Duodenal atresia is the congenital absence or complete closure of a portion of the lumen of the duodenum.It causes increased levels of amniotic fluid during pregnancy (polyhydramnios) and intestinal obstruction in newborn babies.Radiography shows a distended stomach and distended duodenum, which are separated by the pyloric valve, a finding described as the double-bubble sign.
A prognostic classification for jejunoileal atresia that takes into consideration the peculiar conditions in the tropics is proposed based on experience with 45 babies who had surgical treatment for this condition in Nigeria. The babies were assigned to three risk groups.
Atresia of the small bowel results in bowel obstruction in the newborn infant. It often occurs due to an ischemic event in utero and may be found in premature infants. Grosfeld et al used a modified classification to describe the different variations.
The aim of the study was to evaluate patient demographics, classification and location of the atresia, operative management, postoperative care, and outcome in 114 infants with jejunoileal atresia.
Hereby, we present a case in which the diagnosis of prenatal intestinal atresia was made with MR imaging. 2. Case report. A 26-year-old woman was referred to our US department because of enlarged hypoechogenic loops in the foetal abdomen with the suspicion of anal atresia.
Jejunoileal Stenosis and Atresia. Classification: Type I: The mucosa and submucosa form a web or intraluminal diaphragm, resulting in windsock obstruction. A mesenteric defect is not present, and the bowel length is not affected. Type II: The mesentery is intact; however, the bowel is not joined. The proximal dilated and blind end is connected to distal collapsed end with a fibrous .The.
Jejunoileal atresia is of familial and non-familial in origins and classified into four different types. We herein report a rare occurrence of type I jejunal atresia in identical twins who were.
These databases are text-based rather than International Classification of Disease-9 based, and patients were located by searching for the following diagnoses: duodenal atresia, ileal atresia, jejunal atresia, jejunoileal atresia, colonic atresia, anal atresia, small intestine atresia, large intestine atresia, intestinal atresia, or webs in any of the above-listed locations.
