Clinical Trial Summary

Digestive malrotation is an anatomical anomaly of the positionning of the mesenteric vessels and the digestive tract that can lead in some form to a dangerous neonatal complication: intestinal volvulus. This requires emergency surgery with a risk of digestive resection. Visualizing during pregnancy the normal or abnormal anatomical positionning of the mesenteric vessels could make it possible to diagnose this malrotation and prevent the occurrence of this complication. The aim of the study is ti evaluate the ability to identiy prenataly during ultrasound examination, the relative positionning of the fetal mesenteric vessels, and then to correlate it with the real postnatal positionning (gold standard)

Clinical Trial Description

- Prenatal US assessment of mesenteric vessels positioning (relative position of the vein vs artery) during routine 3rd trimester US scan - Description of various anatomical situation - Comparison of this prenatal positioning with postnatal positioning obtained through abdominal ultrasound examination. Post-natal ultrasound being the gold standard ;
