Hindrance of the passage of luminal contents in the DUODENUM. Duodenal obstruction can be partial or complete, and caused by intrinsic or extrinsic factors. Simple obstruction is associated with diminished or stopped flow of luminal contents. Strangulating obstruction is associated with impaired blood flow to the duodenum in addition to obstructed flow of luminal contents.
The hazards of vinyl glove ingestion in the mentally retarded patient with pica: new implications for surgical management. (1/83)OBJECTIVE: To report experience with the treatment of complications of vinyl glove ingestion in mentally retarded patients with pica. DESIGN: A retrospective case series. SETTING: Two university-affiliated hospitals. PATIENTS: Five mentally retarded patients, 4 with a history of pica, who were admitted for the management of complications resulting from the ingestion of vinyl gloves. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Type of complication, treatment and operative outcome. FINDINGS: The patients ranged in age from 26 to 46 years. One patient died while awaiting surgical consultation of massive gastrointestinal bleeding from a large gastric ulcer caused by a vinyl glove bezoar (VGB). Four VGBs were removed surgically. Endoscopic removal was difficult or impossible because the gloves had become hardened and matted. CONCLUSIONS: VGB should be considered in institutionalized mentally retarded people with a history of pica when they present with gastrointestinal symptoms. VGBs should be removed directly by laparotomy, gastrotomy or enterotomy. Endoscopic removal is not recommended. (+info)
Surgical treatment of oesophageal obstruction after ingestion of a granular laxative. (2/83)A case of oesophageal obstruction after ingestion of a granular laxative in a 91-year-old man is presented. There was no predisposing oesophageal disease. The severity of obstruction prevented endoscopic clearance and the patient required gastrotomy and manual disimpaction of the lower oesophagus. (+info)
Small bowel obstruction and covered perforation in childhood caused by bizarre bezoars and foreign bodies. (3/83)BACKGROUND: Small bowel obstruction with perforation is an unusual and rare complication of bezoars. OBJECTIVE: To describe our use of emergency laparotomy to treat intestinal obstruction caused by bizarre bezoars. CONCLUSIONS: An aggressive surgical approach to intestinal obstruction in the pediatric disabled or mentally retarded population is recommended. (+info)
An intragastric trichobezoar: computerised tomographic appearance. (4/83)A 26-year-old lady presented with a history of abdominal pain and distension since two months. The ultrasound examination showed an epigastric mass, which was delineated as a filling defect in the stomach on barium studies. The computerised tomographic scan showed a gastric mass with pockets of air in it, without post-contrast enhancement. This case highlights the characteristic appearance on computerised tomography of a bezoar within the stomach, a feature that is not commonly described in medical literature. (+info)
Esophageal and small bowel obstruction by occupational bezoar: report of a case. (5/83)BACKGROUND: Phytobezoar may be a cause of bowel obstruction in patients with previous gastric surgery. Most bezoars are concretions of poorly digested food, which are usually formed initially in the stomach. Intestinal obstruction (esophageal and small bowel) caused by an occupational bezoar has not been reported. CASE PRESENTATION: A 70-year old male is presented suffering from esophageal and small bowel obstruction, caused by an occupational bezoar. The patient has worked as a carpenter for 35 years. He had undergone a vagotomy and pyloroplasty 10 years earlier. The part of the bezoar, which caused the esophageal obstruction was removed during endoscopy, while the part of the small bowel was treated surgically. The patient recovered well and was discharged on the 8th postoperative day. CONCLUSIONS: Since occupational bezoars may be a cause of intestinal obstruction (esophageal and/or small bowel), patients who have undergone a previous gastric surgery should avoid occupational exposures similar to the presented case. (+info)
Cotton Bezoar--a rare cause of intestinal obstruction: case report. (6/83)BACKGROUND: Bezoars usually present as a mass in the stomach. The patient often has a preceding history of some psychiatric predisposition. Presentation could be in the form of trichophagy followed by trichobezoar (swallowing of hair leading to formation of bezoar), orphytobezoar (swallowing of vegetable fibres). Rapunzel syndrome is a condition where the parent bezoar is in the stomach and a tail of the fibres or hair extends in to the jejunum. Presentation as intestinal obstruction due to a bezoar in the intestine without a parent bezoar in the stomach is rare, therefore we report it here. CASE REPORT: A 35 year old lady tailor with a previous history of receiving treatment for depression on account of being infertile- years after her marriage, presented to the surgical emergency department with features of acute intestinal obstruction. Exploratory laparotomy and enterotomy revealed a cotton bezoar in the terminal ileum without a parent bezoar in the stomach. She was managed by resection of the affected segment of the ileum and end-to-end anastomosis of the bowel. In the postoperative period the patient gave a history of ingesting cotton threads whenever she was depressed. CONCLUSION: Presence of cotton bezoar is rare and an intestinal bezoar in the absence of parent bezoar in the stomach is still rarer. (+info)
Phytobezoar: an uncommon cause of small bowel obstruction. (7/83)Phytobezoars are an unusual cause of small bowel obstruction. We report 13 patients presenting with 16 episodes of small bowel obstruction from phytobezoars. Eleven patients had previously undergone surgery for peptic ulceration (eight truncal vagotomy and pyloroplasty). A history of ingestion of persimmon fruit was common and the majority of cases presented in the autumn when this fruit is in season. One phytobezoar causing obstruction at the third part of the duodenum was removed by endoscopic fragmentation, while an episode of jejunal obstruction was precipitated by endoscopic fragmentation of a gastric bezoar. Twelve patients underwent surgery for obstruction on 15 occasions, with milking of the phytobezoar to the caecum performed in ten, enterotomy and removal in four and resection in one patient. Associated gastric phytobezoars were found in two cases and multiple small bowel bezoars in two other cases. These were removed to prevent recurrent obstruction. Phytobezoar should be considered preoperatively as a cause of obstruction in patients with previous ulcer surgery. Wherever possible milking of a phytobezoar to the caecum should be performed. Careful assessment for other phytobezoars should be made. Prevention of phytobezoars is dependent upon dietary counselling of patients by surgeons after gastric resection or vagotomy and drainage for peptic ulcer. (+info)
Urinary ascites and anuria caused by bilateral fungal balls in a premature infant. (8/83)A case is reported of anuria and urinary ascites secondary to bilateral ureteropelvic obstruction by fungal balls. Management consisted of bilateral nephrostomy drainage with local irrigation with amphotericin B, and systemic antifungal treatment without surgery. Aspiration by paracentesis was performed for the urinary ascites and continuous drainage through an 8 Fr pig tail catheter for the urinoma. The literature on renal fungus balls in neonates and infants is reviewed. (+info)

