Treatment of resistant distal intestinal obstruction syndrome with a modified antegrade continence enema procedure

J Cyst Fibros. 2004 Dec;3(4):273-5. doi: 10.1016/j.jcf.2004.06.008.


We report a case of a patient with CF who had a long history of recurrent distal intestinal obstruction syndrome. She had been treated with conventional treatment including gastrografin, n-acetyl cysteine, Klean prep and Picolax. She underwent a modified antegrade continence enema procedure. She currently irrigates her conduit every 2-3 days. She has had no further symptoms of distal intestinal obstruction syndrome.
