Laparoscopic gastropexy for acute gastric volvulus: a case report.
J Pediatr Surg. 1999 Mar; 34(3):477-8.JP

Abstract

A 7-year-old girl presented with an acute gastric volvulus that was reduced with a nasogastric catheter. An anterior gastropexy was undertaken laparoscopically. The gastrocolic omentum was deficient along most of the greater curvature, which had allowed organoaxial volvulus. Two years later, gastric volvulus has not recurred. Laparoscopy is an acceptable approach for the evaluation and treatment of children with acute gastric volvulus.
