[en] This retrospective study of 206 surgical colic cases shows the incidence of the different types of pathologies. The small intestine is concerned in 106 (51,5 %) cases with 102 (96 %) strangulation obstructions. The remaining 100 cases (48,5 %) are large intestine obstructions with 45 (45 %) strangulation obstructions. The global survival rate is of 51,5 %, of 42,2 % for small intestine and of 61 % for large intestine. A gravity and a shock score permit to define the prognosis before the decision for surgery. The incidence of the postoperative complications is higher (55,2 %) and the time for recovery is significantly longer for small intestinal pathologies than for large intestine affections. Shock and paralytic ileus are the most frequent complications accounting for 65 % of post operative mortalities. The survival rates are significantly different according to gravity and shock score. The time of recovery is also significantly different in function of the shock score. These findings show the importance of rapid diagnosis of the acute abdominal disease in order to improve the outcome.
