Role of single-incision laparoscopic surgery in the management of small bowel obstruction.

Surg Endosc 2020 May 28. Epub 2020 May 28.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Osaka Police Hospital, 10-31 Kitayama-cho, Tennoji-Ku, Osaka City, Osaka, 543-0035, Japan.

Background: Small bowel obstruction (SBO) arises on various backgrounds, and the surgical procedure is often modified intraoperatively as needed. Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is less invasive than conventional multiport laparoscopic surgery (MPS) and reported to be equally safe and efficient. We have been applying SILS to SBO requiring surgical treatment, and we conducted a retrospective study to clarify the role of SILS in the management of SBO. Read More

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alexandria, Egypt. Electronic address:

Introduction: Acute intrathoracic gastric volvulus occurs when the stomach undergoes organoaxial rotation in the chest due presence of a diaphragmatic defect. Gastric volvulus associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia is extremely rare and can be explained as 2 of the 4 ligaments supporting the stomach (gastrophrenic and gastrosplenic) which are connected to the left diaphragm may become elongated or absent. According to the current literature, only 27 pediatric cases have been reported so far. Read More

Ultrasound Signs in the Diagnosis and Staging of Small Bowel Obstruction.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2020 May 3;10(5). Epub 2020 May 3.

Department of Radiology, Ospedale del Mare-ASL NA1 Centro, 80147 Naples, Italy.

Ultrasound (US) is highly accurate in the diagnosis of small bowel obstruction (SBO). Because the indications for and timing of surgical intervention for SBO have changed over the past several decades, there is a widespread assumption that the majority of patients with simple SBO may be conservatively managed; in this scenario, staging SBO is crucial. This study evaluated the association between morphological and functional US signs in the diagnosis and staging (simple, decompensated and complicated), and the associations and prevalence of US signs correlated with clinical or surgical outcome.

ACR Appropriateness Criteria® Suspected Small-Bowel Obstruction.

J Am Coll Radiol 2020 May;17(5S):S305-S314

Specialty Chair, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, Richmond, Virginia.

Small-bowel obstruction is a common cause of abdominal pain and accounts for a significant proportion of hospital admissions. Radiologic imaging plays the key role in the diagnosis and management of small-bowel obstruction as neither patient presentation, the clinical examination, nor laboratory testing are sufficiently sensitive or specific enough to diagnose or guide management. This document focuses on the imaging evaluation of the two most commonly encountered clinical scenarios related to small-bowel obstruction: the acute presentation and the more indolent, low-grade, or intermittent presentation.

Acute Intestinal Infarction Due to Diffuse Jejunoileal and Mesenteric Lipomatosis in a 39-Year-Old Woman.

Am J Case Rep 2020 Apr 29;21:e922830. Epub 2020 Apr 29.

Department of General Surgery, Fundeni Clinical Institute, Bucharest, Romania.

BACKGROUND Although lipomas are common benign tumors of adipose tissue, diffuse lipomas involving the small bowel, large bowel, and mesentery are rare. Multiple non-encapsulated lipomas characterize diffuse intestinal and mesenteric lipomatosis. Intestinal lipomatosis can be asymptomatic or may result in complications such as intussusception, volvulus, intestinal obstruction, or hemorrhage due to mucosal ulceration. Read More

SMA syndrome: management perspective with laparoscopic duodenojejunostomy and long-term results.

Surg Endosc 2020 Apr 27. Epub 2020 Apr 27.

Department of Surgical Gastroenterology and Minimal Invasive Surgery, Santokba Institute of Digestive Surgical Sciences, Santokba Durlabhji Memorial Hospital and Medical Research Center, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.

Background: Superior mesentery artery syndrome (SMAS) is a rare vasculo-anatomic occlusive pathologic entity for which a period of conservative medical management is advocated with surgery reserved for nonresponsive cases. We present our management plan that entails a single admission approach and complete rendering of medical and surgical treatment to the patient on a background of the socioeconomic and cultural trends prevalent in this geographic region.

Methods: A retrospective analysis of 22 cases of SMAS admitted in our health care system who underwent a period of preoperative conditioning followed by laparoscopic duodenojejunostomy from September 2009 to June 2019 was performed. Read More

Incarcerated Spigelian Hernias: A Rare Cause of a High-grade Small Bowel Obstruction.

Cureus 2020 Mar 24;12(3):e7397. Epub 2020 Mar 24.

General Surgery, Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, USA.

A Spigelian hernia is a very rare hernia, making up approximately 0.1% of all abdominal wall hernias. This hernia goes through a defect in the Spigelian fascia which is the part of the transversus abdominis aponeurosis lateral to the rectus muscle, often at the level of the arcuate line, where the fascia is widest and weakest.

Laparoscopic paraduodenal hernia repair with bioabsorbable mesh: A case of a novel technique for a rare cause of bowel obstruction.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2020 Apr 4;70:1-4. Epub 2020 Apr 4.

Department of Surgery, Redcliffe Hospital, Anzac Avenue, Redcliffe, QLD, Australia.

Introduction: Paraduodenal hernias are the most common type of internal hernia but a rare cause of bowel obstruction. Given the high risk of incarceration, obstruction and associated mortality, surgical repair is recommended.

Presentation Of Case: We present a novel technique for laparoscopic repair of paraduodenal hernia using biosynthetic mesh to reinforce suture closure of the hernia defect. Read More
