Figure 5 Representative case of a 71-year-old female with diospyrobezoar-induced small bowel obstruction. A and B: Computed tomography (CT) planar scan image revealing oval bezoars inside the gastrointestinal anastomotic stoma and the distal end of the jejunal cavity; adjacent mesentery was slightly blurred; C: The right rear end of the uterine bottom with a small amount of seroperitoneum (white arrow); D: MPR image showing the shape of a bezoar and a linear envelope (solid arrow); E: Artery phase image displaying no thickening of the distal intestinal wall at the obstruction site but with significant enhancement; F: CTA image showing different mesenteric arteries (dotted arrow) that provide blood supply for the transitional zone and the distal end of the obstruction site.
