Duodenal Obstruction

About

Duodenal obstruction is the partial or complete obstruction of the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. This prevents the food from passing through the digestive tract and interferes with the digestion and nutrition.

Duodenal Atresia is the 3rd most common atresia of the gastrointestinal tract.[1]

- Treated by a medical professional
- Lab test or imaging required
- Short to medium: Resolves within a few days to weeks, may require repeated intervention

Duodenal obstruction is often associated with Down Syndrome. This failure may be ischemic or genetic.

Symptoms

- Bloating of the intestine
- Vomiting, a greenish appearance of vomitus
- Diarrhea
- Dehydration
- Weight loss
- Irritability
- Difficulty breathing
- Excessive salivation and drooling

Treatment:

Self-care:
You should immediately consult your doctor in case of the appearance of any of the symptoms. If an infant pulls his knee up with frequent crying, it may be serious.

Medications:

- Evaluation is carried out to find out signs of other congenital syndromes
- Intravenous fluids may be given to restore electrolyte balance and correct fluid levels in the body
- A nasogastric tube is placed through the infants nose to decompress the stomach and the duodenum
- Surgery is performed to correct the duodenal atresia, which is known as duodenoduodenostomy. It involves opening the duodenal channel along the stomach to the next portion of the intestine
