In an 81-year-old woman acute colonic pseudo-obstruction occurred 3 days after operation for right femoral neck fracture. When conservative treatment failed, ultrasonographically guided percutaneous drainage of the caecum was performed to relieve progressive caecal dilatation. Bowel function was thereafter restored. The method may be a therapeutic option for acute colonic pseudo-obstruction in selected cases.
