When that step is completed, the balloon is moved down approximately 2 cm and the process repeated until the full 10 cm of the duodenal length from the ampulla of Vater to the ligament of Treitz is ablated.
This has evolved since the last decade and nutrients given beyond Treitz ligament, the post-pyloric feeding, decrease pancreatic stimulation, thus improving the overall outcome13.
1) An important initial step in the evaluation of GIB involves determining whether the source of the bleed is proximal or distal to the ligament of Treitz, located at the junction between the fourth segment of duodenum and proximal jejunum.
An ileo-ileal invagination was observed during laparotomy at a location 220 cm distal to the Treitz ligament.
The head of the pancreas and the duodenum are typically held down by the ligament of Treitz and hence herniation of the pancreas usually does not occur [4].
Additional diagnostic imaging criteria include duodenal obstruction with abrupt cut-off in the third portion in setting of active peristalsis, and/or anatomic abnormalities such as high fixation of duodenum by the ligament of Treitz and anomaly of SMA.
