic condition indicated urgent surgical intervention. We found a piece of wire swallowed a few months earlier in the right lobe of the liver and the retroperitoneum in case one, and a piece of wire in the pericardium, which migrated from the stomach through the left lobe of the liver, in case two.

An Unexpected Case of Perforated Acalculous Cholecystitis Caused by a Fish Bone.

J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2019 Sep 1;28(3):355-358. Epub 2019 Sep 1.

General Surgery Department, Colțea Clinical Hospital, Bucharest, Romania; Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania.

Gallbladder inflammation is most often determined by the presence of gallstones. Acalculous cholecystitis usually occurs in patients with multiple comorbidities or with an immunosuppressed status, and therefore its evolution is faster and more severe compared to acute calculous cholecystitis. The presence of a fish bone into the peritoneal cavity, through a gastrointestinal fistula is not very rare, but acute cholecystitis caused by a fish bone is unexpected. Read More

Department of Surgery, Kaohsiung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, No.123, Dapi Rd., Niaosong Dist., Kaohsiung City, 833, Taiwan, Republic of China.

Background: Foreign body ingestion is a scenario occasionally encountered in the emergency room. Pediatric and psychiatric patients are the two most common populations suffering from accidental or in some cases intentional ingestion of foreign bodies. Commonly, majority of cases require no specific treatment and the swallowed objects pass through the digestive tract spontaneously without causing any significant complications. Read More
