In this episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Drs. Jennifer Lee and Peter Lu talk to Dr. Hayat Mousa about the most severe of gastrointestinal motility disorders -- pediatric intestinal pseudo-obstruction or PIPO. Although PIPO is a rare disorder, it is one that is important for all pediatric gastroenterologists to recognize. Dr. Mousa is Director of the GI Motility Center and a pediatric gastroenterologist at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
