Cases of colonic volvulus in children are infrequently described in the literature. Here we describe the case of three patients with colonic volvulus. The first patient was a 10-year-old girl with abdominal dilation and pain and no bowel movement for 48 h. Her abdominal X-ray showed the coffee bean sign adjacent to the diaphragm, which was compatible with a diagnosis of cecal volvulus. The second patient was a 4-year-old boy with a history of chronic constipation during the past year and with no bowel movement for 24 h...

Introduction: Sigmoid colon volvulus (SV) represents the most common etiology of antepartum gastrointestinal obstruction, with repetitive antepartum episodes rarely reported. Case Presentation: A 25-year-old multiparous patient with history of SV at 26 weeks in her previous pregnancy presented with recurrent episodes of SV at 32 0/7, 32 4/7, 37 0/7, and 38 1/7 weeks successfully managed with colonoscopic decompression. Labor was successfully induced at 38 4/7 weeks, and she experienced two further episodes on postpartum days #1 and #32 also treated with colonoscopic decompression, followed by laparoscopic resection...

BACKGROUND Sigmoid volvulus (SV) is a life-threatening condition occasionally seen in adults. Adult Hirschsprung's disease (HD)-related SV is rarely complicated by difficult-to-control hypertension. In this report we present the case of an elderly man with a rare constellation of HD, SV, and refractory hypertension. CASE REPORT An 82-year-old man had long-term constipation, moderate abdominal pain, and progressive abdominal distension. A CT scan revealed the typical "coffee bean sign". Blood pressure was abnormal high...

A healthy 72-year-old Danish male presenting with recurring sigmoid volvulus was found to be infested with Schistosoma mansoni . No other explanation for recurring volvulus was found. A travel history 12 years ago, which included bathing in the Botswana Okavango delta for 10 minutes, revealed the likely time and place of infection. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of recurrent sigmoid volvulus and chronic intestinal schistosomiasis in a patient from a nonendemic area.

We report a case of a 79-year-old gentleman who presented to the emergency department with a 5-day history of abdominal pain, constipation, a progressively distending abdomen and new onset feculent vomiting on a background of a recent endoscopic decompression of a sigmoid volvulus. Investigations confirmed the presence of a recurrent sigmoid volvulus. Attempts to reduce this endoscopically failed and laparotomy with sub-total colectomy and ileostomy formation was performed. Histology from the resected specimen identified a distinct pathology, namely intestinal lipofuscinosis also known as brown bowel syndrome...

Sigmoid volvulus is an extremely rare cause of abdominal pain in children. More commonly seen in older adults, an SV occurs when a redundant loop of sigmoid wraps around its elongated, narrow mesentery causing obstruction and ischemia to the affected bowel segment. Children usually present with abdominal pain, nausea, and abdominal distension. Presentations may be acute or chronic with a history of episodic constipation or abdominal distension. The treatment plan includes an initial reduction of the volvulus via sigmoidoscopy with rectal biopsy to rule out Hirschsprung disease; however, operative management to remove the dilated sigmoid colon may be required in the setting of recurrence or confirmed Hirschsprung disease...

BACKGROUND: Sigmoid volvulus is an uncommon cause of bowel obstruction that is historically associated with high morbidity and mortality. The objective of this study was to evaluate contemporary management of sigmoid volvulus and the safety of primary anastomosis in patients with sigmoid volvulus. METHODS: The National Surgical Quality Improvement Project from 2012 to 2015 was queried for patients with colonic volvulus who underwent left-sided colonic resection...

REVIEW
Dennis Raahave
The objective of this review is to examine whether a redundant colon gives rise to symptoms like constipation and volvulus. In 1820, Monterossi made drawings of colons with displacements and elongation of the colon found during autopsy. In 1912, Kienböeck first visualized a redundant colon using bismuth, and Lardennois and Auborg named the anatomic variant dolichocolon in 1914. The criteria were later: A sigmoid loop rising over the line between the iliac crests, a transverse colon below the same line and extra loops at the flexures...

Sigmoid volvulus (SV) is an unusual type of colonic obstruction, in which the sigmoid colon wraps around itself. As a rule, SV is decompressed via endoscopy in uncomplicated cases, while surgery is required in complicated cases. However, the recurrence rate following endoscopic detorsion is relatively high, with a relatively high mortality rate. Consequently, as a prophylactic procedure to prevent recurrence, elective surgery is suggested in some patients. Nevertheless, the selection criteria are open to questioning...

RATIONALE: Sigmoid volvulus (SV) is an exceptionally rare but potentially life-threatening condition in children. CHIEF COMPLAINT: Abdominal distention for 1 week. DIAGNOSES: Sigmoid volvulus. PATIENT CONCERNS: We present a case of a 12-year-old boy with mechanical ileus who was finally confirmed to have SV with the combination of abdominal plain film, sonography, and computed tomography (CT) with the finding of mesenteric artery rotation...

An 80-year-old woman was brought to our hospital in an ambulance because of signs of peritoneal irritation. Computed tomography revealed volvulus, sigmoid colon dilation, and free air and pneumatosis within the colonic and bowel wall. An emergency laparotomy was performed after the diagnosis of colonic perforation associated with volvulus or pneumatosis. Numerous gas-filled cysts, up to 10mm in diameter, were located in the resected bowel wall. The cells at the inner lining of the cysts tested positive for D2-40 immunoreactivity, seemingly originating from the lymphatic vessels...

The increasing number of refugees, migrants and international travelers influences the surgical spectrum of abdominal diseases. The aim of this review is to familiarize surgeons with specific diseases which are endemic in the patients' countries of origin and are likely to be diagnosed with increasing incidence in Germany. Low levels of hygiene in the countries of origin or refugee camps is associated with a high incidence of numerous infections, such as helminth infections, typhoid fever or amoebiasis, which if untreated can cause surgical emergencies...

Chilaiditi's sign is an anatomical alteration consisting of the transposition of the small intestine or colon between the liver and diaphragm that is asymptomatic and is usually an accidental radiological finding. The onset of Chilaiditi syndrome is accompanied by clinical symptoms and is even rarer. Moreover, the combination of sigmoid volvulus and Chilaiditi syndrome is extremely rare, with only 17 previous published cases, one of which occurred in a female patient.

PURPOSE: To investigate the possible relationships between sigmoid diverticula, the volume of the left lateral segment of the liver and sigmoid colon volvulus. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The presence of sigmoid diverticula was analyzed in 36 patients (24 men, 12 women; mean age, 70.77±19.86 [SD] years) with sigmoid volvulus (group 1). The volumes of left lateral segment of the liver (i.e., segments 2 and 3 and further referred to as liver 1), liver 2 (i.e., segments 1, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8), total liver volume and liver volume ratio (LVR) (i...

AIM: Sigmoid volvulus is a condition with a tendency to recur if treated conservatively. Little is known about the type or when to perform definitive surgery. The aim of this study was to review treatment, and asses the outcome, of sigmoid volvulus in adult patients treated at a Swedish university hospital. METHOD: The medical records of patients treated for sigmoid volvulus at Sahlgrenska University Hospital from January 2000 to September 2016 were reviewed retrospectively...

INTRODUCTION: Signs in radiology are usually based on many common objects or patterns that are easily recognizable in everyday life. The objective behind this association is to aid in the understanding and diagnosis of the disease process. These signs can be seen in different imaging modalities such as plain radiograph and computed tomography.
