Background: Intussusception is a major cause of acute abdomen in childhood. Prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment of intussusception is of prime importance for preventing morbidity and mortality. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effectivity of ultrasound (USG)-guided hydrostatic reduction of intussusception with saline and to investigate the factors affecting the success of this method.
