Intestinal intubation to prevent recurrence of midgut volvulus

Mark M. Ravitch, Jerrie Cherry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A case is reported of malrotation of the intestine, duodenojejunal obstruction by fibrous bands, and absence of fixation of the mesentery of the small bowel in a seven month old child. After the obstructing bands were divided, an indwelling rubber catheter was passed in through a gastrostomy and out through a cecostomy to splint the intestines and eliminate the possibility of mechanical intestinal obstruction due to kinking or a volvulus.
