Ileosigmoid knotting: One of the largest single-center series.

Pak J Med Sci 2018 May-Jun;34(3):671-675

Prof. Sabri Selcuk Atamanalp, MD. Department of General Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Ataturk University, Erzurum, Turkey.

Ileosigmoid knotting (ISK) is the wrapping of the ileum or sigmoid colon around the base of the other structure, causing a double-loop intestinal obstruction. The disease generally presents as an intestinal obstruction with volvulus triad, including abdominal pain/tenderness, distention, and obstipation. Abdominal X-ray findings are not pathognomonic, and computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are more useful in the diagnosis. Read More

Department of General Surgery, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Jiaxing University, Jiaxing, Zhejiang, China (mainland).

BACKGROUND Sigmoid volvulus (SV) is a life-threatening condition occasionally seen in adults. Adult Hirschsprung's disease (HD)-related SV is rarely complicated by difficult-to-control hypertension. In this report we present the case of an elderly man with a rare constellation of HD, SV, and refractory hypertension. Read More

Left Upper-Quadrant Appendicitis in a Patient with Congenital Intestinal Malrotation and Polysplenia.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Apr 16;19:447-452. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

Body Imaging Section, Department of Diagnostic Radiology, University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine, San Juan, Puerto Rico.

BACKGROUND Appendicitis is the most common cause of abdominal pain requiring emergent surgical intervention. Although typically presenting as right lower-quadrant pain, in rare cases it may present as left upper-quadrant pain secondary to abnormal position due to intestinal malrotation. Since atypical presentations may result in diagnostic and management delay, increasing morbidity and mortality, accurate and prompt diagnosis is important. Read More

Fetal sigmoid colon mesentery - In relevance in fetal ultrasound application. A pilot study.

Ann Anat 2018 Mar 29;216:152-158. Epub 2017 Dec 29.

Department of Human Morphology and Embryology, Division of Anatomy, Wroclaw Medical University, ul. Chalubinskiego 6a, 50-368 Wroclaw, Poland.

Introduction: Ultrasound examinations during pregnancy are routine procedures used to detect fetal congenital malformations. Ultrasound monitoring of sigmoid colon mesenterial development could be useful for early detection of subjects at risk of sigmoid colon volvulus.

Objective: The aim of our paper was to assess the sigmoid colon length, and sigmoid colon mesentery width and height in the late fetal period, and, using the results, to estimate the surface area of the mesocolon (in mm) in living fetuses. Read More

Chilaiditi syndrome complicated by a sigmoid volvulus and hepatic displacement.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2018 Mar;110(3):195-196

Servicio de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital Universitario La Paz, España.

Chilaiditi's sign is an anatomical alteration consisting of the transposition of the small intestine or colon between the liver and diaphragm that is asymptomatic and is usually an accidental radiological finding. The onset of Chilaiditi syndrome is accompanied by clinical symptoms and is even rarer. Moreover, the combination of sigmoid volvulus and Chilaiditi syndrome is extremely rare, with only 17 previous published cases, one of which occurred in a female patient. Read More

Sigmoid volvulus in children: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2017 Nov 7;11(1):286. Epub 2017 Nov 7.

Department of Pathology, Salmaniya Medical Complex, Manama, Bahrain.

Background: Sigmoid volvulus is frequently reported in the "volvulus belt" (Middle East, Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Turkey, and South America) and is the third leading cause of large bowel obstruction in North America. It is an uncommon problem in children and adolescents, and is rarely considered a diagnosis in this group. A high index of suspicion is necessary to diagnose sigmoid volvulus in children. Read More

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2017 Apr;109(4):306-308

UGC Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitario Virgen del Rocío.

Background: Colonic obstruction is a relatively common condition in emergency care, with a mortality rate of up to 20%. In 90% of cases it results from colonic or rectal adenocarcinoma, volvulus, or stenosis secondary to diverticular disease. When fecal impaction is the underlying cause, the condition is usually managed conservatively, but may on occasion become complicated and even require surgical intervention. Read More

Synchronous colorectal cancers refer to the simultaneous occurrence of multiple colorectal tumors in a single patient, excluding any metastases from other organs. At present, radical surgery is considered the standard curative treatment; however, individualized surgical strategies depend on tumor location, the depth of invasion and the general health of the patient.

A case of fatal sigmoid volvulus visualized on postmortem radiography: The importance of image optimization with multidetector computed tomography.

This report describes the case of a man who developed fatal sigmoid volvulus that was identified on postmortem radiography before forensic autopsy. Postmortem radiography is useful for visualizing the body prior to autopsy. We discuss postmortem multidetector computed tomography that was tailored for optimum image quality to allow reconstruction of the fatal findings in multiple axes and in three dimensions, helping to pinpoint the anatomical sites of interest.

Sigmoid volvulus in a patient with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS): a rare occurrence.

Mitochondrial diseases are rare and devastating, with a wide spectrum of clinical presentations and systemic symptoms. The majority of the published literature focuses on the neuromuscular manifestations and genetic components of this mitochondrial cytopathy, however, cardiac, renal, endocrine and gastrointestinal manifestations may also be present. The authors report a case detailing a 56-year-old woman's final hospitalisation from the gastrointestinal sequelae of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) (Co Q10 deficiency variant).

Synchronic volvulus of splenic flexure and caecum: a very rare cause of large bowel obstruction.

Department of Clinical Surgical Sciences, University of the West Indies, St Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago.

Colonic volvulus involving the caecum and splenic flexure of the colon is an extremely rare surgical entity and, as a result, it is rarely entertained as a differential diagnosis for large bowel obstruction. The most common site of volvulus is located at the sigmoid colon (75%) followed by caecum (22%). Rare sites of colonic volvulus include the transverse colon (about 2%) and splenic flexure (1-2%).

Department of Radiology, Hospital Universitario de A Coruña, A Coruña, Spain.

Wandering spleen is a rare condition, characterized by a mobile spleen that is attached only by an elongated vascular pedicle, allowing it to migrate to any part of the abdomen or pelvis. Mesenteroaxial gastric volvulus usually occurs in children and may be associated with wandering spleen. Both entities result from abnormal laxity or absence of the peritoneal attachments due to abnormal fusion of the peritoneal mesenteries. Read More