Doctors Hub: What is Hairball or Trichobezoar?
It is difficult to diagnose trichobezoar at initial stages. The ingested hair are trapped in the folds of GIT. Our stomach could not digest the hair and these continue to add up in-addition to food and mucus, leading to the development of hairball or trichobezoar. Trichobezoar presents with pain abdomen and epigastric mass or abdominal mass and may be taken for a kind of tumor. Trichobezoars lead to intestinal obstruction. ...
Internet Scientific Publications
We report a case of a colonic phytobezoar causing large bowel obstruction and pressure necrosis upon presentation, and the treatment of this unusual occurrence. Historically, bezoars are classified according to the involved material and include phytobezoar (fruit and vegetable fibers), trichobezoar (hair), and lactobezoar (milk curds). Bezoars secondary to medications have also been described. 5. Predisposing factors include inadequate chewing, high-fiber diets, and previous gastric surgery 6 . Small-bowel obstruction is the most frequent clinical presentation of phytobezoars, although they are responsible for only 0.4-4% of all intestinal obstructions 5 . Chronic constipation in elderly patients with inadequate food intake due to blindness was probably the trigger to bezoar formation in our patient. Bezoar-induced obstruction of small bowel rarely improves with conservative treatment, and early surgery may be required to relieve obstruction. Conservative treatment is appropriate for colonic ...

Gastrointestinal obstruction due to plaster ingestion: a case-report | BMC Surgery | Full Text
Plaster ingestion forming gastric bezoar is a strange way to attempt suicide and this method has not yet been reported. It may lead to a mechanical obstruction of the gut, especially the pyloric region, and could manifest with abdominal pain, epigastric distress, nausea, vomiting, and fullness. Herein we report a case of a 37 year-old woman presenting with plaster ingestion and gastric outlet obstruction, who underwent surgery. At six months follow-up the patient was fully recovered. Plaster has no toxic or erosive effects. Endoscopic or surgical removing of such material is recommended. Moreover, psychiatric intervention and management is imperative to prevent recurrence in such cases.

