Small bowel obstruction (SBO) is a very common condition, in the vast majority of cases caused by post-operative adhesions. It often requires surgical treatment. Traditionally, this consisted of a laparotomy, but nowadays a laparoscopic approach is also possible. This study discusses 24 cases of SBO and compares them with literature data. Successful complete laparoscopic treatment was feasible in 9 patients, while conversion to laparoscopically-assisted surgery or laparotomy was required for the others.
