Shattuck from a review o' his cases says: [quot] It is rational to conclude that the severe symptoms corresponding to the ordinary text-book picture of intestinal perforation in typhoid were, in the majority of cases, caused by the general septic peritonitis resulting from a perforation or a threatened per- foration, the occurrence of which Author: Donald Armour.

Finally, we hope and believe that the condensed history of this case will be an important addition to the surgery of the gall-bladder, and we are of opinion that this is the first time that the operation of abdominal section has been successfully performed for so rare a condition as perforating ulcer of the gall-bladder not associated with.

Von Leyden in suggested that the only rational way of treating perforations of the stomach and intestines was surgical.

In the same year Miculicz closed a typhoid perforation. The patient, a man 40 years of age, recovered. Fourteen years later Keen collected 83 cases with a recovery. Commonest cause of GIP were perforated appendix %, perforated peptic ulcer disease %, traumatic perforation % and resulting in recovery book typhoid ileal perforation 13%.

About 1 in 4 perforations were at the. A hundred cases of enteric perforation, treated surgically by single- or double-layer closure, were studied prospectively.

Mortality and morbidity rates were and % and comparable in the. Introduction. Perforated peptic ulcer (PPU) is a surgical emergency and is associated with short-term mortality and morbidity in up to 30 and 50% of patients, respectively. 1 Worldwide variation in demography, socioeconomic status, Helicobacter pylori prevalence and prescription drugs make investigation into risk factors for PPU difficult.

PPU presents as an acute abdominal condition. Intestinal perforation resulting from a complication of typhoid fever has always been a cause of concern because of its high morbidity and mortality rates. InOsler 15 reported a series of 23 cases of intestinal perforation in a group of patients affected by typhoid fever.

This perforation incidence of about 3% has not changed despite. Keenan JP, Hadley GP. The surgical management of depression, chronic malnutrition, or stress ulcer bleed- typhoid perforation in children. Br J Surg ;– ing. Wound infection occurred in 50% of our cases.

In a consider able number of cases the ulcer is absolutely latent, resembling gastric ulcer in this respect. A case of perforating typhoid ulcer treated by operation and suture patient is suddenly seized with agonising abdominal pain, rapid tympanites ensues, and he dies in eighteen or twenty-four hours in profound collapse.

Odds of mortality was 13 times greater with perforated peptic ulcer disease (OR =p = ) and 12 times greater with trauma (OR =p = ) when compared to the most common operation.

The records of 22 surgically-treated patients with typhoid intestinal perforation were evaluated retrospectively. There were 18 males and 4 females, mean age 37 years (range, years). Perforated typhoid ileitis is still a dreaded complication of typhoid fever that is predominantly found in developing countries in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa (1, 2).

Reports show that % of. Perforated peptic ulcer is a common emergency condition worldwide, with associated mortality rates of up to 30%.

A scarcity of high-quality studies about the condition limits the knowledge base for clinical decision making, but a few published randomised trials are available.

Although Helicobacter pylori and use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are common causes, demographic. The objective is to compare primary repair vs intestinal resection in cases of intestinal typhoid perforations.

In addition, we hypothesised the usefulness of laparostomy for the early diagnosis and treatment of complications. patients with acute peritonitis underwent emergency laparotomy: number of perforations, distance of perforations from the ileocaecal valve, and type of surgery.

Diagnosis of perforation is often late, even when it occurs in hospitalized patients. These ulcers develop in approximately 5 percent of hospitalized patients, and almost always in patients whose antibiotic treatment started late or had not yet become effective (Chalya and others ).

Perforated typhoid ulcer 40 years ago was considered to. Iteliminated typhoid as a significant cause ofmorbidity and mortality in the U.S. developed countries saw declining rates of typhoid fever throughout the first halfof the 20th century due to vaccinations and advances in public sanitation and otics were introduced in clinical practice ingreatly reducing.

Lau and Leow have indicated that perforated peptic ulcer was clinically recognized bybut the first successful surgical management of gastric ulcer was by Ludwig Heusner in Germany in InHenry Percy Dean from London was the first surgeon to report successful repair of a perforated duodenal ulcer.

No major change in the treatment of typhoid fever occurred until the advent of antimicrobial agents. In Woodward et al. reported the recovery of one patient with perforation who had been treated nonsurgically with chloramphenicol, streptomycin, and penicillin [34].

The operation may be accomplished either by means of the end-to-end method of Carrel, or by a lateral suture. Laparoscopic repair of perforated ulcers is increasingly being used, reaching rates of 30–45% in recent series.

1 1, 7 2 However, the uptake of laparoscopy varies worldwide. A recent US study reported that less than 3% of patients with perforated peptic ulcer were treated by laparoscopy.

Ideally difficult cases and patients undergoing major operations, particularly if insulin treated, should be discussed with the Diabetes team, well in advance if possible. Gowning gloving hand-washing. ; Drug therapy in relation to surgey and anaesthesia.

Gastroduodenal perforation. Surgery is the treatment of choice for perforated peptic ulcers. In selected cases (patients younger than 70 years of age without septic shock or peritonitis and showing no spillage of water-soluble contrast medium in a gastroduodenogram), non-operative management may be appropriate.

SURGICAL MANAGEMENT • Removal of the entire colon "cures" Ulcerative colitis. Eliminates the long-term risk of cancer. • A surgeon can do that by two different types of surgery: • Proctocolectomy and ileostomy.

• Proctocolectomy and ileoanal reservoir.(IPAA) • Full recovery from both operations may take 4 to 6 weeks. Fever %, abdominal pain %, abdominal distension %, and guarding % were the most common presenting features. Generalized peritonitis was seen in %. The most common causes of GIP were perforated appendix %, perforated peptic ulcer disease %, traumatic perforation %, and typhoid ileal perforation 13%.
