To date, there are no reported experiences of duodenal lengthening in adults.

The procedure was repeated approximately every cm until the duodeno-colonic anastomosis was reached. Comparison of intestinal lengthening procedures for patients with short bowel syndrome.

This technique increases bowel length via the application of sequential stapling on alternating sides in a plane perpendicular to the long axis of the bowel. Megaduodenum facilitates hioeresplenismo incompetence with alkaline reflux and dysmotility with stasis of intraluminal contents which may hieresplenismo in bacterial overgrowth and malabsorption. Glycemia control continues to be as difficult as that experienced before surgery.

Ann Nutr Metab ; July 27, ; Accepted: Paseo Valle de Hebron, Serum liver function test was as follows: The restoration of intestinal tract continuity is one of the mainstays of autologous gut reconstruction to obtain hiperesplfnismo absorptive and digestive properties of the colon. This procedure gains additional intestinal length in a challenging area of autologous gut reconstruction.

Duodenal lengthening in short bowel with dilated duodenum. A gastrostomy tube drained gastric and bilio-pancreatic secretions output range: Although, the patient is able hiperesplenismp successfully treat hypoglycemia episodes via the oral route. A gastrostomy tube was left in place to facilitate drainage of gastric and bilio-pancreatic secretions. The main advantage of this new technique is that an additional intestinal absorptive surface is obtained without the need to discard any duodenal portion.

Postabsorptive plasma citrulline concentration is a marker of absorptive enterocyte mass and intestinal failure in humans. The time required on a parenteral pump has shortened from the entire day to only 9 hours at night. The volume and calorie requirements were also reduced by half.



The gastrostomy tube output ranged from 2. The vertexes of the cutting line were reinforced with a vicryl U stitch to prevent duodenal leaks. With a follow-up of 24 months, the patient currently weighs 47 kg and leads a normal life. Citrulline blood levels as indicators of residual intestinal absorption in patients with short bowel syndrome.

A year-old man with a history of mid-gut volvulus was referred to our center for intestinal transplant evaluation.

An enema showing a defunctionalized transverse colon from the hepatic flexure. One question arises regarding the role of this surgical technique in the adaptation process.

The patient developed acute renal failure postoperatively and required hemodialysis for three months. The third portion of the duodenum had been stapled, leaving a duodenal stump. Duodenal lengthening was performed with 7 sequential transverse applications 5 of 45 mm and 2 of 60 mm of an endoscopic stapler Endo GIA Stapler, Covidien LLC, Mansfield, MA, USA on the duodenal anterior and posterior walls, respecting the pancreatic parenchyma as described elsewhere 4 Fig.

He also follows an oral low-fiber diet ad libitum. Tapering duodenoplasty and gastrojejunostomy in the management of idiopathic megaduodenum in children. In addition, the plasma citrulline level was Moreover, a colonic mucous fistula was created at the level of the transverse colon hepatic flexure. Despite meticulous insulin dosage management, the control of blood glycemia levels was extremely complex with frequent episodes of hypo-hyperglycemia.

This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License. Serial transverse duodenoplasty not only gains an additional intestinal length when combined with simultaneous STEP but can also be applied successfully in patients with ultra-SBS.

This procedure is reserved for cases with life-threatening complications from TPN. Hypoglycemia during the PN-free period necessitated I. A 25 year old man with extreme SBS on total parenteral nutrition TPN secondary to mid-gut volvulus at the age of 19 was referred to our center for intestinal transplant evaluation.


Splenectomy for splenomegaly and secondary hypersplenism

We have recently demonstrated the feasibility of lengthening the duodenum in children with short bowel syndrome and a dilated duodenum. The next firing was similar from the opposite side, creating a duodenal channel 3 cm in diameter. Antibiotics were administered postoperatively for 3 days. Duodenal lengthening may be effective as part of the autologous intestinal reconstruction armamentarium in adults with short bowel syndrome.

Surgical treatment at the time of the intestinal catastrophe consisted of the removal of the fourth part of the duodenum, the whole jejunum, ileon and ascending colon.

The pre-lengthening citrulline level increased from Since these anatomical structures are situated inside the thickness of the pancreatic hiperesplenismoo, the risk of injury is circumvented by stapling the anterior and posterior aspects of the duodenum at a sufficient distance from the pancreas.

Furthermore, tapering of the dilated intestine improves bowel motility, thus reducing the risk of bacterial overgrowth. Herein, we report the successful application of this technique in an adult with ultra-short bowel syndrome. The most critical surgical issue is the prevention of damage to the biliary and pancreatic ducts.

Only a megaduodenum stump that reached as secundaruo as the third portion 30 cm of length and the colon up to the hepatic flexure in the form of a mucous fistula was retained. Upper gastrointestinal series prior to the duodenal lengthening procedure showing the massively dilated duodenum ending in a hiperespleniismo. J Pediatr Surg ;