BACKGROUND: Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and abdominal pain are commonly seen in a pediatric emergency department (8 and 18% incidence respectively in our center). They are manifestations of a wide variety of diseases ranging from benign to immediately life-threatening. Trichobezoar is an under-diagnosed entity that has to be considered in children and adolescents, expecially female, suffering from trichotillomania (compulsion to pull hair) and trichophagy (compulsion to swallow hair). When undiagnosed, gastric bezoars may cause gastric ulceration, perforation, haemorrhage and obstruction. CASE PRESENTATION: To underline the importance of including this pathology in the differential diagnosis of IDA and abdominal pain, we present the case of a 14 year-old girl with a huge trichobezoar which completely filled the stomach and extended into the small bowel. Since trichobezoar has an extension to the small bowel, it is classified as Rapunzel syndrome. As the bezoar couldnt be removed by endoscopy, ...

Bezoars are masses that may be formed from food, medication or hair, which are trapped within the gastrointestinal system.1 Enteral tube feeding combined with opioids and sucralfate, which the patient used, is associated with development of a bezoar, presumably due to gastric dysmotility and the formation of insoluble complexes between sucralfate and nutritional proteins.2 A systemic review analysis, largely based on case reports and including 46 patients, revealed that Coca-Cola administration as monotherapy can successfully resolve a phytobezoar in half the cases and in more than 90% when combined with endoscopic intervention. Only a minority of the patients (9%) needed additional surgical intervention to remove the bezoar.3 The chances of success with cola are higher for phytobezoars, which contain indigestible plant material, than for diospyrobezoars, which are formed from persimmon (sharon fruit and kaki).1,3 Alternatively, surgical removal or enzymatic digestion may be needed.2,3 ...
Hairball - Wikipedia
Play media A hairball is a small collection of hair or fur formed in the stomach of animals, and uncommonly in humans, that is occasionally vomited up when it becomes too big. Hairballs are formed from hair or fur that is delivered into stomach orally. Hairballs are primarily a tight elongated cylinder of packed fur, but may include bits of other elements such as swallowed food. Animals with hairballs are sometimes mistaken as having other conditions of the stomach such as lymphosarcoma, tuberculosis, and tumor of the spleen. Felids are especially prone to hairball formation since they groom themselves by licking their fur, and thereby ingest it. Rabbits are also prone to hairballs because they groom themselves in the same fashion as cats, but hairballs are especially dangerous for rabbits because they cannot regurgitate them. Due to the digestive systems of rabbits being very fragile, hairballs in rabbits must be treated immediately or they may cause the animal to stop feeding and ultimately ...

Cat Hairballs: Cough It Up | Animal Behavior College
Preventing hairballs-or their aftermath-helps keep cats healthy (and floors clean).. This April 25 marks the ninth year cat lovers will celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day. It is interesting to note that felines arent the only hairball expellers; rabbits do, too. So do cud-chewing animals such as cows, oxen, sheep, goats, llamas, deer and antelopes. And-wait for it-people, too! A human hairball is called a trichobezoar. Its common in people who compulsively play with their hair and swallow it.. Now, this is not a day you want to celebrate by being greeted by a big hairball presented by your cat. A celebration would be NOT waking up to a hairball on the rug.. Most cats are able to expel hairballs by vomiting them up. But often that is the tip of the iceberg of hair-so to speak. Ingested hair can cause a serious blockage in the intestinal tract and lead to all sorts of complications.. Its so important to remember that while cats are self-groomers, they still need help from their pet ...
Hairballs in Cats - Pet Assure Blog
Many owners know that cats can have a hairball or two, but do you know why? Better yet, do you know how to get rid of them? This blog can help answer those cat hairball questions.. While there are many jokes surrounding hairballs, they are no laughing matter. Hairballs in cats arent just unpleasant to clean up, they can cause some serious blockages in the intestinal tract if they arent removed-one way or another.. A hairball results from the grooming routine of your pet. When a cat grooms itself, tiny hook-like structures grab dead hair and loose hair. The animal then swallows all that hair! It sounds gross to us humans, but as the saying goes, a cat has got to do what a cat has got to do. For the most part, the hair that your pet swallows usually passes easily through the entire digestive tract and ends up in the litter box. However, the problem is when some of the hair remains in the stomach and doesnt get passed through. That particular bunch of hair results in the vomited hairball that ...

