Faecal composition after surgery for Hirschsprung's disease. (1/295)

Diarrhoea and perianal excoriation occur frequently after the endorectal pull-through operation for Hirschsprung's disease. A new method of faecal analysis was performed on 3-day stool collections in 17 postoperative Hirschsprung patients and in 14 normal children, in order to define the faecal abnormality and to establish the cause of perianal excoriation in these patients. Loose stools in postoperative patients were deficient in dry solid content and contained an excess of extractable faecal water. This also had a raised electrolyte concentration, particularly with respect to sodium. Total daily output of faecal water was normal. Formed stools from postoperative patients were also deficient in drysolids but had a normal extractable water content. Excess extractable faecal water, the main abnormality of loose stools in these patients, is the result of abnormal water absorption from the distal colon. Perianal excoriation in these patients is most closely associated with the concentration of sodium in faecal water.  (+info)

Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction: treatment and long term follow up of 44 patients. (2/295)

AIMS: To document the long term course of chronic idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction syndrome (CIIPS) in children with defined enteric neuromuscular disease, and the place and type of surgery used in their management; in addition, to identify prognostic factors. METHODS: Children with CIIPS were investigated and treated prospectively. RESULTS: Twenty four children presented congenitally, eight during the 1st year of life, and 10 later. Twenty two had myopathy and 16 neuropathy (11 familial). Malrotation was present in 16 patients, 10 had short small intestine, six had non-hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, and 16 had urinary tract involvement. Thirty two patients needed long term parenteral nutrition (TPN): for less than six months in 19 and for more than six months in 13, 10 of whom are TPN dependent; 14 are now enteral feeding. Prokinetic treatment improved six of 22. Intestinal decompression stomas were used in 36, colostomy relieved symptoms in five of 11, and ileostomy in 16 of 31. A poor outcome (death (14) or TPN dependence (10)) was seen with malrotation (13 of 16), short small bowel (eight of nine), urinary tract involvement (12 of 16), and myopathic histology (15 of 22). CONCLUSIONS: In CIIPS drugs are not helpful but decompression stomas are. Outcome was poor in 24 of 44 children (15 muscle disorder, 10 nerve disease).  (+info)

Systemic lupus erythematosus with a giant rectal ulcer and perforation. (3/295)

A 41-year-old man with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who developed pelvic inflammation due to perforation of a giant rectal ulcer is described. The patient presented with persistent diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever without development of disease activity of SLE. Endoscopic and radiological examinations revealed a perforated giant ulcer on the posterior wall at the rectum below the peritoneal evagination. The ulcerated area was decreased after a colostomy was performed at the transverse colon to preserve anal function. The patient is currently being monitored on an outpatient basis. It should be noted that life-threatening complications such as perforated ulcer of the intestinal tract could occur without SLE disease activity.  (+info)

Closure of colostomy. (5/295)

We analyzed the records of 77 cases of loop colostomy closure in Vietnam War Casualties. All records were complete from the date of injury to discharge following colostomy closure. Simple of the loop colostomy was performed in 44 patients and resection of the stoma and reanastomosis of bowel segments was performed in 33 patients. Average operating time for simple closure of the loop was 70 minutes compared to 115 minutes for resection and anastomosis. Nasogastric suction was used less frequently and for a shorter time with simple loop closure. The total postoperative complication rate was 9% with simple loop closure as compared to 24% for resection and anastomosis. Simple closure of the loop described in this report is technically easier and as safe as resection of the stoma and reanastomosis.  (+info)

