Abstract

Abstract Clinical experience with forty cases of anomalies of rotation and fixation of the midgut loop and its mesentery is reported. Suggestions regarding a practical classification of such anomalies are made. These abnormalities may cause symptoms in the neonatal period or the patient may remain asymptomatic into adulthood. The mere presence of such anomalies is not an indication for surgical exploration.
