Intestinal strangulation


Strangulation is used in two senses:

  1. Squeezing the throat with an object (throttle, hand) – according to the mechanism, we distinguish between strangulation, hanging, suffocation. Asphyxia occurs, death occurs by suffocation.
  2. Nerve vascular constriction – causes non-bleeding and gangrene of the affected area (intestines).
Bowel constriction when entering a pathological cleft.
