Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Small bowel obstruction is slowly coming to be treated by laparoscopic surgery. There is no doubt that laparoscopic surgery will dramatically change the management of small bowel obstruction. I report an adult case of small bowel intussusception causing relapsing small bowel obstruction in which exploratory laparoscopy made an impressive change in the management and outcome.
