Summary

Medical records of 31 dogs that had undergone surgery for correction of intussusception during a 14-year period were reviewed. Enteroplication was performed on 9 dogs during the initial surgery, and intussusception did not recur in any of these dogs. Intussusceptions recurred in 6 of 22 dogs without enteroplication. Five of these dogs had undergone resection of the primary lesion and anastomosis and 1 dog had undergone manual reduction of the intussusception. Intussusceptions recurred proximal to the initial lesion in 4 dogs, and at the same site in 2 dogs. Enteroplication was performed in 4 dogs following surgical correction of recurrence of an intussusception, and further recurrences were not seen in any of these dogs. Enteroplication did not cause any apparent adverse effects and decreased the probability of recurrence of intussusception in these dogs.
