Disorders of the small and large intestines encompass illnesses affecting these segments of the GI tract. These include, but are not limited to, duodenal ulcers, upper GI bleeding, short bowel syndrome, mesenteric ischemia, colonic ischemia, colorectal polyps, and colorectal cancer.
In this course, the student will be given a walkthrough of the most common disorders of the small and large intestines seen in clinical practice, as listed above.
For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have preliminary knowledge of the anatomy, histology, physiology, and pathology of the duodenum and the small and large intestines.
