Assessment of Crohn's disease-associated small bowel strictures and fibrosis on cross-sectional imaging: a systematic review.

Gut 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Inflammation and Immunity, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Patients with Crohn's disease commonly develop ileal and less commonly colonic strictures, containing various degrees of inflammation and fibrosis. While predominantly inflammatory strictures may benefit from a medical anti-inflammatory treatment, predominantly fibrotic strictures currently require endoscopic balloon dilation or surgery. Therefore, differentiation of the main components of a stricturing lesion is key for defining the therapeutic management. Read More

Worsening anemia associated with volvulus in a stable neonate with intestinal obstruction.

J Neonatal Perinatal Med 2018 ;11(4):417-422

Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa, Canada.

Intrauterine intestinal obstruction complicated by midgut volvulus is a serious life-threatening diagnosis. Immediate surgical intervention is generally the course of action upon diagnosis to prevent morbidity and mortality. We report a case of intrauterine intestinal obstruction where the neonate then presented with an unusual onset of volvulus within the first 12 hours of life. Read More

1st Department of Pediatric Surgery, Aristotelion University of Thessaloniki, "G. Gennimatas" General Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece;

Duplications of the gastrointestinal tract are rare malformations, most commonly presenting as cystic structures growing within the smooth muscle wall. Very rarely, they are completely detached from the tract. Several theories have been proposed regarding their embryological development, but no single one has been able to account for all of the described variants. Read More

Peritoneal encapsulation - an unexpected cause of acute intestinal obstruction.

J Visc Surg 2017 Sep 5;154(4):303-305. Epub 2017 Jul 5.

Department of General Surgery, Government Medical College and Hospital, Chandigarh, India.

Peritoneal encapsulation (PE) is a rare congenital anomaly that is formed due to an accessory peritoneal layer encapsulating the small bowel. Kinking of bowel within the accessory peritoneal layer or adhesions between the bowel loops and the peritoneal layer causes symptoms ranging from colicky abdominal pain to rarely intestinal obstruction. Cleland was the first person to have reported this condition as early as 1868 and since then only around 30 cases have been reported. Read More

Background: Prenatal small-bowel obstruction can result from single or multiple atresias, and it can be an isolated abnormality or part of a syndrome. It is sometimes the first manifestation of cystic fibrosis. Accurate prediction of the level of obstruction and length of bowel affected can be difficult, presenting a challenge for counseling families and planning perinatal management. Read More

Department of Pediatric Radiology, University Hospital Federico II, Naples, Italy.

Gastrointestinal duplication cyst is a rare congenital anomaly that may occur anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract from the tongue to the anus. Such cysts occur most commonly in the small bowel and about half are in the mesenteric border of the ileum. Such cystic duplications communicate only rarely with the intestinal lumen although the cysts are attached to the intestine and may even share a common wall with the adjacent alimentary tract.

Comparative Effectiveness of Imaging Modalities for the Diagnosis of Intestinal Obstruction in Neonates and Infants:: A Critically Appraised Topic.

Acad Radiol 2016 May 5;23(5):559-68. Epub 2016 Feb 5.

Department of Radiology, St. Vincent's University Hospital, Elm Park, Merrion Rd, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Rationale And Objectives: The purpose of this study was to critically appraise and compare the diagnostic performance of imaging modalities that are used for the diagnosis of upper and lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract obstruction in neonates and infants.

Methods: A focused clinical question was constructed and the literature was searched using the patient, intervention, comparison, outcome method comparing radiography, upper GI contrast study, and ultrasound in the detection of upper GI tract obstruction such as duodenal atresia and stenosis, jejunal and ileal atresia, and malrotation and volvulus. The same methods were used to compare radiography and contrast enema in the detection of lower GI tract obstruction such as meconium plug syndrome, meconium ileus, Hirschsprung disease, and imperforate anus.

Department of Surgery, St Elisabeth Hospital, Willemstad, Curaçao.

The simultaneous occurrence of a Meckel's diverticulum and a patent urachus is very uncommon. We describe the occurrence and surgical treatment of Meckel's diverticulum and an urachal anomaly in a 1-year-old boy. The patient had intermittent production of clear fluid from the patent urachus, which disappeared after surgical resection. Read More
