Rednet Moment Changde, February 14 (Correspondent Tang Junya) The Spring Festival should have been a happy time for family reunion, but Mr. Zhou, 53, was rushed to Xiangya Changde Hospital in the middle of the night because of sudden chest pain, abdominal pain accompanied by nausea and vomiting.After admission, a complete CT examination found that There were a large number of lumpy high-density shadows in Mr. Zhou’s stomach, just like his stomach was filled with stones, which surprised the doctor. The emergency diagnosis was abdominal pain and gastric retention.CT showed a stone mass in the patient’s stomach.It is understood that Mr Zhou used to be healthy, and there is no other medical history, the lump “stone” retention in the stomach, is the main cause of his chest and abdominal pain.So where do these “rocks” come from?After careful examination of the medical history, we learned that Mr. Zhou ate 6 “rice cakes” at one time two days before hospitalization, and all of them were “boxy”, without much chewing.One hour later, Mr. Zhou began to feel pain and discomfort in his chest and stomach. His symptoms became more and more severe, including paroxysms of chest and stomach cramps, accompanied by nausea and vomiting.Mr. Zhou’s family was so frightened that they sent him to the hospital overnight.After entering the emergency room, the heart and lung examination were completed and no abnormality was found.On the next day, the patient’s chest pain was improved and he still had a sense of grinding in the stomach. The gastroscopy was performed in the gastroenterology department, and a large amount of food retention was still observed in the stomach (after fasting for 24 hours). Abdominal CT indicated multiple high-density foci in the stomach, and Mr. Zhou was admitted to the gastroenterology department with “abdominal pain and gastric retention”.According to Mr. Zhou’s condition, the department of gastroenterology team of Xiangya Changde Hospital immediately gave him gastric protection and spasmolysis treatment to relieve his abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting symptoms, and gave lubricating gastrointestinal drugs to promote the discharge of “rice cake”.On the second day after admission, the patient passed “lumpy” stools with complete relief of symptoms.Painless gastroscopy was completed, and the stomach was clean without foreign bodies, but the gastric body and gastric antrum mucosa had hyperemia, edema and ulcer.After further treatment, Mr Zhou recovered and was discharged from hospital.According to Professor Zhang Guiying, director of the department of gastroenterology at Xiangya Changde Hospital, rice cakes, glutinous rice cakes and other foods are mostly made of glutinous rice mixed with other rice flour or food, which are sticky, soft and difficult to chew and digest.This kind of food bought on the market is more likely to add other food additives, eat too much, too fast or not chewed, easy to cause indigestion, gastrointestinal function is not good will even cause gastric retention, intestinal obstruction, etc..Indigestible “food clumps” retained in the gastrointestinal tract for a long time can also damage the gastrointestinal mucosa, resulting in mucosal congestion, edema and even ulcers.In recent 3 days, the department of Gastroenterology has received 4 cases of this kind of abdominal pain, including one case of incomplete intestinal obstruction.The department of Gastroenterology of Xiangya Changde Hospital would like to remind the general public that there are many traditional Chinese food during the Spring Festival, such as rice cake, glutinous rice cake, glutinous rice ball, rice cake and so on. It is not appropriate to eat more than one time. You should not eat too fast.Old people, children and gastrointestinal function is not good people should pay attention to eat less and eat slowly, children and swallowing masticatory dysfunction had better not eat, in case the whole swallow, cause foreign body blockage in the throat or into the respiratory tract to cause suffocation.
