Afternoon sorry I want to ask my brother just had a cesarean birth at 35 weeks after the baby was born turned out to be a leaky intestine condition. Actually what causes intestinal leakage in newborns?

1 Answer:

Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.


Intestinal leakage (perforation) in newborns born prematurely can be caused by several possibilities, which often include:

Necrotizing enterocolitis, which is inflammation associated with lack of oxygen in the delivery process with complications so that bacteria enter the intestine and cause damage to the intestinal tissue, usually characterized by a limp baby, the first stool mixed with blood
Anatomical disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, such as anorectal malformations, intestinal atresia
Hirshprung's disease, which is a congenital abnormality due to non-formation of intestinal innervation in certain segments of the intestine, is characterized by symptoms: failure of the baby's first discharge in the first 24 hours of life, fever, flatulence, green vomiting, fecal spray, foul smelling, and bleeding

This situation is an emergency that requires immediate medical attention. You are strongly advised to take your baby to a pediatrician to get treatment as early as possible. The doctor may provide therapy to deal with emergencies, antibiotics, nutritional care through infusions, and may plan surgery according to the indications found,
