What Is Volvulus?
Volvulus is twisting of a loop(s) of bowel onto itself which effectively closes it thus preventing digested matter from passing and causing engorgement of the closed loop with gas and fluid.
Q: How does the bowel get untwisted?
A: This condition usually necessitates surgical correction although some do return to their proper position.
The danger is that there may develop necrosis of the twisted loop(s) in which case, if left untreated, death will ensue.
