Recurrent gastric volvulus associated with a gastrointestinal stromal tumor: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2019 Mar 30;57:126-129. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Department of Surgery, Iwamizawa Municipal Hospital, 068-8555, Iwamizawa-shi, Japan.

Introduction: Gastric volvulus (GV) is defined as a rotation of the stomach along its short or long axis leading to variable degrees of gastric outlet obstruction. Rotation of the stomach >180° may cause closed loop obstruction and possible strangulation, which often causes acute abdominal pain. Strangulation and gangrene of the twisted stomach sometimes occurs, which demands immediate surgical intervention. Read More

Fetal Primary Small Bowel Volvulus Associated with Acute Gastric Dilatation Detected by Ultrasonography.

Kobe J Med Sci 2019 Jan 11;64(4):E157-E159. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Department of Pediatrics, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe, Japan.

Fetal intestinal volvulus is a rare condition, and fetal diagnosis of this disease is still challenging, especially in primary cases not accompanied by other comorbidities, such as intestinal malformations. Herein, we report a case of fetal primary small bowel volvulus associated with acute gastric dilatation detected by ultrasonography. We speculate that the mechanism of acute gastric dilatation in our case was peristatic malfunction of the whole intestine caused by a strangulated ileus resulting from fetal intestinal volvulus.

Volvulus.

Surg Clin North Am 2018 Oct 31;98(5):973-993. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Division of Trauma, Emergency General Surgery and Critical Care Surgery, Department of General Surgery, University of Nebraska Medical Center, 983280 Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE 68198-3280, USA.

Intestinal volvulus, regardless of location, is a rare disease process, but one that requires high suspicion and timely diagnosis given the increased incidence of intestinal necrosis and potential mortality. Most patients with intestinal volvulus require some form of surgical intervention. However, over the last few decades, the work-up and management of intestinal volvulus has changed given constant advancements in technology and patient care. Read More

Cecal volvulus caused by internal herniation after roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery.

J Surg Case Rep 2018 Sep 11;2018(9):rjy241. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of Surgery, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA.

Cecal volvulus is the rotation of a mobile cecum resulting in a large bowel obstruction. We present the case of a 55-year-old female who underwent a roux-en-y gastric bypass in 2003 and presented to the emergency department with worsening abdominal pain, distention and obstipation. Roentgenogram demonstrated a 14 cm colon suggestive of sigmoid volvulus, but CT scan showed rectal contrast abruptly ending in the distal transverse colon, mesenteric swirling and a distended cecum, consistent with cecal, rather than sigmoid, volvulus.

Department of Paediatrics, KK Women's and Children's Hospital, Singapore, Singapore.

A 10-month-old girl, with spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita and posterior cleft palate had presented at 23 days of life with history of feeding difficulties. A diagnosis of oropharyngeal dysphagia and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease was made, for which she was started on nasogastric tube feeding and oral ranitidine. However, she continued to have poor development of oropharyngeal skills, persistent reflux as well as poor growth and was planned for gastrostomy at 10 months of age. Read More

Intestinal obstruction as a cause of death in the mentally disabled.

Forensic Sci Med Pathol 2019 03 4;15(1):136-139. Epub 2018 Aug 4.

Institute of Forensic Medicine, University of Belgrade - School of Medicine, 31a Deligradska str, Belgrade, 11000, Serbia.

Two cases of intestinal obstruction in the mentally disabled are reported. The first case concerns 61-year-old oligophrenic woman who resided in a nursing home, where she was found hypotensive and unresponsive. Upon opening the peritoneal cavity at autopsy, extremely dilated (measuring on average 12 cm in diameter) loops of the colon emerged- they compressed the small intestine and other intraperitoneal organs, lifting both hemidiaphragms deep into the pleural cavity.
