Intussusception is a common emergency amongst children presenting with abdominal pain or obstruction and is often idiopathic in nature. It is much more rare in adults and is more commonly due to a pathologic lead point, including: polyps, meckel’s diverticulum or malignant lesions. We present a case of a 39-year-old female with features of a partial bowel obstruction from a colorectal intussusception from a large circumferential polyp unresectable by colonoscopy. A combination of endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques were used to reduce the pathologic lead point and resect the portion of diseased bowel as illustrated in the submitted video.
Utilization of endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques represents a novel approach to management of intussusception in adults and may be superior to previous forms of non-operative and operative management.
