On some occasions, the contrast fills the lumen in between the intussuscipiens and the intussusceptum
Gradual distension of the colon and the retrograde movement of the intussusceptum
towards the caecum were monitored by real-time ultrasound.
Additionally, a hypodense area which represents invaginated mesenteric fat is often apparent within the intussusceptum
At the end of the study period, records of documented cases were reviewed for age, gender, weight, duration of symptoms (DOS), CRP levels, presence of palpable intussusceptum
on rectal examination, serology results, radiological investigations including PR, surgical procedure and findings, and histological reports.
It was characterized by marked edema and congestion in the serosa of the intestine without necrosis or fibrin in both: in both: intussusceptum
portion and intussuscipiens segment.
STARR is advocated as a new technology for the treatment of obstructive defecation syndrome by excision of parts of intussusceptum
Surgery is the modality of treatment in patients presenting with shock, bowel perforation, generalised peritonitis, trans-anal prolapse of the intussusceptum
, or failed enema reduction.
When there is associated intussusception, the barium column is seen as a coiled spring appearance due to the outlining of mucosal folds of intussusceptum
Intussusception was reduced by manipulation and gentle traction of intussusceptum
and pressure on intussuscipiens.
The specimen consisted of a small intestinal segment with the intussusceptum
telescoping into the intussuscipiens.
When the intussusceptum
invaginates and pulls along the mesentery, there is compromise of venous return.
The multiple concentric layers of the target sign represent the intussusceptum
centrally, surrounded by its mesenteric fat and vasculature and finally encircled by the intussuscipiens.
