  • Appendicitis

    Twenty-eight days after transplantation, the patient developed mild abdominal pain and paralytic ileus. There was no apparent infection sign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most common complications of appendectomy and peritonitis are (1) infection of the surgical wound, (2) paralytic ileus due to irritation of the small bowel, (3) abscesses[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

    Twelve patients with OHSS and ascites were included in the study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Gastrointestinal system findings include ascites (third-spacing of fluid) ( [Figure 2] ), paralytic ileus, and enlarged ovaries.[asja.eg.net] We removed 45 liters of ascitic fluid in total and 7.5 liters of ascitic fluid in one course, leading to improvement of the patient's condition and laboratory parameters.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myxedema

    Myxedema ascites is thus rare but easy to treat; it should be borne in mind, especially if the ascites fluid has a high protein content.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The low serum thyroid hormonal levels decreases intestinal motility that advertently leads to megacolon, gastric atony, and paralytic ileus.[symptoma.com] In addition, neuropathic changes can cause malabsorption, gastric atony, impaired peristalsis, paralytic ileus, and megacolon.

    Serum c-reactive protein (7.88 6.62 mg/dL vs 3.12 2.69 mg/dL, P 0.01), ascites adenosine deaminase (66.76 32.09 IU/L vs 13.89 8.95 IU/L, P 0.01), ascites lymphocyte proportion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ABDOMINAL COMPLICATIONS • Adhesional small bowel obstruction • Paralytic ileus • Residual or recurrent abscesses • Portal pyemia/liver abscess 5.[slideshare.net] In three patients (15.78%), the ascitic fluid culture was positive.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Umbilical Hernia

    All of the reported cases in the literature were adults with liver disease and ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Complications Potential complications of umbilical hernia repair include the following (see Outcomes ): Seroma Hematoma Wound infection Bowel injury Paralytic ileus Hernia[emedicine.medscape.com] Umbilical hernia repair is often accompanied by complications in patients with liver cirrhosis and ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria

    A PVS is a treatment option for ascites due to BCS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ileus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Depending on their localization, thromboses (which affect 30-40 % of untreated patients) may manifest as abdominal pain, hepatomegaly, ascites and headaches.[orpha.net]

  • Chylous Ascites

    The clinical data of the patients with postoperative chylous ascites were compared with those of the patients without chylous ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Presentation varies based on the severity of the chyle leak, from progressive abdominal distension, pressure-related dyspnea, to widespread edema and paralytic ileus [1] [[ijcasereportsandimages.com] Chylous ascites is a rare complication of abdominal surgery in children. Particularly, reports of postoperative chylous ascites are rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
