Primary repair of cornual rupture occurring at 21 weeks gestation and successful pregnancy outcome. (1/299)

The successful delivery in a 31 year old woman at 33 weeks gestation is reported, after repair to a cornual rupture which occurred at 21 weeks gestation. The patient exhibited acute abdominal pain and pending shock. Emergency laparotomy showed a cornual rupture and an intrauterine vital fetus having intact amnion membrane. On the patient's family's insistence, primary repair for a cornual rupture was performed and preservation of the fetus attempted. Postoperatively, tocolytic agent with ritodrine hydrochloride was administered and close follow-up of the patient was uneventful. The patient had a smooth obstetric course until 33 weeks gestation when premature rupture of the membranes occurred, soon followed by the onset of labour. She underwent an elective Caesarean section and delivered a normal male fetus weighing 2140 g with Apgar scores at 1, 5 and 10 min of 6, 8, and 9 respectively. Because of this successful outcome, we suggest that primary repair for such an unusual patient should be accepted.  (+info)

Pelvic abscess in the second half of pregnancy after oocyte retrieval for in-vitro fertilization: case report. (2/299)

We describe a very late manifestation of pelvic abscesses after oocyte retrieval for in-vitro fertilization (IVF). In a twin pregnancy achieved after intracytoplasmic sperm injection, rupture of bilateral ovarian abscesses occurred at the end of the second trimester. An emergency laparotomy was necessary because of an acute abdomen. This complication led to severe maternal and neonatal morbidity, preterm birth and neonatal death. The rare occurrence of acute abdomen in pregnancy due to pelvic infection and the non-specific symptoms of a pelvic abscess after oocyte retrieval for IVF are discussed.  (+info)

Neutrophil activation in sickle cell disease. (3/299)

Vascular occlusion is the main cause of the morbidity and mortality observed in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD). Increasing evidence indicates that (activated) neutrophils could play an important role in the initiation and propagation of vaso-occlusive processes in SCD. In this study, the activation state of neutrophils in sickle cell patients was analyzed by determining the level of expression of neutrophil antigens such as CD62L, CD11b, CD66b, CD63, and Fcgamma receptors. We also analyzed plasma levels of lactoferrin, elastase, soluble (s)CD16 (sFcgammaRIII), and serum levels of soluble (s)CD62L (sL-selectin) as neutrophil activation markers in these patients. Significant differences were observed in the activation state of neutrophils in non-symptomatic sickle cell patients compared to healthy HbAA controls as exemplified by significant decrease in L-selectin expression, enhanced expression of CD64, and increased levels of soluble markers like sL-selectin, elastase, and sCD16. During vaso-occlusive crisis the differences were even more pronounced. These results show neutrophils to be activated in sickle cell patients, suggesting a role of importance in the pathophysiology of sickle cell disease.  (+info)

The aim of this article is to evaluate the role of videolaparoscopy in non-traumatic acute abdomen as a method of diagnosis and treatment. METHODS: Between January 1992 and December 1996, 462 patients' charts were reviewed, retrospectively. Patients were admitted to the emergency room of Sao Rafael Hospital with symptoms of non-traumatic acute abdomen. Routine investigation of abdominal pain was performed in all patients, followed by videolaparoscopy. The laparoscopic procedures were done with four main purposes: diagnosis (ie, enteritis); diagnosis and treatment (ie, appendicitis); treatment only, when the diagnosis was known (ie, acute cholecystitis); and in cases where the conversion to conventional laparotomy was necessary, indicating the best incision. RESULTS: The vast majority of patients had inflammatory causes of acute abdomen (82.03%); others causes were hemoperitoneum (11.03%), bowel obstruction (3.25%), perforation of a hollow viscera (1.74%), vascular occlusion (1.3%), and negative laparoscopy (0.65%). CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that laparotomy was necessary in only 7.14% of the patients. The videolaparoscopic approach was used for diagnosis (99.35%) and treatment (92.86%) of patients with acute abdomen.  (+info)

Measurement for breath concentration of hydrogen and methane in horses. (5/299)

