Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The study of small bowel disease is hampered by the organ length and shape. Malabsorption syndromes, small bowel bleeding, intestinal obstruction are analyzed with reference to the clinical characteristics and present laboratory and instrumental tests used in diagnosis. The introduction of sophisticated diagnostic imaging procedures, both endoscopic and radiologic have contributed to a better understanding of the symptomatic patterns.
