ABSTRACT
Atresia is derived from Greek words “a” (no) and “tresis” (orifice); and refers to congenital obstruction of intestine due to complete occlusion of the bowel lumen.The sequestered bowel may resorpt partially or completely. Complete resorption occurs in majority, however, when the event of volvulus and atresia occurs late in gestation the necrotic bowel may be present at birth.
