Abstract. The article reflects the experience of the treatment of acute obstructive intestinal obstruction in patients with colorectal cancer. Surgical care was provided under oncological dispensary in 2 surgical departments of the same profile. When carrying out emergency operations as well as planned operations, all the principles of cancer treatment were taken into account, as in elective surgery. All the high quality standards were used in order to treat the patients with complicated intestinal obstructions. As per the standards, patients with intestinal obstructions are treated in two steps. In first, the tumor is resected with the formation of colostomy. In second step, the colostomy is reconstructed. Obtained, in our opinion, a satisfactory treatment outcome, despite the fact that most of the patients came in critical condition, with many days of acute intestinal obstruction, more than half of whom were over 70 years old.
