503 Possible Causes for Pneumoperitoneum

  • Laparoscopy

    We collected data to compare using this new method of peritoneal insufflation with using Palmer's point for pneumoperitoneum.[] Take the patient out of Trendelenburg position in order to optimize the decompression of the pneumoperitoneum.[] METHODS: We introduced a new point for Veress needle insertion to create pneumoperitoneum during difficult laparoscopic procedures.[]

  • Gastric Rupture

    She was diagnosed with a massive tension pneumoperitoneum, which was decompressed by needle aspiration.[] We recently encountered two cases of gastric rupture with tension pneumoperitoneum that occurred after difficult endotracheal intubation.[] Inadvertent esophageal intubation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation following aortocoronary bypass grafting resulted in gastric rupture and tension pneumoperitoneum in[]

  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

    Pneumomediastinum/oesophagus haematoma, n 4 — — Pleural fluid/blood, n 1 3 3 Lung contusion/haematoma, n 1 — 1 Liver rupture, n 1 2 — Intracranial air embolism, n 1 — — Pneumoperitoneum[]

  • Intestinal Perforation

    An abdominal X-ray demonstrated extensive PI with pneumoperitoneum mimicking hollow organ perforation.[] AIM: In view of recent studies questioning the usefulness of peritoneal drainage (PD) in premature neonates with pneumoperitoneum, suggesting approximately 75% of those treated[] We present two cases of pneumoperitoneum to discuss the non-surgical management of pneumoperitoneum and describe their outcomes.[]

  • Tubo-Ovarian Abscess

    The chest X-rays revealed the pneumoperitoneum.[] Pneumoperitoneum is often associated with the bowel perforation.[] We reported one case with TOA and pneumoperitoneum that have been mistaken for a perforated bowel with concomitant adnexal mass.[]

  • Peritonitis

    We present an original classification of tension pneumoperitoneum defining it as primary or secondary.[] In view of pneumoperitoneum and previously reported sepsis, she was taken for exploratory laparotomy.[] OBJECTIVE: To explore the influence of carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum (CDP) on system inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and bacterial translocation (BT) in patients with[]

  • Colonic Perforation

    Abdominal computed tomography scan showed extensive pneumoperitoneum, pneumoretroperitoneum, pneumomediastinum, and leftsided pneumothorax.[] In the first patient the computerized tomography revealed pneumoperitoneum, gas in the mesosigma, pneumomediastinum, wall thickening of the descending colon, and retroperitoneal[] Chest X-ray showed a pneumoperitoneum, which was an indication for emergency surgery. The patient had a laparotomy approach five hours after perforation.[]

  • Intestinal Infarction

CrossRef PubMed Google Scholar 44.[] […] pneumobilia because gas usually reaches the periphery of the liver while pneumobilia is usually about 2 cm short of external liver border, and is more clustered at the hilum pneumoperitoneum[] Prolonged pneumoperitoneum at 15 mmHg causes lactic acidosis. Surg Endosc 1998;12:198–201. CrossRef PubMed Google Scholar 43. Windsor MA, Bonham MJ, Rumball M.[]

  • Diverticulitis of the Colon

    […] there is evidence of extraluminal contrast (red arrow) from a perforated diverticulum, Conventional Radiography Sentinel loop or, less likely, LBO Air bubbles in abscess Pneumoperitoneum[]

  • Jejunal Diverticulosis

    […] of jejunal diverticulosis with pneumoperitoneum from the literature.[] Pneumoperitoneum is documented over the course of many years, with recurrence after partial small bowel resection.[] Although spontaneous pneumoperitoneum due to jejunal diverticulosis is a rare finding, when it does occur, this condition must be distinguished from other forms of pneumoperitoneum[]
