1/194. Bowel obstruction caused by dislocation of a suprapubic catheter.

    In patients with a suprapubic catheter, the differential diagnosis of acute lower abdominal pain must include a possible dislocation of this device. We report a case that illustrates such a complication, leading to bowel obstruction in our patient.

2/194. A case of aberrant pancreatic cancer in the jejunum.

    We report a case of aberrant pancreatic cancer of the jejunum in a 63 year-old man. The patient was admitted to our hospital with epigastric discomfort and vomiting due to obstruction of the jejunum. laparotomy revealed a submucosal tumor on the jejunum with multiple liver metastases. Histological examination showed the tumor to be a well differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma originating from aberrant pancreatic tissues lacking islets. Only 1 case of aberrant pancreatic cancer in the jejunum has been previously reported in the literature.

3/194. Descending mesocolon defect herniation: case report.

    Internal hernia, herniation of the internal organs through defects in the intraabdominal cavity, is rare. Due to the rarity of this pathology and lack of the specific symptoms and signs, early diagnosis and treatment are always stressful to the clinician and misdiagnoses may occur in the emergency room. The prognosis of a patient with uncomplicated internal hernia is excellent. We report a 21-year-old Chinese man with internal herniation through a defect of mesocolon, presented as an impalpable abdominal mass which was shown only on imaging studies. In addition to the typical whirlpool pattern, a huge solid mass between the pancreatic tail and stomach was found under computed tomography (CT) scan. The major symptoms were intermittent epigastralgia and abdominal fullness that had bothered him for years. physical examination results showed only mild epigastric tenderness. Computed tomography scans and exploratory laparotomy of the abdomen played vital roles during diagnosis. The herniated organ was a portion of jejunum with partial small intestinal obstruction.

4/194. Perforated jejunal diverticulitis as a rare cause of acute abdomen.

    Jejunal diverticula is rare and in most cases without any symptoms. They become clinically relevant when complications, such as diverticulitis, malabsorption caused by bacterial overgrowth, intestinal hemorrhage, or obstruction, occur. In this case report a case of perforated jejunal diverticulitis is presented and the problems in finding the correct diagnosis are discussed.

5/194. Retained surgical sponge: an unusual cause of malabsorption.

    Retained surgical sponge is an unpleasant surprise in clinical practice. Intraluminal migration of the retained sponge, though rare, can lead to intestinal obstruction and other complications. We describe two cases of retained surgical sponge, both following gynaecological surgery, presenting several years after surgery with features of subacute intestinal obstruction, malabsorption and several years after surgery with features of subacute intestinal obstruction, malabsorption and sever hypoproteinemia which reverted after surgical removal.

6/194. 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.

7/194. Small bowel obstruction secondary to herniation through a 5-mm laparoscopic trocar site following laparoscopic lymphadenectomy.

    Incisional hernias occur in <1% of women undergoing operative laparoscopy and are mostly limited to trocar sites > or =10 mm. This is a report of a 54-year-old woman with endometrial cancer who presented with nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain 1 week following laparoscopically-assisted vaginal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and lymphadenectomy. Abdominal radiographs and computed tomography demonstrated small bowel obstruction and herniation through a 5-mm trocar site. Reduction of the hernia and closure of the fascial incision were performed at exploratory laparotomy with normal recovery. Bowel herniation can occur through 5-mm trocar sites following prolonged operative laparoscopy. The peritoneum and fascia of these incisions should be closed.

8/194. Clinical and pathologic overlap in nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-related small bowel diaphragm disease and the neuromuscular and vascular hamartoma of the small bowel.

    diaphragm disease (DD) is a radiographically subtle cause of small bowel obstruction and is part of the spectrum of diseases associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug injury. The neuromuscular and vascular hamartoma (NMVH) is a nonepithelial hamartomatous, submucosally based proliferation of mature submucosal elements capable of causing small bowel obstruction. The authors report two patients in whom the clinical setting and gross pathology are that of DD, but the histologic characterization is identical to that described for NMVH. It is probable that in some patients the two diseases overlap so that some patients readily fit the criteria for both entities.

9/194. 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.

10/194. Jejunal perforation caused by abdominal angiostrongyliasis.

    The authors describe a case of abdominal angiostrongyliasis in an adult patient presenting acute abdominal pain caused by jejunal perforation. The case was unusual, as this affliction habitually involves the terminal ileum, appendix, cecum or ascending colon. The disease is caused by the nematode angiostrongylus costaricensis, whose definitive hosts are forest rodents while snails and slugs are its intermediate hosts. infection in humans is accidental and occurs via the ingestion of snail or slug mucoid secretions found on vegetables, or by direct contact with the mucus. Abdominal angiostrongyliasis is clinically characterized by prolonged fever, anorexia, abdominal pain in the right-lower quadrant, and peripheral blood eosinophilia. Although usually of a benign nature, its course may evolve to more complicated forms such as intestinal obstruction or perforation likely to require a surgical approach. Currently, no efficient medication for the treatment of abdominal angiostrongyliasis is known to be available. In this study, the authors provide a review on the subject, considering its etiopathogeny, clinical picture, diagnosis and treatment.
