into the food, where they break it down into its basic components so that it can be absorbed into the body. The duct coming from the pancreas joins with the bile duct then this common duct open into the duodenum through a small hole in the side of the intestine called the ampulla of Vater. Thus stones coming down from the gall bladder can block off the pancreatic juices too. This can lead to a build-up of pressure in the pancreas, forcing the powerful pancreatic enzymes to leak into the abdominal cavity. When this happens the juices digest normal tissues instead of the food they are intended for. This causes the severe pain of acute pancreatitis, and serious illness and even death can result.

Rational investigation of upper abdominal pain

Rational investigation of upper abdominal pain

Other causes Acute severe pain can be caused by diseases of the aorta – dissection or ruptured aneurysm – which need to be excluded in patients with vascular disease or if signs of shock are present, especially if the pain radiates to or originates from the back. Other causes of severe pain include perforated duodenum, mesenteric ischaemia and acute intestinal obstruction; suspicion of any of these requires prompt hospitalisation. Heart and lung diseases, including acute myocardial ischaemia, pericarditis, lower lobe pneumonia and pleurisy, should always be considered, and depending on the individual’s risk profile, an electrocardiogram (ECG), cardiac enzymes and chest X-ray, also looking for free subdiaphragmatic air, should be obtained. Plain abdominal X-ray is often unhelpful in the investigation of UAP but may be used to look for faecal overload, perforated viscus, or intestinal obstruction, for which the sensitivity lies in the order of 50–60%.

eyes or in those who are more sensitive to tetracaine solution. In addition, we assessed patients’ preference between cold and room temperature tetracaine and found that most of the patients preferred cold to room temperature tetracaine and some patients found no difference between the two solutions (45.5% vs 31.8% vs 22.7%, respectively). Thus, we believe that the difference might have clinical significance, and cold solution could be beneficial in many patients who suffer from this common side effect of tetracaine. Moreover, different cultural backgrounds of different study populations may also play some role. Thai people are usually much more considerate. It is quite unusual for Thai patients to complain or express their feeling to their physicians. They tend to express less pain or discomfort than what they actually feel when asked by medical personnel. Nevertheless, the benefit of cold tetracaine was observed even in patients with low VAS score as in our study. We expect that the benefit of using cold tetracaine might even be more substantial if used in patients with higher VAS score.

Abdominal Pain in the Elderly

Abdominal Pain in the Elderly

A Foley’s catheter may be inserted to monitor fluid resuscitation. Such patients are usually kept starving (nothing by mouth) till surgical cause is ruled out. Nasogastric tube is placed in patients with suspected bowel obstruction, ileus, or upper gastro-intestinal bleed. In suspected biliary tract disease, dicyclomine may be administered for pain. NSAIDs should be administered with caution to elderly patients. In patients with undifferentiated abdominal pain, IV morphine is safe in doses of 2-4 mg; once biliary disease is ruled out (morphine causes spasm of the sphincter of Oddi). Meperidine causes less spasm of sphincter of Oddi, and is the opioid of choice in biliary tract disease. Rapid investigations should be carried out to confirm or rule out acute life threatening illnesses e.g. pneumonia, acute myocardial infarction, diabetic ketoacidosis, ruptured AAA, gut perforation and specific medical or surgical intervention should be carried out. Empirical antibiotics should be started in patients with suspected sepsis, pneumonia, cholecystitis, appendicitis, diverticulitis, or perforated viscus.

Abdominal Pain in Children

Abdominal Pain in Children

Plain abdominal films should be obtained when obstruction is suspected. A paucity of air in the abdomen is the most common finding in young children with bowel obstruction. Distended loops of bowel may be seen; however, smooth bowel walls are more common than distended bowel in small children. Multiple air–fluid levels also are seen commonly with small bowel obstruction. In later presentations, the bowel may resemble a tangle of hoses or sausages. An upright or lateral decubitus film will help to determine whether free air is present, caused by perforation. Further study with ultrasonography, CT, an upper-GI series, or an enema should be performed when there is suspicion of underlying pathologies such as appendicitis, midgut volvulus, and intussusception.

A Newborn With Abdominal Pain

A Newborn With Abdominal Pain

On ultrasound, the appendix is usually found after first localizing the cecum. This case was difficult because the appendix was nestled in the right upper quadrant near the inferior edge of the liver, adjacent to the lower pole of the kidney (Fig 2). One of the advantages to ultrasound is the dynamic element during imaging, which improves its utility in an age group that is otherwise unreliable on physical examination. 3 This child, for example, cried immediately with attempts to compress his appendix. The ultrasound revealed an appendix that was enlarged and fluid filled.

Abdominal Pain in Adults

Abdominal Pain in Adults

The best-test method involves elicitation of specific information that corre- lates well with the correct diagnosis. This method suggests that when a specific symptom or physical sign is noted, its presence is highly useful in establishing the correct diagnosis. For instance, the finding of pain in the right upper quad- rant (RUQ) most frequently suggests cholecystitis. Likewise, if pain is aggra- vated by movement, it most frequently indicates appendicitis but also suggests perforated peptic ulcer to a lesser degree. A best-test question used to differenti- ate the most common causes of abdominal pain—NSAP and appendicitis—is whether the pain is aggravated by coughing or movement. The pain of appendi- citis is aggravated by movement or coughing, whereas the pain of NSAP is not.

Efficacy of Post Operative Pain Management following Upper Abdominal Surgeries in Tertiary Care Centre

Efficacy of Post Operative Pain Management following Upper Abdominal Surgeries in Tertiary Care Centre

Although postoperative ileus is the result of a combination of inhibitory input from central and local factors, an increase in sympathetic efferent activity, such as from uncontrolled pain, may decrease gastrointestinal activity and delay return of gastrointestinal function. Control of the pathophysiologic processes associated with acute postoperative pain may attenuate the stress response, sympathetic outflow, and inhibitory spinal reflexes and contribute to improvements in morbidity, mortality, and patient-reported outcomes like improvement in patient’s quality of life and high level of patient satisfaction.

