Özet

To analyse patients those admitted to our clinic due to perforation in duodenum. Fourteen patients those have been admitted to our center with perforation in duodenum between 1990 - 2014 analysed retrospectively. Ten patients (8M, 6F) those have been admitted to our clinic between 1990 - 2014 have a mean age of 6.2 years (25 days - 16 years). Two of cases admitted directly to our clinic and the rest referred from another hospitals. Mean time for appliance to our clinic was 3.2 days (1day - 1 week). Ulcer in duodenum was the cause of perforation in 10 cases while in 3 the cause was trauma and in 1 case was surgical complication of infantly persistant hyperinsulinism (IPHH). The case with hyperbilluribinemia after near total pancreatectomy due to IPHH had been explored and perforation in deuedenum diagnosed. Resection in first two parts of duodenum and pylor, choledochojejunostomy, gastrojejunostomy and jejunojejunostomy was performed. Primary repair was performed in the remaining patients. In one case with primary repair gastrostomy was performed, while in 9 cases omentoplasty were performed. In the follow-up 12 cases has no problems and doing well. Two patients died. Perforation in duedenum is a rare entity that pediatric surgeons should encounter and keep in mind. Primary repair (duodenoraphy +/- omentoplasty) is safe and reliable surgical treatment modality..
