[An unusual complication of perforated sigmoid diverticulitis: gas in the portal vein with miliary liver abscesses].
J Chir (Paris). 1993 May; 130(5):237-9.JC

Abstract

A patient presented with gas in the portal vein and miliary liver abscesses due to perforation of a sigmoid diverticulitis abscess. The outcome was favorable after surgical treatment. Gas in the portal vein, a sign of extreme seriousness, is generally the result of intestinal necrosis from ileo-mesenteric artery infarction, responsible for more than 75% of deaths. Diagnosis of this exceptional complication, suggested from a straight abdominal film, was confirmed by hepatic ultrasound and scan imaging. Urgent surgical intervention can hopefully, as in the present case, result in the patient's survival.
