Volvulus.

Surg Clin North Am 2018 Oct 31;98(5):973-993. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Division of Trauma, Emergency General Surgery and Critical Care Surgery, Department of General Surgery, University of Nebraska Medical Center, 983280 Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE 68198-3280, USA.

Intestinal volvulus, regardless of location, is a rare disease process, but one that requires high suspicion and timely diagnosis given the increased incidence of intestinal necrosis and potential mortality. Most patients with intestinal volvulus require some form of surgical intervention. However, over the last few decades, the work-up and management of intestinal volvulus has changed given constant advancements in technology and patient care. Read More

Cecal volvulus caused by internal herniation after roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery.

J Surg Case Rep 2018 Sep 11;2018(9):rjy241. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of Surgery, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA.

Cecal volvulus is the rotation of a mobile cecum resulting in a large bowel obstruction. We present the case of a 55-year-old female who underwent a roux-en-y gastric bypass in 2003 and presented to the emergency department with worsening abdominal pain, distention and obstipation. Roentgenogram demonstrated a 14 cm colon suggestive of sigmoid volvulus, but CT scan showed rectal contrast abruptly ending in the distal transverse colon, mesenteric swirling and a distended cecum, consistent with cecal, rather than sigmoid, volvulus.

Volvulus of the intestines may involve either the small bowel or colon. In the pediatric population, small bowel volvulus is more common, while in the adult population, colonic volvulus is more often seen. The two most common types of colonic volvulus include sigmoid and cecal volvulus. Read More

Service de chirurgie viscérale et digestive, centre hospitalier régional et universitaire, avenue de la Côte-de-Nacre, 14000 Caen, France.

Colonic volvulus is the third leading cause of colonic obstruction worldwide, occurring at two principal locations: the sigmoid colon and cecum. In Western countries, sigmoid volvulus preferentially affects elderly men whereas cecal volvulus affects younger women. Some risk factors, such as chronic constipation, high-fiber diet, frequent use of laxatives, personal past history of laparotomy and anatomic predispositions, are common to both locations. Read More

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%).

Diagnostic and therapeutic applications of water-immersion colonoscopy.

World J Gastroenterol 2015 Jun;21(21):6451-9

Shinya Sugimoto, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo 160-8582, Japan.

Colonoscopy techniques combining or replacing air insufflation with water infusion are becoming increasingly popular. They were originally designed to reduce colonic spasms, facilitate cecal intubation, and lower patient discomfort and the need for sedation. These maneuvers straighten the rectosigmoid colon and enable the colonoscope to be inserted deeply without causing looping of the colon. Read More

Gastrointestinal volvuli cause processes that manifest as acute abdomen. Volvuli are important not because they are common, but rather because their possible complications can be severe. All types of volvuli share a common pathophysiology, which consists of intestinal obstruction in a closed loop that results in ischemia. Read More

Cecal volvulus.

Indian J Surg 2012 Dec 14;74(6):476-9. Epub 2012 Mar 14.

Department of General Surgery, Umraniye Education and Research Hospital, Adem Yavuz Str, 34766 Umraniye, Istanbul Turkey.

A twisted loop of the bowel and its mesentery on a fixed point is known as volvulus and it may arise more frequently in the sigmoid colon and cecum. Cecal volvulus as an uncommon cause of acute intestinal obstruction is axial twist of the cecum, ascending colon and terminal ileum around their mesenteric pedicles. Although there are many different etiologic and predisposing factors for cecal volvulus, exact etiology is most likely multifactorial in presence of mobile cecum. Read More

Volvulus of the transverse colon continues to be a rare medical problem in the bibliographic medical revisions of large bowel obstructions (1%), being frequently excluded of the differential diagnosis. However it is associated with higher morbid-mortality than the commonest cecal and sigmoid volvulus, making urgent a rapid diagnostic and chirurgical intervention. The authors present a case of this entity emphasizing the imagiologic diagnostic aspects and a bibliographic revision. Read More

We report a case of recurrent abdominal pain due to intermittent caecal volvulus arising in a patient with mesenterium commune. Colonic enema, abdominal CT scan and virtual colonography with three-dimensional colonic reconstruction were useful for detecting this rare abnormal intestinal fixation. Although right hemicolectomy was indicated, we performed a wide colonic resection from the terminal ileum to the distal sigmoid because the patient's short mesentery made it impossible to perform an ileum-transverse anastomosis.

G Chir 2004 Jun-Jul;25(6-7):220-3

Dipartimento di Scienze Chirurgiche, Sezione di Chirurgia Generale, Università degli Studi di Cagliari.

Cecal volvulus is an uncommon cause of large-bowel obstruction. Its developement is due to an abnormal mobility of the ileocecal loop because of lacking attachement of ascending colon. Clinical features are frequently aspecific and should be differentiated from sigmoid volvulus and neoplastic obstruction. Read More

The management of cecal volvulus.

Dis Colon Rectum 2002 Feb;45(2):264-7

Department of Surgery, University of Natal, Durban, South Africa.

Cecal volvulus is second only to sigmoid volvulus in its frequency of occurrence. Diagnostic doubt is not uncommon in cecal volvulus; nonoperative decompression is rarely achievable; and if gangrene supervenes, mortality rises appreciably. Resection is mandatory for gangrene and a grossly distended, thin-walled cecum. Read More

Metformin retention independent of renal failure in intestinal occlusion.

Diabetes Metab 2001 Feb;27(1):24-8

Service d'Endocrinologie-Nutrition Hôpital Edouard Herriot, Lyon, France.

Metformin is eliminated by the kidneys, and metformin accumulation has always been noticed in oligo-anuric patients. We have reported an exception to the rule with the case of a metformin-treated patient having metformin accumulation contrasting with a mild increase in serum creatinine in the context of a volvulus of the sigmoid colon. This case prompted us to examine the association between intestinal occlusion and plasma metformin concentrations. Read More
