The unusual blood vessels near the heart had helped compensate for the condition. Walker on Monday gave a poster presentation about the discovery at an annual meeting of the American Association of Anatomists, in Orlando, Florida, on experimental biology.

They noticed the blood vessels were different. When they opened the abdominal cavity, they saw that all the other organs were on the wrong side.
