PMID:  8986995     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Intussusception is uncommon in infants with a colostomy. The authors present the first documented case of intussusception in an infant with a colostomy in which pneumatic reduction was achieved via the stomal opening. The inflated balloon of a Foley catheter was plugged against the stoma at skin level and a tight seal was obtained. Successful reduction was achieved without any adverse effects to the patient.
