In brief: Reposition duodenum

In development of the small intestine, the bowel will rotate to its proper position.
In malrotation this does not happen and can lead to obstruction and possible lack of of the blood supply. The surgeon places the duodenum(first part of the intestine) in its correct position and this prevent it from twisting, obstructing and loss of blood supply. The surgeon may also cut obstructing tissue.
