The bowel is left in a corrected malrotated position with the cecum in the left upper quadrant and the duodenojejunal anastomosis in a dependent position. Appendectomy is also performed. Follow-up is from 14-49 months.
As of July, 1999, this procedure has been used in two infants with failed resection and tapering enteroplasties, and primarily in one infant with good results. All three infants were feeding within 14 days of LDAD.
