Abstract

Point-of-care ultrasound has become of utmost importance in the management of critically ill patients, changing everyday clinical practice. With this case report, we highlight the role of abdominal ultrasound in the management of elderly patientswith gallstone ileus (a rare cause of intestinal obstructions caused by a cholecysto-duodenal fistula) and with contraindications for contrast-enhanced CT scan.
