-bubble appearance with no distal gas are characteristic of duodenal atresia (see the images below). Distal bowel gas indicates stenosis, incomplete membrane, or a hepatopancreatic ductal anomaly. Occasionally, a radiograph must be obtained with the patient in the erect or the decubitus position to delineate the duodenal component. If a combination of esophageal atresia and duodenal atresia is present, ultrasonography is preferred. [ ] Anteroposterior radiograph of the abdomen depicts the double (...) -bubble sign of duodenal atresia. Note the flattened acetabular angles and broadened ilia of a patient with trisomy 21. Lateral radiograph demonstrates the double-bubble sign of duodenal atresia. Anteroposterior projection of the chest and abdomen demonstrates the double-bubble sign of duodenal atresia in the abdomen, as well as a proximal dilated pouch (right arrow) resulting from esophageal atresia; this displaces the trachea (left arrow) toward the right side in the superior mediastinum

, septa, or gas bubbles in the pleural space (indicated in the first image below). Gas bubbles in the pleural space strongly suggest an empyema in the proper clinical context (ie, in the absence of recent thoracentesis). Lung windows can demonstrate pneumonia adjacent to the abnormal pleural collection. Soft-tissue windows can demonstrate a cause for the empyema, such as esophageal rupture or mediastinal surgery. With most empyemas, enhanced chest CT scans demonstrate the split-pleura sign (see (...) ; these are called complicated effusions.

With a third-degree injury, complete rupture of the sternoclavicular and costoclavicular ligaments permits the clavicle to completely dislocate from the manubrium.

The use of this tube has been associated with severe adverse reactions, such as esophageal rupture, asphyxiation, aspiration and mucosal ulceration. For this reason, its use should be considered only as a temporary measure in extreme circumstances. Virtually all causes of acute gynecological bleeding that cause hypovolemia (eg, ectopic pregnancy, placenta previa, abruptio placenta, ruptured cyst, miscarriage) require surgical intervention. Early (...) secondary to more definitive measures. H 2 blockers are relatively safe but have no proven benefit. Somatostatin and octreotide infusions have been shown to reduce gastrointestinal bleeding from varices and peptic ulcer disease.

646. Spontaneous perforation of the esophagus in a patient with achalasia. (Abstract)

Spontaneous perforation of the esophagus in a patient with achalasia. Esophageal perforation in achalasia is rare. The risk would mainly follow pneumatic dilatation, and spontaneous perforation has not been described. We report a case of spontaneous rupture of the midesophagus in a 56-year-old woman with treated achalasia in whom the perforation occurred during a meal and was not preceded by emesis. A gastrografin swallow confirmed extravasation of contrast medium from the esophagus (...) , and endoscopy revealed significant esophageal food stasis, consistent with achalasia, with a large tear in the midesophagus and gross mediastinal contamination. She subsequently underwent a three-stage esophagectomy with an uneventful recovery. Copyright © 2013 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
