Ileosigmoid knotting: One of the largest single-center series.

Pak J Med Sci 2018 May-Jun;34(3):671-675

Prof. Sabri Selcuk Atamanalp, MD. Department of General Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Ataturk University, Erzurum, Turkey.

Ileosigmoid knotting (ISK) is the wrapping of the ileum or sigmoid colon around the base of the other structure, causing a double-loop intestinal obstruction. The disease generally presents as an intestinal obstruction with volvulus triad, including abdominal pain/tenderness, distention, and obstipation. Abdominal X-ray findings are not pathognomonic, and computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are more useful in the diagnosis. Read More

Laparoscopic subtotal colectomy for synchronous triple colorectal cancer: A case report.

Oncol Lett 2016 Aug 29;12(2):1525-1528. Epub 2016 Jun 29.

Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Clinical Medical College of Yangzhou University, Subei People's Hospital of Jiangsu, Yangzhou, Jiangsu 225001, P.R. China.

Synchronous colorectal cancers refer to the simultaneous occurrence of multiple colorectal tumors in a single patient, excluding any metastases from other organs. At present, radical surgery is considered the standard curative treatment; however, individualized surgical strategies depend on tumor location, the depth of invasion and the general health of the patient. In the present study, the case of a 52-year-old man who presented with a 2-month history of abdominal pain that was accompanied by intermittent hematochezia and weight loss is reported. Read More

Imaging, Endoscopic and Genetic Assessment of Marfan Syndrome Presenting with Sigmoid Volvulus: A Review.

Cureus 2016 May 21;8(5):e619. Epub 2016 May 21.

Imaging Informatics, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA. ; Molecular Imaging, Cellsight Technologies, Inc., San Francisco, CA.

The Marfan syndrome (MFS) is a pleiotropic, autosomal dominant disorder of connective tissue with highly variable clinical manifestations. It primarily involves the skeletal, cardiovascular, and ocular systems; however, gastrointestinal complications are rare. Herein, we describe the case of a 31-year-old male who initially presented with acute abdominal pain for one day. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2016 May 26;2016. Epub 2016 May 26.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, Delhi, India.

Sigmoid volvulus is a rare and potentially life-threatening condition that is usually seen in adults, however, when diagnosed in children, it is often associated with Hirschsprung's disease (HD). We report a case of an 11-year-old boy who presented with a history of constipation since 1.5 months of age, with acute onset of severe abdominal pain and marked distention of the abdomen. Read More

A case of fatal sigmoid volvulus visualized on postmortem radiography: The importance of image optimization with multidetector computed tomography.

Leg Med (Tokyo) 2016 Mar 28;19:32-4. Epub 2016 Jan 28.

Department of Forensic Medicine, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, 2-1 Seiryo-machi, Sendai 980-8575, Japan.

This report describes the case of a man who developed fatal sigmoid volvulus that was identified on postmortem radiography before forensic autopsy. Postmortem radiography is useful for visualizing the body prior to autopsy. We discuss postmortem multidetector computed tomography that was tailored for optimum image quality to allow reconstruction of the fatal findings in multiple axes and in three dimensions, helping to pinpoint the anatomical sites of interest.

Sigmoid volvulus in a patient with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS): a rare occurrence.

BMJ Case Rep 2016 Mar 2;2016. Epub 2016 Mar 2.

Digestive Disease Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Mitochondrial diseases are rare and devastating, with a wide spectrum of clinical presentations and systemic symptoms. The majority of the published literature focuses on the neuromuscular manifestations and genetic components of this mitochondrial cytopathy, however, cardiac, renal, endocrine and gastrointestinal manifestations may also be present. The authors report a case detailing a 56-year-old woman's final hospitalisation from the gastrointestinal sequelae of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) (Co Q10 deficiency variant).

Synchronic volvulus of splenic flexure and caecum: a very rare cause of large bowel obstruction.

BMJ Case Rep 2016 Jan 18;2016. Epub 2016 Jan 18.

Department of Clinical Surgical Sciences, University of the West Indies, St Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago.

Colonic volvulus involving the caecum and splenic flexure of the colon is an extremely rare surgical entity and, as a result, it is rarely entertained as a differential diagnosis for large bowel obstruction. The most common site of volvulus is located at the sigmoid colon (75%) followed by caecum (22%). Rare sites of colonic volvulus include the transverse colon (about 2%) and splenic flexure (1-2%).
