1/148. Gastroduodenal intussusception secondary to a gastric carcinoma.

    A case of gastroduodenal intussusception secondary to transpyloric prolapse of a primary gastric carcinoma is reported. Both the condition itself and the leading tumor, gastric carcinoma, are extremely exceptional. A diagnosis of this rare entity was established pre-operatively by endoscopy that demonstrated spontaneous reduction of the intussusception. This may be the first documentation of spontaneous reduction of the gastroduodenal intussusception during endoscopy.

2/148. A new simple technique for performing intraoperative endoscopic resection of small-bowel polyps in patients with peutz-jeghers syndrome.

    We describe herein a simple method for performing intraoperative endoscopic resection of small-bowel polyps associated with peutz-jeghers syndrome, using a corrugated anesthetic tube. A 34-year-old man with peutz-jeghers syndrome underwent emergency surgery for an ileo-ileo-colic intussusception. A sterile corrugated anesthetic tube was inserted into the small-bowel, proximal to the affected lesion. The small bowel was then telescoped sequentially over the tube using a pleating technique. Consequently, a colonoscope inserted through the tube was easily able to reach the duodeno-jejunal junction, and ten small-bowel polyps were removed using a wire snare and electrocauterization. All resected specimens were washed out by the instillation of saline through a nasogastric tube, then collected on gauze placed near the outlet of the tube. Our technique has the following merits: it is feasible even in emergency surgery; it prevents contamination of the surgical field; and it facilitates the easy collection of polypectomized specimens.

3/148. Postoperative intussusception in childhood: case report.

    An eight year old female had laparotomy for general peritonitis due to acute appendicitis. Postoperative course was uneventful until the seventh day when abdominal pain, and distension and vomiting ensued which did not respond to conservative management. At repeat laparotomy, an ileoileal intussusception was found and reduced without difficulty. intussusception is an uncommon but important cause of postoperative intestinal obstruction. Since the typical features of intussusception are usually absent and radiology frequently unhelpful, a high index of clinical suspicion is necessary for early diagnosis and treatment to avoid strangulation and perforation.

4/148. intussusception of a mucocele of the appendix secondary to an obstruction by endometriosis: report of a case.

    We treated a patient with a complete invagination of the cecum which contained a mucocele of the appendix secondary to an obstruction by endometriosis. Preoperatively, a barium enema showed a crab's claw-like area without filling in the oral side of the transverse colon. An emergency laparotomy was performed and revealed a mucocele of the appendix to have induced appendicecal invagination; however, no colonic invagination was observed. An appendicecal resection was thus done. Pathologically, the resected specimen was a mucosal hyperplasia with mucin-secreting lesions of the appendix. The theories regarding the pathogenesis of appendicecal mucocele are reviewed and discussed.

5/148. Duodenal duplication cyst manifested by duodeno-jejunal intussusception and hyperbilirubinemia.

    A rare case of duodenal duplication cyst containing stones in a 17-year-old patient is presented. The cyst, acting as a leading point for duodeno-jejunal intussusception caused proximal small bowel obstruction and hyperbilirubinemia. Preoperative diagnosis was based on abdominal computerized tomography. At operation, the cyst wall was unroofed creating free drainage into the duodenal lumen without damaging the biliary and pancreatic ducts with resolution of symptoms.

6/148. intussusception in a child infected with enterovirus: case report.

    Most intussusceptions in childhood are idiopathic. The association of viral infection has been suspected for decades. We report a case of ileocolonic intussusception in a child during a course of enterovirus infection. A 20-month-old girl with vomiting and irritable crying of 4 days' duration was found to have intussusception by sonography. She had suffered from herpangina one week earlier. Due to her peritoneal signs, she underwent surgical manual reduction. A cluster of enlarged lymph nodes in the intussuscipiens was noted preoperatively by high resolution ultrasound. Two swollen lymph nodes were removed for pathologic evaluation and examined for a viral genome by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification. Panenterovirus base pairs were confirmed on the electrophoresis print. During postoperative sonographic follow-up, significant shrinkage of previous mesenteric lymphoid hyperplasia was observed. In this article, we present the first case of childhood intussusception in associated with enterovirus infection, in which the panenterovirus genome was identified in the patient's mesenteric lymph nodes. This was also the first evaluation of the role of mesenteric lymph nodes in intussusception by high resolution sonography.

7/148. A case of jejunal intussusception with gastrointestinal bleeding caused by metastatic testicular germ cell cancer.

    BACKGROUND/AIM: We report an unusual case of metastatic testicular germ cell tumor with its unusual presentation. METHOD: A patient presented to the San Joaquin General Hospital with gastrointestinal bleeding and obstruction and a testicular mass is described. The patient's clinical course is followed and the literature reviewed. RESULTS: The patient presented with jejunal intussusception due to metastatic testicular cancer. He was treated with orchiectomy and bowel resection followed by postoperative chemotherapy. CONCLUSION: This case illustrates the need to consider metastatic small-bowel obstruction and/or intussusception in patients presenting with testicular mass and abdominal pain. copyright copyright 1999 S.

8/148. intussusception after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

    intussusception is a common pediatric surgical problem. Its occurrence in adults is rare and usually involves a specific lead point such as a small bowel tumor or other mass. We describe two adults who developed intussusception after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. signs and symptoms of small bowel obstruction were seen in both of these patients, but the responsible pathology was unusual. Because of the increasing frequency with which these gastric bypass procedures are being performed, a high index of suspicion must be employed when dealing with these postoperative patients who present with abdominal complaints.

9/148. Ultrasonographic detection of intrauterine intussusception resulting in ileal atresia complicated by meconium peritonitis.

    A neonate with ileal atresia (IA) complicated by meconium peritonitis (MP) whose prenatal ultrasonography (US) detected an intrauterine intussusception (IUI) is reported. Fetal ascites, dilated bowel loops, and abdominal calcifications were identified on serial US from 25 weeks of gestation. Intestinal loops with high echogenecity and a "target-like" appearance suggestive of IUI were detected in the right lower quadrant. The 2,680-g male was delivered vaginally at term and underwent a laparotomy. Fibrous adhesions and small calcifications were scattered throughout the peritoneal cavity. IA (interrupted type) was confirmed 17.0 cm cranial to the ileocecal valve (ICV). An ileo-ileal intussusception was also found between 16.5 cm and 9.0 cm cranial to the ICV. Partial resection of the ileum and an ileo-ileal anastomosis was performed. The postoperative course was uneventful. In this case, the pathological process of IUI resulting in IA and MP was demonstrated sonographically by identifying the "target-like" appearance in the fetus.

10/148. intussusception due to vanishing colon cancer with metastasis of the regional lymph nodes: report of a case.

    We present herein a case report of vanishing colon cancer with intussusception. A 70-year-old man with hematochezia was admitted to our hospital. Preoperative images showed ileus due to a colonic tumor. At operation, normograde intussusception without any tumor was recognized at the sigmoid colon. Interestingly, the regional lymph nodes were found to be invaded by tubular adenocarcinoma cells, thus suggesting that the colon cancer existed before the necrosis of the wall took place.
