Treatment for Cecal Volvulus in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies

Cecal volvulus is a disease that is related to the intestines. Intestines are the muscular hollow tube which extends from the lower end of the stomach to the anus. These intestines are also called bowels. The food particles then pass through the stomach to the intestines in the form of Chyme and further digestion and absorption take place. Intestines are divided into two sections called the small intestine and the large intestine. Volvulus is a condition when portions of the intestine get tangled upon a mesenteric axis. This tangled condition can cause impairment of the blood supply which further can result in complete or partial obstruction of the lumen. In this article, we will discuss the term cecal volvulus which is a type of Volvulus and its Ayurvedic management.

Cecal volvulus, Cecal bascule


Cecal volvulus is a rare condition in which a part of the intestine is entangled or a loop of the intestine twisted with itself and resulting in bowel obstruction. Cecal volvulus term is used to describe when the cecum (which is in between the small bowel and colon) twists on itself and detaches itself from the abdominal wall. This rare condition describes the torsion of the cecum which often results in obstruction. If this condition is unrecognized then it can result in intestinal perforation or fecal peritonitis. Usually, a person may mismatch this condition with normal stomach problems and often results in some complications.


In this condition, the terminal ileum and right colon are involved. It occurs when loose mesentery twists around an axis and it can occur when the cecum is untangled from a caudate to cephalad direction. Other possible causes are:

  • Weakened colon muscles
  • Hirschprung’s disease
  • Pelvic tumors
  • Infections
  • Violent coughing fits
  • Enlargement of the colon


A person may experience the following symptoms due to this disease:

  • Abdominal distension
  • Constipation
  • Flatulence
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Bilious vomiting
  • Ischemia to the affected portion


After a thorough physical examination, the doctor will advise you to do some imaging tests to diagnose this disease. Commonly abdominal X-ray should be done to confirm the volvulus. In this imaging technique, there is an appearance of a bent inner tube sign or a coffee bean sign and in case if there is a doubt to diagnose this condition then a barium enema may be done. There is an appearance of Bird’s beak at the point where there is a volvulus of the cecum.


The only treatment of choice for this condition is surgery. The procedure is known as cecopexy. In this procedure, the cecum may be returned to its position and sutured in the right place.

But Surgery has its own side effects on the body. But don’t worry there is a wonderful solution for those who are not willing to go for surgery. But don’t worry you can use wonderful Ayurvedic herbal remedies for the treatment of this disease.
