Case Report: Ladd's Procedure in Case of Intestinal Malrotation in Adult: Rare Entity

Dr Jignesh Dave [2] | Dr Nisheel Ghetiya | Dr Vidit Jethwa [2]

Abstract: Intestinal Malrotation is rare in adults. Patients may present with acute obstruction or chronic abdominal pain. These symptoms are caused by Ladd's bands and narrow mesentery resulting from incomplete gut rotation. Barium, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography and sometimes explorative laparotomy are used for diagnosis. Ladd's procedure is the treatment of choice. We report a case of Open Ladd's procedure done in case of adult malrotation presenting with chronic abdominal pain. The diagnosis is made by CT. Open Ladd's procedure (release of bands, broadening of mesentery and appendicectomy) was performed. Patients was discharged on postoperative day 5. At 6 months follow - up, all are symptom free.
