  • A case of flank pain caused by ureteral intussusception accompanied with ureteral polyp. [Journal Article]
    BMC Nephrol. 2020 Jul 01; 21(1):246.Dong Y, Zhang WD, … Han CH
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first report that describes polyp-related ureteral intussusception using comprehensive and representative ureteroscopic images and video. Our findings suggest that ureteroscopy is vital for diagnosis. Extensive biopsies through ureteroscopy are less invasive, and make it easier to exclude the presence of ureteral malignancies. Ureteroscopic resection of the whole polyp with its stalk and intussusceptum using Holmium: YAG laser did not seem viable in this case. However, cauterization of partial polyp tissues followed by open surgery for segmental resection of the ureter with reanastomosis is helpful in controlling such patient well-being.
  • Early Postendoscopic Transverse Colo-Colonic Intussusception. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Gastroenterol. 2020 Jan-Apr; 14(1):1-6.He H, Rambhujun V, … Vrabie R
  • Intussusception is defined as telescoping of the proximal bowel (intussusceptum) into the lumen of the distal bowel, otherwise called the intussuscipiens. While it is one of the most common causes of intestinal obstruction in children between the ages of 3 months and 6 years, intussusception accounts for about 1% of such cases in adults. Intussusception is idiopathic in 8-20% of patients and most…
  • Sigmoido-rectal intussusception. [Case Reports]
    SAGE Open Med Case Rep. 2019; 7:2050313X19856242.Filiberto AC, Loftus TJ, … Iqbal A

    Ann R Coll Surg Engl. 2018 Apr; 100(4):e91-e93.Kalliakmanis V, Perysinakis I, … Angelakis C
  • Intussusception is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction in adults and represents a diagnostic challenge for the surgeon. In the majority of cases, presenting symptoms are not specific, making preoperative diagnosis difficult. Several medical conditions may cause intestinal intussusception. We present the case of a 16-year-old female patient with intussusception due to a hamartomatous Peutz-Jegh…
  • Ileocecal intussusception extending to left colon due to endometriosis. [Case Reports]
    Ann R Coll Surg Engl. 2018 Mar; 100(3):e62-e63.Rodriguez-Lopez M, Bailon-Cuadrado M, … Tapia-Herrero A
  • Bowel involvement in endometriosis is uncommon and is most frequently located in the sigmoid colon and the rectum. We present a case in a 37-year-old woman of a cecal endometrioid mass complicated with an ileocolic intussusception which extended beyond the splenic colon flexure. Careful manual extraction allowed a reduction of the intussusceptum, followed by an oncological right hemicolectomy. Th…
  • Two Cases of Massively Prolapsed Patent Vitellointestinal Duct. [Case Reports]
    APSP J Case Rep. 2017 Mar-Apr; 8(2):12.Singh S, Chaubey D, … Singh G
  • Patent vitellointestinal duct (PVID) is a benign congrnital anomaly ususally presenting with fecal discharge from the umbilicus. In this report, we describe two cases of PVID presented with massive bowel prolapse through the PVID and signs of intestinal obstruction. Surgery revealed prolapse of the ileal intussusceptum through the PVID. Both of the babies were sucssesfully managed with surgery.
  • Intestinal Intussusception: Etiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment. [Review]
    Clin Colon Rectal Surg. 2017 Feb; 30(1):30-39.Marsicovetere P, Ivatury SJ, … Holubar SD
  • Intussusception is defined as the invagination of one segment of the bowel into an immediately adjacent segment of the bowel. Idiopathic ileocolic intussusception is the most common form in children and is typically managed with nonoperative reduction via pneumatic and/or hydrostatic enemas. In the adult population, intussusception is uncommon and occurs more often in the small intestine than in …
  • Bowel obstruction secondary to an ectopic pancreas in the small bowels: About 2 cases. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep. 2017; 31:72-74.Nasser HA, Sleiman YA, … Allouch M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Symptomatic ectopic pancreas is extremely rare. Symptoms may include, bleeding, intestinal occlusion and intussusception. Few similar cases have been reported in the literature, and the current ones are to be added.As mentioned above, ectopic pancreatic tissue rarely causes symptoms. We presented 2 cases that presented 2 possible complications secondary to this pathology. Both cases were managed successfully.
  • Clinical and Ultrasonographic Features of Secondary Intussusception in Children. [Journal Article]
    Eur Radiol. 2016 Dec; 26(12):4329-4338.Zhang Y, Dong Q, … Zheng LQ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ultrasound can be used as a feasible and effective method to discriminate PI from SI. Once the PLP is detected, a definite diagnosis can be made.• The clinical and ultrasonographic features were compared between SI and PI. • The age, location, diameter and length of intussusception, and intestinal dilation were distinguishing features. • The causes of SI were found to be polyps, intestinal duplication, lymphoma, and Meckel's diverticulum. • Ultrasound can be used as an important method to diagnose SI. • Demonstration and confirmation of PLP are vital to diagnosing SI.

    J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A. 2015 Sep; 25(9):763-6.Geltzeiler CB, Sims TL, Zigman AF
  • CONCLUSIONS: In cases of failed reduction by contrast enema, we have demonstrated LAHRI to be a successful treatment modality. The technique has the advantage of little to no bowel manipulation and has evolved into one performed via a single umbilical port.
  • Caecal tumor biopsy with a rigid sigmoidoscope - Ileorectal intussusception. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep. 2015; 12:1-3.Robertson CG, Due SL, … Yeow M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intussusceptions are rare in the adult population. They may not present with the classical triad of crampy abdominal pain, vomiting, and bloody stools and radiological imaging plays a key role in diagnosis. Intussusception in adults is usually secondary to malignancy and operative management needs to take into account the risk of upstaging the disease. In the face of pre-existing metastasis, preserving bowel length should be considered; however, there is no high level evidence to guide decision-making.Intussusception is a diagnosis that needs to be considered in the adult population. Diagnosis largely depends on radiological imaging, especially CT scanning. The operative management is variable and should be determined on a case by case basis.

  • Adult colocolic intussusception and literature review. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Gastroenterol. 2013; 7(3):381-7.Wilson A, Elias G, Dupiton R
  • Intussusception occurs when a proximal segment of the gastrointestinal tract, called intussusceptum, telescopes into the lumen of an adjacent segment, also known as intussuscipiens. Although common in early childhood, intussusceptions are very rare in the adult population. Most intussusceptions in adults are due to a lead point, which is an identifiable pathological abnormality, in opposition to …
  • Precipitous intussusception with anal protrusion and complete overt rectal prolapse presenting with intestinal obstruction and an associated rectal adenoma in a young man: a case report. [Case Reports]
    BMC Res Notes. 2013 Oct 05; 6:401.Ongom PA, Lukande RL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Rectal prolapse and intussusception are commonly childhood conditions. Rectal prolapse alone is commoner in the middle-aged and elderly; females in particular. The finding of this combined clinical entity in a young, adult male is therefore a unique condition with an unusual presentation. It is the first case of its kind reported in East Africa. It is also an example of an adenoma constituting a 'lead point' for an intussusception at the gastrointestinal tract's terminus. Even in the presence of a pre-existing adenoma, a relatively common lesion, other differential diagnoses acting as 'lead points' ought to be considered in perspective. This characteristic, along with other features described in this case, is useful knowledge for colorectal surgeons, general surgeons, gastrointestinal pathologists, and gastroenterologists given their involvement in the diagnosis and management of anorectal disease of peculiar presentation.
  • Retrograde jejunogastric intussusception with jejunojejunal intussusception (double telescoping). [Case Reports]
