Afferent Loop Syndrome: A complication of gastrojejunostomy (BILLROTH II PROCEDURE), a reconstructive GASTROENTEROSTOMY. It is caused by acute (complete) or chronic (intermittent) obstruction of the afferent jejunal loop due to HERNIA, intussusception, kinking, VOLVULUS, etc. It is characterized by PAIN and VOMITING of BILE-stained fluid.Blind Loop Syndrome: A malabsorption syndrome that is associated with a blind loop in the upper SMALL INTESTINE that is characterized by the lack of peristaltic movement, stasis of INTESTINAL CONTENTS, and the overgrowth of BACTERIA. Such bacterial overgrowth interferes with BILE SALTS action, FATTY ACIDS processing, MICROVILLI integrity, and the ABSORPTION of nutrients such as VITAMIN B12 and FOLIC ACID.Gastroenterostomy: A variety of surgical reconstructive procedures devised to restore gastrointestinal continuity, The two major classes of reconstruction are the Billroth I (gastroduodenostomy) and Billroth II (gastrojejunostomy) procedures.Schilling Test: A diagnostic test in which vitamin B12 is tagged with radioactive cobalt, taken orally, and gastrointestinal absorption is determined via measurement of the amount of radioactivity in a 24-hour urine collection.Dictionaries, MedicalHepatic Veno-Occlusive Disease: Liver disease that is caused by injuries to the ENDOTHELIAL CELLS of the vessels and subendothelial EDEMA, but not by THROMBOSIS.

Non-surgical treatment for afferent loop syndrome in recurrent gastric cancer complicated by peritoneal carcinomatosis: percutaneous transhepatic duodenal drainage followed by 24-hour infusion of high-dose fluorouracil and leucovorin. (1/7)

Afferent loop syndrome (ALS) is a debilitating complication of recurrent gastric cancer. Surgical intervention is usually not feasible in the face of poor general performance, presence of advanced peritoneal carcinomatosis and limited survival of the patients. Non-surgical approaches include internal drainage by stenting at the stenotic or anastomotic site and external drainage via the percutaneous routes. Percutaneous transhepatic duodenal drainage (PTDD) has been shown to provide effective palliation for ALS, but long-term catheterization is usually inevitable. We hereby present two cases of recurrent gastric cancer whose ALS was successfully treated with PTDD followed by weekly 24-h infusion of high-dose 5-fluorouracil and leucovorin (HDFL). PTDD rapidly ameliorated the incapacitating symptoms of ALS, and the effective, low-toxicity chemotherapy subsequently led to tumor regression, restoration of bowel patency and removal of the drainage tube. At present, both patients have remained ALS-free and drainage-free for 16 and 17 months, respectively. Our results indicate that this non-surgical approach with PTDD followed by weekly HDFL could serve as a safe and effective treatment for ALS in recurrent gastric cancer complicated by peritoneal carcinomatosis.  (+info)

Laparoscopy in afferent loop obstruction presenting as acute pancreatitis. (2/7)

BACKGROUND: We describe an afferent loop obstruction caused by an adhesion band in a case of distal gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y end-to-side jejunal anastomosis for cancer. METHODS: An initial clinical presentation of acute pancreatitis was ruled out by a computed tomography scan, which revealed intestinal obstruction; it was then confirmed on laparoscopy. Definitive treatment was laparoscopic adhesiolysis. A complete review of the literature concerning afferent loop obstructions is presented. RESULTS: The treatment was successful, with minimal postoperative pain, and the 5-day hospital stay was uncomplicated. The patient remains asymptomatic at 1-year follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: The authors advocate minimally invasive surgery as a complete diagnostic and therapeutic alternative to emergency laparotomy in cases where afferent loop syndrome is suspected, and acknowledge that prompt surgery has a higher rate of success and reduces operative morbidity and mortality.  (+info)

Malignant afferent loop obstruction following pancreaticoduodenectomy: report of two cases. (3/7)

We report two cases of malignant afferent loop obstruction following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Case 1. A 70-year-old woman, who had undergone PD for pancreatic cancer, was referred to our hospital because of fever, jaundice, and abdominal pain. Ultrasonography and abdominal computed tomography demonstrated dilatation of a small bowel loop in the right upper quadrant. Laparotomy confirmed the diagnosis of local recurrent tumor causing occlusion of the afferent limb, and Roux-en-Y bypass was performed. Case 2. A 72-year-old man, who had undergone PD for cancer of the major papilla, was hospitalized with a high-grade fever and epigastric pain. Ultrasonography and abdominal computed tomography revealed a dilated afferent loop and multiple masses in liver. At laparotomy, widespread carcinomatosis was found to have caused afferent loop obstruction, and surgical bypass was performed. In conclusion, the surgical bypass seems to be an effective palliative treatment for afferent loop syndrome after PD.  (+info)

Biliary stone causing afferent loop syndrome and pancreatitis. (4/7)

We report the case of an 84-year-old female who had a partial gastrectomy with Billroth-II anastomosis 24 years ago for a benign peptic ulcer who now presented an acute pancreatitis secondary to an afferent loop syndrome. The syndrome was caused by a gallstone that migrated through a cholecystoenteric fistula. This is the first description in the literature of a biliary stone causing afferent loop syndrome.  (+info)

Enterolith causing acute afferent loop syndrome after Billroth II gastrectomy: a case report. (6/7)

Enterolith is a rare cause of afferent loop obstruction following Billroth II gastrectomy. We report a case of acute afferent loop syndrome (ALS) due to a huge enterolith, necessitating prompt surgery. The clinical pattern may mimic acute cholangitis and/or pancreatitis. Delayed diagnosis may result in severe complications such as bowel ischemia or perforation. Only 14 reported cases of enterolith causing afferent loop obstruction were found in the English literature.  (+info)

