Intestinal pseudo-obstruction may be acute, occurring suddenly and lasting a short time, or it may be chronic, or long lasting. Acute colonic pseudo-obstruction, also called Ogilvie syndrome or acute colonic ileus, mostly affects older adults. May 21, · INTRODUCTION. Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIPO) is a rare, severe disease characterized by the failure of the intestinal tract to propel its contents which results in a clinical picture mimicking mechanical obstruction in the absence of any lesion occluding the gut. CIPO is one of the most important causes of chronic intestinal failure Cited by:
Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIPO) is a rare condition characterized by a severe impairment of gastrointestinal (GI) propulsion, which results in symptoms suggestive of partial or complete intestinal obstruction in the absence of any lesion restricting or occluding the intestinal. Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) is a rare disorder of gastrointestinal motility where coordinated contractions (peristalsis) in the intestinal tract become altered and inefficient. Motility is the term used to describe the contraction of muscles in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction. Intestinal pseudo-obstruction can occur in people of any age, but it occurs more often in children and older adults. Children can have a long-lasting form of the condition called chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP). CIP in children is usually present at birth.

Pseudo-obstruction may be acute or chronic and is characterized by the presence of dilation of the bowel on imaging. When there is evidence of chronic small intestinal motility disorder in the absence of bowel dilatation, the preferred term is chronic intestinal dysmotility. Intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a clinical syndrome caused by severe impairment in the ability of the intestines to push food through. It is characterized by the signs and symptoms of intestinal obstruction without any lesion in the intestinal lumen. Clinical features can include abdominal pain, nausea, severe distension, vomiting, dysphagia, diarrhea and constipation, depending upon the part of the gastrointestinal Specialty: Gastroenterology.
