CRESPO CAMPOS, Angelicia; SARMIENTO PORTAL, Yanett; PORTAL MIRANDA, María Elena and PILONA RUIZ, Sergio. Congenital bridle present in intestines. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2009, vol.81, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3119.
Congenital obstruction of digestive tract is one of the more frequent neonatal surgical pathologies. Authors present the case of a newborn that at 30 hrs of life, even without meconium evacuation, had bilious vomiting, abdominal distention, irritability, and decrease of hydro-aerial bruits. After a combined assessment with other specialties and the corresponding studies, we decided to perform an emergence surgical intervention. A congenital bridle was found at level of terminal ileum with an elbowed intestine allowing the incomplete passage of fecal content. The course was satisfactory without complications and discharged at 17 days. Authors offer an updating review on matter including photographies of the case.
