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)

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. ...

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.
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
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 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.

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 ...

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
preventable, while others are hereditary.. Hairballs. Hairballs are among the most common of cat health problems.

Hair is not an easily digested "food". Hair can mix with undigested food in the intestinal tract and cause an occlusion and possibly constipation. High fiber diets may help your cat eliminate the hairballs easier. However, high fiber diets may be problematic for the digestive tract of your pet. Opt for a diet that contains fibers but also a fat emulsifier that will facilitate the digestion. Soy lecithin is an effective fat emulsifier that can be fed to cats. Canned pumpkin contains a lot of fibers and it is also wet, so it can facilitate the digestion. Get canned pumpkin that doesnt contain sugar. ...

The Awl-which I totally and unabashedly love-has a piece on the over-promise and under-delivery of personal genomics. Its a familiar meme and probably not news to Genomeboy readers (both of you!) that a fair number of folks feel this way. I have some sympathy for the "too much hype" argument, especially in light of how complicated common diseases and traits have turned out to be and how the personal genomics industry (if we can still call it that) has declined to come together to develop standards, choosing instead to fend off the annual sabre-rattling by the FDA on an ad hoc basis.. As I recall, I spent a long time on the phone with the Awl writer and said many things, including this:. "It turns out to be just a total fucking mess. So instead of having this linear icon representing human biology, the most potent symbol now is the hairball.". If we are talking only about type 2 diabetes or human height or Crohns disease or certain forms of cancer, then yes, I wholeheartedly stand behind the ...
To understand networks visually, we need to see their structure directly, not by proxy of a layout algorithm based on aesthetics. Hairballs turn complex data into visualizations that are just as complex, or even more so. Hairballs can even seduce us to believe that they carry a high information value. But, just because they look complex does not mean that they can communicate complex information. Hairballs are the junk food of network visualization - they have very low nutritional value, leaving the user hungry. In a hairball, data is subordinate to layout - node and edge positions and lengths depend as much on the layout algorithm (of which there are many), as on the data. The effect of layout rules is difficult to predict, making direct comparisons of these visualizations impossible. For example, imagine trying to compare two scatter plots in which the ordinality of the scales were altered (e.g. x = 1, 2, 3, ... in one and x = 3, 1, 2, ... in the other). As a result, a great deal of detail ...

acr, I did try warming up the wet food for a few seconds in the microwave, but she wasnt interested. She only threw up the hairball/spit in like a 2 hour period of time last Tuesday, but then she did it again on Friday morning (no hairball this time, just the Purina DM wet cat food I fed her for breakfast and then the spit stuff again), which is why I took her to the vet. The vet seemed to think that her vomiting the hairball caused esophagitis because of the stomach acid, so thats why she gave her the kitty Pepcid and anti-nausea meds, but she didnt seem to think there was anything deeper going on. So, it could just be that her esophagus is still bothering her and thats why she doesnt want to eat. The only reason I was thinking that she was being picky is that this morning she was sitting at her food dish, and then shed sniff her food, then give me sad eyes, sniff her food again, etc. Im not an expert in cat-communications, but it seemed like she was saying, Im hungry, but this food ...
What cat owner doesnt occasionally come home to a surprise pile of vomit, usually on their best chair or Persian rug?. It is not unusual to see a hairball every so often even when we think we are being diligent about brushing and grooming our cats. Cats shed their hair based upon both increasing daylight hours and warmer temperatures so consequently, indoor cats may shed all year round. For long-haired cats that tend to shed and form mats in their coats, clipping hair from the underside and backside (sanitary clip) can cut down on unpleasant grooming at home. Lion shaves are also recommended to reduce hairballs in long haired cats.. Stress such as a move to a new household, introduction of a new pet, construction or seeing outdoor cats through a window can increase shedding. Most importantly, internal or external parasites (worms or fleas), skin disorders or any illness can cause your cat to excessively lick or groom themselves or to lose more hair than usual. If your cat is vomiting hairballs ...

