Ultrasound abdomen was performed which revealed a well circumscribed lesion adjacent to right kidney, measuring 63 x 49 mm, suggestive of an intussusception
is a common abdominal emergency among children aged less than 2 years.
Due to the inability of gastrografin enema to reduce the intussusception
and probable mass or polyp as lead point in this age group, he was taken for exploratory laparotomy where a small polyp was discovered as the likely etiology of intussusception
is defined as invagination of an intestinal segment with its mesentery as a result of peristalsis into the intestinal lumen.
etiology is not completely understood.
Retrograde gastric intussusceptions
after myotomy for achalasia.
By imaging, intussusception
can be divided into cases caused by a lead point versus non-lead point.
The small intestine intussusception
and colon intussusceptions
were induced by the adjacent big polyps in our case study.
Sometimes, small bowel melanoma presents with emergency clinical picture due to intestinal obstruction or intestinal intussusception
and rarely as bowel perforation .
In cases of colonic prolapse, by definition, an intestinal intussusception
An intraluminal tumor, submucosal edema or any process that causes dysrhythmic contractions may initiate intussusception
We simultaneously instituted a prospective observational study to assess our cohort of patients presenting with intussusception
and document the impact of our updated guidelines.
