Abstract Objectives: Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIPO) is a rare, disabling disorder responsible for motility-related intestinal failure. Because it induces malnutrition, CIPO is a significant indication for home parenteral nutrition (HPN).Cited by: Nationwide survey on adult type chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction in surgical institutions in Japan.

Short bowel syndrome Intestinal pseudo-obstruction summary Background & aims: Chronic Intestinal Failure (CIF) is the long-lasting reduction of gut function, below the minimum necessary for the absorption of macronutrients and/or water and electrolytes, such that intravenous supplementation is required to maintain health and/or growth. Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a rare disease stemming from numerous causes characterized by disturbances in gastrointestinal motility. Symptomatology is often misleading and topography is variable, thus putting the clinician in serious strip-club.xyz by: 2.
Purpose of review. Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIPO) is the most severe and disabling form of gastrointestinal dysmotility characterized by an impairment of coordinated propulsive activity in the gastrointestinal tract mimicking mechanical intestinal obstruction. Over the last few years, major advances have been made in the diagnostic and therapeutic management of this rare disorder.
