Ladds bands

What are Ladds bands?

Ladd’s bands are dense peritoneal bands that develop as an attempt to affix the bowel to the abdominal wall in bowel malrotation. These may extend from the malpositioned cecum across the duodenum to the posterolateral abdomen and porta hepatis in either incomplete rotation or nonrotation, and they can cause extrinsic duodenal obstruction.
