Abstract :

Objectives: To compare the results of strictureplasty with resection and anastomosis in patients with obstruction of small intestine due to Tuberculosis (TB).
Study Design: A Case control study.
Place and duration: At the Surgical Unit-II of Nishtar Hospital, Multan for one-year duration from August 2019 to August 2020.
Methodology: Eighty (80) patients with intestinal obstruction due to tuberculosis spasms who underwent strictureplasty or resection and anastomosis were enrolled in the study. Data was collected on a proforma, and complications such as anastomotic leakage, wound infection, recurrent intestinal obstruction and postoperative stay were searched for.
Results: The results showed that there is no significant difference between the two procedures.
Conclusions: Both procedures were equally effective, but strictureplasty is superior to resection and anastomosis in the case of strictures and multiple strictures in order to maintain effective bowel length.
KEYWORDS: intestinal tuberculosis, Strictureplasty, resection and anastomosis, comparison

Results: Of the 735 infants admitted to the outpatient clinic due to colic, only 125 infants meeting Wessel’s criteria were enrolled in the study. Likewise, 125 subjects were also selected from an age-matched control group. Factors significantly associated with infantile colic have been found to include stress during pregnancy, delivery, breastfeeding, inappropriate feeding / belching techniques, GER, umbilical / inguinal hernia, and sleep disturbances. However, no statistically significant significance was found for the following factors, pregnancy disease, nutritional status, mode of delivery, educational status, maternal heart rate consumption, family socioeconomic status, parental age, birth weight, and stool frequency.
Conclusion: Reducing maternal stress during pregnancy, educating the mother in infant management for the first time, may be helpful in reducing the incidence of infant colic.
