Colonoscopy is a frequently performed procedure used for colorectal cancer screening. Most frequent complication is colonic perforation and bleeding. Other visceral injuries are very rare, but injuries to the spleen and liver have been described. We report on 66-yr-old female who presented with abdominal pain after uneventful colonoscopy. Abdominal CT scan revealed a band at previous hysterectomy site and dilated small bowel suggesting strangulated loop. A broad based knowledge of the different complication is necessary to decrease the risk of associated morbidity and mortality.
Key Words: Colonoscopy; Small bowel obstruction
