I want to ask what kind of pyloric spasm is and whether this disease is dangerous

1 Answer:

Hello Zulaika, thank you for your question.

The pylorus is a part of the stomach that connects the stomach to the small intestine. When food is swallowed, the food is then digested and stored in the stomach, then slowly the stomach will contract so that food will enter the small intestine. In pyloric spasm, the pyloric segment of the stomach experiences muscle thickening. The result is a spasm or narrowing. Food from the stomach becomes difficult to enter the large intestine and is retained in the stomach.

This condition is rare, and generally occurs in infants with the same family history. Symptoms include:

Vomiting after eating Feeling hungry after vomiting Dehydration Difficult weight gain Constipation (difficult CHAPTER) Fussy child Abdominal pain accompanied by bloating This disease requires treatment with surgery. If left untreated, the child will become dehydrated and malnourished. You should consult this matter with the treating doctor. Follow the doctor's recommendations regarding how to eat and drink well, so as not to spit out food.

Hope this answer helps you. Regards.
