Abstract:
Malrotation is a common abnormality, often diagnosed in the neonatal period. Symptoms may be nonspecific and clinical signs of volvulus are often only seen in the late stages when there has been significant ischemic insult to the bowel. The gold standard diagnostic investigation is the upper gastrointestinal (UGI) contrast study. This study was designed to assess the incidence of negative laparotomy in patients with malrotation diagnosed on UGI contrast study and to identify the clinical signs and symptoms at presentation.
