Band adhesions not related to previous abdominal surgery – a retrospective cohort analysis of risk factors

Publication date: Available online 13 November 2018Source: Annals of Medicine and SurgeryAuthor(s): Andreas Skoglar, Ulf Gunnarsson Prof, Peter FalkAbstractBackgroundPostoperative intra-abdominal adhesion formation is a common cause of small bowel obstruction (SBO). Adhesions causing SBO are classed as either matted adhesions or solitary band adhesions. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of previous abdominal surgery in a cohort of patients operated for bowel obstruction and to analyze the causes of obstruction discovered at surgery.Materials and MethodsThe study was performed at a county hospital with a catchment population of 120 000 inhabitants. Records of operations performed for bowel obstruction over a period of 70 months were retrieved.ResultsOf the 196 surgical procedures for intestinal obstruction included, 108 (55%) were caused by adhesions. In this group, 42 (39%) were due to solitary band adhesions and 66 (61%) were due to matted adhesions. Ten of 18 male patients (56%) with a solitary obstructing band had not undergone previous abdominal surgery (p

In cattle, clinical presentations and outcomes of bovine theileriosis are closely correlated with the causative Theileria spp. Thus, accurate detection and discrimination of Theileria spp. are essential for epidemiological studies and for provision of ...

JSRV infection is usually detected post-mortem by macroscopic and histological examination of lungs for lesions of OPA. Subsequently, the presence of JSRV may be confirmed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on tumour tissue. Our goal was to d...

But, lacking of knowledge is the evaluation on metabolic organs. To test the effect of methionine deficiency on the kidney, we assessed the apoptosis and the cell cycle of kidney induced by methionine deficiency by the methods of TdT-mediated dUTP Nick-End Labeling (TUNEL), flow cytometry (FCM), quanti...

Baldone, L. Urquiza, P.J. Delicia, M.C. FortAbstractBovines are the primary reservoir of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) O157:H7 and the main source of its transmission to humans. Here, we present a one-year longitudinal study of fecal shedding of E. coli O157. E. coli O157 obtained from recto-anal mucosal samples were characterized by multiplex PCR. The E. coli O157 prevalence ranged from 0.84% in July ...
