[Bauhin's valve syndrome].Zentralbl Chir. 1982; 107(12):707-10.ZC
The syndrome of the ileocecal valve is a rare and rather unknown disease. Its clinical diagnosis is very difficult. The symptoms are those of the transient, periodic small bowel obstruction. Radiologic and endoscopic examination may be helpful, but a definitive diagnosis is obtained only by exploratory laparotomy. Surgical treatment of the ileocecal valve syndrome is the right hemicolectomy with subsequent terminoterminal ileo-colostomy.
