The Key Role of Upper Endoscopy in Diagnosing Gastric Herniation and Volvulus in Acute Gastrointestinal Obstruction.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2022 Jan-Apr;16(1):252-257. Epub 2022 Apr 7.

University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas, USA.

The diagnosis of gastric volvulus can be a clinical challenge as it is rare, and the symptoms are often nonspecific and intermittent. Upper endoscopy is a minimally invasive intervention that may be repeated more than once to provide key information and ultimately establish such a diagnosis. To emphasize the role of upper endoscopy in surgical cases with recurrent upper gastrointestinal obstructions, we present a case of intermittent gastric volvulus in a patient with a remote history of complex chest wall reconstruction for invasive breast cancer using an omental flap.

Acute Gastric Volvulus in the Setting of a Paraesophageal Hernia With Hemoperitoneum: Emergency Department Diagnosis and Management.

Cureus 2021 Dec 14;13(12):e20404. Epub 2021 Dec 14.

Emergency Medicine, Envision Physician Services, Plantation, USA.

Acute gastric volvulus is an uncommon emergency department (ED) presentation associated with high mortality from gastric ischemia and perforation. The diagnosis of this pathology is complicated by its intermittent symptoms and similarity in presentation to more common disorders encountered in the ED. Assessing for key risk factors, such as the presence of a hiatal hernia, and the use of expeditious imaging modalities, such as bedside radiography and point-of-care ultrasonography, are essential in rapid diagnosis and time-sensitive, definitive surgical intervention.

Pathophysiology of intraabdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome and relevance to veterinary critical care.

J Vet Emerg Crit Care (San Antonio) 2022 Jan;32(S1):48-56

Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA.

Background: Increased intraabdominal pressure, termed intraabdominal hypertension (IAH), is reported as an independent cause of morbidity and mortality in the human ICU but, until recently, has been rarely described in veterinary species outside of experimental models. Failure to identify severe IAH leads to organ dysfunction, termed abdominal compartment syndrome, and rapidly becomes fatal without therapeutic intervention. Although the veterinary community has been slow to address the concept of IAH and associated comorbidities, recent companion and large animal case series and experimental studies suggest IAH may also be common in veterinary species and correlates well with risk factors and grading systems already described in the human literature.

A distinctive case of congenital midgut malrotation with volvulus in an adolescent female managed by Ladd's procedure - A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2022 Jan 5;90:106752. Epub 2022 Jan 5.

Department of Surgery, Al-Mouwasat University Hospital, Syria. Electronic address:

Introduction And Importance: Midgut Malrotation (MM) is a potentially fatal and rare congenital anomaly that results from an incomplete rotation of the bowel 270 degrees around the Superior Mesenteric Axis. Newborns are the most affected age group, nevertheless, adult malrotation can manifest, but in a much rarer incidence rate. Clinical awareness must be present when faced with a surgical abdomen in an adolescent patient because this pathology can have several misleading signs and symptoms which may eclipse the true preoperative diagnosis and masquerade as another, and this could result in implementing a different therapeutic approach.
