Duodenal atresia notes and mnemonic

Duodenal atresia


In this post, I wanted to emphasize duodenal atresia is associated with double bubble sign.

It's common in Downs syndrome and polyhydramnios maybe seen in utero.

Bilious vomiting is seen because the obstruction is after the ampulla of Vater.

Because the child is vomiting, abdominal distension is not seen.

That's all!
I need sleep right now.
