Ascending Colon Intussusception due to a Adenocarcinoma (4 of 6)

Adenocarcinoma of the Ascending Colon
Radical surgical resection is the definitive treatment for
tumor-induced intussusception. Reduction of an
intussusception with suspected malignancy should be
avoided, since it can cause bowel perforation and tumor
cell dissemination. While resection has been assumed to
be the most appropriate treatment for intussusception of
the colon in adults, it is sometimes possible to reduce
intussusceptions by simple manipulation or by
compression. With total inversion, partial resection may
be necessary; however, when carcinoma is considered
peroperatively, an extended resection with lymph node
dissection should be performed.
