ABSTRACT: A prospective study of hydrostatic reduction of intussusception under ultrasound guidance was undertaken in the Department of Pediatric Surgery, Medical College, Trivandrum, to assess its diagnostic accuracy and therapeutic efficacy. Between February 1998 and March 1999, 50 cases of suspected intussusception were taken up for this study. Of the 50 cases, 10 had no evidence of intussusception and were discharged on the same day. Forty cases with intussusception were taken up for hydrostatic reduction under ultrasound guidance and in 32 cases complete reduction could be achieved(80 percent). The diagnostic accuracy was 100 percent and its confirmation in the totality of reduction was also 100 percent.
