Congenital intestinal obstruction is a condition in which the passage of intestinal masses through the digestive tract is disturbed. The article describes in detail the causes and mechanisms of development, the clinical picture and methods of diagnosis, surgical treatment and the prognosis of intestinal obstruction in newborns Congenital mechanical obstruction of the bowels not due to a developmental defect is so rare a condition that the following case seems worth reporting. Baby, male, 4 days old, first child, normal delivery, no bowel movement since birth. There had been no stain of meconium on the diapers, which had been observed carefully . Diagnosis of SBO has to be suspected even if radiology does not indicate any relevant features. Laparoscopy should be the preferred approach, but if not feasible, then open surgery can resolve the case. KEY WORDS: Adhesions, Congenital bands. Some infants are born with congenital intestinal pseudo-obstruction, and some people develop this condition as adults. Intestinal pseudo-obstruction may be acute, occurring suddenly and lasting a short time, or it may be chronic, or long lasting Although survival in infants with congenital intestinal obstruction has improved, duodenal obstruction continues to present unique challenges. One hundred thirty-eight newborns and infants (aged 0 to 30 days) were treated for congenital duodenal obstruction. Sixty-five were boys and 73 were girls. Sixty-one (45%) were premature
Vomiting, abdominal distension, and failure to pass meconium in the newborn period all suggest the possibility of intestinal obstruction. The cause of the obstruction can be mechanical or functional (Table 418.1); but regardless of the final diagnosis, prompt assessment is essential in order to avoid treatment delays that can have catastrophic consequences for the infant Neonatal intestinal obstruction comprises many conditions, as obstruction may occur at any point in the gastrointestinal tract. [1, 2, 3] Even when restricting one's focus to a single location, several variations of obstruction are possible.The general principles involved in managing intestinal obstruction are the same regardless of the patient population, from the newborn to the geriatric In the case of an intestinal obstruction (ileus), the passage through the small or large intestine is completely interrupted. The preliminary stage of the ileus is called subileus. This is a clinically not yet fully developed intestinal obstruction
Chronic pseudo-obstruction in children is usually congenital, or present at birth. It may also be acquired, such as after an illness. Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction Symptoms. Intestinal obstruction symptoms can vary, and range from mild to severe The prognosis for congenital intestinal obstruction has changed materially since 1927. Prior to this date, authorities were unanimous in predicting an almost uniformly fatal outcome after a brief illness. 1 In view of the fact that previously only 4 patients were known to have survived, this estimate of the mortality was an understatement. Since that date, reports of increasing numbers of. Congenital intestinal malrotation causing gestational intestinal obstruction. A case report. Damore LJ 2nd(1), Damore TH, Longo WE, Miller TA. Author information: (1)Department of Surgery, St. Louis University Health Sciences Center, Missouri, USA. BACKGROUND: Intestinal obstruction in pregnancy is rare During laparotomy, surgeons found the cause of obstruction was a congenital Ladd ligament blocking the duodenum associating with the uncompleted rotation of small bowel. The operation lasted more than one hour. Surgeons resected the Ladd ligament and removed the obstruction, re-organized the small intestine Neonatal bowel obstruction (NBO) or neonatal intestinal obstruction is the most common surgical emergency in the neonatal period. It may occur due to a variety of conditions and has an excellent outcome based on timely diagnosis and appropriate intervention
A congenital adhesion band is a rare condition, but may induce a small bowel obstruction (SBO) at any age. However, only a few sporadic case reports exit. We aimed to identify the clinical characteristics of congenital adhesion band manifesting a SBO stratified by age group between pediatric and adult patients [Long-term results of treatment of children with severe congenital intestinal obstruction]. [Article in Russian] Shapkin VV, Shumov ND, Braev AT. A total of 295 children were operated on for severe ileus. The late outcomes of treating 88 children were studied for some months to 18 years Introduction. Intestinal obstruction is a common surgical emergency in the neonate and occurs in approximately 1 in 2,000 live births. 1 The diagnosis may be suspected prior to the delivery of the infant due to prenatal ultrasound findings, including polyhydramnios and nonvisualization of normally visible fluid-filled structures, such as the stomach in esophageal atresia, or dilation of. volvulus, foreign bodies, strictures, inflammatory bowel disease etc...Obstruction by a congenital band is usually observed in childhood and rarely seen in adults. Congenital bands cause 3% of all intestinal obstruction and almost always lead to small bowel obstruction. In adults, obstruction due to bands is even rarer. An anomalous congenital. Congenital mechanical obstruction of the bowels not due to a developmental defect is so rare a condition that the following case seems worth reporting.Baby, male, 4 days old, first child, normal delivery, no bowel movement since birth. There had been no stain of meconium on the diapers, which had..
