Gastric volvulus with a large bochdalek hernia in an adult successfully treated with emergency endoscopic reduction followed by elective laparoscopic mesh repair: A case study.Asian J Endosc Surg. 2016 Nov; 9(4):318-321.AJ
We report a case of gastric volvulus with a large Bochdalek hernia successfully treated with emergency endoscopic reduction followed by elective laparoscopic mesh repair. The patient was a 71-year-old woman with no history of trauma. She was referred to our hospital because of nausea and vomiting after eating. Thoracic and abdominal CT showed gastric volvulus and a large Bochdalek hernia. The patient underwent emergency endoscopic reduction and elective laparoscopic surgery. The defect (10 × 12 cm) was reinforced with a Dual Mesh (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) and fixed to the diaphragm with nonabsorbable sutures. The postoperative course was uneventful, and no complications or recurrence was found at the 2-year follow-up. The endoscopic reduction and elective laparoscopic procedure was performed successfully and resulted in significant clinical improvement in this case.
