Enteric duplication cysts (EDCs) are rare congenital malformations formed during the embryonic development of the digestive tract. They are usually detected prenatally or in the first years of life. The size, location, type, mucosal pattern and presence of complications produce a varied clinical presentation and different imaging findings. Ultrasonography (US) is the most used imaging method for diagnosis. Magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomography (CT) are less frequently used, but can be helpful in cases of difficult surgical approach. Conservative surgery is the treatment of choice. Pathology confirms the intestinal origin of the cyst, showing a layer of smooth muscle in the wall and an epithelial lining inside, resembling some part of the gastrointestinal tract (GT). We review the different forms of presentation of the EDCs, showing both the typical and atypical imaging findings with the different imaging techniques. We correlate the imaging findings with the surgical results and the final

INTRODUCTION: Intestinal malrotation is a developmental anomaly of intestinal fixation and rotation caused by a disruption in the normal embryologic development of the bowel. Normal rotation takes place around the superior mesenteric artery. Incomplete rotation and midgut volvulus is the commonest type of anomaly. Intestinal obstruction is the commonest presentation in symptomatic cases.. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 2000 and 2006, 73 children with acute abdomen underwent a diagnostic laparoscopy procedure. In this paper, we report 7 cases (9.5%) of midgut malrotation with volvulus and acute abdomen. Age range was between 7 and 12 years; there were 4 females and 3 males. They all presented with features of intestinal obstruction. A diagnosis of malrotation was established in only 1 patient, whereas the other 6 were diagnosed on laparoscopy. A laparoscopic Ladds procedure was successfully performed for all cases. There were no postoperative complications.. DISCUSSION: Intestinal malrotation ...
From UniProt:. Congenital short bowel syndrome (CSBS): A disease characterized by a shortened small intestine, intestinal malrotation, and malabsorption. The mean length of the small intestine in CSBS patients is approximately 50 cm, compared with a normal length at birth of 190-280 cm. Patients with CSBS may develop severe malnutrition as a result of the hugely reduced absorptive surface of the small intestine. Infants require parenteral nutrition for survival. However, parenteral nutrition itself causes life-threatening complications such as sepsis and liver failure which are associated with a high rate of mortality early in life. [MIM:615237]. ...
1) Malrotation is twisting of the intestines (or bowel) caused by abnormal development while a fetus is in utero, and can cause obstruction. Malrotation occurs in 1 out of every 500 births in the United States. Some children with intestinal malrotation are born with other associated conditions, including: other defects of the digestive system heart defects abnormalities of other organs, including the spleen or liver Some kids with malrotation never experience complications and are never diagnosed. But most develop symptoms during infancy, and the majority are diagnosed by 1 year of age. Although surgery is required to repair malrotation, most kids will go on to grow and develop normally after treatment. (2) Intestinal malrotation is a birth defect involving a malformation of the intestinal tract. Intestinal malrotation is an abnormality that occurs while a fetus is forming in its mothers uterus. Malrotation occurs when the intestine does not make these turns as it should. In addition, ...
The aim of this study was to assess the value of an unusual relative position of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and vein (SMV) to screen intestinal malrotation with a higher risk of volvulus.. First, feasibility study was done to prove the reproducibility of ultrasound in diagnosis of anormal mesenteric vessels position.. A systematic screening of the mesenteric vessels position was performed at each pregnancy required ultrasound.. When the fœtus had an unusual position of the mesenteric vessels, an MRI was suggested between 30 and 35 GA and the couple met the pediatric surgery team.. Few days after birth, an abdominal ultrasound was achieved as well as a barium enema and upper gastrointestinal. If there were a hight probability of malrotation with a higher risk of volvulus, a prophylactic surgery was proposed. The children were flollowed up during 1 year. ...

It classically induces severe neonatal intestinal obstruction requiring surgical treatment which currently ensures a favourable prognosis for most of the affected children. Although the great majority of cases are sporadic, the existence of familial forms (10% of cases) has allowed localization and then identificalion of an autosomal dominant gene on chromosome 10, the RET proto-oncogene, responsible for 50% of familial forms and 15% of sporadic cases. A second gene has been recently localized on chromosome 13, the endothelin beta receptor (EDNRB) gene. Two homozygous mutations of the EDNRB gene have heen identified in two ...

OBJECTIVE: Intestinal malrotation classically presents in the neonatal period with bilious vomiting. However, population studies suggest that up to two-thirds of these patients are diagnosed later in childhood or in adulthood. Increased morbidity in the adult population has been reported. Local experience suggested that surgery was technically more difficult in older children and led to the hypothesis that it would be associated with increased morbidity. METHODS: A retrospective case note analysis was performed on all children presenting with intestinal malrotation to a tertiary referral center between January 2002 and November 2014. Case notes and operation records were reviewed and those who underwent laparotomy for confirmed malrotation were included. Children were grouped as infants (| 1 year) and older (| 1 year). The primary outcome was total emergency reoperation rate. Secondary outcomes were requirement for a bypass at reoperation and mortality. RESULTS: A total of 131 children with malrotation

