Abstract

Although intestinal intussusception is relatively common in children, in adults it remains a rare clinical entity. We report an emergency laparoscopy for an adult case of colonic intussusception caused by cecum adenoma. In the present case, owing to a successful reduction via laparoscopy, the extensive intussusception could be treated with a more limited resection (wedge resection) instead of an en-bloc wide resection (right hemicolectomy). Because of the theoretical risk of perforations which could lead to the seeding of tumor cells and microorganisms into the intra-abdominal cavity, most surgeons advocate an en-bloc resection without reduction. The experience gained from the present case suggests that laparoscopy may therefore be a useful diagnostic or therapeutic tool for selected cases of adult intussusception. The choice of using either a laparoscopic approach or an open approach depends on the clinical condition of a patient, the location and extent of intussusception, the possibility of underlying disease, and the availability of surgeons with sufficient laparoscopic expertise. Additional reports may help standardize the management of this uncommon disease.
