This research is based on the analysis of immediate and long-term treatment results of children with intestinal malrotation (ok) (IM). The research was carried out basing on examination of 46 patients out of 74 patients with various forms of IM dismissed from hospital after open treatment or conservative management. The patients were treated in the hospital of pediatric surgery of TashPMI during the period from 2002 to 2013. The nature and frequency of post-surgery complications are described. Long-term results were evaluated as good - for 28 patients (66.7%), satisfactory - for 5 patients (11.9%), unsatisfactory - for 9 patients (21.4%). Inefficiency of conservative management is emphasized. Frequently observed chronic colostasis of various intensity and abdominal pains in the long-term period after the treatment were, in most cases, related to total or segmental colon elongation.