Effect of elective abdominal surgery on human colon protein synthesis in situ. (6/295)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of elective abdominal surgery on the rate of human colon fractional protein synthesis in situ. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Efficient intestinal protein synthesis plays an important role in the physiology and pathophysiology of the intestinal tract, allowing preservation of gut integrity and thereby preventing bacterial or endotoxin translocation. Because of species differences, animal studies have only limited applicability to human intestinal protein metabolism, and because of methodologic restrictions, no studies on colon protein synthesis in situ are available in humans. METHODS: The authors used advanced mass spectrometry techniques (capillary gas chromatography and combustion isotope ratio mass spectrometry) to determine directly the incorporation rate of 1-[13C]-leucine into colon mucosal protein in control subjects and nonseptic postoperative patients. All subjects had a colostomy, which allowed easy access to the colon mucosa, and consecutive sampling from the same tissue was performed during continuous isotope infusion (0.16 micromol/kg per minute). RESULTS: Control subjects demonstrated a colon protein fractional synthetic rate of 0.74 +/- 0.09% per hour. In postsurgical patients, colon protein synthesis was significantly higher and the tissue free leucine enrichment was significantly lower, compatible with an increased colon proteolytic rate. CONCLUSIONS: Elective abdominal surgery followed by an uncomplicated postoperative course is associated with a stimulation of colon protein synthesis and possibly also of protein degradation. The postoperative rate of colon protein synthesis is, compared with other tissues, among the highest measured thus far in humans.  (+info)

Importance of the fecal stream on the induction of colon tumors by azoxymethane in rats. (7/295)

The effect of the fecal stream on intestinal carcinogenesis with azoxymethane was studied in male rats. Colostomies were performed approximately 2 cm distal to the cecum in 50 Sprague-Dawley rats to produce a 20-cm segment of nonfunctional large bowel; an additional 50 animals were left intact. Each of these groups was divided equally and was fed a normal diet or a diet containing 2% cholestyramine by weight. All animals were given azoxymethan s.c. At the end of 7 months all rats were sacrificed. The animals with colostomies developed significantly fewer tumors in the defunctionalized bowel than did intact animals in the same bowel segment. Cholestyramine appeared to increase the tumor yield in the large bowel of the intact animals but had no effect on the number of tumors in the defunctionalized bowel. Further, the intact animals on both dietary regimens developed a greater number of large tumors in the distal 20 cm of bowel. The results show that the fecal stream alters the carcinogenic activity of azoxymethane in the large bowel of the rat. It also appears that the carcinogen can reach its target tissue by a route other than the fecal stream.  (+info)

Gastrocolic and gastrojejunocolic fistulae: report of twelve cases and review of the literature. (8/295)

Seven gastrocolic and five gastrojejunocolic fistulae were recorded at Charity Hospital between 1940 and 1970. Such fistulae occurred in males more often than females. In this series, as in others, the most common cause was gastric surgery for peptic ulcer disease. Pain, diarrhea, and weight loss were clinical findings in half the patients; anemia, leukocytosis, electrolyte disturbances and hypoalbuminemia were common laboratory findings. A fistula was demonstrated radiologically in nine of the twelve patients, management of these patients included no operation (3); two-stage procedure (2); and one-stage procedure (7); with a recent trend toward the one-stage procedure. A case report of a fistula resulting from postoperative complications of perforative appendicitis in which a successful combination of hyperalimentation and diverting colostomy was used is presented.  (+info)

A colostomy requires a hospital stay of about 3 days to a week. Your stay will probably be longer if the colostomy was performed for an emergency. During your hospital stay, youll learn to care for your colostomy and the appliance or pouch that collects your stool. Your nurse will show you how to clean your stoma. After you go home, youll do this gently every day with warm water only. Then gently pat dry or allow the area to air dry. Dont worry if you see a little bit of blood. Use your time in the hospital to learn how to care for your colostomy. If you have an ascending or transverse colostomy, you will need to wear a slim, lightweight, drainable pouch at all times. There are many different types of pouches, varying in cost and made from odor-resistant materials. Some people with a descending or sigmoid colostomy can eventually learn to predict when their bowels will move and wear a pouch only when they expect a movement. They may also be able to master a process called irrigation to ...
A colostomy is a surgical procedure that is done when part of the large intestine (colon or rectum) has been removed and the remaining bowel cannot function normally. The colostomy may be temporary, until the colon or rectum heals, or it may be permanent if the entire lower colon or rectum was removed.. In colostomy surgery, the surgeon makes a cut through the skin on the persons abdomen. He or she then sews the end of the upper part of the intestine (where the stool continues to be made) to the opening in the skin. This opening is called a colostomy. The diseased part of the intestine is usually removed during the surgery. (Sometimes, it may be left in place and allowed to heal, depending on the type of disease or injury the person has.). Stool continues to be made in the upper part of the intestine and passes out of the body through the colostomy. A disposable bag is placed on the skin over the colostomy opening to collect stool. A pouch may also be created inside the persons body, where ...

