Six topics in the problems of ileus are covered in this monograph: diagnosis and differential diagnosis, roentgen diagnosis, electrolyte disturbances, paralytic ileus, techniques and indications for decompression by tube (Miller-Abbott and Cantor), and surgical treatment. The text is entirely in German, but each chapter is summarized in English and French, as well as in German.
These papers were presented September 29 to October 1, 1960, in Zurich, at the twenty-fifth annual meeting of the Swiss Society of Gastroenterology, and the special meeting of the German Society of Gastroenterologia and Metabolic Diseases. A transcript of the discussion which followed these papers
