fig0010: Plain films of the abdomen and chest demonstrating dilated central loops of small bowel without evidence of perforation.

Mentions: Routine blood tests were sent upon admission including full blood count, urea and electrolytes and a coagulation profile. These were monitored during the admission and remained within normal limits. Plain film of the abdomen showed marked dilatation of small bowel loops with an absence of air in the colon consistent with distal small bowel obstruction (Fig. 2). No pneumoperitoneum was evident.
