The small intestine was closed over double-fold after removal of sponge.

Pharmacological management of postoperative ileus

Upper Hematemesis Melena Lower Hematochezia. Case 16 Case In CT, spongiform structure containing the cystic lesions, air bubbles, hyperdense capsule, and spotted calcifications can be seen characteristically inside GP. Gossypiboma GP is a term used to express the mass resulting from forgotten cotton sponge in operations. Minimizing sympathetic inhibition of gastrointestinal motility has achieved greatest success through prevention of sympathetic activation with adequate pain management, minimal surgical trauma and appropriate selection of intraoperative anesthesia.

The rest of our review will focus on the pharmacologic management of POI, which can be used as part of a full multimodal strategy for its prevention and treatment. Several strategies may be used to reduce the clinical consequences of ileus, including minimizing intestinal trauma during surgery, using midthoracic epidural anesthesia and minimizing the need for opioids in pain management — strategies that have all been shown to reduce the risk of prolonged POI.

Transmural migration of retained surgical sponges a systematic review.

Pharmacological management of postoperative ileus

On listening to the abdomen with a stethoscope, no bowel sounds are heard because the bowel is inactive. New England Journal of Medicine. Conflict of Interests The authors declare that there is no conflict of interests. The fifty-one-year-old female patient admitted to the emergency department with the complaints of mechanical intestinal obstruction and had a history of open cholecystectomy 20 years ago.

Several new studies have called into question the efficacy of routine nasogastric tube placement for prevention of suspected POI, and they suggest that this common practice may actually prolong the duration of POI.


Gray baby syndrome muscle tone Congenital hypertonia Congenital hypotonia. In this study, we reported a case of mechanical intestinal obstruction causing GP.

Delaney is a paid consultant with Adolor Briv and Wyeth, and has received honoraria from both companies, and travel assistance and speaker fees from Adolor. Abstract The duration of postoperative ileus following abdominal surgery is quite variable, and prolonged postoperative ileus is an iatrogenic phenomenon with important influence on patient ieus, hospital costs and length of stay in hospital.

Pharmacologic mechanisms Pharmacologic mechanisms have also been shown to play an important role in prolonged POI through endogenous and exogenous opioids to decrease gastrointestinal motor activity.

Adequate treatment for prolonged postoperative ileus is important to improve patient morbidity and clinical efficiency.

Ileus – Wikipedia

Risk factors for retained instruments and sponges after surgery. The female patient, fifty-one-year-old, admitted to the emergency department with the complaints of mechanical intestinal obstruction, ilrus as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, abdominal swelling, and obstipation. Retrieved 4 July This is a case of a year-old man presenting with caecum perforation and obstruction in the splenic flexure.

If caused by medication, the offending agent is discontinued or reduced. There were the findings of intestinal obstruction in abdominal plain radiography and computerized tomography.

Decreasing inflammation may be indicated in patients who are about to undergo major intestinal surgery, as this is thought to be an important contributing factor to POI. Postoperative ileus POI is the term given to iileus cessation of intestinal function following surgery. Perinatal asphyxia Periventricular leukomalacia.

Proctitis Radiation proctitis Proctalgia fugax Rectal prolapse Anismus. While right colon perforations almost always arise from a distally located obstruction, there may be co-existing pathologies. Foreign body may be removed by endoscopic and laparoscopic ways or with laparotomy, when GP was diagnosed. Two weeks after discharge, pulmonary thromboembolism was diagnosed and was successfully treated.

These findings demonstrated that abdominal-remained-sponge after cholecystectomy migrated with transmural course without creating any defect to duodenum and caused mechanical intestinal obstruction in ileum because of its diameter. Causes can be divided into congenital and acquired. Alvimopan, for postoperative ileus following bowel resection: On physical examination, common abdominal distention and right subcostal incision were seen together. In systems that try to minimize hospital stay after abdominal surgery, one of the principal limiting factors is the recovery of adequate bowel function, which can delay discharge or lead to readmission.


Alvimopan, a peripherally acting mu-opioid receptor antagonist, compared with placebo in postoperative ileus after major abdominal surgery: Radiographic findings can be evident hours before the onset of clinical symptoms 9. Respiratory Intrauterine hypoxia Infant respiratory distress syndrome Transient tachypnea of the newborn Meconium aspiration syndrome pleural disease Pneumothorax Pneumomediastinum Wilson—Mikity syndrome Bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

About Blog Go ad-free. In this review, we define POI, describe the pathogenesis and briefly discuss clinical management before detailing current pharmacologic management options. This situation, depending on human fault, can be minimized by staff training, even though it is not prevented entirely.

Some literature sources recommend Gastrografin diatrizoate meglumine to shorten the postoperative course of those with non-operative small bowel obstruction 5.

Although the duration of POI is variable, we now have a better understanding of the impact of perioperative opioid analgesia, the benefits of thoracic epidural analgesia with local anesthesia and the benefits of avoiding nasogastric tube placement.

Treatment of acute postoperative ileus with octreotide.

SBO on Gastrografin follow-through Case Postoperatively, the patient was discharged without having any problems at 4th day of hospitalization. Korean Journal of Radiology.
