Reliability of color Doppler and power Doppler sonography in the evaluation of intussuscepted bowel viability

Published in Pediatric surgery international. 1998, vol. 13, no. 5-6, p. 360-2
Abstract In two similar cases of irreducible intussusception with wall necrosis and perforation, symptoms had begun 24 h before admission and the plain radiographs showed signs of small-bowel obstruction. The sonographic (US) appearances, however, were different: color Doppler (CD) US showed vascular flow in the intussuscepted bowel in one case and no flow in the other. After radio-clinical assessment, both children underwent surgery and an intestinal resection had to be performed, manual reduction being impossible. The reliability of the US findings and the prognostic value of CD and power Doppler US in determining the viability of the intussuscepted bowel are discussed with a review of the literature.
