Extrahepatic biliary obstruction complicating a diaphragmatic hiatal hernia with intrathoracic gastric volvulus.Am J Gastroenterol. 1986 Apr; 81(4):292-4.AJ
Gastric volvulus is an uncommon condition in which an acquired torsion of the stomach results in acute or chronic gastrointestinal symptoms. We report a case of an intrathoracic organoaxial gastric volvulus presenting as a cholestatic syndrome, secondary to partial obstruction of the common bile duct by the diaphragm at the level of the hiatus. This entity has not been reported.
