In brief: Reversal of organs
The body has a normal orientation of our internal organs , both in the chest and the abdomen.
Heart is in the left chest. Stomach is in the left upper quadrant, etc. In situs inversus the organs are oriented in a mirror image. They will function normal. Tests may need to be done to confirm that organs are indeed a complete mirror image otherwise a risk of malrotation may exist.
