Due to the inability of gastrografin
enema to reduce the intussusception and probable mass or polyp as lead point in this age group, he was taken for exploratory laparotomy where a small polyp was discovered as the likely etiology of intussusception.
All the patients were investigated by upper GI endoscopy, gastrografin
contrast studies of GIT and CT scan of abdomen along with routine blood and biochemistry tests.
Stenotic lesions were visualized using Gastrografin
to confirm the length, diameter, presence/absence of an associated fistula, and the severity of flexion in the stenotic portion.
In Figure 8A, there is a gas and Gastrografin
fluid collection in the mediastinum.
A few studies reported that gastrografin
could accurately predict the need for surgical treatment.
A leak may be present even with negative abdominal computed tomography (CT) or negative abdominal series with gastrografin
(Acquafresca et al.
To rule out esophageal perforation, the team ordered Gastrografin
and barium swallow studies.
However, since the beginning of 2014, prompted by on-going supply issues, we switched to using Gastrografin
100mls as both a laxative and tagging agent.
Barium and Gastrografin
were used as contrast media.
Diatrizoic acid (Hypaque (GE Healthcare, Inc, Princeton, New Jersey) or Gastrografin
(Schering, Berlin, Germany)) is diluted 1:1 with normal saline and injected as the contrast agent via the cholangiogram catheter to assess for patency or obstruction of the biliary tree.
Non operative therapy included classical drip & suck or undiluted Gastrografin
study revealed a significantly dilated esophagus with a narrow distal area (Figure 1).
