Laparoscopic management of neonatal gastric volvulus: a case report and review of the literature.Eur J Pediatr Surg. 2009 Jun; 19(3):191-3.EJ
We report a neonate who presented with failure to thrive, non-bilious vomiting and upper abdominal distension starting at one week of age. A barium upper GI study confirmed the diagnosis of organoaxial volvulus of the stomach, and the child underwent a successful laparoscopic gastropexy. At one year of follow-up the child is asymptomatic. We discuss the technique and review the literature.
