Abstract

Bleeding from the small intestine may be difficult to diagnose, because of the organ's length and free intraperitoneal location. Although there is a variety of causes of intestinal bleeding, angiodysplasia is the most common. Several different tests can be used to identify the bleeding site preoperatively or intraoperatively, including enteroscopy.
