Medical Case Review

      

    Objectives of the Presentation

    Participants should be able to:

    • Recognize factors contributing to an adverse outcome.
    • Study the case in relation to the 5 competency metrics (1. Working as part of interprofessional teams; 2. Delivering patient-centered care; 3. Practicing evidence-based medicine; 4. Focusing on quality improvement; 5: Using information technology.)
    • Recognize feedback or changes we can make.
        

      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. Stercoral colitis is an inflammatory process involving the colonic wall related to fecal impaction.

      2. Fecal impaction may lead to ischemic pressure necrosis and subsequent colonic perforation.

      3. In the appropriate clinical setting, the imaging findings that should prompt the radiologist to consider diagnosis are the presence of fecal impaction, focal colonic wall thickening, and adjacent stranding of fat.

      4. If fecal impaction is not promptly relieved, the condition can lead to colonic perforation, peritonitis and patient demise.
