Bowel Obstruction


Phoenix Lawyers for Victims of Medical Malpractice Involving Bowel Obstruction

Bowel obstruction is an often painful condition which occurs when the contents of the intestines do not move forward.  It can be caused by a blockage resulting from cancer, inflammation, hard stool, or some other condition which prevents the bowel from working properly.  It is usually diagnosed with a CT scan or x-ray.

Bowel Obstruction Misdiagnosis

Most bowel obstructions when timely diagnosed can be treated with no long-term effects. Left untreated or misdiagnosed, however, bowel obstructions can lead to perforations in the intestine, necrosis (death) of the intestine, severe infection in the abdomen, and even death of the patient.
