- •Malrotation and nonfixation are associated with increased small bowel obstruction (SBO).
- •Normal rotation is not fully protective from volvulus.
- •Malrotation without LADD procedure may increase risk for SBO including volvulus.
- •Bowel rotation and fixation should be evaluated during initial surgery, routinely documented and used for family counseling.