This study concerns the establishment of a simple testing method for breath concentration of hydrogen and methane in horses. Twenty-eight healthy thoroughbreds and 24 Arabians were used. Breath samples were collected using one-minute closed circulatory respiration through an aluminum bag filled with 10 liters of pure oxygen, which was mounted on the subjects by means of a face mask. Breath samples obtained, were analyzed by gas chromatography. A significant correlation in both hydrogen and methane levels was observed for samples collected at separate times. These findings confirmed the usefulness of our approach for testing breath concentrations of hydrogen and methane in horses.  (+info)

Survey of surgical emergencies in a rural population in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. (6/299)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence of specific surgical emergencies in a mountainous rural community in the Northern Areas of Pakistan and to assess use of existing health services, and outcomes related to acute surgical illness events. METHOD: A cross-sectional population-based survey was conducted. Interviewers visited each of 118 villages in the study area (population 100000), selected a random sample from a total of 9900 households, and interviewed the oldest premenopausal female member (n = 836). Questions were focused on injury, acute abdomen, and/or maternal morbidity occurring in the past year. Cases were included as surgical emergencies when one or more index clinical features indicating a potential for surgical intervention were present. Mortality from a wider range of surgical emergencies was also elicited based on the respondent's lifetime knowledge of the household. RESULTS: The incidence rates were 1531/100000 persons per year for injuries; 1364/100000 for acute abdomen, and 16462/100000 for maternal morbidity. The rate of injuries was 2.7 times higher and that of acute abdomen twice as high in males as in females. The injury rate decreased with advancing age, being 13 times higher in children < 5 years than in adults > 40. By contrast, the rate for acute abdomen showed a rise with advancing age, being 8 times higher in the > 40 age group than in under-fives. Burns, falls and road accidents, in that order, were the commonest forms of injury accounting for 82% of 138 cases. Of 43 burn casualties, 46% were in the age group < 5 years; there was no gender bias. Of 71 casualties from falls and road accidents, 85% were aged 6-40 years; there was 6 : 1 male predominance. The maternal morbidity rate was highest in the age group 25-35 years and may be attributed to the high pregnancy rate in this age bracket. Of 408 patients with acute surgical illness, 85% were managed initially at home or close to home in a health centre, dispensary or civil hospital; 32% eventually sought specialist surgical care. The overall rate for minor and major surgical procedures was 411/100000 persons per year (lowest estimate), and appeared to be low. The rate of operative deliveries at 11.8/1000 deliveries (lowest estimate) was particularly low. The mortality rates were correspondingly high: 55/100000 persons per year for injuries and for acute abdomen (lowest estimates). The maternal mortality ratio was particularly high at 8.9/1000 deliveries (lowest estimate). Annual mortality rates derived from deaths recalled during the respondent's lifetime in the household (mean period = 26 years), tended to corroborate the results of the 1-year survey. CONCLUSION: The incidence rates for broad categories of serious acute surgical illness in the study population far exceeded the rates of acute surgical intervention. Mortality rates were correspondingly high. Such evidence points to a large unmet surgical need and ought to spur improvements in the health service.  (+info)

Hemoperitoneum is an initial presentation of recurrent granulosa cell tumors of the ovary. (7/299)

Ovarian sex cord-stromal tumors account for less than 5% of all ovarian carcinoma, of which granulosa cell tumors account for 70%. These tumors have a propensity for indolent growth and late recurrence; they may even occur 25 years after initial treatment. We report a 44-year-old woman with hemoperitoneum (acute abdomen) after initial treatment 10 years earlier for granulosa cell tumor of the ovary. This case re-emphasizes the need for long-term follow-up in patients with stromal cell tumors of the ovary and considers the possibility of recurrence when presented with acute abdomen after conservative treatment.  (+info)

A British family with herediatary pancreatitis. (8/299)

