Once acquired, the disease starts either as transverse ulcers in the small intestine most commonly ileum or as hyper- trophic lesion that developed as mass at Ileocecal
Numerous conditions have been associated with SIBO, including blind loop, surgical adhesions, scleroderma, chronic renal failure, resection of the ileocecal
valve, chronic pancreatitis, and intestinal dysmotility.
valve may be identified, and occasionally the point of torsion may be outlined by intraluminal gas as an area of cone-like narrowing, or the so-called "beak" sign.
enteric duplication cyst: radiologic-pathologic correlation.
At that time, she was 42 years old and presented with abdominal pain; a colonoscopy revealed a tumor of the cecum adjacent to the ileocecal
The large bowel measured 35 cm from the ileocecal
A 66-year-old white man with a prior history of coronary artery disease underwent a screening colonoscopy and was found to have an ileocecal
carcinoid tumor that was proven by biopsy.
area is the most commonly involved site due to the abundance of lymphoid tissue (Peyer's patches) followed by the colon and jejunum.
Intussusception is a bowel obstruction that results when 1 bowel loop telescopes into another, usually beginning at the ileocecal
Surgical specimens included a section of terminal ileum measuring 10 x 4 x 4 cm that telescoped into the ileocecal
region (Figure 1).
Intra-operative findings-haemoperitoneum of approximately 350ml of blood, uterine perforation approximately 5cms on the anterior wall of body of uterus, circumferential tear of ileum with unhealthy margins, 3ft from ileocecal
junction, multiple contusions of approximately 5-10cms proximal and distal to perforation site, were found.
11,12) As a result of its effect on the ileocecal
valve, it can cause unwanted reflux of air in the small bowel and may secondarily reduce colonic distention.
resection was done, and the resected colon was subjected to histologic and microbiologic examinations.
An excellent classification for boundaries of hernias was formulated by Meyer, 4 5 who described six boundaries: paracecal sulci, cecal fossa, cecal recess, superior ileocecal
recess, inferior ileocecal
recess, and retrocecal recess.
Meckel's diverticulum is a remnant of the vitelline duct that is usually located 45 to 60 cm proximal to the ileocecal
valve on the antimesenteric border of the ileum.
