During the operation, we noted a firm mass at the cecum; in addition, the appendix was partially intussuscepted (Figure C).
According to the type of intussuscepted loop, JGI is classified into three types: type I, antegrade or afferent loop intussusception; type II, retrograde or efferent loop intussusception; and type III, combined form, [5] Efferent loop JGI is seen in 80% of the cases as in the present case, while others account for the remaining 20%.
9] In the acute form, incarceration and strangulation of the intussuscepted loop causing acute severe epigastric pain, vomiting and subsequently, hematemesis generally occur.
The tissue were viable so intussuscepted part was corrected only by slow sliding of the telescoped portion of the intestine apart.
13) One less well-known sign that the authors have found to be predictive of intussusception is "ileization" of the right lower quadrant, ie, visualization of gas-filled small-bowel loops in the right lower quadrant, filling the "vacuum" left by the intussuscepted cecwn and ascending colon (Figure 7).
