The high mortality following the resection of gangrenous or irreducible intussusception in infants and young children furnishes sufficient reason for a determined and continuous effort to attain an optimal technic. For the treatment of such a lesion a great many surgical methods have been employed. They may be briefly noted as: (1) resection with lateral or end to end anastomosis; (2) resection with double enterostomy (von Mikulicz,1) Paul,2 Hartmann3); (3) resection of the intussusceptum through an incision in the intussuscipiens, with or without lateral anastomosis (Barker,4 Jessett,5 Maunsell,6 Coffey7); (4) lateral anastomosis about the lesion with secondary resection; (5) ileostomy with secondary resection; (6) lateral anastomosis about the lesion with secondary sloughing or healing (Rutherford,8 Parry,9 Montgomery and Mussil10); (7) enterectomy of the base of invagination or simple suture after mesenteric ligation, followed by spontaneous sloughing (Oderfeldt,11 Capelle12
