Intussusception is the most common cause of acquired intestinal obstruction and requires emer- gency treatment. Recently, saline reduction under the ultrasound guidance has been successful as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool of intussusception. It is a simple, rapid, noninvasive, painless procedure without risk of radiation. We compared the result of saline reduction in 54 cases with that of barium reduction in 104 cases from January, 1988...
