Intestinal Polyps definition: Discrete abnormal tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the INTESTINE. A polyp is attached to the intestinal wall either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.
Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction definition: A type of ILEUS, a functional not mechanical obstruction of the INTESTINES. This syndrome is caused by a large number of disorders involving the smooth muscles (MUSCLE, SMOOTH) or the NERVOUS SYSTEM.

Small intestine definition: Organ with organ cavity which is continuous proximally with the stomach and distally with the large intestine. Examples: There is only one small intestine.
Intestine, Small definition: The portion of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT between the PYLORUS of the STOMACH and the ILEOCECAL VALVE of the LARGE INTESTINE. It is divisible into three portions: the DUODENUM, the JEJUNUM, and the ILEUM.

small intestine definition: The part of the digestive tract that is located between the stomach and the large intestine.
Small intestine definition: Organ with organ cavity which is continuous proximally with the stomach and distally with the large intestine. Examples: There is only one small intestine.
SMALL INTESTINE definition: The section of the intestines between the pylorus and cecum. The small intestine is approximately 20 feet long and consists of the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum. Its main function is to absorb nutrients from food as the food is transported to the large intestine. (NCI)

Ileus definition: A condition caused by the lack of intestinal PERISTALSIS or INTESTINAL MOTILITY without any mechanical obstruction. This interference of the flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS often leads to INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION. Ileus may be classified into postoperative, inflammatory, metabolic, neurogenic, and drug-induced.
Ileus definition: An obstruction of the intestines, especially the ileum.
