Report of the National Audit of Small Bowel Obstruction

Published in Birmingham on Friday 1 December 2017

The Stephen Gordon Catto Charitable Trust is proud to have sponsored the National Audit of Small Bowel Obstruction (NASBO) through the Bowel Disease Research Foundation.

Small bowel obstruction is a common cause of hospital admission. Patients needing surgery face a significant risk of complications and death.

We know much less about those patients who are managed without surgery.
