Abstract:

Acute abdominal syndrome is a serious health problem that affects people of all ages and genders. The causes are varied, but the most common causes of acute abdomen are acute appendicitis, cholecystitis, pancreatitis and diverticulitis. Acute peritonitis is a cause of acute abdomen and can result from rupture of a hollow viscus or as a complication of inflammatory bowel disease or malignancy, tumor, inflammation, vascular occlusion or obstruction. Intra-abdominal adhesions can also cause such a problem and it has been explained that an omental band is thought to be the cause in about 3% of cases. In this case, an 80-year-old woman with no history of laparotomy or inflammatory bowel disease was found to have an acute abdomen. Ileus was diagnosed preoperatively, but the cause remained unknown until surgery. She had an omental - mesentery of the small bowel - which was released during this operation, which is a rare case and should be kept in mind in the presence of bowel obstruction without any explanation in the preoperative diagnosis.
