Intraoperative findings were conspicuous by the presence of midgut volvulus and gastric perforation in the posterior wall.

Marlotacion versus laparoscopic approach for intestinal malrotation in infants and children: Nehra D, Goldstein AM. The upper gastrointestinal series and small bowel series showed the contrast was static over the third portion of the duodenum and the descending colon pulled up toward the epigastric area What Lies Behind Closed Doors.

Transumbilical minilaparotomy in low-birthweight newborns for complicated conditions. Support treatment, inhaled nitric oxide, oral sildenafil and nebulized iloprost were used with no clinical improvement. Its rare incidence and vague clinical presentation make it a difficult diagnosis, more so in a nonverbal patient who cannot express his pain, which is the first and most prominent symptom.

Malrotacion intestinal

The neonate presented an overwhelming course, with hypoxemia refractory to treatment This study aimed to characterize the clinical features of intestinal malrotation in adults, and to compare the results for the open and laparoscopic Ladd procedures. It is more common in right side expecially in obese people. Midgut malrotation is an anomaly of intestinal rotation that occurs during fetal development and usually presents in the neonatal period.

Intestinal malrotation and acute left-sided appendicitis. Intestinal rotational anomalies are failure of normal ontestinal and this arrest in development can predispose to develop a malfixated midgut that is a risk factor for volvulus and significant morbidity and mortality especially in early childhood Successful laparoscopic management of malrotation has been described in a number of case reports.


The laparoscopic Ladd’s procedure is becoming popular with the advent of minimal access surgery and is described in the literature. A retrospective review of medical records from adolescent or adult patients identified with a diagnosis of anomaly of intestinal fixation or malrotation, who were treated within our health system between and These groups were compared retrospectively.

Laparoscopy revealed typical Ladd’s bands and a distended flabby third and fourth duodenal portion extrinsically obstructing the misplaced duodeno-jejunal junction For the period from January to December 34 Ladd’s procedures were performed.

The first case was a year-old man initially treated for diverticulitis but at laparotomy was malrrotacion to have malrotation of the midgut and a perforated left-sided appendicitis Clinicians should be aware of this rare but serious cause of abdominal pain.

A year-old male presented symptoms of pain in the upper abdomen accompanied by vomiting.

There were significant differences in duration of operation between both groups 61 vs The clinical, radiological and operative records of all the children aged 2 years or above, managed for malrotation at the Jos University Teaching Hospital between Maorotacion and December were retrospectively reviewed Surgical intervention frequently leads to other complications in these patients.

Upper gastrointestinal UGI contrast studies have been considered the gold standard for diagnosis. It involves cutting the peritoneal bands that fix the bowel in its anomalous position. This study evaluates the feasibility and the outcomes of laparoscopic treatment of midgut volvulus compared with classic open Ladd’s procedure in neonates. Turk J Pediatr ; We present a rare case of this syndrome in a man with serious obstructive symptoms Varied clinical presentation from infancy through adulthood.

The malrotaciom of this study is to examine the outcome of transumbilical minilaparotomy for infants and compare the results between normal birthweight NBW and low birthweight LBW. The efficiency of sonography in diagnosing volvulus in neonates with suspected intestinal malrotation.


The development of the dorsal mesentery in human embryos and fetuses. We hypothesized that the chronic nature of malrotation in adults could cause a delay in diagnosis and increased perioperative complications.

The associated formation of the lesser sac partitions the dorsal mesentery into the right-sided “caval fold” that serves as conduit for the inferior caval vein and the left-sided mesogastrium To analyze complications after laparoscopic Ladd operation for intestinal malrotation, related causes and possible solutions.

To compare treatment of intestinal malrotation in newborns and infants using laparoscopy and laparotomy. Although the principles of the Ladd’s procedure for intestinal malrotation in children have remained unchanged since its first description, in the era of minimally invasive surgery it is controversial whether laparoscopy is advantageous over open surgery. The vertebrate intestine has a continuous dorsal mesentery between pharynx and anus that facilitates intestinal mobility.

Intestinal malrotation in adulthood may present with a variety of chronic symptoms. We present a case of pediatric onset chronic intestinal pseudoobstruction associated with a novel missense ACTG2 mutation c. We found that nine of ten patients with intestinal malrotation, six of them underwent laparoscopic Ladd’s procedure and three patients underwent open Ladd’s procedure A total of 33 patients were diagnosed with malrotation and treated with Ladd’s procedure The bowel was derotated, Ladd’s bands divided, and the mesentery broadened Successful treatment of a year-old patient with intestinal malrotation with laparoscopic Ladd procedure: Malrktacion addition to the known disease manifestations of feeding intolerance and intestinal malrotation, our patient had a late-onset hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and a late-onset choledochal cyst, the former of maorotacion has not previously been described in patients with ACTG2-associated visceral myopathy
