Clinical decompensation is rare and recurrence is relatively low after an uncomplicated reduction of ileocolic intussusception, however, one in five children required hospital-level interventions after reduction.

Early recurrence of ileocolic intussusception after successful air enema reduction: incidence and predisposing factors

Early RICI is a relatively rare event that may not justify routine admission and long observation and the approach should be individual, based on the clinical picture.

Intussusception Management in Children: A 15-Year Experience in a Referral Center

Saline enema reduction presents the highest effectiveness, and should be considered the first-line treatment, in patients with ICI episodes treated at a single quaternary referral center from 2005 to 2019.

A Practice Guideline for Postreduction Management of Intussusception of Children in the Emergency Department.

Implementation of a practice guideline involving early feeding and discharge after reduction of intussusception resulted in a reduced LOS from reduction in the pediatric emergency department in the PED and was not associated with recurrence of int Mussusception.

Pediatric intussusception and early discharge after pneumatic reduction

Pneumatic reduction is a safe and effective method in pediatric intussusception and if one is confident about treatment success, patients can be discharged without a long observation period, which reduces time loss.



Management of childhood intussusception after reduction by enema.

Postreduction management of intussusception in a children's hospital emergency department.

The postreduction management of intussusception is variable at a tertiary care children's hospital and previously healthy patients who have undergone successful enema reductions are unlikely to have adverse outcomes.

Enema-Reduced Intussusception Management: Is Hospitalization Necessary?

Hospitalized children with enema-reduced intussusception required minimal interventions, had a low rate of signs and symptoms requiring further radiographic studies, and had no enema -reduced serious complications during hospitalization.

Intussusception in infants and children: feasibility of ambulatory management

Outpatient treatment of acute ileo-colic intussusception is secure and reduces costs but requires simultaneous adaptation of hospital funding to promote this trend.

Intussusception--current trends in management.

It is suggested that barium enema reduction should be the treatment of choice provided that there is an emergency service of a paediatric radiologist and the patient is adequately resuscitated, the only absolute contraindication being evidence of pneumatosis intestinalis or peritonitis.

Patterns of recurrence of intussusception in children: a 17-year review

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.

Recurrent intussusception. Risks and features.

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.
