A 42-YEAR-OLD man had 45% third degree burns to his chest and back. Three weeks later, while being treated for sepsis, he developed intolerance to tube feedings, persistent acidosis, and massive abdominal distention. The abdominal radiograph is shown in Figure 1. Operative findings demonstrated necrotic bowel that was folded on itself anteriorly, creating a proximal obstruction.
