Abstract

The experience of our 16 patients treated for membranous duodenal stenosis is reported. Their treatment and course was analysed in a retrospective study. Eight patients were operated on within the first 16 days of life and in the remaining group surgery was performed at 1 month to 4 y of age. The presenting symptom leading to diagnosis was, in all but one case, non-bile-stained vomiting. Associated malformations were found in all but four patients, mostly morbus down. The operative procedure performed was a partial excision of the duodenal membrane and a duodenoplasty in 10 patients, a duodenojejunostomy in 5 parents, and a duodenoplasty only in 1 patient. The postoperative course was without lethal complications. One late stricture in... (More)

The experience of our 16 patients treated for membranous duodenal stenosis is reported. Their treatment and course was analysed in a retrospective study. Eight patients were operated on within the first 16 days of life and in the remaining group surgery was performed at 1 month to 4 y of age. The presenting symptom leading to diagnosis was, in all but one case, non-bile-stained vomiting. Associated malformations were found in all but four patients, mostly morbus down. The operative procedure performed was a partial excision of the duodenal membrane and a duodenoplasty in 10 patients, a duodenojejunostomy in 5 parents, and a duodenoplasty only in 1 patient. The postoperative course was without lethal complications. One late stricture in an anastomosis occurred. We conclude that in its presentation, duodenal stenosis differs from duodenal atresia, and can often be misinterpreted, resulting in a late diagnosis, and should be reported as a separate entity.
