    ETIOLOGY. The most common cause of small bowel obstruction (SBO) is intra-abdominal adhesions following laparotomy; this accounts for about three fourths of all cases. 1, 2 Peritoneal adhesions are common after laparotomy and are exacerbated by intra-abdominal infection, the tissue ischemia attending wound closure (e.g., an anastomosis), external beam radiation, and the presence of foreign. Intestinal Obstruction: Complications. Some patients suffering from a partial or complete bowel obstruction may decide not to seek treatment, believing that the problem will solve itself. The truth is: intestinal obstruction is a serious condition and prolonged obstruction can cause serious complications, and possibly death.

      Total white blood cell count (WBC) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) levels were normal. The patient was managed conservatively with intravenous fluid the obstruction resolved after 2 days. A water soluble follow through contrast study was performed, which showed resolution of the intestinal obstruction. A loop of the intestine entering the centre of this ring may push the clubbed end of the process before it and so tie the knot, thus leading to obstruction. Again the diverticulum may surround the pedicle of an intestinal loop in such a way as to encircle it with a single knot (see Figs. 33, 34, 35).
