Abstract

Small bowel surgery is encountered frequently throughout general abdominal surgery due principally to the incidence of adhesive small bowel problems. This area is one of the most fundamental components of abdominal surgery, and a good command of small bowel surgery is essential for any abdominal surgeon. This chapter deals with the complications, risks, and consequences of a range of commonly performed small bowel surgical procedures. For information on other or associated abdominal procedures, refer to the relevant chapter or volume.