A family with hereditary pancreatitis is described. Nine family members definitely have had pancreatitis, whilst 15 more are suspected of having the disease. The condition presents as recurrent attacks of epigastric or central abdominal pain, sometimes radiating to the back, often associated with vomiting. The attacks of pain usually last three to four days. The inheritance fits well with an autosomal dominant pattern with limited penetrance, as it does in other families described in the literature. There is no aminoaciduria as has been described in some previously reported families. The attacks of pain start in childhood or young adult life (mean age of onset inthis family is 12-6 years) and appear to cease in this family by the age of 40 years. The diagnosis of pancreatitis in members of the family who have had confirmed pancreatitis was made by finding a raised serum amylase concentration in four cases, at laparotomy in four cases, and by pancreatic calcification seen on radiography in one case, The literature on the condition is reviewed, and it is speculated that the condition may have been underdiagnosed in Britain.  (+info)

An acute abdomen refers to a sudden, severe abdominal pain. It is in many cases a medical emergency, requiring urgent and specific diagnosis. Several causes need surgical treatment. The differential diagnoses of acute abdomen include but are not limited to: Acute appendicitis Acute peptic ulcer and its complications Acute cholecystitis Acute pancreatitis Acute intestinal ischemia (see section below) Acute diverticulitis Ectopic pregnancy with tubal rupture Ovarian torsion Acute peritonitis (including hollow viscus perforation) Acute ureteric colic Bowel volvulus Bowel obstruction Acute pyelonephritis Adrenal crisis Biliary colic Abdominal aortic aneurysm Familial Mediterranean fever Hemoperitoneum Ruptured spleen Kidney stone Sickle cell anaemia Acute abdomen is occasionally used synonymously with peritonitis. While this is not entirely incorrect, peritonitis is the more specific term, referring to inflammation of the peritoneum. It manifests on physical examination as rebound tenderness, or ...
Posted on 2017-06-27 in Diagnostic Imaging and Emergency & critical care. The acute abdomen is a common presentation in emergency veterinary medicine. The term acute abdomen refers to a patient presenting with acute clinical signs and abdominal pain due to a disease process of an abdominal structure. In veterinary medicine, this commonly includes gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, or urogenital causes, as well as those occurring secondary to abdominal neoplasia. Gastrointestinal emergencies include dietary indiscretion mechanical ileus (foreign material obstruction), intussusception, gastric dilatation and volvulus, and pancreatitis. Urogenital causes include urethral obstruction, ureteral obstruction, and pyometra. Obstruction of the biliary tract, either at the level of the gallbladder such as mucocele formation, or the ducts, are also possible diagnoses for the acute abdomen. Many of the these may lead to septic peritonitis if there is rupture or perforation of the affected structure. Some ...
Acute abdomen is a medical emergency with a wide spectrum of etiologies. Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) can help in early identification and management of the causes. The ACUTE-ABDOMEN protocol was created by the authors to aid in the evaluation of acute abdominal pain using a systematic sonographic approach, integrating the same core ultrasound techniques already in use-into one mnemonic. This mnemonic ACUTE means: A: abdominal aortic aneurysm; C: collapsed inferior vena cava; U: ulcer (perforated viscus); T: trauma (free fluid); E: ectopic pregnancy, followed by ABDOMEN which stands: A: appendicitis; B: biliary tract; D: distended bowel loop; O: obstructive uropathy; Men: testicular torsion/Women: ovarian torsion. The article discusses two cases of abdominal pain the diagnosis and management of which were directed and expedited as a result of using the ACUTE-ABDOMEN protocol. The first case was of a 33-year-old male, who presented with a 3-day history of abdominal pain, vomiting and constipation.

