Telescoping of proximal bowel (intussuscipiens) into an adjacent distal segment (intussusceptum
)) is demonstrated by black triangles and smaller white triangles respectively.
segment was manually reduced from the transverse colon which was the intussuscipiens segment.
and intussucipiens were separated by manual milking of intestinal loops from one side and at the same time other end was pushed inside through the rectum using round ended SS rod having 1cm diameter.
Intussusception is the telescoping or invagination of the proximal part of the gastrointestinal tract (intussusceptum
) into an adjacent section (intussuscipiens).
In the sagittal plane, the shape of the intussusceptum
resembles a pseudokidney (Figure 1) .
An intussusception is an invagination of one segment (intussusceptum
) of intestine into another (intussuscipiens).
Intussusception is the invagination of a bowel loop with its mesenteric fold (intussusceptum
) into the lumen of a contiguous portion of bowel (intussuscepiens) as a result of peristalsis.
An intussusception is the invagination of one intestinal segment "intussusceptum
" into the lumen of an adjacent segment "intussuscipiens." (7) There is potential for an intussusception to occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract, and despite tending to be solitary, cases of multiple intussusception have been reported in poultry.
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
. Delorme operation is a known method for the treatment of rectal prolapsed in which mucosa of prolapsing segment is removed and rectal muscle wall plicated.
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.
