Clinical presentation and diagnosis of sigmoid volvulus: Outcomes of 40-year and 859-patient experience The following article from the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, ‘Clinical presentation and diagnosis of sigmoid volvulus: outcomes of 40-year and 859-patient experience’, by S.S. Atamanalp, M.I. Yildirgan, M. Basoglu, D. Oren, B. Aydinli, A. Kargi & O. Onbas (doi: 10.1111/j.1440-1746.2007.04946.x), published online on 24 May 2007 in Wiley InterScience (http://www.interscience.wiley.com), has been retracted by agreement between the authors, the journal Editor-in-Chief, Professor Geoff Farrell, and John Wiley & Sons. The retraction has been agreed due to significant areas of overlap with an article published previously in Diseases of the Colon & Rectum (Oren D, Atamanalp SS, Aydinli B, Yildirgan MI, Basoglu M, Polat KY, Onbas O. An algorithm for the management of sigmoid colon volvulus and the safety of primary resection: experience with 827 cases. Dis Colon Rectum 2007; 50:489-497).
