  • Acute Peritonitis

    pancreatitis, acute cholecystitis and acute uncomplicated diverticulitis.[] Leukocytosis, hypokalemia, hypernatremia, and acidosis may be present, but they are not specific findings.[] Bacterial invasion usually results from appendicitis, diverticulitis, peptic ulcer, ulcerative colitis, volvulus, abdominal neoplasms, or a stab wound.[]

  • Ileus

    ; D, acute pancreatitis; E , appendicitis; F, adnexitis; G , perforation of a sigmoid diverticulum; H, renal colic.[] The patients had dilated bowels and hypokalemia; correction of the hypokalemia decreased the dilation.[] Volvulus See also the separate article on Volvulus and Midgut Malrotations . Sigmoid volvulus can be treated conservatively in many cases.[]

  • Colonic Pseudo-Obstruction

    ACPO can sometimes predispose or mimic colonic volvulus, especially in geriatric patients.[] The purpose of this case presentation is to illustrate the rate association between acute pancreatitis and colonic pseudo-obstruction and to highlight the difficulties of[] While PD K losses often contribute to hypokalemia, the PD K loss was estimated to be only 39 mEq/day.[]

  • Paralytic Ileus

    In Internal Medicine, paralytic ileus is most commonly caused by peritonitis, which is most often caused by acute pancreatitis.[] We describe a 60 year man with 2 year history of recurrent paralytic ileus attributed to recurrent hypokalemia.[] Volvulus c. Inguinal hernias d. Internal hernias 28.[]

  • Pyloric Obstruction

    The association of several pathologic processes like acute pancreatitis and abscess formation in the heterotopic mass and the long-term follow-up are the main points of interest[] Renal compensation for this loss of H ions is by preserving protons at the expense of potassium and thus hypokalemia ensues with now, hypochloremic, hypokalemic metabolic[] Crohn disease , sarcoidosis , tuberculosis gallstones ( Bouveret syndrome ): rare strictures, e.g. from caustic substance ingestion gastric antral web gastric volvulus 5 Rapunzel[]

  • Intestinal Obstruction

    pancreatitis This appearance is not diagnostic of intra-abdominal inflammation, but rather an occasional associated feature « Previous Top Next » Last reviewed : February[] Usually, the therapeutic approach is conservative based on the control and improvement of fluid and electrolytes disorders, particularly hypokalemia.[] Unlike many cases, the patient did not present with typical signs of volvulus.[]

  • Partial Pyloric Obstruction

    […] reduce a sigmoid volvulus.[] Chronic pancreatitis, groove pancreatitis, annular pancreas and to a lesser extent severe acute pancreatitis can cause GOO.[] All metabolic derangements--including hypokalemia and alkalosis, along with dehydration--must be corrected before surgical repair is undertaken.[]
