(See also Congenital abnormalities of the gastrointestinal tract in the overview.) The malrotation of the intestine is an intrauterine malformation of the intestine to place themselves in the right place in the abdomen. Diagnosis is made by radiography of the abdomen. The treatment of choice is surgical recovery. Malrotation is the most common congenital anomaly of the small intestine. It is estimated that an asymptomatic rotation abnormality occurs in 1 out of 200 live births; However, symptomatic malrotation occurs less frequently (1 in 6000 live births). In the early fetal development, the primitive intestine from the abdominal cavity bulges. To get back in the abdomen, it normally rotates counterclockwise, the cecum ultimately comes to lie in the lower right quadrant. If the rotation is incomplete, so that the cecum is elsewhere (usually right upper quadrant or Mittelepigastrium), can lead to intestinal obstruction, either by retroperitoneal ligaments (Ladd method), the pull on the duodenum, or by a volvulus of the small intestine rotating without its normal attachment to be limited, stalk-type mesentery. Other malformations occur in 30-60% of patients, usually there are other GIT malformations (z. B. gastroschisis, omphalocele, diaphragmatic hernia, ntestinale atresia, Meckel diverticulum). Patients with malrotation may be symptomatic with acute abdominal pain and biliary vomiting, with acute volvulus, typical reflux or chronic abdominal pain in childhood or adulthood. If left untreated, there is a high risk for bowel infarction and short bowel syndrome. Biliary vomiting in children is an emergency and should be investigated because of malrotation and volvulus one immediately. Diagnostic X-rays of the abdomen Upper GI series in children with toxic vomiting should immediately Abdomenleeraufnahmen be made. When a dilated stomach and proximal small intestine ( “Double-bubble-Sign”) and / or little intestine air distal show the duodenum, it is suspected a Mitteldarmvolvulus. Other diagnostics and therapy must be initiated immediately. A barium enema normally displays the cecum outside the lower right quadrant. If the diagnosis is still uncertain then, can be attempted cautiously a contrast study of the upper GIT.
