Question (03/28 /2012):

Title: Omental adhesions and obstruction of the duodenum.

Causes of omental adhesions and obstruction of the duodenum.

Answer:

Adhesions between viscera and the underside of the liver are usually encountered, particularly when an interval repair is performed, and these may be dense.

Obstruction of the duodenum occurs in adults and infants, each for a different set of reasons. In adults, the usual cause is a peptic ulcer.

Omental adhesions are often found during laparotomy (surgical procedure involving a large incision through the abdominal wall to gain access into the abdominal cavity) and have no clear cause.