Currarino syndrome is a condition characterized by the combination of partial absence of the sacrum; anal and rectal abnormalities; and an abnormal mass in front of the sacrum due to a meningocoele or teratoma. The malformations in Currarino syndrome are all in tissues that have their embryological origin in the tail bud and may reflect disturbances in its formation during early embryonic life. A mutation (change) in a gene called the HLXB9 homeobox gene has been identified as responsible for autosomal dominant Currarino syndrome, also known as hereditary sacral agenesis.
A 60 year-old male presented with acute severe abdominal pain. CT shows twisting of small bowel and mesentery around superior mesenteric artery (whirl sign).. Malrotation is incomplete rotation of the bowel during embryologic development. As a result, the mesenteric root, which extends from the duodenojejunal junction (ligament of Treitz) to ilioceacal junction is shortened. The resultant short mesenteric root predisposes to volvulus of midgut (the portion of bowel supplied by the superior mesenteric artery). Midgut volvulus is the subsequent twisting of bowel around the superior mesenteric artery leading to bowel obstruction and ischemia. Urgent surgical repair is often required to prevent ischemia or to resect infarcted bowel loops.. Reference: WE Berdon: Midgut Volvulus with Whirlpool sign. AJR;1999:172:1689-1690..

A 38-year-old woman in the 27th week of gestation was admitted for sudden onset of epigastric pain, vomiting, and nausea, which worsened after food ingestion. The patient described 1 year of self-limited episodes of abdominal pain that improved with defecation and were associated with a change in frequency and consistency of stools that were interpreted as irritable bowel syndrome. On physical examination, she had stable vital signs, a distended abdomen, and tenderness in both upper quadrants. Blood tests showed leukocytosis 21.8 x 109/L and C-reactive protein 10 mg/L. Abdominal x-ray was normal, and abdominal ultrasonography revealed a small amount of anechogenic fluid between intestinal loops and in the hepatorenal recess. Obstetric ultrasonography showed fetal well-being. Upper endoscopy was inconclusive because of abundant gastric residual fluid. Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging revealed features of malrotation (the large bowel was predominantly located on the left side and the ...

The embryology of malrotation was first described by Mall in 1898, followed later by Dott, who in 1923 described the relationship between anatomy and clinical outcome. The process of intestinal rotation and fixation begins during the 5th gestational week and involves a series of orderly steps beginning with elongation and herniation of the bowel into the umbilical cord. The segments of developing midgut proximal and distal to the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) are termed the pre-arterial or duodeno-jejunal (DJ) limb and post-arterial or ceco-colic (CC) limb; they form a U loop around the SMA axis. Over the next 5 weeks, the bowel undergoes 270 degrees of counter-clockwise rotation around the SMA as it returns to the peritoneal cavity, resulting in fixation of the bowel in its normal anatomic position.. During stage I of rotation (5th-10th week of gestation), the DJ loop begins superior to the SMA and rotates 90 degrees counter-clockwise to a position to the right of the SMA, while the CC loop ...
Malrotation in children should be treated as an emergency. This is because volvulus is usually life-threatening in nature and immediate surgery is the only solution.
Midgut volvulus due to malrotation may result in loss of the small bowel. Until now, after derotation of the volvulus, pediatric surgeons do not deal with the mesenteric thrombosis, which causes continuing ischemia of the intestine. On occasion, a s
Malrotation is a type of obstruction caused by abnormal development of the intestines while a fetus is in the womb. Find out more about this condition and the complications it can cause.
Malrotation is the failure of normal intestinal rotation and fixation during the development of the fetus. In the first trimester of pregnancy, the lungs develop very quickly and the fetus (babys) intestines go outside of the belly for a certain time then returns back to the belly. Malrotation happens when the intestine does not follow the normal way that they are supposed to be inside the belly. When malrotation is present, there are two things that can give a child problems: (1) volvulus which is when the intestine twists upon itself, cutting off its own blood supply and (2) abnormal adhesions or bands that can partially block the passage of contents within the intestines. Volvulus (Figure 1) is dangerous because it can cut off the blood supply to most of the intestines causing the intestines, and sometimes the child, to die ...
The capillary subtype is most commonly located on the skin of the perineum, small intestine, and appendix. It is usually single, with no capsule and well defined; half of this subtype is accompanied by ulcers of the mucosa, edema, and swelling. Eighty percent of sigmoid-rectum malformations are of the cavernous type; unlike the first ones, these have large amounts of endothelial cells and multiple layers of them [1-9].. Most are asymptomatic, or show painless hemorrhage of the digestive tract, whether acute, chronic, or recurrent, and may be mistaken for hemorrhoidal pathologies of colon inflammatory disease. Eighty percent of the patients show intraluminal gastrointestinal bleeding symptoms, and 50 % have chronic anemia. Intestinal obstruction is possible but rare [1].. Differential diagnosis includes adenomatous polyps, tumors, hemorrhoids, and other cystic masses such as: intestinal duplications, mesothelial cysts, and pseudocysts. Most of the intestinal HLs are incidental findings, during an ...

