Abstract

Intestinal malrotation is a well-known surgical disease in the pediatric population with 90 % of cases presenting by 1 year of age (Palmer et al. in Dig Dis Sci). Laparoscopic Ladd procedures have been described in the pediatric population with good outcomes, and there are limited data suggesting this as an acceptable approach in adults (Palmer et al. in Dig Dis Sci; Draus et al. in Am Surg 73:693–696, 2007; Bass et al. in J Pediatr Surg 33:279–281, 1998). To date, there have been no documented cases of robotic assistance for this procedure. In this case, we describe a 22-year-old female with intestinal malrotation who was treated successfully with the first described robotic-assisted laparoscopic Ladd procedure.
