Intestinal Compression or Obstruction

A minority of patients will present with obstruction of the second or third portion of the duodenum. Upper endoscopy and CT scan should be performed to rule out the presence of a neoplastic process. Then a loop gastrojejunostomy can be done to bypass the obstruction.

Obstruction of the colon (usually the transverse or splenic flexure) can also occur from chronic pancreatitis. If this is due to an episode of acute inflammation, the obstruction will likely resolve. If it persists, then a colonoscopy should be performed to rule out malignancy. Persistence of the obstruction requires a resection of the involved segment of colon and an end-to-end anastomosis.
