Treatment of acute postoperative ileus with octreotide.

Prolonged postoperative ileus, also known as pathologic postoperative ileus, can be caused by a myriad of kleus processes that are treated with limited success by clinical and pharmacologic management. In CT, spongiform structure containing the cystic lesions, air bubbles, hyperdense capsule, and spotted calcifications can be seen characteristically inside GP.

Mechanisms of postoperative ileus. Respiratory Intrauterine hypoxia Infant respiratory distress syndrome Transient tachypnea of the newborn Meconium aspiration syndrome pleural disease Pneumothorax Pneumomediastinum Wilson—Mikity syndrome Bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

Case 10 Case Opioid therapy for postoperative or chronic pain is frequently associated with adverse effects, the most common being dose-limiting and debilitating bowel dysfunction, so alvimopan and methylnaltrexone may also be useful in the treatment of chronic opioid bowel dysfunction.
