Small intestinal intramural hematoma secondary to a migrating wire foreign body in a dog

A 12‐year‐old spayed female Labrador retriever was presented for a 5‐day history of vomiting and inappetence. Radiographic findings included poor peritoneal serosal contrast, segmental small intestinal dilation, and multiple linear, metal opaque, intestinal and peritoneal wire foreign bodies. Sonographic findings included septated, hypoechoic, mural expansion of the distal duodenum and jejunum; and an intramural, thin, linear hyperechogenicity with distal acoustic shadowing consistent with a foreign body. Exploratory laparotomy was performed with resection of the affected distal duodenum and proximal jejunum. Histopathology of the excised segment confirmed an intramural hematoma. This case represents an uncommon complication of migrating wire foreign bodies.

Rationale: Ingestion of foreign bodies often occurs in clinical environments, especially in toddlers and aged patients. Although plain radiography and CT are widely used for the assessment of foreign bodies, sonography has an advantage in the diagnosis of some radiolucent foreign bodies, such as wood and bamboo materials. Patient concerns: An 80-year-old woman presented with a 4-day history of right upper quadrant abdominal persistent distended pain without radiation. Diagnoses: Radiographs, a preliminary abdominal ultrasound (US) and an abdominal computed tomography (CT) were unremarkable. A repeat abdominal US fo...

AbstractObjectiveTo describe the nonsurgical management of a cat with traumatic pneumoperitoneum.Case Series SummaryA 4 ‐year‐old cat was presented following vehicular polytrauma. Thoracic radiographs revealed 4 rib fractures, a scapular fracture, and pneumothorax. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a small volume of free abdominal fluid. Computed tomography showed a mild pneumoretroperitoneum and a pneumoperitoneum i n the region of the porta hepatis. The cat was managed conservatively with close monitoring. Exploratory laparotomy was not pursued given patient stability and static serial imaging studies revealing no indica...

Abstract A one‐year‐old intact male German shepherd dog was referred with a 3‐month history of dysuria and pollakiuria. Physical examination revealed a large firm mass in the caudal abdomen. Findings from survey radiography, negative contrast cystography, computed tomographic (CT) retrograde positive contrast cystography, and CT excretory urography were consistent with a large urinary bladder diverticulum. An exploratory laparotomy revealed a normal wall appearance in the ventral compartment (true bladder) and marked thinning of the wall in the dorsal compartment (diverticulum). Both ureters inserted into the ventral...

ConclusionIntestinal atresia is a rare condition in foals, but should be considered as a differential diagnosis in foals that fail to pass meconium. Early recognition and surgical intervention can offer an improved chance of short‐term survival in cases where there is adequate intestine to anastomose. An end‐to‐side anastomosis technique can be used where an end‐to‐end technique is not practical because of the difference in diameter of the proximal and distal intestinal segments.

Abstract A 10‐month‐old German Shepherd Dog presented for evaluation of intermittent vomiting. Abdominal radiographs revealed a marked right cranial mass effect. Initial differentials included abscess/cyst or less likely neoplasia from undetermined origin. On abdominal ultrasound the mass appeared cystic and thin walled. Computed tomography revealed a large cystic lesion originating from the pyloroduodenal junction causing pyloric outflow obstruction. A noncommunicating duodenal duplication cyst was found on exploratory laparotomy and further confirmed with histopathology and immunohistochemistry. Enteric duplication c...

A previously healthy 8-month-old female presented with 1 day of bilious emesis and bloody stool. An abdominal radiograph was consistent with a small bowel obstruction (Figure  1; available at www.jpeds.com), and abdominal ultrasound scan revealed a target sign, consistent with an ileocolic intussusception (Figure 2). Attempted air enema reduction was unsuccessful, so the patient underwent an uncomplicated exploratory laparotomy with reduction of the ileocolic intussu sception as well as an appendectomy.

Abstract A 34-year-old para V woman was referred to our centre at 35+1 weeks of gestation for an assumed fetal malformation with prenatal renal impairment and anhydramnios. Prenatal ultrasound demonstrated unilateral renal agenesis; the bladder was not detectable. The baby was born by caesarian section at 36+2 weeks of gestation because of placental insufficiency. Postnatal adaptation was uneventful, but the newborn presented external stigmas of trisomy 21 and progressive renal impairment with anuria. Nevertheless, the postnatal ultrasound showed two enlarged kidneys in loco typico with impaired perfusion but with...

A previously well 3-year-old girl presented with a 3-month history of progressive, non-bilious vomiting with weight loss. On examination, the abdomen was distended but non-tender; she was euvolemic. Blood tests including amylase and tissue transglutaminase IgA were normal. Abdominal radiograph and ultrasound scan (USS) were non-specific, with a distended stomach seen. A water-soluble contrast study identified delayed gastric emptying. At oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD), a rosette-like mass was seen in the pylorus (figure 1). A nasogastric (NG) tube was placed to supplement nutrition. Biopsies showed chronic inflammation ...
