|Issue Date:||25-Mar-2021||Date:||2021-03-25||Publication information:||BMJ Case Reports 2021; 14(3): e239882||Abstract:||A 53-year-old woman presented in the early hours of the morning with generalised abdominal pain and features of hypovolaemic shock, following a dilatation of an enterostomy stricture 12 hours prior. Dilatation of this stricture was indicated by ongoing dysphagia, which had been successfully dilated twice before without incident. Standard resuscitative measures and confirmation of the endoscopically-caused splenic injury by CT scan were followed promptly by a splenectomy to control ongoing blood loss. The strictured enterostomy was revised to mitigate further need for endoscopic dilatation. The patient recovered well and was discharged shortly after on a soft diet.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/26129||DOI:||10.1136/bcr-2020-239882||ORCID:||0000-0002-1286-3132
