esophagography did not detect any evidence of esophageal perforation.
enema did not reveal an anastomotic leak and an abdominal CT scan did not reveal an abscess.
Consider a Gastrografin
enema to look for appendiceal pathology in patients with endometriosis and right lower quadrant pain, Dr.
There was extravasation of contrast from the distal esophagus suggestive of esophageal perforation that was confirmed with a gastrografin
swallows were obtained only on a selective basis.
An upper gastrointestinal series and small-bowel Gastrografin
(Bristol-Myers Squibb, Princeton, NJ) study showed a large duodenal diverticulum in the third portion.
After the treatment of the perforation, some of the patients underwent an imaging study (computed tomographic scan or Gastrografin
swallow) that did not reveal any contrast leaks.
Postoperatively, patients undergo a Gastrografin
(Schering AG, Berlin, Germany) swallow the morning after surgery to rule out a leak.
swallow, esophagogastroscopy, and a bronchoscopy showed no leak or any other abnormality.
In our series, the vast majority of the patients who developed gastrogastric fistulas were diagnosed with either a Gastrografin
study or an [intraoperative esophagogastroduodenoscopy], dramatically reducing the need for the more costly CT as a diagnostic method," the investigators said.
Six patients in the CG developed a leak as evidenced by drainage > 100 mL/24 hours, which was confirmed by a Gastrografin
A computed tomography scan of the abdomen and pelvis with Gastrografin
and Omni-paque 350 revealed a 12.