You can read the first SEVERAL chapters at Goodreads in a very pretty interface.. Part One: Melinda. 1. Rapunzel. The radishes called to her. Despite the hour and the warmth of her husband asleep beside her, Melinda slid from the covers, her bare feet arching against the cold floor.. She hurried down the stairs of the silent house, her lace nightgown billowing around her legs, and padded into the kitchen. The refrigerators searing light forced her eyes closed, but she could not bear to hesitate and reached blindly into the vegetable bin.. Her fingers fumbled with lettuce, cucumbers, and finally, the radishes. Despite her mothers voice scolding her to wash them first, she crunched into an icy bulb. Her teeth throbbed, but the peppery bite eased her desperation to eat. She leaned against the counter, sated, running one hand over her stomach.. Ten weeks along and still no belly bump. Probably a good thing. Her Aunt Bea waited until thirty-five to have a baby too, ending up wider than the door of ...
A few months ago, Lauren said, "hey, mom, did you know you have a rip in your jeans?" She was standing behind me and saw a one inch rip near my back pocket. I had no clue that it was ripped, but I did know I had worn those jeans ALL DAY! Yikes. How long do you wait to buy something as basic as a pair of new socks for yourself? Do you wait like I do until you have big holes??? For most of 2013, I knew that I wanted to get my hair cut because it had gotten pretty long. Every time I thought about it seriously, I would get side tracked and something always seemed to come up. While some ladies can pull off having long hair at age 50, I had come to the conclusion that I wasnt one of them! I decided at the beginning of December that I was just going to go for it and have eleven inches taken off. What did I need with almost an extra foot of hair??????

Asthma is one of the most common causes of chronic coughing in adult and senior cats. In fact, many animal guardians mistakenly think that cats who cough simply have hairballs.
In order to create, God has no need to design. Its important that the word "design" be properly understood. That God has created a flawless design does not mean that He first made a plan and then followed it. God, the Lord of the Earth and the heavens, needs no "designs" in order to create. God is exalted above all such deficiencies. His planning and creation take place at the same instant.. Whenever God wills a thing to come about, it is enough for Him just to say, "Be!". As verses of the Quran tell us:. His command when He desires a thing is just to say to it, "Be!" and it is. (Quran, 36: 82). [God is] the Originator of the heavens and Earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it, "Be!" and it is. (Quran, 2: 117). ...

Gastric bezoars are usually asymptomatic. When symptoms are present, the most common include postprandial fullness, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, and weight loss.. Once a doctor decides why a persons stage of stomach acid is low, these people can recommend ways to relieve or prevent signs and symptoms. A damaged vagus nerve prevents the muscles in the stomach and intestine from functioning, preventing food from moving through the digestive program properly. To form stomach acidity, you body needs points like b-vitamins, zinc, sodium and chloride ( essentially whole-food based). At doses lower than those used to treat infections, erythromycin stimulates contractions of typically the muscles of the abdomen and small intestine and it is useful for treating gastroparesis.. Gastroparesis results in poor grinding of food in the stomach into tiny particles and slow emptying of food from the belly into the small gut. Gastroparesis results in inadequate grinding of food simply by the ...

Loss is big. I could have tried to explain it to my five year old daughter. We could have talked about diseases and suffering. We could have talked statistics. But we didnt. I worried that the magic and wonder in her mind would be evicted to make room for it all. We visited http://www.locksoflove.org/ instead. We talked about sick princesses and we talked hair. She saw images of love and joy. She saw pictures of sacrifice and the celebration of spirit. When it was done my Rapunzel loving princess was ready for a haircut. The child who flips, flops and screams over a trim wanted ten inches cut off for Locks of Love. Naturally, I think this is a sign of greatness. Perhaps, she will grow up to bring peace to a war torn country or cure life threatening diseases. I will dab my eyes in interviews and say things like "She always showed an extraordinary capacity for empathy". Today I praised her from her new blond bob down to her glittery pink toes.

Once bezoars were used as a folk remedy for many different things, but that was proven as diy thrombosed hemorrhoid treatment some time ago. Complications such as vasovagal response, pain, abscess formation, urinary retention, bleeding, band slippage, and sepsis occur in less than 2 percent of patients undergoing rubber band ligation. It is also more likely to occur in older people because advancing age causes a natural weakening of this supportive tissue. It makes itching worse, it irritates fissures, and the scrubbing inflames hemorrhoids.

o′⟩, in the practical orthography of the Taa language, represents the glottalized or creaky vowel /o̰/. It is also used for /o/ and /ø/ in Romanized Uzbek, with the preferred typographical form being ⟨oʻ⟩ (Cyrillic ⟨ў⟩). Technically it is not a digraph in Uzbek, since ⟨ʻ⟩ is not a letter of the Uzbek alphabet, but rather a typographic convention for a diacritic. In handwriting the letter is written ⟨ō⟩ or ⟨ŏ⟩.. ⟨oa⟩ is used in English, where it commonly represents the /oʊ/ sound as in road, coal, boast, coaxing, etc. In Middle English, where the digraph originated, it represented /ɔː/, a pronunciation retained in the word broad and derivatives, and when the digraph is followed by an "r", as in soar and bezoar. The letters also represent two vowels, as in koala /oʊ.ɑː/, boas /oʊ.ə/, coaxial /oʊ.æ/, oasis /oʊ.eɪ/, and doable /uː.ə/.

