Appendicitis as a rare cause of mechanical small-bowel obstruction: A literature review of case reports

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Appendicitis as a cause of small-bowel obstruction is an extremely rare.

Our study confirmed that this complication is difficult to diagnose preoperatively.

A conclusive diagnosis typically has to wait until visualization during the surgery.

Surgical management varies from appendectomy up to right-sided hemicolectomy.

Mentions: Mechanical obstruction, with or without strangulation, can result from loops of the small bowel becoming entangled and pinched by the inflamed appendix, or adhesion of the distal end of the appendix to loops of the small bowel, cecum, or retroperitoneum [3]. This creates conditions wherein the small bowel can herniate through the ring-like structure formed by the inflamed appendix; herniation can occur with or without strangulation (Fig. 1).
