Surgical or non-surgical? Enterotomy or resection and anastomosis? In this session, we will discuss how best to navigate the decision points along the way of diagnosing and treating the patient with suspected gastrointestinal obstruction. In addition, surgical techniques designed to effectively resolve the obstruction and minimize the risk of dehiscence will be covered. Special considerations for obstruction due to linear foreign body and intussusception will also be addressed.
