dc.description.abstractVolvulus of the cecum is an axial twist or folding of the bowel on its mesentery resulting in acute intestinal obstruction. The incidence of cecal volvulus during pregnancy has been reported in some centres to be between 1:2500 to 1:3500 deliveries. Colonic volvulus is the second most common cause of intestinal obstruction in pregnancy after adhesions and tends to occur prior to onset of labour.en
