Laparoscopic gastropexy in a neonate for acute gastric volvulus.
Pediatr Surg Int. 2003 May; 19(3):217-9.PS

Abstract

A 26-day-old male neonate presented with an acute gastric volvulus which was reduced with a nasogastric catheter. The patient was then subjected to laparoscopic anterior gastropexy. Six months after the procedure, the child is thriving and completely free of symptoms. We present this case as the first wherein a laparoscopic gastropexy has been done for gastric volvulus in a neonate. We have found the procedure acceptable for the treatment of neonates with gastric volvulus.