. The symptoms of intestinal pseudo-obstruction are caused by a problem in how the muscles (visceral myopathy) and nerves (visceral neuropathy) in the intestines work Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) is a rare, potentially disabling gastrointestinal disorder characterized by abnormalities affecting the involuntary, coordinated muscular contractions (a process called peristalsis) of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Peristalsis propels food and other material through the digestive system under the. The congenital causes of intestinal obstruction in infants and children are intestinal atresia and stenosis, congenital bands, remnants of embryologic structures such as vitelline arteries or veins, omphalomesenteric ducts or a mesourachus.[3 4] In addition abnormal mesenteric fixation can lead to intestinal malrotation with possible midgut. Congenital peritoneal bands are not frequently encountered in surgical practice and these bands are often difficult to classify and define . There have been few series and some case reports in the literature. Congenital Peritoneal bands cause 3% of all intestinal obstruction and almost always lead to small bowel obstruction
INTRODUCTION. Congenital adhesions are infrequent in children and is rare in adults. Ileum is the commonest site of congenital bands, followed by colon, mesentery, omentum, peritoneum, jejunum as well as every site of the gastrointestinal tract, including the abdominal organs and peritoneum .There are no differences in the clinical manifestation and initial work-up of small bowel obstruction. Intestinal obstruction caused by a clamped persistent omphalomesenteric duct in congenital hernia into the umbilical cord. Zlatan Zvizdic. Congenital hernia into the umbilical cord is a type of ventral abdominal wall defect in which the bowel usually herniates into the base of normally inserted umbilical cord through a patent umbilical ring. Anomalous congenital bands are rarely found as causes of intestinal obstruction in children [2,3]. Most congenital bands occur in the small intestine [2,4]. This report presents 1-day-old newborn girl with intestinal atresia due to a congenital band. 2. Observation. A 3600 g, full-term female was born vaginally Haemorrhage, obstruction, and inflammation are considered to be the most frequent complications of Meckel's diverticulum and obstruction can be due to trapping of a bowel loop by a mesodiverticular band, a volvulus of the diverticulum around a mesodiverticular band, and intussusception [3, 4]. In our patient, the cause of obstruction was the.
Intestinal obstruction: examinations and diagnosis. If an intestinal obstruction is suspected, the doctor will ask the patient in detail about his medical history (anamnesis): Among other things, he will ask when the symptoms have been present, where exactly the pain occurs, when the last time stool and intestinal wind came out and whether the patient has had any abdominal surgery Intestinal bands caused by inflammation and surgery in pediatric patients are common and can lead to intestinal obstruction. However, anomalous congenital bands that are not related to abdominal conditions such as laparotomy, trauma, or peritonitis are extremely rare causes of intestinal obstruction in children [ 1 These bands seem to be congenital in origin5, 6 and cause obstruction when the intestine becomes trapped between the band and the mesentery, which can cause an internal hernia. 4 In our review of the literature, we found 16 reported cases in children aged from 2 days to 16 years, 14 male and 2 female, and 19 cases in adults between 17 and 76.
