Suspecting Intussusception and Recurrence Risk Stratification Using Clinical Data and Plain Abdominal Radiographs.

Pediatr Gastroenterol Hepatol Nutr 2021 Mar 4;24(2):135-144. Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Department of Pediatrics, Korea University Ansan Hospital, Ansan, Korea.

Purpose: Although ultrasonography is the gold standard of diagnosing intussusception, plain abdomen radiograph (AXR) is often used to make differential diagnosis for pediatric patients with abdominal pain. In intussusception patients, we aimed to analyze the AXR and clinical data to determine the characteristics of early AXR findings associated with diagnosis of intussusception and recurrence after reduction.

Methods: Between January 2011 and June 2018, 446 patients diagnosed with intussusception based on International Classification of Diseases-10 code of K56. Read More

S Afr J Surg 2021 Mar;59(1):28d-28e

Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, Max Superspeciality Hospital, India.

Summary: Intussusception is a well-known complication of Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP).1 Diagnosis of intussusception is based on well-defined clinical and radiological features, but certain conditions can mimic intussusception, both clinically and radiologically, so closely as to result in unnecessary invasive procedures. Authors here present a case of HSP complicated by severe acute jejunitis, masquerading as jejuno-jejunal intussusception on ultrasound. Read More

Laparoscopic Resection of an Acute Rectosigmoid Intussusception Due to a Giant Pedunculated Lipoma.

Cureus 2021 Mar 10;13(3):e13798. Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, AUS.

Intussusception is the invagination and telescopic migration of a proximal segment of the gastrointestinal tract distally and is classically described in the paediatric age group, accounting for 95% of reported cases. Intussusception in adults is highly uncommon; its aetiology involves a wide spectrum of pathologies, namely, concerning malignancy and differing management pathways. In the management of adult intussusception, consideration must be given to the potential malignant nature of the lesion, as reducing a malignant segment could render dissemination. Read More

Applied Animal Morphophysiology Laboratory, Postgraduate Program in Animal Science, Federal Rural University do Semi-Árido, Mossoró, Rio Grande do Norte, 59625-900, Brazil.

Reports of intussusception in sea turtles are generally linked to marine debris ingestion; therefore, only a few cases of the disease are associated with parasitic infestations. The objective of this study was to describe the necropsy findings of the first reported case of colocolic intussusception in a green sea turtle Chelonia mydas, associated with the helminth Octangium sp. A juvenile female green sea turtle, which was registered and rescued by the team from the Cetaceans Project of Costa Branca, State University of Rio Grande do Norte, was examined. Read More

Ileo-ileal intussusception and gastrointestinal bleeding caused by incidental heterotopic pancreas: four case reports.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Feb;9(3):272

Division of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery, Department of Surgery, First Affiliated Hospital, School of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.
