Intussusception is the most frequent cause of bowel obstruction in infants and toddlers. In this book, the symptoms and clinical findings of intussuception are discussed. The clinical guidelines for the management of intussuceptions in children are discussed as well.
Other chapters examine the diagnosis, etiology, pathophysiology and treatment modalities for both small bowel obstruction and intussusception of the small bowel, focusing on minimally invasive surgical options; the etiology of afferent loop obstruction; the treatment options for adhesive small bowel obstruction (SBO), a common complication typically caused by adhesions that form after abdominal surgery; a literature review of traditional medical treatment options and a discussion on the authors’ experiences in treating gynaecological cancer patients with non-malignant bowel obstruction using manual physical therapy.