Giant Hair Ball Removed From A Teens Stomach With Trichophagia | EmaxHealth
Computed tomography showed a large gastric mass extending from the fundus to the antrum (Panel A, arrow), with no indication of obstruction of the gastric outlet. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a large bezoar occluding nearly the entire stomach, without extension into the duodenum (Panel B). On questioning, the patient stated that she had had a habit of eating her hair for many years -- a condition called trichophagia. Owing to the large size of the trichobezoar (37.5 by 17.5 by 17.5 cm), endoscopic removal was not attempted.. Laparoscopic removal was attempted; however, conversion to an open procedure was required to completely remove the 4.5-kg trichobezoar (Panel C). The patient was tolerating a general diet by postoperative day 5 and was discharged to her home, with psychiatric and surgical follow-up.. One year after the surgery, she has no abdominal pain or vomiting. She has regained approximately 9 kg of body weight and reports that she has stopped eating her hair.. ...

Gastric lactobezoar - a rare disorder? | Orphanet Journal of Rare Diseases | Full Text
Gastric lactobezoar, a pathological conglomeration of milk and mucus in the stomach of milk-fed infants often causing gastric outlet obstruction, is a rarely reported disorder (96 cases since its first description in 1959). While most patients were described 1975-1985 only 26 children have been published since 1986. Clinically, gastric lactobezoars frequently manifest as acute abdomen with abdominal distension (61.0% of 96 patients), vomiting (54.2%), diarrhea (21.9%), and/or a palpable abdominal mass (19.8%). Respiratory (23.0%) and cardiocirculatory (16.7%) symptoms are not uncommon. The pathogenesis of lactobezoar formation is multifactorial: exogenous influences such as high casein content (54.2%), medium chain triglycerides (54.2%) or enhanced caloric density (65.6%) of infant milk as well as endogenous factors including immature gastrointestinal functions (66.0%), dehydration (27.5%) and many other mechanisms have been suggested. Diagnosis is easy if the potential presence of a gastric lactobezoar

Hairballs in cats The elusive and very unpleasant hairball is something that every cat owner will experience at some point. Cats in general are very clean and well-kept animals and grooming is an essential routine for them to ensure their cleanliness. A healthy cat is one that grooms. Hairballs are simply a by-product of your cats hygiene. A trichobezoar, commonly known as a hairball, is a clump of indigestible hair, moistened by bile and digestive fluid that may or may not contain bits of food or other foreign material. Hairballs are not usually round in shape but rather drawn-out and the shape of a sausage. This is due to their passage through the oesophagus, the tube connecting the stomach to the mouth, which is long and cylindrical. Hairballs can occasionally resemble faeces but on closer examination one will notice it is made up of hair. It also does not smell like faeces although it does not have a particularly pleasant odour.

Gastric Pharmacobezoar of Mesalamine Tablets Retrieved Endoscopically | ACG Case Reports Journal - An online journal of case...
Pharmacobezoars are an uncommon complication caused by conglomeration of medications or medication vehicles in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The stomach is the most common site for formation of such bezoars. Bulk-forming laxatives, extended release formulations, drugs (eg, nifedipine, verapamil, procainamide, ferrous sulphate, theophylline, and cholestyramine), prior gastric surgery, and Crohns disease predispose to bezoar formation.1 Mesalamine tablets usually release salt at pH 7 in the terminal ileum and colon. The pH of the stomach is usually less than 7, so these tablets do not release salt in stomach. Crohns disease is a stricturing disease of the GI tract, and stricture at the pylorus may impede the movement of gastric contents, thereby promoting the formation of a pharmacobezoar. Only two similar cases were previously reported in the literature for Crohns disease patients due to mesalamine tablets.1,2 In our case, the stricture at the pylorus prevented the tablets from passing ...

Pre-Screening: Case Report: Trichobezoar Causing Small Bowel Obstruction :: Radiology cases and teaching files
Dear JRCR editor(s): We hope you will consider the following case as suitable for submission to the JRCR: Our patient was a 6-year-old previously healthy, immunized and developmentally normal female. She presented with a one-day history of 5-6 episodes of bilious emesis, periumbilical pain and intolerance to fluids or solids. The emergency room physician was particularly struck by how foul the emesis smelled and how unusual it looked. She had 2 isolated incidents of nonbilious emesis in the past 3 weeks. The patient had no bowel movements for 2 days but was passing flatus. Patient did have a history of constipation. There was no family history of inflammatory bowel disease or celiac disease but her mother did have a history of irritable bowel syndrome. On physical examination, the patient was afebrile and demonstrated periumbilical tenderness. Bowel sounds were present and her abdomen was nondistended. Laboratory investigations revealed a mild leuokocytosis but otherwise inflammatory markers were
