AbstractAbstract PDF
We report an unusual case of a sigmoid colon perforation after ventriculoperitoneal shunt surgery. Distal catheters are known to cause perforation in the setting of colonoscopy. The exact pathogenesis of this complication is not clear, but it can cause serious complications. Hence, patients require prompt and aggressive management, including laparotomy with bowel wall repair, catheter removal, and antibiotic therapy.
