Small Bowel Obstruction: Utilizing the Gastrografin® Challenge - Podcast #52



In this podcast we discuss small bowel obstruction – a common problem that can be challenging to treat appropriately – with Dr. Martin Zielinski, Associate Professor of Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  Dr. Zielinski  discusses several aspects of small bowel obstruction: which patients need an operation?  Which will resolve with time?  How long should nonoperative management be attempted before taking a patient to surgery?  We also discuss how to utilize the Gastrografin® challenge into the clinical decision making process. The discussion is moderated by Dr. David Morris and Dr. Levi Procter.
