Abstract

Acute colonic pseudo-obstruction (Ogilvie's syndrome) is a rare complication of surgery. Delayed recognition and treatment can lead to severe complications. Herein we describe two cases of Ogilvie's syndrome in patients following pelvic reconstructive surgery. Recognition of signs and symptoms of this rare postoperative complication is important for surgeons of the female pelvis to identify to avoid potentially serious sequela.
