Ogilvie Syndrome

Ogilvie syndrome can be a rare, diagnosed disorder characterized by seizures that affect autonomic dysfunction, rhythmic musical contraction (peristalsis) within the colon. Peristalsis distributes food and other nutrients to the digestive system through the interaction of body tissues, nerves and hormones. The colon is usually increased (dilated). Symptoms are very similar to other types of intestinal blockage and may include nausea, vomiting, bloating in the stomach or swelling and constipation. Symptoms of Ogilvie syndrome mimic those of mechanical contraction of the colon, but no such visible veins exist. Mechanical blockage refers to something (e.g., tumour, affected tissue, etc.) that prevents the passage of food and other alimentary canals. Ogilvie syndrome is related to mental disorders, trauma or surgery. Ogilvie syndrome can be managed with medication, but if it is unknown and untreated it can lead to serious, life-threatening problems. Symptoms and severity of Ogilvie syndrome can vary greatly from person to person. Ogilvie syndrome can cause serious, life-threatening complications. This problem usually occurs in patients in hospitals or in hospitals that are suffering from illness or who have recently had surgery. Some people have a history of chronic constipation, sometimes. Gastrointestinal bleeding usually develops over several days, but can develop rapidly within 24 hours. Colonic seizures can be severe.
