Abstract

We experienced a case of detorsion of cecal volvulus by colonoscopic maneuver. An 83-years-old man who was confined to bed for cerebral infarction was admitted to our hospital complaing of abdominal distension and abdominal pain. Suspecting ileus of the colon, we performed a colonoscopy, we found the torsion of the cecum. Colonoscopic detorsion was successful. This is the first reported case of colonoscopic detorsion of cecal volvulus in Japanese literature.
