The article reports on a link for mast cell involvement in human. It presents a clinical evidence to the period of postoperative ileus (POI) in patients with minimally invasive surgery. This shows the significant pathogenic role of manipulating bowel loops during surgery. The clinical condition of postoperative ileus is discussed.
