Shift of a loop of a small bowel

Loops of a small bowel. Shift is characterized by change of a usual arrangement of lean and ileal guts, their pushing off to the left, to the right, down or up (fig. 1). At the same time loops of a small bowel are pulled together, it is from each other difficult to separate them, they represent one conglomerate or a ball of loops, each of which separately is not differentiated. Filling with a contrast agent more often uneven, in the form of separate inclusions. The relief is reconstructed, mobility is limited, contours in most cases indistinct.
