[A case report of Bochdalek's hernia with volvulus of the stomach in an adult].
Nihon Kyobu Geka Gakkai Zasshi. 1990 Sep; 38(9):1488-91.NK

Abstract

We report a rare case of Bochdalekhs hernia, congenital posterolateral diaphragmatic hernia with mesenterioaxia volvulus of the stomach, in an adult. A 23-year-old man suddenly felt severe pain in his left chest after drinking beer. Roentgenologic examination of the chest showed air above the left diaphragm, and the mediastinum was displaced to the right. Upper gastrointestinal series revealed mesenterioaxial volvulus of the stomach in which the pylorus was displaced to the left. Thoracotomy through the left seventh intercostal space was performed. The stomach, colon, spleen and greater omentum were displaced into the left thoracic cavity. After reduction of the herniated viscera, a defect measuring 10 X 4 cm, in the posterolateral part of the diaphragm, was closed with double interrupted Tevdek sutures. Three months later, he was asymptomatic and his chest roentgenogram was normal.
