Endoscopic Versus Surgical Intervention for Jejunal Bezoar Formation
Bezoar-induced small bowel obstruction is a rare entity, but it should be highly suspected in those with prior abdominal or bariatric surgery. The cornerstone of treatment for intestinal bezoars has been surgical exploration to relieve the obstruction. We present a patient with obstructive jejunal phytobezoar formation that was relieved via an endoscopic approach rather than a surgical modality.
