Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction Symptoms, Causes and Treatment Information

What is Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-obstruction? (Definition)

(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)

According to Nationwide Children’s Hospital, chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) is a rare condition or disorder of gastrointestinal motility where coordinated contractions (peristalsis) in the intestinal tract become altered and inefficient. When this happens, nutritional requirements cannot be adequately met. Symptoms resemble those caused by a blockage, or obstruction, of the intestines or the bowel. However, the symptoms are actually due to nerve or muscle problems that affect the movement of food, fluid, and air through the intestines.
