Intussusception resemble to rectal prolapse and its surgical management in cats: Report of two cases

Deny Jennes

Two cats were presented to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, Mannuthy with a complaint of rectal prolapse from the past two days. The presented animals were weak and emaciated. A small sausage shaped structure could be palpated on abdominal palpation, and the animal exhibited pain on palpation. Due to the oedema of the prolapsed mass, it could not be reduced to a normal position. The ultrasonographic examination of the abdomen produced a target sign suggestive that the condition was intussusception. I decided to correct the condition surgically. Opened the abdominal cavity through the Linea alba and exteriorized the affected portion from the remaining segments. Manually reduced the affected portion under general anaesthesia. Closed the abdominal cavity and skin incision as per the standard manner. Animals were exhibited successful recovery.
