A Case of Neonatal Small Bowel Obstruction due to Ileal Atresia with Meckal's Diverticulum
Dr Sudhir G Mehta, Dr Jagdish Bankola, Dr Kishan Chitaliya
The small bowel is the section of bowel between the stomach and the large bowel (colon). It is about 300cm long in a new born baby at full term and its function is to absorb food. Atresia-derived from the Greek components a- ("no" or "without") and tresis ("hole" or "orifice")-refers to a congenital obstruction with complete occlusion of the intestinal lumen; it accounts for 95% of obstructions. Stenosis-derived from the Greek components stenos ("narrow") and -osis ("process") and denoting narrowing- refers to a partial occlusion with incomplete obstruction and accounts for the remaining 5% of cases.
