Metadata[+] Show full item record
The recurrence rate of intussusception in children is 10% to 11%. Approximately one-quarter reoccur in the first 24 to 72 hours and three-quarters reoccur within the first 6 months after the initial episode. Recurrence appears to be more common after hydrostatic repair (12.5%-14.5%) than after operative repair (0%- 8.2%). (SOR: A, based on cohort studies.)