By Patel, Vijaykumar G Rao, Arundathi; Williams, Reginald; Srinivasan, Radha; Et al Acute epiploic appendagitis (EA) is a rare and often misdiagnosed cause of acute abdominal pain. Though a benign and often self- limiting condition, EAs ability to mimic other disease processes makes it an important consideration in patients presenting with acute abdominal symptoms. Careful evaluation of abdominal CT scan findings is crucial in the accurate diagnosis of epiploic appendagitis, thus avoiding unnecessary surgical intervention. We report a case of a 29-year-old male presenting with a two day history of generalized abdominal pain. Physical exam revealed a diffusely tender abdomen with hypoactive bowel sounds. The patient had a leukocytosis of 18,000 and abdominal CT scan revealed right lower quadrant inflammatory changes suggestive of acute appendicitis. Laparoscopic exploration revealed an inflamed gangrenous structure adjacent to the ileocecal junction. Pathologic evaluation revealed tissue ...
At present, CT is the gold standard in the assessment of patients with acute abdomen. Yet, one CT of the abdomen exposes patients to a radiation dose equivalent to several years of background radiation. MR can be expected to yield the same information without ionizing radiation, but tends to be more time consuming. In this study, patients with nontraumatic acute abdominal pain referred to CT of the abdomen by the department of surgery will also have performed an additional MR scan covering the entire abdomen with few fast imaging sequences in approximately 15min. CT is the diagnostic test. The MR scan is only used for scientific purposes. It will be evaluated by a radiologist blinded for the results of the CT scan. Fourteen days after admission, a final diagnosis is established based on clinical, peroperative, pathological and lab. findings. The performance of CT and MR will then be compared. The investigators hypothesize that MR can provide a diagnostic accuracy comparable to CT ...
Multiple other conditions can mimic an acute surgical abdomen: the prodromal phase of herpes zoster (see shingles (herpes zoster) mimicking appendicitis) abdominal wall hematoma, sickle cell crisis, withdrawal, typhoid, pneumonia and myocardial infarction are examples. There is also a primary peritonitis that occurs mostly (75%) in women, and young girls, usually due to pneumococcus spread hematogenously. Ascites may also become secondarily infected. Foreign bodies such as peritoneal-venous shunt may be a nidus for infection ...
Acute abdomen is the medical term used for pain in the abdomen that usually comes on suddenly and is so severe that one may have to go to the hospital. As opposed to common abdominal pain, which can be caused by minor issues such as constipation or gas, acute abdominal pain can signal a variety of more serious conditions, some of which require immediate medical care and/or surgery. Therefore, if you suspect you have this condition, contact your doctor immediately. ...

n acute abdomen refers to a sudden, severe abdominal pain. It is in many cases a medical emergency, requiring urgent and specific diagnosis.
Continuous or chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) has become an accepted treatment for end-stage chronic renal failure. It is well known that peritonitis is the most common complication of CAPD. The majority of these cases of peritonitis are catheter related and will usually resolve with antibiotic therapy. Although a single organism usually causes catheter related peritonitis, 6-9% of cases are polymicrobial in origin. A patient with CAPD can suffer an acute abdomen from gastrointestinal origin and it is a diagnostic challenge for surgeons to identify those patients with multiple enteric organisms isolated from the peritoneal fluid who will benefit from surgical exploration. Surgical exploration can be performed by means of laparotomy or laparoscopy. Laparoscopy is fast becoming the preferred surgical approach to a number of different pathologies because it allows them to be diagnosed and treated at the same time. There are also clear advantages for the patient associated with this ...

Background: The aims were to evaluate the importance of the formal competence of the emergency department physician, the patients time of arrival at the emergency department, and the use of a structured schedule for investigation of patients with acute abdominal pain. Methods: Patients attending the Mora Hospital with acute abdominal pain from 1997 to 2000 were registered prospectively according to a structured schedule. Registration included history, symptoms, signs, preliminary diagnosis, surgery and final diagnosis after at least one year. Results: 3073 acute abdominal pain patients were included. The preliminary diagnosis, as compared with the final diagnosis, was correct in 54% (n = 1659). Previously, during 1996, a base-line registration of 790 patients had a 58% correct diagnoses (n = 458). A majority of the patients (n = 2699; 88%) were managed by nonspecialists. The proportion of correct diagnoses was 54% (n = 759) for pre-registrar house officers and 55% (n = 443) for senior house ...
This study revealed the prevalence of IO to be 4.8 % among all surgical patients admitted to surgical ward and 21.8 % among patients admitted with a diagnosis of acute abdomen with subsequent surgical management. Indeed, world wide it has been estimated that 1 % of all hospitalizations, 3 % of emergency surgical admissions to general hospitals and 4 % of major colostomies are secondary to IO. This study confirmed previous findings that between 12 and 17 % of patients are admitted for small bowel obstruction within two years of their index operation, while approximately 3 % require an operation to treat an established small bowel obstruction [10]. Currently, many patients that present to general surgery services with acute abdomen conditions are thought to have IO [8]. While IO is rare in the USA and Western Europe, it is common in Pakistan and other tropical countries. It is the leading cause of acute abdomen complaints in several African countries, including Ethiopia [1, 6, 7]. In general, ...
Epiploic appendagitis (EA) is a rare cause of focal abdominal pain in otherwise healthy patients with mild or absent secondary signs of abdominal pathology. It can mimick diverticulitis or appendicitis on clinical exam. The diagnosis of EA is very infrequent, due in part to low or absent awareness among general surgeons. The objective of this work was to review the authors experience and describe the clinical presentation of EA. All patients diagnosed with EA between January 2004 and December 2006 at an urban surgical emergency room were retrospectively reviewed by two authors in order to share the authors experience with this rare diagnosis. The operations were performed by two surgeons. Pathological examinations of specimens were performed by a single pathologist. A review of clinical presentation is additionally undertaken. Ten patients (3 females and 7 males, average age: 44.6 years, range: 27-76 years) were diagnosed with symptomatic EA. Abdominal pain was the leading symptom, the pain being

