Caecal volvulus: untwisting the mystery.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Mar 10;14(3). Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Department of Surgery and Cancer, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London, London, UK.

Caecal volvulus is an infrequent cause of acute surgical abdomen, where an abnormally mobile cecum twists on its own axis. It can lead to the development of closed-loop obstruction, small bowel ischaemia and perforation. Early recognition and prompt treatment is key; however, due to the rarity of this pathology, it is seldom listed as a differential diagnosis. Read More

Ileocolic vascular curvature: a new CT finding of cecal volvulus.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2020 10;45(10):3057-3064

Department of Radiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, 300 Pasteur Drive, Stanford, CA, 94305-5105, USA.

Purpose: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of a proposed new CT observation in cecal volvulus, marked hook-like curvature of ileocolic vessels termed "ileocolic vascular curvature."

Methods: Contrast-enhanced CT scans of 14 patients with diagnoses of cecal volvulus on original CT reports were compared with scans of 40 control patients with dilated cecum but no cecal volvulus on original CT reports, accrued consecutively from January, 2006 through July, 2017. Two independent blinded readers retrospectively evaluated scans for cecal dilatation, ileocolic vascular curvature and seven previously reported CT features of cecal volvulus. Read More
