Colonoscopically guided tube decompression in Ogilvie's syndrome

, : Colonoscopically guided tube decompression in Ogilvie's syndrome. Diseases of the Colon and Rectum 34(8): 720-722

Ogilvie's syndrome (pseudo-obstruction of the colon) may result in gangrene and perforation of the colon if not effectively treated. Colonoscopic decompression and endoscopically guided rectal tube placement were employed to treat five patients with this syndrome who had failed medical therapy. All patients tolerated the procedure well and required no further treatment.
