Conventional treatment of distal intestinal obstruction syndrome (DIOS) with high doses of pancreatic enzymes, mucolytic agents, and enemas is neither predictably effective nor rapid in action. In 6 cystic fibrosis patients with DIOS a balanced, non-absorbable intestinal lavage solution produced clinical and radiological improvement and striking improvement in DIOS scores. It is suggested that a balanced intestinal lavage solution should be considered as an alternative treatment for DIOS in patients with cystic fibrosis.
