Sigmoid volvulus and Uterine Torsion complicating pregnancy
Sigmoid volvulus and uterine torsion complicating pregnancy are extremely rare. Only 73 cases of sigmoid volvulus and fewer cases of Uterus torsion were reported world-wide. We report here a case of both sigmoid volvulus and uterus torsion complicating pregnancy in a preterm pregnancy in a multi-parous patient. Both uterus and sigmoid were preserved, neither Hysterectomy nor sigmoid resection were done. The patient had a successful recovery, and invasive management was taken to reduce both maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality.
