Yes, the question clicked for me when I realized the ligament was on the RT side instead of LT so I thought of Volvulus.

So Volvulus regardless in baby or adult is gonna cause SMA prob
+ Duodenal Obstruction: d/t Ladd bands
im gonna go back and remember those associations :)
i had notes from forever ago but i totally forgot lol
