Gastric rupture associated with pregnancy.
Obstet Gynecol. 2002 Nov; 100(5 Pt 2):1072-4.OG

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Spontaneous gastric rupture during pregnancy is rare.

CASE

A young primigravida delivered a 34-week stillborn infant. Shortly after delivery, she developed signs of hypovolemic shock. Ultrasound examination showed a large amount of free intra-abdominal fluid. At laparotomy, gastric rupture was encountered and repaired. Congenital eventration of the left hemidiaphragm was also noted. After a complicated postoperative course, the patient recovered and has done well.

CONCLUSION

Rapid surgical intervention for gastric rupture associated with pregnancy is necessary for maternal survival.
