Endoscopic versus Surgical Intervention for Jejunal Bezoar Formation.

ACG Case Rep J 2018 5;5:e87. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatobiliary Diseases, New York Medical College, Westchester Medical Center, Valhalla, NY.

Bezoar-induced small bowel obstruction is a rare entity, but it should be highly suspected in those with prior abdominal or bariatric surgery. The cornerstone of treatment for intestinal bezoars has been surgical exploration to relieve the obstruction. We present a patient with obstructive jejunal phytobezoar formation that was relieved via an endoscopic approach rather than a surgical modality. Read More

Laparoscopic versus open adhesiolysis for adhesive small bowel obstruction (LASSO): an international, multicentre, randomised, open-label trial.

Lancet Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Abdominal Surgery, University of Helsinki and Helsinki University Hospital, Helsinki, Finland.

Background: Although laparoscopic adhesiolysis for adhesive small bowel obstruction is being done more frequently, it is not widely accepted due to the lack of supporting evidence of its superiority over an open approach and concerns regarding its benefits. We aimed to investigate whether laparoscopic adhesiolysis was a superior treatment for adhesive small bowel obstruction compared with an open approach in terms of length of postoperative hospital stay and morbidity.

Methods: In this international, multicentre, parallel, open-label trial, we randomly assigned patients (1:1) aged 18-95 years who had adhesive small bowel obstruction that had not resolved with conservative management to have either open or laparoscopic adhesiolysis. Read More

Comparative pathophysiology and management of protein-losing enteropathy.

J Vet Intern Med 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Minnesota, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Protein-losing enteropathy, or PLE, is not a disease but a syndrome that develops in numerous disease states of differing etiologies and often involving the lymphatic system, such as lymphangiectasia and lymphangitis in dogs. The pathophysiology of lymphatic disease is incompletely understood, and the disease is challenging to manage. Understanding of PLE mechanisms requires knowledge of lymphatic system structure and function, which are reviewed here. Read More

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, The Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan.

The importance and frequency of invasive fungal infections in different organs, including the gastrointestinal tract, has increased due to excessive use of aggressive immunosuppressive and immunomodulatory drugs in malignant diseases and organ transplantations as well as increased infections with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Fungal infections in the small intestine or colon are usually part of a disseminated disease process and reach these organs through the bloodstream. Two of the patients were infants 10 and 15 days of age, while one was 23 years old. Read More

We present a case of a 69-year-old male with a history of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and asymptomatic duodenal diverticulum diagnosed with small bowel obstruction. CT imaging showed an obstruction distal to the jejunojejunostomy, and surgical intervention was warranted. Read More

Clinical and CT findings of small bowel obstruction caused by rice cakes in comparison with bezoars.

Jpn J Radiol 2019 Jan 16. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine, 1-4-3 Asahi-cho, Abeno-ku, Osaka, Osaka, 545-8585, Japan.

Purpose: Rice cakes have not been recognized as a cause of small bowel obstruction (SBO) worldwide. We compared clinical and CT findings of rice cake SBO versus SBO due to bezoars, the most common cause of food-induced SBO.

Methods: Twenty-four patients with rice cake SBO (n = 17) or bezoar SBO (n = 7) were retrospectively evaluated for clinical findings and the following multi-detector CT (MDCT) features: identification of the transition zone, presence of intraluminal lesions, degree of obstruction, and length and attenuation of obstructing materials.

Meckel's enterolith : a rare cause of mechanical small bowel subobstruction.

Acta Gastroenterol Belg 2018 Oct-Dec;81(4):534-537

Department of Gastroenterology, AZ Klina, Brasschaat, Belgium.

Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital gastrointestinal malformation and may present with bleeding, obstruction and diverticulitis. Symptomatic Meckel's diverticulum is associated with age <50 years, male gender, diverticular length > 2 cm and ectopic mucosa. Formation of enteroliths is a rare complication of Meckel's diverticulum and the majority of stones will remain in the diverticulum. Read More

Malignant gastrointestinal neuroectodermal tumor (clear cell sarcoma-like tumor of the gastrointestinal tract) of the small intestine in a 12-year-old boy.

Dev Period Med 2018 ;22(4):358-363

Department of General Pathomorphology, Medical University of Białystok, Białystok, Poland.

The aim of this paper is a clinical and anatomopathological demonstration of a malignant lesion, a gastrointestinal neuroectodermal tumor (GNET), as an exceedingly rare cause of ileus in the pediatric population. Specifically, we present the case of a 12-year-old boy who showed dramatic weight loss, hypochromic anemia, fever, dehydration, exaggerated granulation of the terminal ileum, and mechanical ileus due to the obstruction by an intramural tumor of the small intestine. A 50cm-long part of the small intestine with pathological stricture was surgically removed, sampled and routinely fixed and stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Read More

Outcomes in Adhesive Small Bowel Obstruction from a Large Statewide Database: What to Expect after Non-Operative Management.

J Trauma Acute Care Surg 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Trauma Service, Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego, California.

Background: Although adhesive small bowel obstruction (ASBO) is frequently managed non-operatively, little is known regarding outcomes on readmission following this approach. Using a large population-based dataset, we evaluated risk factors for operative intervention and mortality at readmission in patients with ASBO who were initially managed non-operatively.

Methods: ASBO patients were identified in the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development 2007-2014 patient discharge database. Read More

Small bowel obstruction due to internal hernia through sigmoid epiploica.

J Surg Case Rep 2019 Jan 8;2019(1):rjy342. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Section of Burns and Trauma, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, and Department of Surgery, Georgetown University School of Medicine.

Internal hernia is a rare cause of small bowel obstruction; even more rare is one that occurs through a sigmoid epiploica defect. There have been only two previously reported cases from this etiology, but both were without the advantage of high-resolution imaging. We report the first color representation of this pathology, along with the first video recording of the internal hernia reduction. Read More
