Abstract :

Intestinal obstructions amongst neonates are almost always congenital. Bilious vomitings, abdominal distension and failure to pass meconium are the few important signs for diagnosing intestinal obstruction. Four common causes of intestinal obstruction which we found in our study included intestinal atresia, hirschsprung’s disease, malrotation and meconium ileus. However in resource constrain countries the perinatal and neonatal mortality rate remains high. For practical purposes we can even divide the causes of intestinal obstruction in high and low gastrointestinal obstruction depending at the level of obstruction. Our study was cross sectional including 250 patients over a period of one year. Mortality is reported to be high in under developed countries and less in developed counties as most of the anomalies can be picked up during pregnancy on fetal wellbeing scan. However our study highlights the ratio of multiple diseases as well as their presentation and at the same time highlights the importance of neonatal intensive care facilities.