Objective: Concerns about possible negative actions of opioids on important diagnostic signs and symptoms have limited the use of this efficient analgesic in patients with abdominal pain. In this study, we have addressed the old challenge with a statistical approach to determine whether this medication can be administered for patients presenting to an emergency department (ED) with signs of non-traumatic acute abdominal condition. Methods and Materials: A randomized clinical trial was arranged with 118 patients who were five years or older who had been prepared for transfer to the operating room in the Hazrat Rasul-e-Akram hospital. In a double blind randomized trial, pain, tenderness and the rebound tenderness ratio were recorded before and after receiving morphine and placebo. Result: Tenderness and the rebound tenderness Numeric Scale Mean dropped after administration of 0.1mg/kg morphine although this was not statistically significant. In contrast to the rebound tenderness (Pv=0.07) the ...

Appendagitis epiploic - What is epiploic appendagitis? The great pretender! Epiploic appendices are tear-drop shaped projections of fat that are attached to the outer wall of the large intestine. They have a propensity to twist, which may cut-off its blood supply and cause acute pain. This is a self-limiting condition that does not require any treatment. When this occurs on the right side, it is often mistaken for appendicitis, unless a skilled radiologist finds this on ct.

The term acute abdomen is commonly used to describe abdominal pain of recent onset requiring urgent surgical assessment. Most cases of acute abdominal pain present in the community and are managed by family practitioners, with only a few presenting to a hospital. Those cases that do present to hospital are usually referred to the general surgeons. In a third of cases, no specific diagnosis is made, although many will subsequently re-present with identifiable pathology.... ...

This 60 minute online vet nurse CPD will, with the aid of a case study, discuss all aspects of anaesthesia for the acute abdomen including causes, patient preparation and stabilisation, monitoring, nursing support and recovery from anaesthesia. The acute abdomen is a common complaint in small animals and refers to sudden and severe abdominal pain. It can arise from many causes including gastric dilatation and volvulus, ruptured splenic mass or an intestinal foreign body, but general anaesthesia is almost always required to diagnose and treat the cause. Anaesthesia for the Acute Abdomen.
The role of routine isoamylase determinations in differentiating acute pancreatitis from other causes of an acute abdomen with hyperamylasemia and/or hyperamylasuria was evaluated. Values were analyzed from a control group of 21 patients with acute pancreatitis (group I) and from 100 consecutive patients diagnosed in our emergency department as having an acute abdomen (group II). In group I, 100% of patients had hyperamylasemia, hyperamylasuria, and a P isoamylase fraction greater than 0.75 of the total amylase value. In group II, 50% of patients had hyperamylasemia and/or hyperamylasuria. Of these patients, 44% had a P isoamylase fraction less than 0.75 of the total amylase value, a finding apparently incompatible with a diagnosis of acute pancreatitis as identified by our control group. We conclude that routine isoamylase determinations in patients with an acute abdomen and hyperamylasemia and/or hyperamylasuria allows the differentiation from acute pancreatitis in 44% of cases.
General Opioid analgesics should be used with caution when combined with CNS depressant drugs, and should be reserved for cases where the benefits of opioid analgesia outweigh the known risks of respiratory depression, altered mental state, and postural hypotension.. Acute Abdominal Conditions. The administration of oxycodone and acetaminophen tablets or other opioids may obscure the diagnosis or clinical course in patients with acute abdominal conditions. Oxycodone and acetaminophen tablets should be given with caution to patients with CNS depression, elderly or debilitated patients, patients with severe impairment of hepatic, pulmonary, or renal function, hypothyroidism, Addisons disease, prostatic hypertrophy, urethral stricture, acute alcoholism, delirium tremens, kyphoscoliosis with respiratory depression, myxedema, and toxic psychosis.. Oxycodone and acetaminophen tablets may obscure the diagnosis or clinical course in patients with acute abdominal conditions. Oxycodone may aggravate ...

