The term Intestinal malrotation is used for defining a rare kind of congenital anomaly of rotation. Here the midgut tends to be on the other side of the body. So the small bowel is located on the right side, which means that there is a shift of the functions here resulting in symptoms like midgut volvulus, vomiting, cramps and abdominal pain, abdominal distention, etc.
HOW IS MALROTATION DIAGNOSED?
After performing a thorough physical exam, the doctor will order tests that evaluate the position of the intestine, and show whether it is twisted or blocked. These tests may include:
• Abdominal x-ray: an x-ray that may show intestinal obstructions
• Barium enema x-ray: Barium is a liquid that makes the intestine show up better on the x-ray. For this test, barium is inserted into the intestine through the anus and then x-rays are taken.
• CT scan: This test uses computers and x-rays to produce many pictures from multiple angles to give doctors an accurate picture of the body..
