The Yangtze River Daily Da Wuhan Client November 17 (Reporter Qi Yan Correspondent Liu Shanshan) arrived at the meal without appetite. A woman ate hawthorn appetizing. However, she did not expect to have abdominal pain and discomfort after 3 days.The "stones" with big goose eggs.In the past week, Wuhan Central Hospital has treated 4 patients with gastric stones, mainly caused by an empty stomach or excessive consumption of hawthorn and persimmons.
Ms. Zhang, 54, who lives in Hankou, has a bad appetite a while ago. I heard that hawthorn can appetite and help digestion. So she bought a box of fresh hawthorn and ate a few "appetizers" before dinner.After eating for three consecutive days, Ms. Zhang faintly felt that her stomach was a little uncomfortable, and she began to intermittent stomach pain. She thought the forbearance had passed, but then her abdominal pain was unbearable. The family quickly sent her to Wuhan Central Hospital for treatment.The gastrointestinal physicians carefully checked and learned that she had eaten a lot of hawthorn in the past few days, and was initially considered as gastric stones.
Through the gastroscopy, it was found that there were two 6 cm stones in its stomach, which had a hard texture, and the stomach wall formed erosion.Due to the hard stomach, the doctor guided the patient to drink cola first to make the stones softened.Later, Huang Manling, deputy chief physician of the Department of Gastrointestinal Medicine, performed stone mounts under the endoscopy for Ms. Zhang. Under the gastroscopy, she used a trap to cut gastric stones to divide them into small pieces and finally discharge outside the body.After surgery, Ms. Zhang’s abdominal pain symptoms were obviously relieved.
Coincidentally, Mr. Yang, 40, bought two pounds of frosting hawthorn balls the day before yesterday. At night, he ate the hawthorn ball while watching the ball.The red hawthorn was wrapped in a thick layer of frosting outside, and the entrance was sweet and sour. He couldn’t stop as soon as he ate. He ate more than a dozen one. As a result, abdominal distension and abdominal pain appeared that night.In the early morning of the next day, when he was checked in the Department of Gastroenterology, the doctor judged that he was also a gastric stone caused by eating a lot of hawthorn.
Zhang Yan, director of the Department of Gastrointestinal Department of the hospital, introduced that every late autumn and early winter is the season when hawthorn and persimmons harvested, and there are more patients with gastric stones.The department received 4 patients with gastric stones a week.Some patients have a short occurrence of stomach stones and loose stomach stones. Doctors try to let patients drink cola to eliminate stones.Because cola contains carbon dioxide, phosphate and other ingredients, it may make plant -based gastric stones dissolved or softer, but patients with gastric stones such as gastric ulcers cannot use this method, if too much may cause perforation.Therefore, it must be carried out under the guidance of a doctor, and do not blindly drink Coca -Cocoa.
Experts remind that fruits such as hawthorn and persimmons contain a large amount of tannic acid and pectin. Under the action of gastric acid, it is condensed with food fiber to form gastric stones.Stones repeatedly rubbing gastric mucosa, which can easily cause inflammation, erosion, and ulcers.When stones cannot pass through the gastrointestinal and intestines, they may cause gastrointestinal retention and intestinal obstruction, which can cause intestinal perforation and endanger life.
Try not to eat a lot of foods containing tannic acid such as hawthorn, persimmons, black dates, etc., and do not eat with high -protein foods such as milk, fish, shrimp, crab.For example, if you eat hawthorn and persimmon, you should seek medical treatment in time when you have discomfort such as upper abdomen pain, abdominal distension, nausea, and vomiting.
