Intraabdominal Adhesion, Internal Herniation and the Result: Short Bowel Syndrome - A Case Report

Omer Engin, Mebrure Evnur Uyar, Chaitali Sen, Tore Oguzhan Sunamak

Adhesions can occur after abdominal surgery. Adhesions can be asymptomatic or can cause abdominal pain, internal herniation and mechanic intestinal obstructions. In our case, whom appendectomy was performed 5 years ago, there was an adhesion between the intestinal loop and cecum and a tunnel occured between intestinal loop and bowel mesentery. Necrosis has occurred as a result of herniation of intestinal loops from this tunnel and a 180 cm of small bowel has been resected. In our case report, problems that we met have been discussed.
