In non-gangrenous cases, only derotation may be performed in high-risk with a volvulus-preventing procedure, like mesosigmoidoplasty, sigmoidopexy, or mesocoloplasty followed by bowel preparation and elective resection with end to end anastomosis.
[6,7,8,9] In early pregnancy, Sigmoid Volvulus can be managed by lesser invasive procedures like sigmoidoscopic detorsion [8,10] or surgical intervention without colostomy like laparotomy and sigmoidopexy [7] or resection and primary anastomosis, though the problem is likely to recur.
