Laparoscopic reduction of acute gastric volvulus.
Am Surg. 1993 May; 59(5):325-8.AS

Abstract

The traditional surgical treatment of gastric volvulus involves upper abdominal laparotomy with gastric detorsion, fixation, and, when present, repair of associated diaphragmatic hernia. We describe a case of organoaxial gastric volvulus associated with a paraesophageal hernia in a poor risk patient, which was successfully treated with laparoscopic detorsion and percutaneous endoscopic gastropexy. This approach avoided the morbidity of a laparotomy and allowed the rapid recovery of gastric function.
