  • He was given a scan and the diagnosis was quick - volvulus, or twisted intestine. (laterlife.com)
  • This would contribute towards establishing a morphological basis for diagnosis of congenital as well as degenerative motor deficits of the stomach and possibly tumours of ICC. (scielo.org.za)
  • We searched in-patient and out-patient electronic medical records at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, from January 1, 2000, to May 5, 2016, to identify patients with diagnosis of ''vascular insufficiency'' and ''other disorders of stomach'' using ICD-9 codes 557.1 and 537.8, respectively.

  • A diagnosis of gastric dilatation-volvulus is made by several factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Midgut
  • The tract may also be divided into foregut, midgut, and hindgut, reflecting the embryological origin of each segment. (wikipedia.org)
  • This delineates the embryonic borders between the foregut and midgut, and is also the division commonly used by clinicians to describe gastrointestinal bleeding as being of either "upper" or "lower" origin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Duodenum
  • Antenatal ultrasonography (US) may indicate structural and associated abnormalities, such as a dilated stomach and proximal duodenum. (medscape.com)
  • The exact demarcation between the upper and lower tracts is the suspensory muscle of the duodenum. (wikipedia.org)
  • The four segments of the duodenum are as follows (starting at the stomach, and moving toward the jejunum): bulb, descending, horizontal, and ascending. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has three major divisions: Duodenum: A short structure (about 20-25 cm long) which receives chyme from the stomach, together with pancreatic juice containing digestive enzymes and bile from the gall bladder. (wikipedia.org)
  • In cases of malrotation complicated with volvulus, it demonstrates a corkscrew appearance of the distal duodenum and jejunum. (wikipedia.org)
  • gastrostomy
  • Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is an endoscopic medical procedure in which a tube (PEG tube) is passed into a patient's stomach through the abdominal wall, most commonly to provide a means of feeding when oral intake is not adequate (for example, because of dysphagia or sedation). (wikipedia.org)
  • A gastrostomy can also be used to treat volvulus of the stomach, where the stomach twists along one of its axes. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the Russell introducer technique, the Seldinger technique is used to place a wire into the stomach, and a series of dilators are used to increase the size of the gastrostomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • A gastrostomy is a feeding tube that is inserted directly into the stomach either surgically under direct vision (open or laproscopic), endoscopically (with a camera), or radiologically (x-ray guidance). (gosh.nhs.uk)
  • A gastrostomy tube allows the delivery of supplemental nutrition and medications directly into the stomach. (gosh.nhs.uk)
  • In order for gastrostomy feeding to be successful the child or young person must have a functioning gastrointestinal tract. (gosh.nhs.uk)
  • commonly
  • From reproductive, endocrine, and eye disease to urinary tract and infectious diseases, the book offers in-depth information on a wide range of commonly presented diseases, providing technicians with practical information linked to their daily tasks. (wiley.com)
  • Abdominal plain x-rays are commonly confirmatory for a volvulus, especially if a "bent inner tube" sign or a "coffee bean" sign are seen. (wikipedia.org)
  • GDV is commonly associated with a dog's consumption of large meals, which can cause the stomach to expand due to food and gas, ultimately twisting (volvulus) and not allowing either to be expelled from the body. (vetspecialists.com)
  • Ulceration of the mucosal surface occurs very commonly in the stomach (gastric ulceration), due to damage from stomach acid or alteration in protective mechanisms of the stomach, and is usually not life-threatening. (wikipedia.org)
  • dogs
  • The German Shepherd, like all dogs, can suffer from problems affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. (petplan.co.uk)
  • Nearly all breeds of dogs have been reported to have had canine bloat with or without the stomach rotation, but some of the more common breeds with GVD are Great Danes, Weimaraners, St. Bernards, Irish setters and Gordon setters. (vetspecialists.com)
  • Diaphragm
  • As the stomach begins to expand, pressure begins to increase, which can lead to several severe consequences, including prevention of adequate blood return to the heart from the abdomen, loss of blood flow to the lining of the stomach, rupture of the stomach wall, and pressure on the diaphragm that prevents the lungs from adequately expanding, which makes it difficult to maintain normal breathing.

  • Canine coronavirus is a gastrointestinal disease that is usually asymptomatic or with mild clinical signs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Canine minute virus is an infectious disease that can cause respiratory and gastrointestinal signs in young puppies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some diseases which involve other parts of the GI tract can manifest in the mouth, alone or in combination, including: Gastroesophageal reflux disease can cause acid erosion of the teeth and halitosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some of the more widely acknowledged factors for developing GDV include increased age, breed, having a deep and narrow chest, eating foods such as kibble that expand in the stomach, overfeeding, too much water consumption in a small period of time before or after exercise and other causes of gastrointestinal disease and distress. (wikipedia.org)
  • bloat
  • The word bloat is often used as a general term to mean gas distension without stomach torsion (a normal change after eating), or to refer to GDV. (wikipedia.org)
  • One study looking at the ingredients of dry dog food found that while neither grains, soy, nor animal proteins increased risk of bloat, foods containing an increased amount of added oils or fats do increase the risk, possibly due to delayed emptying of the stomach. (wikipedia.org)
  • respiratory
  • Veterinary surgery is surgery performed on animals by veterinarians, whereby the procedures fall into three broad categories: orthopaedics (bones, joints, muscles), soft tissue surgery (skin, body cavities, cardiovascular system, GI/urogenital/respiratory tracts), and neurosurgery.
