Four months postradical lymphadenectomy and pelvic irradiation for Stage I teratocarcinoma of the testis, a patient was found to have an internal strangulated herniation of small bowel beneath the right iliac artery. The operative management is discussed, and the literature is reviewed concerning the etiology of small bowel obstruction in postoperative, irradiated patients and the techniques of peritoneal closure.
