National Audit of Small Bowel Obstruction



NASBO is the National Audit of Small Bowel Obstruction. Emergency surgery and nutrition are two areas often neglected in the surgical literature. Laparotomy for small bowel obstruction accounted for 49% of all surgical interventions in the first NELA report. There is also heterogeneity in these patients, as some have clear indications for early intervention, others may be managed successfully with a conservative approach, and some may pass from the conservative to operative group.
