Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Isolated fibrous gastric antral band in a neonate causing partial gastric obstruction and mimicking prepyloric antral web is not reported in the English literature, and we would like to report the first case. A premature neonate with feeding difficulties and bilious aspirate underwent upper gastrointestinal contrast examination. The upper gastrointestinal series showed a thin, radiolucent, circumferential band in the antrum with delayed gastric emptying. Radiographic diagnosis of prepyloric antral web with partial gastric obstruction was made. Intraoperatively, a circumferential fibrous cord was found in the muscle layer (tunica muscularis) of the antrum, which was completely divided. Clinically and radiographically, the 2 conditions could not be differentiated but require 2 separate surgical techniques for their management.
