Paediatric patients presenting with documented colocolic
intussusceptions suggest a possibility of colonic polyp or other mass lesion in Mahmudloo et al.
Intussusception is categorized into subgroups such as enteroenteric, colocolic
, ileocolic, or ileocecal according to the affected bowel segments (2).
Barium studies in upper GI series show stacked coin or coiled spring sign due to edematous mucosal folds and a cup-shaped filling defect in barium enemas when evaluating colocolic
or ileocolic intussusception .
The meta-analysis included eight trials with different levels of anastomosis: two trials involved colocolic
anastomoses only; three comprised colorectal or coloanal anastomoses only; and three involved either colocolic
, colorectal, or coloanal anastomoses.
Another major classification is by anatomical location, such as enteroenteric, ileocolic, ileocecal, or colocolic
Leonardi, "Intestinal plasmacytoma causing colocolic
double intussusception in an adult dog," Journal of Small Animal Practice, vol.
Majority of the intussusceptions are ileocolic, while the remaining are of the ileoileal or the colocolic
The abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography scan revealed a left-sided colocolic
intussusception with a polyp as a lead point (Figure 1).
Proven cases of colocolic
intussusception were excluded from this study, as these are traditionally thought to occur secondary to a pathological lead point, mandating resection in our unit.
