Abstract

PAULEAU, Ghislain; COMMANDEUR, Diane; ANDRO, Christophe  and  CHAPELLIER, Xavier. Intestinal prolapse through a persistent omphalomesenteric duct causing small-bowel obstruction. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2012, vol.50, n.3, pp.102-103. ISSN 2078-5151.

Persistent omphalomesenteric duct as a cause of small-bowel obstruction is an exceptional finding. A neonate presented with occlusion due to intestinal prolapse through a persistent omphalomesenteric duct. Remnants of the duct were successfully resected, and the postoperative course was uneventful. We discuss the presentation of omphalomesenteric duct and its management.
