  • Ileus

    The colonic distention may lead to perforation of the cecum, especially if the cecal diameter exceeds 12 cm.[] Note the massive dilatation of the colon, especially the right colon and cecum.[] The mortality rate for pseudo-obstruction is 50% if patients progress to ischemic necrosis and perforation.
