Intussusception in the newborn is a unique clinical entity, and one of the most unusual causes of intestinal obstruction in infants. Its cause can be idiopathic, secondary to a local lesion or a complication of disease. Early diagnosis and treatment are important, because survival depends on them. The authors report a case of jejunal atresia secondary to(More)
The suture fistula technique for long gap esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) was described by Shafer and David in 1974. Schullinger in 1982 reported five cases with fistulization occurring in four cases. In the past 2 years, we have used this technique in four infants who ranged from 1,200 to 1,700 g and in one infant who weighed 2,900(More)
Bile ascites is a rare cause of mild icterus and abdominal distension in the newborn. An indirect inguinal hernia may also occur. The authors report such a case in a 5-week-old infant. Proof was obtained by abdominal ultrasonography followed by scanning with N-(2,6-dimethyl phenyl carboxymethyl) iminodiacetic acid labelled with technetium 99m (99mTc HIDA)(More)
Ten cases of primary peritonitis in children demonstrate that the usual presentation is one of rapid onset of lower abdominal pain in girls, clinically indistinguishable from acute appendicitis. Recovery after appendectomy is rapid. Fewer cases have positive peritoneal cultures or associated illnesses than in historical descriptions. Contemporary primary(More)
This is the report of an infant seen on June 25, 1960 with preampullary total duodenal obstruction caused by a combined annular pancreas and duodenal stenosis above the ampulla. A gastroduodenostomy was performed. In December 1989, he fathered a 1,700-g boy with preampullary duodenal atresia. A duodeno-duodenostomy was performed successfully by the same(More)
