Abstract

In this study, two cases of retrograde intussusception of distal efferent limb into jejuno-jejunal anastomosis are presented. To the best of our knowledge, these are the first two cases of jejuno-jejunal retrograde intussusception without gastric resection and a predisposing lesion. Patients was 37 and 33 year old men who were admitted with epigastric pain and vomiting for 2 and 3 days. Patients had a history of non-resective gastric surgery 6 and 11 years before admission due to peptic ulcus. In first and second case, manual reduction, and segmental resection with end-to-end anastomosis were performed, respectively.
