Abstract

Clinical bottom line

The number of published primary papers on enteroplication as a preventative surgical procedure for recurrent intussusception is currently low with a relatively small number of cases reported in the studies. The studies did not demonstrate a statistical difference in the recurrence rate with or without the procedure although there was a consistent trend for a reduction in the recurrence rate with enteroplication.

Enterοplication has also been associated with severe complications, thus surgeοns must weigh the risk of recurrent intussusception against the risk of complications with enterοplication. More definitive conclusions cannot be made until higher quality evidence is available on the tοpic.