Intestinal obstruction and bleeding are uncommon complications of congenital syphilis (CS). A VDRL-positive infant developed incomplete intestinal obstruction and rectal bleeding. Despite conservative management, his symptoms continued. At laparotomy, terminal ileal inflammation and stenosis were demonstrated. He underwent ileal resection and primary end-to-end anastomosis with resolution of. In conclusion, intestinal obstruction due to congenital bands from vitelline remnants may be diagnosed with sonography and especially with high-frequency sonogra-phy in children. A strangulated small intestine and abnormal arrangement of the adjacent mesentery indicate intestinal obstruction, and a band with a central hyperechoic line an Intestinal obstruction in children is either congenital or acquired, and the evaluation and treatment depend greatly upon which of these etiologies is the cause of the obstruction. If the obstruction is acquired, management is dictated by whether the child has previously had an abdominal operation and, if so, what that operation was
Intestinal obstruction of congenital origin may be due to (1) intrinsic obstruction (atresia and stenosis), (2) neuromuscular defects (primary intestinal aganglionosis), (3) anomalies of rotation and fixation (malrotation, volvulus, internal hernia, congenital bands), (4) intraluminal obstruction (meconium ileus or meconium plugs), (5. Neonatal intestinal obstruction. 1. Most common surgical emergency in neonates. Management depends on timely diagnosis Needs radiological assessment Outcome excellent. 2. Refusal to take feed. Vomitting. Abdominal distention. Delayed/failure to pass meconium
Duodenal obstruction is the second most common site of congenital intestinal obstruction . In the early 1900's very few patients survived high grade congenital intestinal obstruction. Now mortalities are uncommon and when they occur are typically related to the often serious associated congenital anomalies Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) is a rare disorder of gastrointestinal motility where coordinated contractions (peristalsis) in the intestinal tract become altered and inefficient. Motility is the term used to describe the contraction of muscles in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract Duckett (3) reported 6 cases of congenital intestinal obstruction, 5 of which were intrinsic obstructions in the duodenum and small bowel; in 1 case extrinsic obstruction occurred at the duodenojejunal junction. There was no case of large bowel obstruction in this series. Whitaker (2) called attention to the frequency with which congenital.

Maheshwari P, Abograra A, Shamam O. Sonographic evaluation of gastrointestinal obstruction in infants: a pictorial essay 22. 22. 23. Closed loop obstruction • Specific type of small bowel obstruction • secondary to adhesions, a twist of the mesentery or herniation. • Two points of a bowel are obstructed at a single location thus forming a closed loop • Closed loop usually rotates around its axis, forming a small intestinal volvulus. 23 I NTRODUCTION. Paraduodenal hernias (congenital mesocolic hernia, Tritze hernia, and retroperitoneal hernia) are a variety of internal hernias of congenital origin constituting 20%-50% of internal hernias.[1,2] The small intestine, partly or as a whole, herniates into a peritoneal pouch at the fourth part of the duodenum and may remain symptomless or culminate in an obstruction Bowel obstructions are a common pathology, particularly in the western world, that requires early diagnosis and treatment to ensure good outcomes with an overall mortality of 10%.4 Congenital band adhesions a rare cause of intestinal obstruction and were estimated to be responsible for less than 3% of adhesive obstructions in 1955.5 Adhesive. Intestinal obstruction is the commonest surgical emergency encountered in childhood. Intestinal obstruction caused by an anomalous congenital band (ACB) is extremely rare. We report a case of intestinal obstruction in a child due to internal herniation caused by an anomalous congenital band
The most common clinical manifestations of the MDs are gastrointestinal hemorrhage (from the ulcer bed in the ileum close to MD due to continuous secretion of acid by gastric mucosa), intestinal obstruction, and inflammation of diverticulum. There is a 0.5-3.2% chance of finding a tumor in the MD Intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a condition characterized by impairment of the muscle contractions that move food through the digestive tract. The condition may arise from abnormalities of the gastrointestinal muscles themselves (myogenic) or from problems with the nerves that control the muscle contractions (neurogenic) Congenital Intestinal Obstruction: Anorectal Malformations: Imperforate Anus.

