Abstract

Malrotation is an intestinal rotation anomaly rarely diagnosed in adults. In the adult patient, obstructing peritoneal bands may lead to nausea and abdominal distention. Familiarity with this presentation as well as the aberrant anatomy associated with the unusual problem facilitates surgical treatment. While the minimally invasive approach requires meticulous dissection due to this abnormal anatomy, laparoscopic treatment does provide the advantages of short convalescence and low morbidity. This video briefly reviews embryologic intestinal development, rotational anomalies and two laparoscopic Ladd's procedures.
