Objective: To study the feasibility and efficacy of US guided water enema (USWE) in hydrostatic reduction of acute intussusception in children who present early. Materials and Methods: Five children with "early" intussusception were subjected to USWE reduction. Results: Of the five patients who underwent this procedure, three had complete reduction of ileo-colic intussusception and two had near-complete reduction. Conclusion: USWE for childhood intussusception is safe and may be an effective alternative method in the non-operative management of intussusception.
