Neonatal bowel obstruction (NBO) or neonatal intestinal obstruction is the most common surgical emergency in the neonatal period. It may occur due to a variety of conditions and has an excellent outcome based on timely diagnosis and appropriate lty: Neonatology. Duodenal obstruction in the presence of situs inversus has been described, including obstruction due to a web, stenosis, pre-duodenal portal vein and complete atresia. A review of consecutive cases of intestinal obstruction in the newborn period seen over a fourteen-year period is presented and the various causes are discussed. Follow-up data on the survivals are recorded. The mortality rate was per cent. It fell from to in comparable seven-year by: [Duodenal atresia of the new-born: a cured case].

The major complications of the disease, even after surgical resection, are bowel obstruction and enterocolitis, though most patients go on to normal or near-normal bowel function.

Duodenal atresia. The duodenum is the first portion of the small intestine after the stomach and sometimes there is a lack of development to it so that it is closed off and causes an obstruction. Duodenal atresia is rare (1 per to 10, live births) and can occur as a complete or partial blockage of any portion of the duodenum. Duodenal atresia is the congenital absence or complete closure of a portion of the lumen of the causes increased levels of amniotic fluid during pregnancy (polyhydramnios) and intestinal obstruction in newborn raphy shows a distended stomach and distended duodenum, which are separated by the pyloric valve, a finding described as the double-bubble lty: Medical genetics. Duodenal obstruction is remarkably well tolerated by the newborn. Although the diag- nosis may have been delayed for periods up to five days, the fluid and electrolyte derange- ments are generally less severe than in cases of lower gastrointestinal by: 3. In 39 cases of rupture of the intestine in the new¬ born, collected by Russell,7 28 were thought to have become perforated during birth. It was his opinion that the pressure of the birth canal on an intestine filled with meconium produced the rupture. In 13 of the 39 cases, rupture of the intes¬ tine occurred proximal to an obstruction.
