Ginecologia y Obstetricia de Mexico | Year: 2012

A minimally invasive approach for gynecologic procedures has become popular in recent years. Despite the advantages of this kind of surgery over open technique, laparoscopic hysterectomy is not free of complications. A case of small bowel obstruction secondary to incomplete torsion of proximal ileum ten days after an uneventful total laparoscopic hysterectomy is reported. Partial small bowel obstruction (PSBO) is a rare complication after gynecologic laparoscopy; its post-operatory incidence is 0.036% within a month after. A clean, adequate surgical technique, with minimal manipulation of internal organs, reduces the risk of adhesive process and PSBO.
