Abstract

Intestinal volvulus, regardless of location, is a rare disease process, but one that requires high suspicion and timely diagnosis given the increased incidence of intestinal necrosis and potential mortality. Most patients with intestinal volvulus require some form of surgical intervention. However, over the last few decades, the work-up and management of intestinal volvulus has changed given constant advancements in technology and patient care. Most importantly, however, is recognizing the need for emergent versus more elective surgery because this influences the morbidity and mortality for the individual patient.
