Although gastro-enterostomy was first performed in 1881, it was not until 1917,1 that is, thirty-seven years later, that the first case of retrograde intussusception of the jejunum was described as a complication of this operation. It probably was Baumann's2 article in 1919 with its report of two occurrences in the same patient which really aroused interest in the matter, for within three years eight additional cases were reported. Henschen,3 in 1927, before the fifty-first congress of German surgeons, presented a most complete summary of the knowledge to that time about ascending invaginations complicating stomach operations, and mentioned nearly every case that had previously been written up. Within the last few years many other instances have been reported until up to the present there are thirty-two cases on record, not counting the one we are about to report. The American literature has been particularly barren in this regard