Salpingitis is an acute inflammation of the fallopian tubes, most commonly caused by sexually transmitted micro-organisms in adolescent and adult women. It is rarely found in sexually inactive girls and generally the result of a blood-borne or genitourinary infection. In young girls without a history of consensual sexual contact, the possibility of sexual abuse should be considered. Salpingitis usually presents as an acute abdomen. Appendicitis presents with almost the same symptoms as salpingitis. The diagnosis of salpingitis is often delayed until the presumed appendicitis is surgically explored. We describe an 11-year-old girl with salpingitis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae.

In the GI tract, plain X-rays play an important role only in the diagnosis and management of acute abdomen. For other diseases, plain X-rays are not as useful. For acute abdomen, 2 films needed: an upright or erect X-ray for intestinal fluid levels and free peritoneal air; and a supine x-ray of the abdomen. In addition, a chest x-ray should be done as pneumonias can mimic an acute abdomen. Intestinal obstruction is seen as multiple air fluid levels in the bowel. The level of obstruction either in proximal small bowel, distal small bowel or the large bowel can be determined from the nature of gas distended bowel loops and their location. Perforation of a hollow viscus (e.g. perforated duodenal ulcer)_ will show free peritoneal air even 2-3 cc, usually under the domes or diaphragm. If the patient cannot be made erect, a left lateral decubitus view is obtained which would show free air against the right lateral edge of the liver. Plain X-rays can help diagnose paralytic ileus, volvulus and toxic ...
The aim of this study is to identify the impact of imaging common acute abdominal diseases using the modern multi-row detectors CT scanners (MDCT ). Comparative study of fifty (50) positive cases of five common acute diseases, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, appendicitis, small bowel obstruction, and renal colic due to ureteric calculi was done . All 50 cases has been imaged by 16 slice MDCT scanner, US and/or plain filming. The results are correlated with surgical and medical findings The study shows reliable results in diagnosis of common acute abdominal diseases under study by MDCT scanners. 95% accuracy in detection of hepatobiliary diseases was recorded. 100% accuracy in detection of GB calculi compared to 90% for US .80% accuracy in detection of CBD calculi was recorded compared to 30% accuracy US of ductal stones. All of the cases of GB, CBD calculi undergone surgery at Madinat Zayed hospital.70% of pancreatitis cases were diagnosed by MDCT .(30%) does not show radio logic finding related to ...
Classic teaching in general surgery has suggested that administration of analgesia in children with acute abdominal pain should be deferred until after a definitive surgical treatment plan has been formulated. Theoretically, analgesia may mask pain and lessen the examination findings that would normally suggest a surgical cause for abdominal pain. All but one of the studies found that opioid analgesia was effective at reducing pain scores in children with acute abdominal pain. Bailey et al state that morphine was not more effective than placebo in diminshing pain. This study suffers from being significantly underpowered regarding this outcome, but this does not fully explain the result, which appears to be due to a high placebo response compared to the other studies rather than a lack of response to morphine. The reasons for such a high response are likely to be complex and beyond the scope of this commentary. The studies identified all report that administration of analgesia to children with ...
A mesenteric cyst (MeSH C04.182.473) is a cyst in the mesenterium, and is one of the rarest abdominal tumors, with approximately 822 cases reported since 1507. The incidence is between 1 per 100,000 to 1 per 250,000 hospital admissions. Tillauxs triad named after the french surgeon Paul Jules Tillaux can be seen in cases of mesenteric cyst. It consists of the following signs: a fluctuating swelling near the umbilicus, freely mobile in the direction perpendicular to the attachment of mesentry, with a zone of resonance around the swelling. Liew, S. C.; Glenn, D. C.; Storey, D. W. (1994). Mesenteric cyst. The Australian and New Zealand journal of surgery. 64 (11): 741-744. doi:10.1111/j.1445-2197.1994.tb04530.x. PMID 7945079. ...
Mesenteric cyst: Find the most comprehensive real-world symptom and treatment data on mesenteric cyst at PatientsLikeMe. 3 patients with mesenteric cyst experience fatigue, insomnia, depressed mood, pain, and anxious mood.
RESULTS: There were 3 717 patients, accounting for 29.5% of all emergency surgical admissions. The mean age was 32.5 years. The most common diagnoses were appendicitis (996, 26.8%), nonspecific abdominal pain (871, 23.4%), intestinal obstruction (498, 13.4%) and abdominal trauma (245, 6.6%). In all, 1 788 patients (48.1%) had operations during their emergency admission compared with 37.0% in our previous study. Appendicectomy (903, 50.5%) was the most common operation. Operations for abdominal trauma and typhoid ileal perforation have increased, while operations for strangulated external hernia and perforated duodenal ulcer have decreased. Of the 169 (4.5%) patients who died, 107 (6.0%) died after an operation. Delayed presentation increased mortality ... abdomen ...
Ascariasis is uncommon in United States of America but can be seen in immigrants and travelers. It can present with intestinal complications. We present a case of acute suppurative appendicitis with bowel perforation. Interestingly and unexpected, worms were palpated in the intestine in the operating room. Later, an adult Ascaris worm was identified in nasogastric tube canister. During hospitalization, a contrast-based computed tomographic scan revealed impressive finding of contrast filling defects in stomach and small intestine of the patient indicating the adult worms. The patient was treated with Ivermectin.

