Excluding other factors that may cause intestinal obstruction is currently the best diagnostic method. For these reasons, delayed diagnosis and treatment frequently occur in patients with an intestinal obstruction due to a congenital adhesion band. CT has been used to exclude other diseases in many cases [11–13], as well as in the present Cited by: 7. Intestinal bands caused by inflammation and post-surgery in children are common cause of intestinal obstruction .Most congenital bands occur in the small intestine, and very rare in the large intestine .ACB is not related to abdominal conditions like laparotomy, peritonitis, or trauma, and are rarely found as causes of intestinal obstruction in children .Author: Billy Jonatan, Nita Mariana, Farid Nurmantu, Muhammad Faruk. DISCUSSION. Congenital bands are a rare cause of intestinal obstruction in infancy and childhood. Their occurrence in adults is an extremely rare condition.[1,2] Obstruction is caused by entrapment of the intestine between the band and mesentery or by compression of the et al. have recently reported in a series of eight patients that bands principally were located between . Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the CT findings that can help to differentiate small-bowel obstruction (SBO) due to adhesive bands from SBO caused by matted adhesions. Materials and methods: CT scans of 67 consecutive patients with adhesive SBO caused by either surgically confirmed adhesive bands or matted adhesions were analyzed.
A rare cause of this situation is the intestinal band caused by remaining fibrous connective tissue leading to entrapment and consequent intestinal obstruction. In this report, the intestinal obstruction occurred due to an adhesion and an entrapment in bone tissue, making this work the first report. INTRODUCTION. Neonatal intestinal obstruction is the most common surgical emergency in newborn. Although, several centers have been doing neonatal surgery, very few have reported their experience and outcome from our country.[1,2] The majority of neonatal intestinal obstruction present soon after birth in the first few differential diagnosis of babies presenting in the 3 rd or 4 th. Congenital bands cause 3% of all intestinal obstruction and almost always lead to small bowel obstruction.1 In adults, obstruction due to bands is even rarer. These bands are associated with intestinal malrotation, usually causing duodenal compression and are fibrous in nature.2 ACBs (Anomalous congenital band), as in our case, are not. Abdominal Adhesions are fibrous bands which tend to form between organs and abdominal tissues. These bands can be extremely mild not causing any adverse effects and of little to no clinical significance and there can also be extremely strong bands which tend to cause obstruction. Adhesions can also cause the organs to get glued to each other.

LATE SENIOR HOUSE SURGEON, BECKETT HOSPITAL, BARNSLEY THE adhesions and bands met with in the ileocsecal region can be classified according to the pathological (or physiological) conditions which . Mesenteric ischemia due to appenditis causing intestinal obstruction is the rarest one. Among the mechanical causes, the vast majority are due to the formation of appendicular abscess that compresses the loops of small bowel, and postoperative adhesions that occur years after treatment. A case of small bowel obstruction due to peritoneal congenital band is presented. • Computed tomography is effective for diagnosis. • The laparoscopic approach for surgical treatment should be intended initially for its feasibility and benefits. • A quick management is necessary to avoid intestinal necrosis. Objective: Intestinal obstruction is a blockage of the intestinal content through bowel. The block must be complete and permanent. Obstruction may be mechanical, simple or strangulated, and paralytic. The purpose of this chapter is to clarify, also evaluating our surgical experience, the steps to diagnose and the ways to treat intestinal obstructions.
