Transverse Colon Volvulus in Pediatric Patients

Transverse Colon Volvulus in Pediatric Patients Abstract • Only two cases of transverse colon volvulus in the pediatric age group are reported in the literature. We are reporting two additional cases. We suggest that predisposing abnormalities include a redundant transverse colon, an elongated mesocolon, and close attachment or lack of fixation of the proximal and distal parts of the transverse colon. Other intestinal abnormalities may occur later. (Arch Surg 111:90, 1976) References 1. Massot P, Laine JL: Volvulus du côlon transverse chez l'enfant . Ann Chir Infant 6:145-147, 1965. 2.