After a surgeon has removed the diseased part of your bowel during an operation called a bowel resection, he or she will then sew the two healthy ends of your bowel back together. Sometimes the bowel tissue needs more time to heal before the reattachment, so a temporary colostomy is needed. Sometimes the entire lower colon or rectum is removed because it is diseased. In those cases, the colostomy will be permanent.. To perform a colostomy, the surgeon makes an opening through the skin on your abdomen and connects your bowel to that opening. This opening is called a stoma or, sometimes, a colostomy. Your stool passes out of your body through the opening. A disposable bag is attached over the opening to collect stool.. ...

Colostomy irrigation is a procedure that gives people with a colostomy more control over the elimination of waste. Irrigation stimulates the intestine to function at a regular time and is generally done at the same time every day or every other day.. In this procedure, an irrigation cone and tube are connected to the stoma (the end of the exposed intestine), and irrigation fluid is flushed through the intestine to clear it of waste.. People who use irrigation may need only a cover or pad over the stoma and may not need a colostomy bag. Irrigation requires a health professionals approval and guidance. ...

An hour later I had washed him out, resected the colon with the gaping hole, and fashioned an end colostomy. Primary anastomosis was not a consideration given the degree of contamination and pressor sustained systolics in the 80s. We call it the Hartmanns procedure; an old school operation that is not used as often as it once was. We found that it isnt always so easy to reverse a colostomy (70% success rate) and the procedure itself can result in significant morbidity. Nowadays we find we can treat many cases of perforated diverticulitis medically with antibiotics alone. Primary anastomosis is performed even on unprepped bowel in cases of mild contamination and hemodynamic stability. Sometimes you can even get away with just laparoscopically washing out the pelvis, placing some drains, and bringing the patient back later on, for definitive one stage surgery, once the sepsis clears. Lots of options. But there is still a role for the Hartmanns procedure. Four or five times a year I find myself ...
That ^ is what I got instead of surgery, for Six. Weeks. In case you missed it, after chemo on Wednesday (16th), a couple of hours later, my colostomy prolapsed. These are the basics of a prolapse, and no worries, no pics.. A prolapse is much more psychologically damaging than physical. This is not at all uncommon in colostomy or ileostomy, but no one prepares you for the possibility either, which is why you end up so damn shocked, and dealing with all the mental and emotional fallout. It would be most helpful if medical would prepare for this possibility, and yes, I know theres no desire to alarm people, but thats a bullshit excuse in this case. Being forewarned, just in case, would go a long way in making a prolapse less traumatic..

Irrigating your colostomy is a way to keep yourself free from bowel movements for 24 to 48 hours. Many patients are put off by the procedure at first, but with practice it can become part of your routine. Advantages of irrigation are freedom of movement (after irrigation, you wont need your colostomy pouch for a day), more comfort, less gas, less odor, less diarrhea, less constipation, and less skin irritation.

Did you know colostomies can be reversed? "Basically, I needed the colostomy in the first place because it was my big bowel that was damaged, so they fitted the stoma while it was mending, to take all pressure off digestion in that area, " Kayleigh explains.

"That very first turd, after not pooping at all for like six months or something, that was really, really weird, " she tells. "Those poops were like teeny and white. They did advise me that might be the case, because it would be likely that there had just been some sitting in there the entire time, just waiting to come out and theyd like, I dont know, kind of crystallized?

