Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Malrotation with midgut volvulus in a newborn is not a rare condition and Ladd's procedure is the recommended surgical treatment. Recurrent volvulus after Ladd's procedure is very rare. We present a case of an infant operated on after birth for malrotation and midgut volvulus with 2 recurrent similar episodes in the following 20 months. We recommend abrasion of the parietal and visceral peritoneal surfaces when recurrence of malrotation occurs.
