Radiology Department of Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, UKM. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Gastric volvulus is an uncommon disorder with an unknown incidence, unless it stays in the back of the diagnostician's mind, diagnosis of gastric volvulus, which can have significant morbidity and mortality associated with it, can be easily missed and can present either in the acute or chronic setting with variable symptoms. When it occurs in the acute scenario, patients present with severe epigastric pain and retching without vomiting. Together with inability to pass nasogastric tube, they constitute Borchardt's triad.

Case Report: Late-Presenting Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia With Tension Gastrothorax.

Front Pediatr 2021 14;9:618596. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Train and Help Babies Organization, Dallas, TX, United States.

A congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs when the abdominal contents protrude into the thoracic cavity through an opening in the diaphragm. The main pathology lies in the maldevelopment or defective fusion of the pleuroperitoneal membranes. Delayed diagnosis in later childhood as in the index case reported here can lead to life-threatening complications such as tension gastrothorax and gastric volvulus. Read More

Exp Clin Transplant 2021 Apr 16. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

From the the Intestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Center, Starzl Transplantation Institute, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Current therapeutic options with prokinetic agents for posttransplant gastroparesis are limited. Erythromycin is associated with adverse reactions, including corrected QT interval prolongation and cytochrome P450 3A4 isoenzyme inhibition. The use of erythromycin has been avoided in patients undergoing treatment with cyclosporine or tacrolimus because of significant fluctuations in therapeutic immunosuppression levels. Read More

Transversus abdominis muscle as a gastric or intestinal on-lay flap in two dogs and one cat.

M Simpson J L Hall

J Small Anim Pract 2021 Feb 18. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Wear Referrals Veterinary Hospital, Bradbury, Stockton-on-Tees, TS212ES, UK.

Historically, omentalisation and serosal patching have been used to augment gastrointestinal wall defects or incisions where gastrointestinal viability is of concern. This report describes the novel use of a transversus abdominis muscle on-lay flap to augment and provide support to compromised intestine in three cases. The muscle flap was used to support: the ileum following reduction of an intussusception in a dog (case 1), the gastric wall following gastric strangulation, dilation and volvulus in a diaphragmatic rupture in a cat (case 2) and the jejunum following enterotomy and full-thickness ulcer resection with primary repair in a dog (case 3).

The Effect of Pet Insurance on Presurgical Euthanasia of Dogs With Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus: A Novel Approach to Quantifying Economic Euthanasia in Veterinary Emergency Medicine.

Front Vet Sci 2020 8;7:590615. Epub 2020 Dec 8.

Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, Melbourne Veterinary School, University of Melbourne, Werribee, VIC, Australia.

Euthanasia of companion animals in veterinary emergency medicine is a common cause of death. Euthanasia is economic when it is the consequence of the pet owner's inability to afford essential treatment while a viable medical alternative to euthanasia exists. Gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) is an acute life-threatening emergency condition of dogs; if left untreated, rapid death is highly likely. Read More
