Episiotomy (Surgical Cut in Perineum)


An Upper or proximal GI tract bleed will lead to what 2 clinical conditions?

Hematemesis - Vomiting of blood (coffee ground appearance)
Melena - Dark, sticky, tarry stool


An Lower or Distal GI tract bleed will lead to what clinical conditions?

Hematochezia - Fresh, bright red blood in stool.


What is Peyer's Patches?

Aggregated Lymphoid nodules in the ileum.


A patient is ,experiencing Periumbilical Pain. This may suggest what clinical condition?

Initial Appendicitis


A patient is experiencing pain between her ASIS and umbilical region, approximately 1/3 distancr from her Anterior superior iliac spine. What is the name of the anatomical location? What is the most likely clinical condition?

McBurney's Point
Acute Appendicitis


Anastomosis between the foregut and midgut involve which arteries?

Superior pancreaticoduodenal artery
Inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery


Anastomosis between the midgut and hindgut involve which arteries?

Middle colic artery
Left colic artery

(Together known as Marginal artery of Drummond)


Where is the most common point of colonic Ischemia?

At the splenic flexure (Also known as Sudeck's Point)


-Liver cells replaced with fibrous scar tissue
-Liver becomes firm
-Hepatic Circulation becomes inhibited
-Usually treated with portal to caval shunt

What clinical condition presents the symptoms above?

Liver Cirrhosis


Name the 3 relevant Portocaval Anastomosis (Clinically relevant anastomosis when portal hepatic vein is blocked and blood must reverse its way to IVC)

Gastroesophageal - Involving Left gastric to esophageal branch veins.
Rectoanal - Involving Superior rectal to middle/inferior rectal vein.
Paraumbilical - Involving Paraumbilical to epigastric vein.


Name one relevant anastomosis during severe portal Hypertension ...

Left/Right gastric veins to esophogeal Veins.


What is portal Hypertension?

Increased blood pressure of blood travelling through portal vein.
(This can cause blockage as well as anastomosis)


Explain Caput Medusa ...

This is portal Hypertension causing retroflow from paraumbilical veins to to epigastric veins leading to dialysis of epigastric veins


What are the 2 shunts made in order to treat/reduce a case of Caput Medusa?

1st Shunt - Portal vein to IVC
2nd Shunt - Splenic Vein to Left Renal Vein


What are hemorrhoids?
Name the anastomosis that may be involved...

Swollen veins in rectal canal.

(Can cause anastomosis from inferior rectal veins to superior rectal veins)

Internal Hemorrhoids - Above pectinate line is painless due to visceral innervation.
External Hemorrhoids - Below pectinate line is painful due to somatic innervation.


What is peritonitis?

Inflammation of Peritoneum


What is Ascites?

Excess fluid (Ascitic fluid) within peritoneal cavity

Usually treated by paracentesis (Surgical drainage of ascitic fluid)


Explain how peritoneal Dialysis work during renal failure ...

Sterile fluid is introduced into peritoneal cavity to alter concentration gradient allowing waste products such as urea from blood to diffuse into peritoneal cavity. These waste products are then extracted from peritoneal cavity to compensate for renal system.


What is an effective way to minimize blood loss during hepatic surgery?

Clamping portal triad

(Found within hepatoduodenal ligament and consist of hepatic proper artery, Hepatic Portal Vein, Common bile duct)


What is Omental Bursa herniation?

Ability of small intestine passing through omental foramen (foramen between greater and lesser sac) and being trapped/entangled in lesser sac.


What are Peritoneal Adhesions?

Fibrous bands connecting from visceral peritoneum to abnormal places such as adjacent organ or parietal peritoneum.

(Can lead to chronic pain or intestinal obstruction)


What nerves are at risk during an appendectomy (removal of appendix)?

Ilioinguinal Nerve
Iliohypogastric Nerve


Where is pain referred to during initial and acute appendicitis?

Initial - T10 Dermatome (general / visceral)
Acute - McBurney's Point (localized / somatic)


What bone structures protect the Spleen?

Left ribs 9 / 10 / 11


What is Volvulus?

Twisting and rotation of mobile loops of intestinal tract.

(Usually associated with sigmoid colon, can lead to ischemia/constipation)


What is Intussuception?

The invagination of one bowel segment into a distal segment of the gastrointestinal tract .

(Usually happens at the ilieocecal valve/junction)


What is Colonic Diverticulosis?

Out-Pocketings of the mucosa of Colon.


What is Crohn Disease?

Chronic inflammation of the grastointestinal tract


What is Troisier's sign and what does it indicate?

Enlarged left supraclavicular lymph nodes which indicate abdominal cancer.


Distinct lesions found in stomach, pyloric canal, or duodenum is a case of what clinical condition?
