263 Possible Causes for Neonatal Intestinal Obstruction

  • Umbilical Hernia

    An umbilical hernia is a type of abdominal wall hernia which may occur in children and adults. In the newborn, a hernia is usually present at the site of the umbilicus. A small sac usually protrudes through the umbilicus as the child cries, coughs or strains. The bulge may disappear spontaneously when the baby is calm.[…][symptoma.com]

  • Indirect Inguinal Hernia

    Abstract We performed a genetic analysis of 280 families with congenital indirect inguinal hernia ascertained in Shandong province. The multifactorial threshold model and segregation analysis were applied to these families to investigate the mode of inheritance of congenital indirect inguinal hernia. Our results indicate[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Direct Inguinal Hernia

    OBJECTIVE: The aetiology of inguinal hernia involves changes in collagen turnover and metalloproteinase expression; yet it is not known whether the elastic fibre system could also be affected. This study was designed to compare the expression of tropoelastin (TE), lysyl oxidase-like 1 (LOXL-1) and elastase in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Femoral Hernia

    The author reports the case of a 69-year-old woman with acute gangrenous appendicitis in a strangulated right femoral hernia. The hernia was diagnosed preoperatively, but the gangrenous appendix was found in a strangulated loop of small bowel only at operation. The combination of gangrenous appendicitis and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Intestinal Duplication

    Intestinal Atresias Intestinal atresias (duodenal, jejunal and ileal) are common and account for approximately one third of all cases of neonatal intestinal obstruction, but[hawaii.edu] In view of definite intestinal obstruction and gross abdominal distension, no further investigations were performed.[jscimedcentral.com] Failure to pass meconium: diagnosing neonatal intestinal obstruction.
