What structures does the midgut give rise to?

Small intestine
Caecum
Appendix
Ascending colon
Prox two thirds of transverse colon

1

How does the midgut start to develop?

Begins as a short tube, elongates enormously until it has run out of space
It then forms a primary intestinal loop

2

PICTURESGive features of the primary intestinal loop

The superior mesentric artery is its axis
It is connected to the yolk sac by the vitelline duct
Has cranial and caudal limbs

3

Why does physiological herniation occur?

Primary intestinal loop grows so rapidly at he same time as the liver. The abdominal cavity is too small to accommodate them so intestines herniate into umbilical cord

4

In which week does the physiological herniation occur?

6

5

PICTURE What happens in the first 90* turn?

The distal part of the gut tube is left and the proximal part is right

6

PICTURE What happens after the first 90* turn?

The distal part develops a bulge which will become the caecum/caecum bud
The proximal part becomes convoluted

7

PICTURE How does the midgut return to the abdominal cavity?

Proximal part returns first, passing under the distal part, making the second rotation
The distal limb then returns, making another rotation

8

What happens in the descent of the cecal bud?

Temporarily lies in the upper right quadrant, just beneath the liver
Descends down the right hand side of the abdominal cavity into the right iliac fossa
It develops a narrow diverticulum - the appendix

9

Derivatives of the proximal limb of the midgut?

Distal duodenum, jejunum, proximal ileum

10

Derivatives of the caudal/distal limb of the midgut?

Distal ileum, cecum, appendix, ascending colon, proximal two thirds of the transverse colon

11

What happens if there is incomplete rotation of the midgut?

When the midgut makes only one 90* rotation, colon and cecum are the first to return causing a left sided colon

12

What happens if there is reverse rotation?

Midgut makes a rotation clockwise
Transverse colon passes posterior to the duodenum

13

What is a vitelline cyst?

Caused by persistence of the vitelline duct in the middle but both ends form fibrous strands
A cyst forms in the middle portion

14

What is a vitelline fistula?

When the whole vitelline duct remains patent over the entire length, forming a direct communication between the umbilicus and intestinal tract.

15

What is a Meckel's diverticulum?

When a small portion of the vitelline duct persists, forming an outpocketing of the ileum

16

When can problems arise in a Meckel's diverticulum?

If it contains heterotopic pancreatic tissue or gastric mucosa
Can cause ulceration, bleeding, perforation

17

Give the rule of twos about the Meckel's diverticulum

2% of population
2ft from ileocoecal valve
2 inches long
Detected in under 2s
2:1 male:female

18

When a Meckel's diverticulum becomes inflamed, what is the main differential diagnosis?

Appendicitis

19

What incomplete recanalisation lead to?

Atresia of the tube affected - lumen is obliterated
Stenosis of the tube - lumen is narrowed

20

What can contribute to the incomplete recanalisation?

'Vascular accident'
Impairment of blood supply to that part of the tube

21

Where can incomplete recanalisation occur?

Oesophagus
Bile duct
Small intestine
Duodenum (most common)

22

What is pyloric stenosis?

Hypertrophy of the circular muscle in the region of the pyloric sphincter NOT A RECANALISATION FAILURE

23

Clinical presentation of pyloric stenosis?

Projectile vomiting in infants

24

What can 'vascular accidents' be caused by?

Malrotation
Volvulus
Body wall defect

25

Clinical presentation of gastroschisis?

Protrusion of abdominal contenders through the body wall directly into the amniotic cavity.
Occurs lateral to umbilicus
Viscera are not covered by peritoneum or amnion

26

Clinical presentation of an omphalocoele/examphalos?

Persistence of physiological herniation
Covering of amnion

27

What has the worst survival rate? Omphalocoele or gastroschisis?

Omphalocoele

28

Why is omphalocoele different to an umbilical hernia?

In an omphalocoele, there is no covering of skin or subcutaneous tissue, just a covering of amnion

29

What does the hind gut give rise to?

Distal third of the transverse colon
Descending colon
Rectum
Superior part of anal canal
Epithelium of urinary bladder
