[Volvulus of the stomach in combination with hiatal hernia (author's transl)].Zentralbl Chir. 1977; 102(25):1564-71.ZC
Cases of acute or chronic abdominal complaints in adults can be accounted for as conditions resulting from volvulus of the stomach with oesophagial hernia. In a total of 73 cases of hiatus hernias the author has observed 6 patients with a simultaneous volvulus of the stomach (8,1%) from 1967 to 1976. Pathogenesis, symptoms, surgical indication and the operative technique are discussed. By means of gastropexy, fundiplication and narrowing of the oesphageal hiatus the patients could be freed of complaints and recurrences.
