Postoperative paralytic ileus is a common and uncomfortable complication after elective abdominal surgery and is considered inevitable. The incidence of postoperative paralytic ileus among patients who undergo pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy (PPL) as treatment for gynecologic malignancies has been estimated to be 10.6% to 50%.
