Ileo-Sigmoid Knotting: A Rare Case Report of Intestinal Obstruction

Dr. Pradeep Pande | Dr. Kameshwar Singh | Dr. Antara Bhaduri | Dr. Nandu R S

Abstract: Ileo - sigmoid knotting is considered a rare variant of sigmoid volvulus, also known as compound volvulus or double volvulus, which is a rare surgical emergency causing intestinal obstruction. Principally, it is a closed double loop intestinal obstruction that involves the sigmoid and ileum. The mortality rate is very high in this rare but potentially fatal condition which progresses rapidly and frequently to cause gangrene of both the ileum and sigmoid colon, which triggers general peritonitis and septic shock. The aim of reporting this case is to increase understanding of this condition to promote earlier diagnosis.
