146 Possible Causes for Acute Peritonitis, Strangulated Hernia

  • Volvulus

    The most common causes of gastric volvulus in adults are diaphragmatic defects such as paraesophageal hernias.[websurg.com] Acute sigmoid volvulus is a surgical emergency. [ 6 ] Any delay in treatment increases the risk of bowel ischaemia, perforation and faecal peritonitis.[patient.info] It is usually associated with hernia, volvulus, and intussusception. Strangulating obstruction can progress to infarction and gangrene in as little as 6 h.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Richter's Inguinal Hernia

    […] faster than ‘ordinary’ strangulated hernias.[scopemed.org] Her clinical findings were compatible with an acute surgical abdomen. A single upright abdominal film revealed free peritoneal air.[aafp.org] They present as Acute intestinal obstruction, with or without intestinal ischaemia, perforation and peritonitis, or Chronic recurrent abdominal pain and vomiting due to incomplete[surgwiki.com]

  • Small Bowel Obstruction

    Strangulated hernia is an extremely rare presentation, with only two cases described in the literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We successfully treated a 26-year-old male case of small bowel obstruction with acute peritonitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hernia Persistent vestigial structure like the omphalomesenteric duct in children Small bowel obstruction is a common phenomenon with abdominal surgery being the root cause[symptoma.com]

  • Umbilical Hernia

    The patient was thus diagnosed to have a strangulated umbilical hernia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At the clinical and radiological examination, the patient showed an enormous strangulated umbilical hernia with acute abdomen, atrial fibrillation, and pulmonary subedema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peritoneal dialysis 3. Liver cirrhosis 4. Recurrence 5. Acute strangulation 6. American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) score more than III 7.[isrctn.com]

  • Indirect Inguinal Hernia

    […] escalates to become an incarcerated or strangulated hernia , which can be life-threatening.[nycherniasurgery.com] They present as Acute intestinal obstruction, with or without intestinal ischaemia, perforation and peritonitis, or Chronic recurrent abdominal pain and vomiting due to incomplete[surgwiki.com] This is called a strangulated inguinal hernia, and surgery may be needed to correct the problem.[northdallassurgical.com]

  • Laparoscopy

    In the case of small bowel obstruction due to incarcerated inguinal hernia, laparoscopic surgery, including TEP or TAPP repair, may be used to treat incarcerated or strangulated[doi.org] The hernioscopy was performed with a 0 5 mm scope with reliable evaluation of the peritoneal cavity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sarit C, Eliezer A, Mizrahi S (2003) Minimally invasive repair of recurrent strangulated umbilical hernia in cirrhotic patient with refractory ascites.[doi.org]

  • Large Bowel Obstruction

    -scars, hernias -bowel sounds: high-pitched w/ rushes early, silent if late -tympanitic to percussion -diffuse abd tenderness -altered e-lytes -elevated BUN/Cr- dehydration[quizlet.com] Resection and primary anastomosis of the acute left-sided large bowel obstruction seems safe after antegrade on-table colonic lavage, provided bowel gangrene with peritonitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If strangulation or perforation occurs there will be features of an acute abdomen with peritonism. Check hernial orifices. Femoral hernia is at high risk of obstruction.[patient.info]

  • Appendicitis

    hernia, acute cholecystitis, perforated peptic ulcer, mesenteric adenitis, Meckel's diverticulitis, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, pancreatitis, rectus sheath haematoma[patient.info] […] with generalized peritonitis (disorder) acute appendicitis with peritoneal abscess acute appendicitis with peritoneal abscess (disorder) vermiform appendixitis vermiform[wikidata.org] Acute appendicitis in peritoneal dialysis patients generally presents as abdominal pain and cloudy dialysate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Direct Inguinal Hernia

    Indirect inguinal hernias have a higher risk of strangulation.[ijcasereportsandimages.com] They present as Acute intestinal obstruction, with or without intestinal ischaemia, perforation and peritonitis, or Chronic recurrent abdominal pain and vomiting due to incomplete[surgwiki.com] The strangulation rate for inguinal hernias was found to be 29.7%.[link.springer.com]

  • Diverticular Abscess

    We could not find any reports of complicated diverticulitis to present as a strangulated hernia in patients with pre-existing inguinal hernia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code K65 K65 Peritonitis K65.0 Generalized (acute) peritonitis K65.1 Peritoneal abscess K65.2 Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis K65.3 Choleperitonitis[icd10data.com] ) peritonitis K651Peritoneal abscess K652Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis K653Choleperitonitis K654Sclerosing mesenteritis K658Other peritonitis K659Peritonitis, unspecified[cms.gov]
