Key Study: Is Intussusception a Middle-of-the-Night Emergency?

Visit

Lampl BS, Glaab J, Ayyala RS, Kanchi R, Ruzal-Shapiro CB

Objectives: Intussusception is the most common abdominal emergency in pediatric patients aged 6 months to 3 years. There is often a delay in diagnosis, as the presentation can be confused for viral gastroenteritis. Given this scenario, we questioned the practice of performing emergency reductions in children during the night when minimal support staff are available. Pneumatic reduction is not a benign procedure, with the most significant risk being bowel perforation. We performed this analysis to determine whether it would be safe to delay reduction in these patients until normal working hours when more support staff are available.
