Intussusceptions occur primarily in dogs younger than 1 year of age and are most commonly found at the ileocecocolic junction. Intussusceptions may, however, occur at other locations within the gastrointestinal tract, including the gastroesophageal junction and pylorogastric region. Gastroesophageal and pylorogastric intussusceptions result in more acute, severe clinical signs than do intussusceptions within the small intestine. Radiographic studies, including contrast-enhanced and non–contrast… Expand

Predictors and Ultrasonographic Diagnosis of Intussusception in Children
TLDR
The development of improved scanner technology and high-resolution transducers has provided the clinician with image data of high temporal and spatial resolution, thus making it a useful tool in the diagnosis of small intestinal diseases. Expand
Retrograde jejunal intussusception in one year old cat after treatment with metoclopramide and menbutone
TLDR
It is described that possible cause of intussusception may be iatrogenic by application of prokinetic metoclopramide and choleretic menbutone given to an obstipated cat. Expand
Transient ileocolic intussusception in a dog with histiocytic ulcerative tiflocolitis: a case report
TLDR
The present study is the first reported case of a dog in which ileocolic intussusception and histiocytic ulcerative colitis appear to be associated, and this is also the first description of the involvement of the caecum in canine histi Cystic fibrosis. Expand
Acute gastroesophageal intussusception in a juvenile Australian shepherd dog: endoscopic treatment and long-term follow-up
TLDR
Endoscopic intervention is an effective, alternative in selected canine GEI- cases, allowing for rapid, minimally invasive confirmation of diagnosis and therapy, and long-term follow-up seems prudent even in asymptomatic patients. Expand
Clinical, Radiographic and Pathological Features of Persistent Gastroesophageal Intussusception in an Adult Dog: A Case Report
TLDR
Clinical, radiographic and pathological appearances of a persistent gastroesophageal intussusception in associated with idiopathic egaesophagus in an adult dog and histopathological results revealed tissue injury, circulatory disturbance and inflammatory reaction at dilated esophagus, affected lung and Intussuscepted organs. Expand
Intussuscepção intestinal secundária a parasitose por Ancylostoma spp. em um cão
TLDR
Hookworm can cause intussusception and the veterinarian should be aware of the diagnosis, the parasite cycle, environmental prevention techniques and clinical and surgical treatment and aspects of diagnosis, treatment and therapeutic complications. Expand
Clinical findings and outcomes of 153 dogs surgically treated for intestinal intussusceptions.
TLDR
Surgical treatment of intestinal intussusception was curative in most dogs, even when an underlying cause was not identified, and surgical complications were common, including a 14% risk of life-threatening short-term complications. Expand
Gastroesophageal intussusception in a 50-day-old German shepherd dog.
TLDR
Gastroesophageal intussusception should be considered in the differential diagnosis in dogs with progressive vomiting or regurgitation especially at the weaning time, especially in the case of a 50-day-old German Shepherd dog. Expand
Duodenogastric intussusception with concurrent gastric foreign body in a dog: a case report and literature review.
TLDR
This is the first reported case with a concurrent gastric foreign body and endoscopic visualization of the intussusception and the dog was discharged from the hospital 38 hrs after surgery, and was normal on follow-up 1 yr after surgery. Expand
Endoscopic diagnosis of a pylorogastric intussusception with spontaneous resolution.
TLDR
This case was significant as it was the first report of pylorogastric intussusception diagnosed using endoscopy, and will be useful for the veterinary endoscopist. Expand

TLDR
Recurrence of an intussusception was not related to either the bowel segment involved or whether a simple reduction, bowel resection, or intestinal plication was performed at the initial surgery. Expand
Ultrasonographic features of intestinal intussusception in 10 dogs.
TLDR
Abdominal ultrasonography enables accurate diagnosis of intestinal intussusception and is a useful method for searching for concurrent or predisposing lesions. Expand
Complications of enteroplication for the prevention of intussusception recurrence in dogs: 35 cases (1989-1999).
TLDR
Enteroplication may be associated with life-threatening complications in dogs, but the likelihood of a dog requiring a second surgical procedure following surgical correction of intussusception was not different between dogs that underwent enteroplication at the time of the initial surgery and dogs that did not. Expand
Bilateral incisional gastropexies for treatment of intermittent gastroesophageal intussusception in a puppy.
TLDR
Treatment consisted of bilateral incisional gastropexies attaching the gastric fundus and body to the left and right body walls, respectively, which appear to be useful for preventing recurrence of gastroesophageal intussusception in dogs. Expand
Recurrent intussusception. Risks and features.
TLDR
Recurrent intussusception cannot be predicted by presenting features or symptoms; operative reduction due to a failed reduction by a barium enema reduces the risk of RI; and patients with RI have fewer symptoms with a shorter duration. Expand
Enteroplication for the prevention of intussusception recurrence in dogs: 31 cases (1978-1992).
TLDR
Enteroplication did not cause any apparent adverse effects and decreased the probability of recurrence of intussusception in these dogs, and further recurrences were not seen in any of these dogs. Expand
Belt loop gastropexy in the management of gastroesophageal intussusception in a pup.
TLDR
Previous reports have indicated extremely high mortality for gastroesophageal intussusception, and resolution of megaesophagus in the dog is unusual. Expand
Foreign body intestinal perforation and intra-abdominal abscess formation as a complication of enteroplication in a dog
TLDR
There were no side effects of the allopurinol treatment, and the specific antibody titres of the dogs either decreased or remained unchanged during the long-term treatment of leishmaniasis. Expand
Patterns of recurrence of intussusception in children: a 17-year review
TLDR
Because of the high reduction rate of recurrences, lack of perforation and favourable long-term follow-up, it is recommended to recommend radiological reduction for recurrent INT. Expand
The use of butorphanol tartrate for the prevention of canine intussusception following renal transplantation.
TLDR
The results indicate that the use of butorphanol tartrate as part of a preanesthetic protocol is effective in preventing canine intestinal intussusception following renal autotransplantation. Expand