I know you are scared and nervous. We all were. You will get through this because you are a strong woman. I was dianosed Stage III rectal cancer in Sept 06 at age 32. I have a permanent colostomy. It takes some getting used to, but it is no big deal. Make up your mind right now that you refuse to let you life be dictated by sh*t!!! You are just going to have a septic tank instead of a sewer. If you can meet with an ET nurse before surgery. The best thing I did was have her put a bag on me and send me out into the world to live with for a day. I quickly realized it was not noticeable at all under my clothes and no one knew it was there. My colostomy does not prevent me from doing anything that I previously did, except maybe make mad dashes to bathrooms at a moments notice (dont miss that part at all). I have lots of tips and would be happy to answer any questions pertaining to colostomy if you would like to email me. I will keep you in my prayers for a successful surgery and quick ...
Why this is important:- No recent randomised controlled trials were identified that fully address this question. The evidence is old and does not reflect current practice. In addition, in most of the studies the patients are sedated before regional anaesthesia is administered, and this is not taken into account when analysing the results. The study design for the proposed research would be best addressed by a randomised controlled trial. This would ideally be a multi-centre trial including 3000 participants in each arm. This is achievable given that there are about 70,000 to 75,000 hip fractures a year in the UK. The study should have three arms that look at spinal anaesthesia versus spinal anaesthesia plus sedation versus general anaesthesia; this would separate those with regional anaesthesia from those with regional anaesthesia plus sedation. The study would also need to control for surgery, especially type of fracture, prosthesis and grade of surgeon ...
also called |b>AP resection or APR|/b>. A type of surgery for rectal cancer, in which 2 cuts are made, one in the abdomen (belly), and the other around the anus. This allows removal of the anus and tissues around it. A permanent colostomy is needed after this surgery. See also |b>abdomen|/b>, |b>anus|/b>, |b>colostomy|/b>,|b> rectum|/b>.
Bowel resection requires general anesthesia. You may stay in the hospital for 4 to 7 days or as long as 2 weeks after surgery.. Sometimes the two parts of the colon or rectum cannot be reattached, so the surgeon performs a colostomy. This creates an opening, called a stoma, on the outside of the body for the stool, or feces, to pass through into a colostomy bag. Usually the colostomy is temporary, until the colon or rectum heals. If the lower part of the rectum has been removed, the colostomy is permanent. Most people who have colon cancer dont need a colostomy.. Treatment after bowel resection may include radiation therapy and chemotherapy, in case there are any cancer cells remaining. Radiation therapy uses X-rays to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy uses drugs-given either as pills or through a needle-to kill them.. Follow-up care is important because colorectal cancer can come back after surgery, especially if it was not discovered when it was in an early stage.. ...

