Dr. B. Santhi [5] | Dr. S. Thirunavukkarasu [2] | Dr. Raman .V

Abstract: Background: Intestinal obstruction is one of the commonest surgical emergencies in all age groups. Mode of presentation is same in all but underlying cause varies in each age group. It can be mechanical (dynamic) or non mechanical (adynamic) according to the mode of obstruction. It is associated with a significant morbidity and mortality. Though intestinal obstruction can be diagnosed easily, the underlying cause except postoperative adhesions and external hernias are difficult to be diagnosed preoperatively. Due to advances in diagnostic and operative techniques along with postoperative intensive care, the mortality has now decreased from 60% to less than 10% over the last century.
