nematodes and that antibodies are against Onchocerca spp.
Acute gastric volvulus
is an uncommon but easily recognised surgical emergency with highly specific clinical symptoms.
Although initially reported as caecal volvulus
, in hindsight there were features indicative of the herniation.
Human onchocerciasis (river blindness) is a disease caused by a filarial nematode Onchocerca volvulus
was found in 10 of the 11 avocado trees that were sampled, and it was the most abundant beetle in 3 trees (sites 6, 8 and 10) in Homestead, all of which were negative for R.
Respiratory distress, cardiac arrhythmia and serious complications, such as acute intestinal obstruction and volvulus
of the colon, can be seen.
The diverticulum may contain pancreatic tissue and may obstruct or strangulate in a type of volvulus
This case presents conflicting requirements for anaesthesia: the need for a rapid sequence induction (RSI) in a child with acute intestinal obstruction who also requires a haemodynamically stable induction because of the significant risk of rebleeding from her cerebral AVM (33% in the first year (1)), with a potential for increases in blood pressure in association with perioperative events potentially adding to that risk; the likely requirement for vasopressor therapy to prevent any drop in baseline blood pressure and subsequent neurological injury during anaesthesia while continuing to provide optimal gut perfusion in view of her volvulus
and gut ischaemia; and finally, whether epidural or PCA is the technique of choice for postoperative pain management.
Treitz bagindan itibaren bagirsaklarin bir tur kendi ekseni etrafinda donmesiyle olusan "mid-gut" volvulus
mevcuttu ve elle duzeltildi.
Acute gastric dilation is described in the literature as a result of eating disorders, trauma resuscitation, volvulus
of hiatal hernias, medications, electrolyte abnormalities, psychogenic polyphagia, superior mesenteric artery syndrome, and a myriad of other conditions (1-5).
Additionally, Moore was diagnosed with mid-gut volvulus
, and a resection of her small bowel, or small intestine, was performed in which she lost ninety percent of her small intestine.
At surgery, it was discovered that he had a volvulus
of the entire small bowel around a fibrous band extending from the transverse colon to the pelvis.