In most cases, surgery is required to achieve a complete cure. Rectal cancer surgery involves removing the portion of rectum containing the cancer along with its associated lymph nodes. The colon is then connected to the rectum. If the rectal cancer is very low in the rectum or is attached to the anal sphincter it may not be possible to connect the intestine together and a permanent colostomy is needed. A colostomy is an opening of the intestine into a bag on the skin.. A number of different techniques can be used to perform rectal cancer surgery. North Texas Colon and Rectal associates specialize in minimally invasive techniques including laparoscopy and robotic surgery. Minimally invasive techniques that result in less pain and shorter recovery time.. Occasionally the rectal cancer is caught very early and can be removed through the anus and without an incision in the abdomen. This is called a transanal local excision. North Texas Colon and Rectal associates also specialize in minimally ...
The management of colon injuries has undergone major changes in the last three decades. After the World War II era all colonic injuries were routinely managed by performing a colostomy. The policy of mandatory colostomy was carried on until the 1970s. This was gradually replaced by primary repair in selected cases in the late 1970s and by liberal primary repair in most cases in the 1990s.. The first strong study to challenge the mandatory colostomy practice was made by Stone and Fabian in 1979 [24]. In a prospective randomized study of 268 patients they showed that in selected patients primary repair was associated with fewer complications than colostomy (15% vs. 29%, p , 0.05). The authors concluded that patients that satisfied the specific criteria of, 1) preoperative shock never being profound; 2) blood loss less than 20% of estimated normal volume; 3) no more than two intra-abdominal organs injured; 4) minimal fecal contamination; 5) operation within eight hours; and, 6) wounds of colon ...
I have decided to have a permanent colostomy and the hospital called me today and it is booked for 2 weeks time. This doesnt give me a lot of time to adjust, but as my husband said, it was a decision I made a long time ago - now its a matter of going through the process and dealing with a new lifestyle after. I have had two anal sphincter repairs, one temporary colostomy, the sacral nerve stimulator and physio. All to no avail. When the anal area is on fire, I use Panadeine because the codeine kills two problems. I try to avoid the latter for reasons of potential addiction, but when Im desperate I resort to that. ...
Diversion colitis is a condition where inflammation occurs in the part of the colon that is bypassed after ostomy surgery (ileostomy or colostomy).
An investigation on the difference in stoma hernia frequency related to surgical technique when incising the fascia. All patients planned for elective colostomy formation are to be included. Patients undergoing rectal resection with a TME and a colostomy (Hartmanns procedure) for rectal cancer, abdominoperineal resection for rectal cancer or diverting colostomy for any reason are all included.. The three groups for randomization are:. A. circular incision in the abdominal wall fascia B. cruciate incision in the abdominal wall fascia C. mesh enforced cruciate incision in the abdominal wall fascia Primary endpoint is the parastomal hernia rate within 12 months from index surgery. Secondary end-points include clinical variables, re-admission and/or re-operation due to any stoma complication, quality of life and health economy analyses, at 12 months. ...
During an end sigmoid diversion colostomy, the end of the sigmoid colon is brought through the abdominal wall, where it may be turned under, like a cuff. The edges of the colon are then stitched to the skin of the abdominal wall to form an opening called a stoma. Stool drains from the stoma into a bag or pouch attached to the abdomen.
In general terms, think of the inside of your GI tract as a separate enviroment that the inside of your body in terms of thinking about infection. Think of yourself topology-wise as a donut, and the GI tract lumen is the donut hole. The tract is essentially continuous with the external enviroment (this is why bacteria thats not a problem hanging out in your gut can make you very sick if your gut gets perforated). As far as infection goes, if the lower colon/anus are removed, then the opening would give access to your bodys internal environment if it werent shut, which would lead to infection. If theres a Hartmanns pouch, however, with the upper end of the pouch shut, then theres no access to the internal enviroment. If theres a double-barrel or loop colostomy, the only openings are to the mouth, anus, and stoma openings--no access to the internal environment (in that case, topology-wise youre a donut with two donut holes). ...

Dont worry about it. Youre still in a position where the disease could be controlled with medications and it may just be that you havent found the right ones yet. I had problems with one TNF-A inhibitor but am doing fine with a different one. That said, a colostomy isnt the end of the world. Like you, Im 28 and Ive had an ileostomy since 21. It sucks a lot of the time but it certainly has its benefits. Right now though you should probably focus on getting the disease controlled through medication. You can quit medicine and take different kinds of drugs but once youve had your colon cut out of you you cant get it back ...

The surgical procedure that includes linking a part of the colon onto the anterior wall of the abdomen is called colostomy. This is done in case of severe damage to the bowel. The purpose of this surgery is to form an opening called stoma at the end of the large intestine. After colostomy, feces leave the clients body through the abdomen. The colostomy can be either temporary or permanent relying on the reasons behind this surgery. The stoma can be long-term in case of bowel cancer or serious injury. It is temporary in case of bowel infection, stab or injuries, or inflammation. Colostomy is required in diseases such as Crohns disease, bowel cancer, blocked bowel, diverticulitis, or a serious injury to the bowel ...

Colostomy. With a colostomy, the large intestine is divided into 2 sections. The ends of the intestine are brought through openings in the stomach. The upper section lets stool pass through the opening (stoma) and into a collection bag. The lower section lets mucus made by the intestine pass into a collection bag. A colostomy does not damage your childs digestion. Your child can also grow before the next surgery is needed. And when the next surgery is done on the lower section of the intestine, there wont be any stool there to infect the area. The nursing staff and other healthcare professionals that work with your childs surgeon can help you learn to take care of the colostomy. Local and national support groups may also be helpful ...
A colostomy is performed to divert the faecal stream away from the site of an abnormality downstream such as a blockage. It is also performed where the bowel is resected usually for a tumour and it is not safe or it is deemed that the patient will have unacceptable function if a join up is attempted. The other main reason is for incontinence that cannot be corrected by any other means.. ...
If you have a temporary colostomy, youll need another operation to reverse it at a later date.. A colostomy reversal will only be carried out when youre in good health and have fully recovered from the effects of the initial operation. This will usually be at least 12 weeks after the initial colostomy surgery.. The reversal may need to be delayed for longer if you need further treatment, such as chemotherapy, or you havent recovered from the original operation. But theres no time limit for having a reversal, and some people live with their colostomy for several years before its reversed.. ...

