Keywords: Acute colonic pseudo-obstruction | Neostigmine

Acute colonic pseudo-obstruction is managed with bolus neostigmine as shown in a recent prospective, double blind, placebo-controlled study. Parasympathetic stimulation with neostigmine leads to abdominal pain, salivation, and symptomatic bradycardia. We submit a more effective method may involve use of neostigmine infusion to reduce complications and improve efficacy.
