Intestinal derotation (ID) is a rarely used surgical technique which allows elegant and effective surgical access to the superior mesenteric axis and third and fourth portion of the duodenum. ID proves an extremely useful technique especially in the emergency setting when access to the “surgical soul” is needed. To master this technique the surgeon has to become familiar with the anatomical landmarks of that area along with the embryological background.