Thats four years worth of poop," a doctor remarks when Eugene (Zach Cregger)-who wakes up from a coma after his best friend, Tucker (Trevor Moore), wallops him with a baseball bat, only to discover that his virginal high-school sweetheart is now a Playboy centerfold-voids his bowels.

Its just one of those things you do for a friend," said Mr. Shank of Perrysburg Township. "I wouldnt hesitate to do it again.".

Dr. Shintani: My interest in CAM started when I learned my father got cancer and a permanent colostomy when I was 6 months old. We were told there was no cure and that he would die soon, but he lived another 40 years. Because of that, I always wondered why cancer couldnt be cured, and that we should be looking for alternatives.. Results from the 5-ALA study and other research conducted by the CAM department contribute to the growing knowledge and interest in complementary and alternative medicine. As seen with the vast amount of dietary supplements and growing number of alternative therapies (such as acupuncture and massage), the use of CAM is steadily increasing, especially with those that are living with chronic illnesses. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the definition of "Complementary medicine" refers to use of CAM together with conventional or western medicine, such as using acupuncture in addition to usual care. "Alternative medicine" refers to ...

One of the known risks of abdominal surgery is infection, and like all infections, the earlier the treatment the better the outcome. A man presented to the emergency room a week and a half after a colostomy closure surgery. When the man presented to the emergency room, he had obvious signs of infection and an abdominal problem that would require surgery. There was an initial delay in calling for a surgeon. Then, a sequence of surgeons had to be called before any surgeon agreed to come to the hospital to operate on the man. As a result, there was a delay of over eight hours in starting the emergency operation which was needed to treat the infection and its cause. Due to the delay, the infection spread and the patient did not survive. View All Results ...

The Evolution of Minimally Invasive Techniques in Restoration of Colonic Continuity. By Stefan H.E.M. Clermonts, Laurents P.S. Stassen and David D.E. Zimmerman. Restoration of bowel continuity after Hartmanns procedure is considered technically challenging and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. This is the main reason why restoration of intestinal continuity is often not attempted. Over the past decade, considerable international experience has gained on this topic with new minimally invasive techniques being developed. This review details the evolution of minimally invasive techniques in restoration of colonic continuity after Hartmanns procedure. A comprehensive search of PubMed and Embase was done. Different restoration modalities were included. Eight studies, from six different countries, in which multiport laparoscopic restoration of continuity was compared to conventional open restoration of bowel continuity, were included. In the total of 254 patients, continuity was ...
Stomas are generally spherical, are in most cases shades of purple and red, and are fleshy and wet. In addition they a great deal variations in measurement (circumference). If you or your healthcare provider notes a stoma color of brown, pink, or black, your doctor must be notified directly. A metamorphosis in color might mean that the pouching equipment may be on too tight or an inner problem is provided. Any color instead of pink or pink might indicate that the stoma isnt perfused, which might result in demise. Regardless of the reason for the change in stoma color, remember to notify the doctor instantly ...

Sigmoid volvulus is a common cause of large bowel obstruction in western countries and Africa. It accounts for 25% of the patients admitted to the hospital for large bowel obstruction. The acute management of sigmoid volvulus is sigmoidoscopic decompression. However, the recurrence rate can be as high as 60% in some series. Recurrent sigmoid volvulus in elderly patients who are not fit for definitive surgery is difficult to manage. The percutaneous endoscopic placement of two percutaneous endoscopic colostomy tube placement is a simple and relatively safe procedure. The two tubes should be left open to act as vents for the colon from over-distending. In our opinion, this aspect is key to its success as it keeps the sigmoid colon deflated until adhesions form between the colon and the abdominal wall ...
