Dr. Anuradha Mehta | Dr. R. P Reddy | Dr. G. A. Swami | Dr. Meghraj J. Chawda | Dr. G. L. Anmod [2]

Abstract: Intussusception due to Meckel?s diverticulum is an uncommon cause of intestinal obstruction. However, the surgeon should still be suspicious of this condition since the non - specific symptoms and the rarity of it make a preoperative diagnosis uncertain. Considering the secondary nature of intussusception and the necessity of early surgical intervention to avoid morbidity and mortality. It occurs when the Meckel?s diverticulum sags into the bowel lumen and then serves as a lead point to allow telescoping of the small intestine, first into the distal ileum and then in to the large intestine, causing ileo - ileal and ileocolic type of intussusceptions.
