Intussusception Treatment with Ayurvedic Herbal Remedies

Overview

Intussusception is a serious medical emergency which results from the obstruction of the intestine, due to which food or fluid cannot pass through the intestine. In this condition, blood supply to the affected portion of the intestine gets cut off and causes perforation (a tear in the bowel), infection and loss of bowel tissue. The intestinal obstruction which marks the occurrence of Intussusception can be described as the telescoping (infolding or sliding) of a portion of the intestine within an adjacent portion. This condition mostly affects children aged between 3 months and 3 years it rarely affects children under 3 months, older children or adults. The condition can prove to be fatal if it is not treated in time.

intussusception

In Intussusception, the telescoping of the intestine (usually the small intestine) results from an abnormal growth (a polyp or a tumor) in the intestine. The abnormal growth, called lead point, is grabbed by the normal wave-like contractions of the intestine; and the lead point, along with the inside layer of the intestine, gets pulled into the bowel ahead of it. In most cases of Intussusception, the exact cause of the condition cannot be identified. However, most of the children affected by Intussusception generally develop the condition after a recent attack of gastroenteritis or stomach flu.

Risk Factors of Intussusception

Some of the known risk factors of Intussusception are :-

  • Age (the condition mostly affects young children below 3 years of age)
  • Sex (the risk of the condition is higher in boys as compared to girls)
  • Intestinal malrotation (abnormal formation of intestines at birth)
  • Past history of Intussusception
  • The Family history of Intussusception.

Symptoms of Intussusception

In the affected children, the most common symptom of the occurrence of Intussusception is an acute abdominal pain because of which they may suddenly start crying loudly and pull their knees to their chests. The episodes of abdominal pain mostly occur after every 15-20 minutes. However, as time passes, the painful episodes occur more frequently and also last much longer.

Besides abdominal pain, some of the other symptoms of Intussusception are :-

  • A lump/distention in the abdomen
  • Diarrhoea
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Dehydration
  • Tiredness and drowsiness
  • Vomiting up yellowish-green fluid
  • Bloody stools; or stools mixed with mucus.

In rare cases when adults are affected, the symptoms of Intussusception generally overlap with the symptoms of some other conditions and are thus difficult to identify. Nonetheless, the most common symptom of Intussusception in adults also is abdominal pain which comes and goes, along with vomiting and nausea.

Treatment of Intussusception

Intussusception is a condition which requires emergency medical care. When the doctors suspect that a child is suffering from Intussusception, they immediately send the child to the emergency room, where the intestinal blockages are spotted with the help of X-ray or an abdominal ultrasound. If damage to intestines is identified, the child is taken to the operating theatre straightaway to correct the bowel obstruction.Generally, two types of enemas an air enema or a barium enema are helpful in diagnosing as well as treating Intussusception in serious cases.