Since the hairball is a secondary finding and often not the true cause of the problem, then the treatment needs to be aimed at the primary cause.. Whilst this is being identified it is imperative that the rabbit receives adequate fluid therapy (often intravenous fluids are the best route) syringe feeding or naso-oesophageal tube feeding if the rabbit is unwilling to accept syringe feeding, pain killers (analgesia), medication to keep and encourage the digestive system to start or keep moving (prokinetic medication) and encouragement to eat by offering lots of fresh hay, grass, greens, etc. Investigations to identify the primary cause may include: a thorough dental examination, often requiring sedation, x-rays of the spine and hips/pelvis to look for arthritic or spondylosis changes, skull x-rays to assess the tooth roots, blood tests and a thorough history from the owner to ascertain if any stressful occurrence has happened recently to explain the rabbits condition..

My feeling is that one or two vomits per month means that you are a cat.". Oh yeah, baby.. Dr. Jeff Latimer posted his sentiment about cat vomiting/hairball frequency in a message board of the Veterinary Information Network (VIN), an online community for veterinarians. "If it is more than this, or if it is increasing, there is likely some low-grade chronic cause, that if we find and fix, we are minimizing the chance for malignancy in the future.". If a cat is tossing up hairballs with wild abandon, there is more going on than most cat owners realize.. Dr. Latimer asked for the opinion of other veterinarians: "If you have a cat who has five hairballs per month all year long, do you want to work him up?". Even veterinarians are not exactly sure how much hairball tossing is copious or just a bit much, or when something should be done about it.. Feline specialist Dr. Michele Gaspar said that in her opinion it seems as though more colleagues are tuning in to the fact that cats are not a "normally ...
An almost constant temperature and artificial lighting lead to regular hair loss in indoor cats. Two-thirds of this lost hair can be swallowed during the long and frequent grooming sessions. It may become lodged in the digestive tract and form hairballs. Predisposition to hairballs is accentuated in so-called naturally "low-excreter" cats that have food-retaining pockets in their intestines and in semi long-haired and long-haired cats. Hairballs can lead to vomiting, constipation or, in more serious cases, even intestinal blockage. A combination of different types of fibers that encourages intestinal transit and helps to facilitate the elimination of the hair your cat swallows every day. Specific nutrients can help to trap calcium in the mouth, not allowing it to attach to the teeth and contribute to the formation of tartar. A combination of compatible fiber sources support gastrointestinal health, and fatty acids, which may help to reduce inflammation. Available in 6 lbs.. ...
Meanwhile, critics lauded the characters relationship and chemistry with Rapunzel enthusiastically, likening it to that of a romantic comedy. Writing for the Mountain Xpress, Ken Hanke felt that "what works best is the interplay between the two leads", concluding, "these animated characters are frankly more believable and charismatic than the human ones in ... Love and Other Drugs."[67] Sandie Angulo Chen of Common Sense Media wrote that the characters "relationship is built on mutual respect and trust, something completely missing in many earlier Disney movies."[68] The Miami Heralds Rene Rodriquez opined, "Even though they may seem to be boilerplate fairy-tale heroes, you genuinely come to care about Rapunzel and Flynn and root for them to be together,"[69] while Joe Neumaier of the Daily News simply called their relationship "cute".[70] Ted Fry of The Seattle Times wrote, "The back-and-forth banter of what inevitably becomes a courtship is consistently witty and given extra sparkle from ...

Small bowel obstruction surgery recovery - I had a small bowel obstruction surgery that was done by a general surgeon. What type of specialist /doctor do I see after for consultation? Surgeon and PCP. It is important for you to follow up with the surgeon who operated on you because he/she will be able to recognize if your bowels have returned to normal function. It will also be important for you to see your primary care doctor who will have the greatest continuity of care with you. In the event of a re-obstruction, be sure to return to the same surgeon. They will know your anatomy details.
BACKGROUND: Predicting the clinical course in adhesional small bowel obstruction is difficult. There are no validated clinical or radiologic features that allow early identification of patients likely to require surgical intervention. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of 100 patients consecutively admitted to a tertiary level teaching hospital over a 3-year period (2002-2004) who had acute adhesional small bowel obstruction and underwent computed tomography (CT). The primary outcomes that we assessed were conservative management or the need for surgical intervention. We investigated time to physiologic gastrointestinal function recovery as a secondary outcome. We examined independent predictors of surgical intervention in a bivariate analysis using a stepwise logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: Of the 100 patients investigated, we excluded 12. Of the 88 remaining patients, 58 (66%) were managed conservatively and 30 (34%) underwent surgery. Peritoneal fluid detected on a CT scan (n ...

