In brief: Approach

In an anterior approach, where the bowels are handled, it is not very uncommon.
It may also happen with a posterior approach, because the body is lengthened. If the child is very tall and skinny (especially with marfan's), consider sma syndrome, which is a vascular problem, and requires more attention.