The dilatation of the small bowel proximal to the closed loop and the dilatation within the closed loop depend on the amount of obstruction at the two stenoses and the time before the patient gets to CT and surgery.. In most cases both the proximal bowel and the closed loop are dilated, but sometimes there is only dilatation of the proximal bowel or only of the closed loop.. When the obstruction is very acute and there is no time delay, the bowel may not be dilated at all, which can make the diagnosis difficult.. Watch the next video.... ...
Mechanical obstruction results in the dilatation of the proximal large bowel, leading to an increase in intraluminal pressure. Initially, this causes reduced mesenteric venous outflow and mucosal oedema, causing the transudative loss of fluids and electrolytes into the proximal bowel lumen. This causes severe dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. The bowel wall progressively becomes ischaemic as arterial blood supply becomes compromised with further oedema and mucosal ulceration, predisposing to bacterial translocation and septic complications. The ischaemic bowel wall is also prone to perforation that results in faecal peritonitis.. Sigmoid or caecal volvulus occurs due to the rotation of the colonic segment on its mesentery. Following a complete 360-degree twist, closed loop obstruction occurs.. Closed loop obstruction also occurs in the presence of a distal obstruction with a patent ileo-caecal valve (ie. competent valve). This further increases the intraluminal pressure and causes caecal ...
A 36 year old Male presents with abdominal pain and distension with vomiting and constipation since two days.

Efferent Loop Syndrome What is efferent loop syndrome? Efferent loop syndrome is one of two loop syndromes that can happen after some types of gastric surgery. In a loop syndrome, a portion or limb of the small intestine becomes blocked. Of the two types of loop syndromes, the other type, afferent loop syndrome, is the more common. Efferent loop syndrome is quite rare. Surgeons have improved gastric surgery, so both types of loop syndromes are now less common. What causes efferent loop syndrome afte...

Acupuncture needling is associated with increases in capillary tortuosity and diameter of afferent loop in the oral mucosa of health volunteers.. Many branches of medicine employ acupuncture by exploiting its proven effects such as the reduction of pain sensation, or reduction of nausea of chemotherapy or pregnancy. Research is conducted into new effects not yet proven, for example, variations in hormones such as angiotensin and its use in the complications of dysmetabolic pathologies such as diabetes.11 12 In the last two years, many studies have been made on the cardiocirculatory system and in particular on the modulation of the pressure values, on the use of acupuncture as an adjuvant to pharmacological therapies, on the reduction of cancer pain, on treatment of neuropathies and on the investigation of the effects of acupuncture on macro and microcirculation, especially at nail, skin and muscle layer level.13. A recent study conducted by Komori et al14 confirmed that acupuncture stimulation ...

Self-filling blind loops of rat jejunum exhibit hyperregenerative transformation of the mucosa. We used this experimental model to characterise mechanisms, which may occur under similar conditions in man (stagnant loop syndrome). Epithelial and subepithelial resistance were measured in the Ussing-chamber by voltage divider ratio measurements after positioning a microelectrode between epithelium and subepithelial tissue layers. In the blind loop, epithelial resistance increased from 8 +/- 1 to 23 +/- 1 omega cm2 and subepithelial resistance from 39 +/- 4 to 86 +/- 8 omega cm2 as compared with control jejunum. The increase in the subepithelial resistance was paralleled anatomically by an increase in the thickness of the subepithelial tissue layers from 63 +/- 4 microns to 177 +/- 19 microns. Ultrastructural analysis of the tight junction area by freeze fracture electron microscopy revealed an increase in the total junctional depth in the crypts from 243 +/- 9 nm in control jejunum to 396 +/- 17 ...
Volvulus of the colon is a closed loop obstruction resulting from an axial rotation of the colon on its mesentry. It is one of the common causes for obstruction in Northern Iran, East Africa, Eastern Europe and India. It is probably related to the high roughage diet consumed in these communities. These diets are similar to the Jamaican diet. This retrospective study was undertaken to determine the frequency of this type of acute abdominal emergency seen at the University Hospital of the West Indies, (UHWI), Kingston, Jamaica. Colonic volvulus accounted for 8-9 percent of all intestinal obstruction seen at the UHWI between 1971-1976. All types of volvulus were seen with sigmoid volvulus being the most commonly encountered. A high incidence of compound volvulus was also noted. The high roughage diet is suggested as an etiological factor since it is similar to the diet in other countries where the incidence of volvulus is high. Colonic volvulus is an acute surgical emergency requiring prompt ...

Prophylactic antibiotic therapy may be indicated in cases of IBD. Criteria that determine antibiotic use include the presence of peripheral leukocytosis, elevated hepatic or pancreatic enzymes on the biochemical profile, bleeding from the GI tract, suspected bacterial overgrowth or stagnant loop syndrome, and severe mucosal inflammatory changes with a neutrophilic component. Two antibiotics that are often used in combination with prednisolone therapy are amoxicillin (Amoxi-tabs) and metronidazole (Flagyl). Amoxicillin has both aerobic and anaerobic bactericidal effects and is dosed at 5 to 10 mg/lb b.i.d. for 10 to 14 days or as long as deemed necessary by the veterinarian. Metronidazole is primarily an anaerobic bactericidal antibiotic and often shows dramatic clinical response in combination with prednisolone therapy in refractory IBD cases. Metroniclazole also has an antiprotozoan effect and aids in inhibiting cell-mediated immune responses in the intestinal tract. For IBD therapy ...
