AP Upright contributed by Dr Francis Fortin on Janu The findings of ischemia in closed loop obstruction are the same as in patients with other causes of mesenteric ischemia: bowel wall thickening; mesenteric edema; ascites; enhancement of the bowel in ischemia can be normal, increased due to reperfusion or there can be lack of enhancement, like in this case.

    Abdominal swelling may be the result of increased intestinal gas. The normal small intestine contains approximately mL of gas made up of nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and methane. Nitrogen and oxygen are consumed (swallowed), whereas carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and methane are produced intraluminally by bacterial fermentation. Urinary ascites is a rare condition, though a common cause of ascites in newborns, accounting for up to one-third of cases of isolated ascites. 2, 6 Males outnumber females by a ratio of 74 Obstruction of the lower urinary tract, particularly from posterior urethral valves, accounts for approximately 70% of cases of urinary ascites.

    Urinary Ascites and Transient Intestinal Obstruction in a Preterm Infant: An Interesting Case of Posterior Urethral Valve. AJP Rep. Jul;9(3):ee . Ascites in Greek language means “bag”, “bladder” or “sack”. 1 Ascites is defined as collection of fluid in the peritoneum. 1,2 Ascitic fluid could be transudative or exudative. This is based upon the total protein concentration in the ascitic fluid; ratio of total protein in ascitic fluid and serum, or ratio of lactic dehydrogenase in ascitic fluid and serum. 3.

Although abdominal symptoms, such as anorexia, constipation, and fecal impaction, are frequent in myxedema, overt abnormal abdominal findings are unusual.

1 One such manifestation is ascites. Because myxedema is an insidious disease which may not be recognized, it is possible for ascites to occur, to be ascribed mistakenly to other etiologies, and for unnecessary surgical Cited by: The Royal College of Surgeons of England.

A series of differential diagnoses should be by: 3. It has not been linked with small bowel obstruction. Narrow albumin gradient (exudative) ascites, usually due to peritoneal carcinoma or inflammation, has been noted in cases of necrotic or perforated bowel, but simple small bowel obstruction has not previously been appreciated as a possible cause for by: 4.

It is not usually seen in cases of acute obstruction. A patient who had previously undergone a laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction for early gastric cancer presented with acute abdominal pain and epigastric fullness.

Compared with the previous study (not included), there is diffuse intraperitoneal increased density indicating ascites in this patient with known peritoneal carcinomatosis secondary to ovarian cancer.

There are also air-fluid levels and a dilated small bowel up to 40 mm, strongly suggestive of small bowel obstruction.

Finally, there are bilateral pleural effusions with a chest tube on the right.

Approximately 60 to 70% of cases of fetal ascites are due to urinary tract obstruction. Hepatobiliary and intestinal causes account for 15 to 30% of cases.

What is Intestinal obstruction. eHealthMe is studying f Intestinal obstruction patients now. What is Ascites. Ascites (accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity) has been reported by people with hepatitis c, high blood pressure, hepatic neoplasm malignant, rheumatoid arthritis, primary pulmonary hypertension.

eHealthMe is studying f Ascites patients now. Keywords: Chylous ascites, Intestinal obstruction, Ischemia Background A large amount of ascites can accompany bowel obstruc-tion with nonviable bowel loops [1].

Ascites is occasion-ally bloody [2] and can be seen in obstruction cases requiring intestinal resection. Chylous ascites, however, has not been commonly observed with bowel obstruc-tion.

Gerhild Becker, in Supportive Oncology, Prevalence and pathophysiology. Malignant ascites accounts for ≈10% of all cases of ascites and occurs in association with a variety of neoplasms.

Malignant effusion is the escape of fluid from the blood or vessels into tissues or cavities; it is a common problem in patients with cancer. Intestinal obstruction Intestinal obstruction is a common presentation, most often due to foreign bodies within the small intestine but may also be caused by intussusception (usually less than one year of age) and, less commonly, mesenteric torsion or neoplasia.

Any condition that causes obstruction to hepatic venous flow may lead to ascites as a result of increasing portal venous pressure like in the case of Budd-Chiari Syndrome.

The site of this obstruction can be anywhere from hepatic venules, large hepatic veins, inferior vena cava or. 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. The formation of urinary ascites in PUV serves as a pop-off mechanism to relieve the intravesical and intrarenal pressures.

When this happens by mechanisms other than bladder rupture, it can lead on to transient intestinal obstruction and hepatic synthetic defects. # # Conflict of Interest.

None. References; 1 Thakkar D, Deshpande AV, Kennedy SE. Closed Loop Obstruction. Closed loop obstruction is a specific type of obstruction in which two points along the course of a bowel are obstructed at a single location thus forming a closed loop.

Usually this is due to adhesions, a twist of the mesentery or internal herniation. In the large bowel it. However, less than two thirds of confirmed cases of malignant ascites are a direct result of peritoneal carcinomatosis; the remaining cases are secondary to other etiologies, all of which are less frequently associated with positive ascites cytology.