Modified Severity of Dyspepsia Assessment pain scale: a new tool for measuring upper abdominal pain in osteoarthritis patients taking NSAIDs

Modified Severity of Dyspepsia Assessment pain scale: a new tool for measuring upper abdominal pain in osteoarthritis patients taking NSAIDs

Dovepress Welle et al Another potential concern pertains to the reliability of the instrument. Although the mSODA pain scale was highly internally consistent, it could be argued that the items are, to a fault, “too” consistent. Indeed, future research may con- sider potential item redundancies that could lead to a more simplified form of the measure. Additionally, the assess- ment of test-retest reliability was problematic in the clinical trials as only one baseline (ie, preintervention) assessment of dyspepsia was available. Given this, a cohort of the trial patients with stable heartburn reports was used to examine reliability of the mSODA over time. However, it must be noted that heartburn is only moderately related to dyspepsia and is, therefore, a proxy cohort at best.

ABDOMINAL PAIN CHAPTER 14. John T. Boyle, MD ACUTE ABDOMINAL PAIN

ABDOMINAL PAIN CHAPTER 14. John T. Boyle, MD ACUTE ABDOMINAL PAIN

Sustained pain rises to a plateau of intensity over 5 to 20 minutes and gradually resolves over a 1- to 6-hour period. The patient tends to be restless, and the position does not help the pain. Pain lasting longer than 6 hours suggests acute cholecystitis. Cholecystitis implies an chemical inflammatory process within the gallbladder trig- gered by prolonged obstruction of the cystic duct. Referred pain to the dorsal lumbar back near the right scapula, nau- sea with some vomiting, and low-grade fever (< 101°F) are common. As inflammation worsens, the pain becomes more generalized in the upper abdomen and is increased by deep inspiration (Murphy sign: production of pain by deep inspiration or cough while the physician’s fingers are compressing the abdomen below the right costal margin in the midclavicular line) and jarring movements. A common bile duct stone should be considered if the patient is jaun- diced. Cholangitis should be suspected in a patient who has right upper quadrant pain, shaking chills, and a spik- ing fever greater than 102.5°F. A rigid abdomen or rebound tenderness suggests local perforation or gangrene of the gallbladder. Acute acalculous cholecystitis is acute inflam- mation of the gallbladder in the absence of stones. It is rare in children but has been associated with systemic illness or enteric infections. Acalculous cholecystitis should be included in the differential of a patient with the simultane- ous onset of high fever and pain symptoms suggesting bil- iary colic. Gallbladder hydrops, or acute noncalculous, noninflammatory distention of the gallbladder, has been associated with Kawasaki disease, Henoch-Schönlein pur- pura, and scarlet fever. In addition to right upper quadrant pain, the distended gallbladder may be palpated. Perihep- atitis is a complication of pelvic inflammatory disease in adolescent females that presents with severe right upper quadrant pain and tenderness produced by inflammation of the liver capsule. Fever may or may not be present. The syndrome has been associated with both Neisseria gonor- rhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis.

Chronic Abdominal Pain in Children

Chronic Abdominal Pain in Children

The physician also must decide whether to order diagnostic tests and, if so, which tests. The presence of alarm symptoms or signs suggests a higher pretest probability or prevalence of organic disease and may justify the performance of diagnostic tests. Alarm symptoms or signs include but are not limited to weight loss, deceleration of linear growth velocity, significant vomiting, chronic severe diarrhea, evi- dence of gastrointestinal blood loss, persistent right upper or right lower quadrant pain, unexplained fever, family history of inflammatory bowel disease, or abnormal or unexplained physical findings. The predictive value of blood tests, with or without alarm signals, has not been studied adequately. There is no evidence to suggest that the use of ultrasonographic examination of the abdomen and pelvis in the ab- sence of alarm symptoms has a significant yield of organic disease. There is little evidence to suggest that the use of endoscopy with biopsy or esophageal pH monitoring has a significant yield of organic disease in the absence of alarm symptoms.

central nervous system. 1 In a refinement of this theory, called the ‘hyperexcitability theory’, the referred pain occurs through cross connections between second order neurons supplying the different regions, but only when the input reaches a certain threshold. 2 The classic papers of Kellgren 3 and Feinstein 4 show common patterns of pain referral following irritation of thoracic and lumbar spinal somatic structures (Figure 1). Although these pain referral maps have been available to the medical community for over 50 years they are, we believe, still underutilised in clinical practice. Pain is referred outward and downward from its source, in predictable patterns, as far anteriorly as the anterolateral chest and abdomen. Moreover, the pain is usually felt as deep and dull, or aching, and is diffuse in its distribution. This differs from the sharp and burning pain felt in a well defined dermatomal distribution with irritation of a dorsal root ganglion.

3. Laboratory tests individualized to indication 4. Imaging studies individualized to indication. 5. Empiric intervention. In Chronic abdominal pain symptoms which are known to be associated with organic disease and referred as alarm symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea, unexplained fever, persistent right upper or right lower quadrant pain, weight loss and gastrointestinal blood loss. This condition has been greatly discussed and studied by paediatricians and medical gastroenterologists. Most of the published literature is from the medical colleagues. Available literature published by them has repeatedly mentioned functional gastrointestinal disorders as the cause of this pain, which includes non-ulcer dyspepsia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome or abdominal migraine. This being the case there has been debate regarding the need for evaluating these patients with laboratory tests and imaging studies.
