Pexy of intraperitoneal LVAD driveline to relieve small bowel obstruction.

Summary of "Pexy of intraperitoneal LVAD driveline to relieve small bowel obstruction."

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation is a lifesaving intervention in advanced heart failure. However, LVAD is not without complication. In this case, an inadvertent intraperitoneal driveline caused small bowel obstruction, subsequently requiring pexy of the driveline to the abdominal wall to avoid future complications.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The hindering of output from the STOMACH into the SMALL INTESTINE. This obstruction may be of mechanical or functional origin such as EDEMA from PEPTIC ULCER; NEOPLASMS; FOREIGN BODIES; or AGING.

A PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY finding of excessively dense fetal bowel due to MECONIUM buildup.

Blockage in any part of the URETER causing obstruction of urine flow from the kidney to the URINARY BLADDER. The obstruction may be congenital, acquired, unilateral, bilateral, complete, partial, acute, or chronic. Depending on the degree and duration of the obstruction, clinical features vary greatly such as HYDRONEPHROSIS and obstructive nephropathy.
