SEVERICHE B, Diego et al. Two Case Reports of Spontaneous Transverse Colon Volvulus. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2016, vol.31, n.1, pp.56-60. ISSN 0120-9957.

Transverse colon volvulus is rare due to the anatomic location which impedes twisting. In the literature of the world, there have been fewer than 100 documented cases. This article presents two cases of transverse colon volvulus. They were suspected because of clinical evidence, images were obtained, colonoscopic reduction was performed and the disorders were confirmed intraoperatively.

Keywords : Volvulus; transverse colon; colonoscopy; intestinal obstruction; abdominal pain.
