Videos: The Ladd Procedure for Adult Malrotation With Volvulus

Brady JT, Kendrick DE, Barksdale EM, Reynolds HL. The Ladd Procedure for Adult Malrotation With Volvulus. Dis Colon Rectum. 2018 Mar;61(3):410.

“Intestinal malrotation is a rare condition that develops during fetal development because of incomplete intestinal rotation or a lack of intestinal rotation around the superior mesenteric artery. Presentation in adulthood, in general, is abnormal and presentation with volvulus is rare. We demonstrate an open Ladd procedure with inversion appendectomy and reduction of paraduodenal hernia of an adult with malrotation with volvulus.”


This talk was presented at the 2018 SAGES Meeting/16th World Congress of Endoscopic Surgery by Ann Y Chung during the SS06: Complications/Interesting Case Videos Session on April 11, 2018.
