There are differences in treatment options between primary and secondary pneumatosis intestinalis. Other factors influencing treatment include laboratory values and clinical presentation of the patient. Since PI is not a disease in itself but a clinical sign, treatment begins with the underlying cause Treatment of intestinal pneumatosis Given the secondary nature of intestinal pneumatosis, the treatment of the pathology that caused it will be effective. However, with pronounced symptoms that cause suffering to the patient or endanger the life, there is a need for symptomatic treatment
Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI), or the presence of air in the bowel wall, is a rare disorder that is associated with a variety of underlying diseases, including connective tissue disorders. PI presents on a spectrum from asymptomatic to bowel obstruction and acute abdomen. In general, treatment of PI consists of treating the underlying disease Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) refers to the presence of gas within the wall of the small or large intestine. Intramural gas can also affect the stomach, but this condition is referred to as gastric pneumatosis [ 1 ]. Since its first description, PI has appeared in the literature under many names, including pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis.
Treatment options include bowel rest, antibiotics, surgery, and, more recently, the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is extremely safe, with no reported complications in the literature when used for pneumatosis intestinalis Pneumatosis intestinalis is a rare condition of air in the bowel wall. Pneumatosis intestinalis is most often secondary to another medical condition. The diagnosis is most often made radiologically with a computed tomography scan. The disease severity ranges from benign to life-threatening. Predictors of poor outcome Pneumatosis intestinalis is a rare condition characterized by subserosal and submucosal gas-filled cysts in the gastrointestinal tract; it may be associated with bowel ischemia, perforation, and a high mortality rate. As a result, many authorities advocate an aggressive surgical approach in patients with pneumatosis intestinalis Most published cases of pneumatosis intestinalis with radiological finding of pneu-moperitoneum were treated conservatively and should have not been considered as a reason for surgery. Therefore, the treatment of PI can present as a major dilemma for the surgeon. Key words: Pneumatosis; intestine; immunosuppression; surger
Pneumatosis intestinalis, defined as gas in the bowel wall, is often first identified on abdominal radiographs or computed tomography (CT) scans.
