Update on the global epidemiology of intussusception: a systematic review of incidence rates, age distributions and case-fatality ratios among children aged <5 years, before the introduction of rotavirus vaccination

Abstract:
Background In some countries that have introduced oral rotavirus vaccines, a small but elevated risk of intussusception—a rare bowel disorder—has been reported. Updated estimates on the global epidemiology of intussusception are needed to help predict the potential number of intussusception cases that could be caused by the vaccine in different settings.

Methods We estimated incidence rates, age distributions and case-fatality ratios (CFRs) for int... Expand abstract