Congenital bands represent a rare cause of small bowel obstruction. We report a case of intestinal obstruction caused by an uncommon form of congenital band in a 16-year-old girl. The diagnosis was strongly evoked preoperatively by CT scan and the intestinal obstruction was successfully treated using a laparoscopic approach Congenital anomalies of portovenous system are very rare, and it usually presents with portal hypertension in late infancy or childhood. In this particular child, the portal vein aneurysm contributed to intestinal obstruction due to both a failure of intestinal rotation and a mechanical band over the transverse colon Intestinal pseudo-obstruction describes an intestinal disorder that can mimic intestinal obstruction (blockage of the intestine). However, when tests are performed, no blockage is found. For proper absorption, food needs to move in an orderly way along the intestine
logical. In partial obstruction, such as congenital stenosis of the intestine, vomiting is the first and most striking symptom, while abdominal distension maybeminimal because the intestinal air is able to pass through the stenosis. Investigation of bowel function in the first days of life, that is to say the presence or absence o Intestinal Obstruction: Intestinal Obstruction is defined as a partial or complete blockage of the bowel that results in the failure of intestinal contents to pass through it. ¡ CONGENITAL BANDS, MECONIUM, IMPERFORATED ANUS. Clinical Signs and Symptoms: l Abdominal Pain. l Abdominal distention. l Vomiting Pediatric small bowel obstructions have a variable etiology, with processes that can be divided into acute intestinal obstructions and chronic, partial intestinal obstructions. These conditions can be further subdivided into those that present in the immediate postnatal period (congenital intestinal obstructions) and those that occur later in childhood
Intestinal volvulus, the prototypical closed-loop obstruction, causes torsion of arterial inflow and venous drainage, immediately compromising bowel viability.5, 11, 12 Other causes of closed-loop. Small intestinal atresia is congenital absence of a portion of bowel, or congenital narrowing of the duodenum, jejunum, or ileum, leading to complete luminal obstruction. 3 The incidence of duodenal atresia is 1.80 in 10,000 live births, 4 and there is a strong association of this malformation with chromosomal anomalies, particularly trisomy 21. Other concomitant disorders include cardiac. The differential diagnosis includes congenital intestinal pseudo-obstruction, colonic atresia, Hirschsprung disease, and congenital chloride diarrhea. Hydroureter should be reasonably easy to distinguish from dilated bowel by ultrasound imaging as it can be traced to the bladder or kidney. In some studies, fetal MRI has been reported to be useful
A mechanical bowel obstruction is a partial or complete blockage in the intestine. It can happen at any point along the intestine tract but it is more common in the small bowel. The small bowel is the upper part of the intestines and the large bowel is the lower part. When the bowel is blocked, food and liquid cannot pass through. Over time, food, liquid, and gas build up and cause pressure. Congenital obstruction of the duodenum accounts for nearly one-half of all intestinal obstructions seen in the newborn 1 and is reported to occur once in 2500 to 10 000 deliveries. 2, 3 The.
