OBJECTIVE: The management of complete adhesive small bowel obstruction (C-SBO) has traditionally been supported by the old adage “never let the sun rise or set on a complete SBO”. There may be a trend towards more aggressive non-operative management given the increased use of computed tomography (CT) or simply changes in practice patterns. We conducted a study to evaluate differences in predictors and outcomes of C-SBO versus partial SBO (P-SBO).