Pigs are herbivores who graze continually. If they go without food for too long their liver starts to shut down/have problems functioning properly. Their digestive system is designed for continual operation. Because it is often a while after surgery before they eat again fasting them puts them at too high a risk for liver problems. I think after 12 hours without food the liver might start to be affected. Not totally sure on the time span though. Blood panels we´ve had done on ill pigs ALWAYS show a compromised liver when their food intake has been reduced ...

This Daily Kos diary is full of recommendations from pet owners for healthier foods. Fortunately, I was not feeding my animal pals any of the items on the list, but after reading jhritzs diary, I definitely began to question what I had been feeding them -- high priced branded food that turns out to be just the same as the store house brands, with animal by-products listed among the ingredients. So I switched to Wellness brand food over the weekend. My cat, Caliban (as seen above), has had hairball problems since the day I got him from a rescue society. Its early days, but so far, the new food is staying down and so are the hairballs. Oberon, the huskador retriever, will eat anything so his change of diet at the moment is more comforting to me than to him. I will be keeping close tabs on both of them over the coming weeks ...

The authors reported a case of small bowel obstruction secondary to internal herniation through a defect of the broad ligament. This is a rare cause of small bowel obstruction. A 42 year-old woman without previous abdominal surgery presented with episodes of abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Due to rather unspecific and changing symptoms and the fact that objective findings were normal the patient was discharged and admitted a couple of times before a computed tomography-scan showed small bowel obstruction. Acute diagnostic laparoscopy showed internal herniation of a loop of small bowel trapped in a 2 cm defect in the right side of the broad ligament. The defect was gently expanded bluntly and it was then possible to retract the strangulated part of the small bowel which afterwards was vital. The defect was sutured laparoscopically. The postoperative recovery was uneventful. This case demonstrates that a preoperative diagnosis is difficult and a high index of suspicion is necessary to prevent ...
The incidence of gallstones and gallbladder sludge is known to be higher in patients after gastrectomy than in general population. This higher incidence is probably related to surgical dissection of the vagus nerve branches and the anatomical gastrointestinal reconstruction. Therefore, some surgeons perform routine concomitant cholecystectomy during standard surgery for gastric malignancies. However, not all the patients who are diagnosed to have cholelithiasis after gastric cancer surgery will develop symptoms or require additional surgical treatments and a standard laparoscopic cholecystectomy is feasible even in those patients who underwent previous gastric surgery ...
Laparoscopic management of acute adhesive small bowel obstruction has been shown to be feasible and advantageous. However, widespread acceptance and application is still not observed. We describe the case report of a 58-year-old male who presented with signs and symptoms of small bowel obstruction status twenty years after two consecutive open surgeries for complicated acute appendicitis. The patient underwent successfully a laparoscopic band lysis after failure of conservative management. This is the first report of laparoscopic management of adhesive small bowel obstruction in Cameroon. Laparoscopic adhesiolysis of acute adhesive small bowel obstruction is feasible and safe by skilled surgeons in selected patients even in developing countries.
Bowel obstruction is a condition which has been known for many years. As time goes by, the problem is still often encountered at surgical emergency rooms. More than 20% of emergency surgical interventions are performed because of symptoms of digestive tract obstruction with the disease mostly situated in the small bowel. Rates of causative factors of the disease have changed over recent years and there have been increasingly more cases of small bowel obstruction caused by peritoneal adhesions, i.e., adhesive small bowel obstruction (ASBO).The aim of the study to analyse the reasons and incidence of adhesive small bowel obstruction during two periods of time (1990-1995 and 2005-2010).Material and methods. We performed a retrospective analysis of medical records of patients hospitalized at the 1st Department of General Surgery and Surgical Oncology of the Provincial Polyclinic Hospital in Płock between 1990 and 1995. The outcomes were compared with another period of 2005-2010.Results. We found ...
BACKGROUND: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) is well tolerated and effective in ameliorating diseases common to morbidly obese patients. A potential drawback, however, is the risk for stomal ulcers, probably due to acid and peptic digestion of the mucosa in the proximal Roux limb. METHODS: In 23 RYGBP patients (mean BMI 45 kg/m(2), age 39 years), the gastro-jejunostomy was performed by circular stapler and the gastric suture ring retrieved for histological examination. 13 consecutive patients received our standard totally transected 4 x 3 cm proximal gastric pouch. The anvil was passed transgastricly and reference biopsies were taken from the gastrotomy in the corpus of the stomach. In the last 10 patients, the pouch size was reduced to 2 x 3 cm by a modified surgical technique. RESULTS: All suture rings from the standard pouches consisted of corpus-fundus mucosa with a large amount of parietal cells, histologically identical to the reference biopsies from the gastrotomy. Also, the 10 suture ...