Sequence of events at the veterinary hospital:. Upon arrival at the veterinary hospital, the patient will be attended to as an emergency in line with the pet owners complaint. The vet will then seek to confirm if the symptoms are truly suggestive of acute abdomen.. To confirm the vets speculation of acute abdomen, the pet owner would need to give an accurate and detailed history of the pets condition and lifestyle. The vet will ask many in-depth questions to get a better idea of the pets medical history and what might be causing their discomfort. Information will be requested regarding the names of current medications the pet is receiving, recent abdominal surgery the pet would have undergone, time estimate of when they noticed signs of pain or distress as well as the progression of the symptoms. As much as it might feel like an interrogation by the vet, this detailed information assists in speeding up the process of providing the best care for the pet.. Depending on initial findings by the ...
We report three cases of ileocolic mucormycosis in adult immunocompromised patients presenting as acute abdomen. All patients underwent laparotomy but two of them died from multiorgan failure before the diagnoses were confirmed. The diagnosis of gastrointestinal mucormycosis is rarely suspected, and antemortem diagnosis is made in only 25%-50% of cases. These cases illustrate the difficulty encountered by surgeons in managing acute abdomen in neutropenic patients with hematological malignancy. The management of colonic mucormycosis in the published literature is also reviewed. © 2010 Baishideng. All rights reserved ...

More adult patients visit EDs annually in the U.S. for stomach and abdominal pain, cramps, or spasms than for any other chief complaint. In 2006, 6.7% of ED visits-8.04 million patient encounters-were for abdominal pain.1 Demographics (age, gender, ethnicity, family history, sexual orientation, cultural practices, geography) influence both the incidence and the clinical expression of abdominal disease. The history, vital signs, and physical findings may not point to a specific diagnosis, and laboratory testing is often not helpful. Although we cannot always identify the exact cause of the patients pain, we do seek to exclude life-threatening disease and to narrow the list of diagnostic possibilities for further workup. On the whole, clinical suspicion for serious disease is paramount, especially for patients in high-risk groups. ...