The term bowel obstruction typically refers to a mechanical blockage of the bowel, whereby a structural pathology physically blocks the passage of intestinal contents.Around 15% of acute abdomen cases are found to have a bowel obstruction.. Once the bowel segment has become occluded, gross dilatation of the proximal limb of bowel occurs, resulting in an increased peristalsis of the bowel Other congenital issues and causes for neonatal bowel obstruction exist as well. Incomplete recanalization of the bowel during development leads to gastrointestinal atresia, meaning there is a luminal stricture or complete absence of a bowel lumen. Duodenal atresia is one example and is associated with Down Syndrome, as in case 2 Experimental evidence indicates that chronic mechanical sub-occlusion of the intestine may damage the enteric nervous system (ENS), although data in humans are lacking. We here describe the first case of enteric degenerative neuropathy related to Intestinal duplications are uncommon, occurring in just 1 in 4500 live births. Males appear to be more commonly affected. About one third of affected children have associated congenital anomalies of the gastrointestinal or urinary tract. Colonic duplication is often associated with anomalies of the urogenital system Short bowel syndrome (SBS, or simply short gut) is a malabsorption disorder caused by a lack of functional small intestine. The primary symptom is diarrhea, which can result in dehydration, malnutrition, and weight loss. Other symptoms may include bloating, heartburn, feeling tired, lactose intolerance, and foul-smelling stool. Complications can include anemia and kidney stones
Enteric neuropathology of congenital intestinal obstruction: A case report Salvatore Cucchiara INTRODUCTIONThe enteric nervous system (ENS), the third component of the autonomic nervous system, plays a crucial role in the control of gastrointestinal functions, including motility, secretion, absorption, blood flow, mucosal growth and aspects of. Defects in Bowel Arrangement. Malrotation is an important entity that clinicians must be aware of when evaluating intestinal obstruction of unknown etiology. Malrotation is a congenital defect typically involving both the small and large intestines that occurs when the bowel assumes an abnormal spatial arrangement within the abdomen
Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a rare disorder that affects the motility of the gastrointestinal tract. It results in acute or subacute intestinal obstruction symptoms in the absence of mechanical lesion. It can lead to intestinal failure in children with significant strain on nutrition, growth, and development. There is no universally agreed protocol for management of chronic. Intestinal Atresia and Stenosis. Intestinal atresia is a broad term used to describe a complete blockage or obstruction anywhere in the intestine. Stenosis refers to a partial obstruction that results in a narrowing of the opening (lumen) of the intestine. Though these conditions may involve any portion of the gastrointestinal tract, the small. Intestinal Obstruction in a Newborn with Congenital Atresia and Volvulus Caused by Hemangioma of the Small Bowel Emerich Elefant, M.D. , Jarmila Jeklerova, M.D. , and Ludmila Le Breux, M.D. Clinical Pediatrics 1970 9 : 5 , 287-28 Small bowel obstruction due to internal herniation of jejunum through a congenital defect in the falciform ligament is a rare occurrence. Literature search shows not more than 14 cases of internal herniation of the small bowel through a congenital defect of the falciform ligament; and there are no reports of challenges faced in the diagnosis of herniation in pregnant patients SOME CASES OF CONGENITAL INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.

A 23-day-old H'Mong boy with congenital duodenal obstruction was miraculously saved life. 19/07/2021 13:57 Cuddled in her mother's breast and enjoyed in sucking cool milk, MUA A N., a less-than-one-month-old baby, has just undergone an operation for his congenital duodenal obstruction in Viet Duc University Hospital Congenital gastrointestinal malformations can cause neonatal intestinal obstruction. Another cause of meconium ileus is cystic fibrosis. Another cause of meconium ileus is cystic fibrosis. Volvulus and midgut malrotations affect children and are uncommon [ 6 ]
Bowel Adhesions. Adhesions are fibrous bands of scar tissue. Many occur secondary to previous surgery or intra-abdominal inflammation (particularly pelvic)*, however they can also be congenital. They are one of the main causes of small bowel obstruction, accounting for around 60% of cases, and are also associated with female infertility and. Bowel obstruction is an emergency and should be detected and managed early to minimize the risk of bowel perforation and strangulation, and the subsequent development of sepsis. The initial management of bowel obstruction is similar to that of undifferentiated acute abdomen INTRODUCTION. Hirschsprung disease (HD) is a motor disorder of the gut, which is caused by the failure of neural crest cells (precursors of enteric ganglion cells) to migrate completely during intestinal development during fetal life. The resulting aganglionic segment of the colon fails to relax, causing a functional obstruction
