Cecal volvulus is second only to sigmoid volvulus in its frequency of occurrence. Diagnostic doubt is not uncommon in cecal volvulus; nonoperative decompression is rarely achievable; and if gangrene supervenes, mortality rises appreciably. Resection is mandatory for gangrene and a grossly distended, thin-walled cecum. Cecopexy and cecostomy seem less-effective and more morbid options than resection and anastomosis for viable bowel. However, their role needs reappraisal in the light of advances in minimally invasive techniques.
