Small intestine The length of the small intestine varies from 10 to 33 feet (3–10m) in 78 The abdomen and pelvis different subjects; the average is some 24 feet (6 buy 500 mg chloramphenicol with mastercard. Resection of up to one- third or even half of the small intestine is compatible with a perfectly normal life, and survival has been reported with only 18in (45cm) of small intestine preserved. The mesentery of the small intestine has a 6in (15cm) origin from the posterior abdominal wall, which commences at the duodenojejunal junc- tion to the left of the 2nd lumbar vertebra, and passes obliquely down- wards to the right sacro-iliac joint; it contains the superior mesenteric vessels, the lymph nodes draining the small gut and autonomic nerve ﬁbres. The upper half of the small intestine is termed the jejunum, the remain- der is the ileum. There is no sharp distinction between the two and this division is a conventional one only. The bowel does, however, change its character from above downwards, the following points enabling the surgeon to determine the level of a loop of small intestine at operation. The ileum is supplied by shorter and more numerous terminal vessels arising from complete series of three, four or even ﬁve arcades (Fig. Large intestine The large intestine is subdivided, for descriptive purposes, into: •caecum with the appendix vermiformis; •ascending colon (5–8in (12–20cm)); •hepatic ﬂexure; •transverse colon (18in (45cm)); Fig. The gastrointestinal tract 79 •splenic ﬂexure; •descending colon (9–12in (22–30cm)); •sigmoid colon (5–30in (12–75cm), average 15in (37cm)); •rectum (5in (12cm)); •anal canal (1. The large bowel may vary considerably in length in different subjects; the average is approximately 5 feet (1. The colon (but not the appendix, caecum or rectum), bears characteris- tic fat-ﬁlled peritoneal tags called appendices epiploicae scattered over its surface. The colon and caecum (but not the appendix or rectum) are marked by the taeniae coli. These are three ﬂattened bands commencing at the base of the appendix and running the length of the large intestine to end at the rec- tosigmoid junction. They represent the great bulk of the longitudinal muscle of the large bowel; because the taeniae are about a foot shorter than the gut to which they are attached, the colon becomes condensed into its typical sacculated shape. These sacculations may be seen in a plain radi- ograph of the abdomen when the large bowel is distended and appear as incomplete septa projecting into the gas shadow.

Pain is minimum buy 250mg chloramphenicol amex, although point tenderness usually can be elicited over the acromioclavicular joint. The roentgenogram is negative ini- tially, but later it may show subperiosteal calcification about the dis- tal end of the clavicle. Roentgenograms reveal the clavicle riding higher than the acromion, but to an extent that is usually less than the width of the clavicle, even while downward stress is applied to the arm. Whenever an acromioclavicular-joint injury is suspected, stress roentgenograms of both shoulders with a 10- to 15-pound weight suspended from each wrist should be included in the work-up. Pain and tenderness are noted over the acromiocla- vicular joint and usually over the distal third of the clavicle and cora- coid process. Deformity is obvious, and the distal end of the clavicle is easily palpable and ballotable. On the roentgenogram, the distal end of the clavicle is above the superior surface of the acromion, and the distance between the clavicle and coracoid process is increased. Special mention should be made of posterior displacement of the distal end of the clavicle. The mechanism of injury is usually a direct blow on the distal end of the clavicle; however, the injury may result from a fall on the posterosuperior aspect of the shoulder. This condition frequently is missed because, even on stress roentgenograms, the clavicle may not show an upward displacement. The treatment of ªcompleteº acromioclavicular dislocations remains contro- versial. However, since the treatment for the majority of type IV, V, and VI injuries is operative, it seems reasonable and practical to remove them from all-inclusive type III category and to create an expanded, more accurate classification system. Type II A moderate force to the point of the shoulder is severe enough to rup- ture the ligaments of the acromioclavicular joint (Fig. The scapula may rotate medially, producing a widening of the acromioclavicular joint. There may be a slight, relative upward displacement of the distal end of the clavicle sec- ondary to a minor stretching of the coracoclavicular ligament.
