Acute Intestinal Obstruction in an Adult Patient Due to Ladd’s Band: A Case Report

Introduction: In adult patients some adhesions between intestinal segments and malignities are common in the ethiology of mechanic intestinal obstruction whereas congenital anomalies are seen rare. In this case report we present a 60-year-old patient presents with mechanical bowel obstruction symptoms and diagnosed as Ladd's bands.

Case presentation: A 60-year-old male applies emergency servise with vomiting and nausea. According to the laboratory and radiological tests the paient was diagnosed as mechanical bowel obstruction and underwent exploratory laparatomy. In exploration Ladd's band was seen and cut for releasing the herniated intestinal segments.

Discussion: Congenital anomalies of intestinal rotation are often seen in infants and children therefore this pathology can be missed in adult patients. We must be aware of these pathologies on the way of diagnosis of the patients with mechanical bowel obstruction.