Hirschsprung disease is a neonatal discovery in almost all cases, and the association of Hirschsprung disease in adults with symptomatic intestinal malrotation is unusual. This combination delays diagnosis and can lead to mistake in surgical strategy. A 43-year-old patient with a history of colectomy for colonic inertia and megadolichocolon was admitted to the Carcassonne Hospital emergency room for a volvulus of small bowel obstruction in a chronic intestinal obstruction context with episodes of acute, variable-looking occlusive syndromes. Intestinal malrotation was discovered during surgical small bowel detorsion. The acute occlusion syndrome recurred after the procedure. In view of the unfavorable evolution, an emptying of the dilated small bowel and a discharge ileostomy upstream of the rectum were performed. In the face of postoperative improvement, rectal manometry and deep full parietal rectal biopsies made it possible to highlight the diagnosis of Hirschsprung disease. The patient thus had

With acutely ill patients, consider emergency surgery laparotomy if there is a high index of suspicion.. Plain radiography may demonstrate signs of duodenal obstruction with dilatation of the proximal duodenum and stomach but it is often non-specific. Upper gastrointestinal series is the modality of choice for the evaluation of malrotation as it will show an abnormal position of the duodeno-jejunal flexure (ligament of Treitz). In cases of malrotation complicated with volvulus, it demonstrates a corkscrew appearance of the distal duodenum and jejunum. In cases of obstructing Ladd bands, it will reveal a duodenal obstruction.. In equivocal cases, contrast enema, may be helpful by showing the caecum at an abnormal location.. It is usually discovered near birth, but in some cases is not discovered until adulthood.[2] In adults, the whirlpool sign of the superior mesenteric artery can be useful in identifying malrotation.[3]. ...
Down Syndrome (DS) is a genetic disorder caused by a triplication of the 21st chromosome. Down syndrome was first discovered by Dr. John Langdon Down in 1866 [431]. In 1958 Professor Jerome Lejeune discovered Down syndrome was caused by a third copy of the 21st chromosome - Trisomy 21 [430]. It is the most common genetic cause of mental retardation in society [36], occurring 1 in every 750 live births [412]. Down syndrome has a higher rate of developing congenital heart defects, leukemia, Alzheimer’s Disease, immune dysfunction, cognitive defects, thyroid disorders, gastrointestinal anomalies [432], and nutrient deficiencies than the general population. It is believed to be due to this aneuploidy [433] of the syndrome causing gene over-expressions [255, 257-259, 400, 412-421]. It has been confirmed by a few studies that the gene dosage effect hypothesis is true [420-427]. That is, the phenotype of DS is caused by the over-expression of certain genes on the human chromosome 21 [420-427]. ...

History. In 2015, we reported the case of a 28-year old man who underwent SAGB.[15] At the time of the operation, he had morbid obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 50.4kg/m2) with no other comorbid conditions. Intraoperatively, the duodenojejunal flexure was located in the right hypochondrium below the gallbladder instead of conventional anatomical location on the left side, with entire small bowel loops on the right side (Figure 1). Thus, the diagnosis of intestinal malrotation was confirmed, and the jejunal loops were followed from the right sided duodenojejunal flexure for 210cm. Gastrojejunal anastomosis was performed.. The postoperative computed tomography (CT) scan showed vascular axis consistent with malrotation (Figure 2). The patient experienced dissatisfying weight loss (8kg at two-year follow up), which was thought to be the result of the length of bypassed limb (210 cm). After evaluation and discussion, a revision SAGB surgery was planned per patient preference.. Revision procedure. ...

The etiology and biological behavior of PRMCs are still unclear; however, some hypotheses have been proposed to explain the genesis of these tumors as follows: (1) heterotopic ovarian tissue [3, 11, 47], (2) monodermal variant of teratomas [22, 48], (3) intestinal duplication [49], and (4) coelomic metaplasia [4, 8, 12, 50]. In our case, ovarian-like stroma was histopathologically found in the tumor, although no definitive evidence of ovarian tissue was observed, which was also supported by the results of an immunohistochemical examination of the estrogen and progesterone receptors. These findings exclude the hypothesis of heterotopic ovarian tissue. In addition, the hypotheses of teratoma and intestinal duplication can also be excluded because of the lack of structures of teratoma or well-developed intestinal mucosa and smooth muscle. The fourth hypothesis, which is most well-described in the previous literature, is that PMRCs occur from invaginations of the peritoneal epithelium during ...

From question on page 1002 The clue to the diagnosis in this case is the inverted orientation between the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the superior mesenteric vein (SMV). Due to the normal 270° counter clockwise rotation of the midgut during embryological development, the SMA is normally positioned left of the SMV. Here the ultrasound scan demonstrated the SMA to the right of the SMV. In addition, a dilated small bowel was present. These features are characteristic of an intestinal malrotation (non-rotation) of the midgut. Endoscopy followed by upper gastrointestinal contrast series revealed duodenal obstruction. A contrast enhanced computed tomography scan showed complete malrotation with an obstruction in the distal duodenum. This was confirmed at laparatomy and a gastrojejunostomy and resolving of adhesions were performed. A gastrointestinal contrast series four days postoperatively demonstrated correct contrast passage into the jejunum. After oral refeeding, the patients ...
