Aim: This study aimed to establish a new classification that will contribute to the treatment and prognosis of ileosigmoid knotting (ISK), which is a combination of ileum volvulus and sigmoid volvulus (SV). Materials and methods: Based on the SV classification in which criteria associated with mortality, such as age over 60 years and the presence of accompanying disease and/or shock, were used, and a new classification was made for ISK. For this classification, the records of 71 patients with…

Ileosigmoid knotting in the elderly: Outcomes of 32 cases over 44.5 years

Although the clinical features and diagnostic modalities are similar, ISK is generally present with high percentages of recurrent volvulus, comorbidity, late admission, and shock in elderly patients.

The Unusual Volvulus : A Five Year Retrospective Analysis of Nine Cases

In this study, ileostomy along with colorectal anastomosis seemed to be a better and safer alternative than primary repair in the management of ileosigmoid knotting.

Treatment for ileosigmoid knotting: a single-center experience of 74 patients

Investigation of the outcomes for patients undergoing various treatments for ISK found early and effective resuscitation followed by emergency surgery, including untying the knot, excising the gangrenous bowel segment, restoring intestinal continuity by primary anastomosis if possible, and preventing recurrence in selected patients.

Ileosigmoid knotting is the wrapping of the ileum or sigmoid colon around the base of the other one, causing a double-loop intestinal obstruction, and its prognosis is poor.

Ileosigmoid knotting: a rare case report with review of literature†

A case of 51-year-old male who presented with shock within 24 h of onset of symptoms and exploratory laparotomy revealed ISK causing gangrene of ileum and sigmoid colon, and end ileostomy was done after excising gangrenous segments.

Ileosigmoid Knot—Unveiling the Diagnostic Dilemma with Radiologic Signs: A Case Report

A case of a 27-year-old man who presented 2 days post-appendicectomy procedure with acute abdominal pain, abdominal distention, and hypovolemic shock is reported, which revealed ISK with gangrene of the ileal and large bowel loops.

Ileosigmoid Knotting – A Rare Case Report

As the condition was suspected early, active intervention was made which lead to better outcome in this patient and Ileosigmoid knotting should always be considered as differential diagnosis for acute intestinal obstruction in males.

A case of a 30year-old male patient who presented with ileosigmoid knot at the emergency room is presented to increase understanding of the condition to promote earlier diagnosis.

Ileosigmoid Knotting: A Case Series

Surgeons should consider ileosigmoid knotting in cases of acute abdomen, as it requires fast decision-making and intervention for a good prognosis and Definitive diagnosis is challenging due to its rarity.



Classification of Sigmoid Volvulus

Aim: The aim of this study was to establish a classification that will aid in the surgical treatment and prognosis of sigmoid volvulus (SV). Materials and Methods: The records of 420 patients with SV

Ileosigmoidal Knotting in Children: A Review of 9 Cases

Although resection with primary anastomosis is advised in gangrenous cases, stomas may be lifesaving in unstable patients, and definitive surgical procedures are generally used in nongangrenous Cases.

The ileosigmoid knot: New observations and changing trends

Primary anastomosis (ileoileal and/or colocolic) of resected gut seems to be a safe and better alternative in the management of ileosigmoid knot.

Sigmoid volvulus and ileosigmoid knotting in children

Six children with acute intestinal obstruction from sigmoid volvulus (SV) and ileosigmoid knotting (ISK) and one child with SV died following a wound infection.

Ileosigmoidal knotting is a rare but serious form of intestinal obstruction, its preoperative diagnosis is difficult and may present as an obstructive or nonobstructive emergency, and early and effective resuscitation, prompt surgical intervention selected on the basis of clinical and operative findings, and effective postoperative intensive care are the basis.

Aggressive resuscitation, prompt surgical relief of obstruction, appropriate antibiotics, accurate intra‐operative assessment of the viability of the involved loops of intestine and the use of modern postoperative intensive care will help reduce the mortality and morbidity associated with this life threatening condition.

Two cases of ileosigmoid knot: the youngest reported patient and CT findings.

A case of ileosigmoid knot is reported in which the patient was the youngest reported in the English literature, and it is shown that the computed tomography examination provided valuable information in both patients.
