Adult mesentero-axial gastric volvulus: Case report.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2020 May 22. Epub 2020 May 22.

Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Acute gastric volvulus is a rare surgical emergency which can lead to severe complications such as gastric ischaemia and perforation. Gastric volvulus is classified by the axis upon which the stomach rotates into organo-axial and mesentero-axial subtypes, with the former more common in adults. We present an uncommon case of recurrent adult mesentero-axial gastric volvulus and describe the associated radiological findings. Read More

Acute intrathoracic gastric volvulus: A rare delayed presentation of congenital diaphragmatic hernia: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2020 11;70:123-125. Epub 2020 May 11.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alexandria, Egypt. Electronic address:

Introduction: Acute intrathoracic gastric volvulus occurs when the stomach undergoes organoaxial rotation in the chest due presence of a diaphragmatic defect. Gastric volvulus associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia is extremely rare and can be explained as 2 of the 4 ligaments supporting the stomach (gastrophrenic and gastrosplenic) which are connected to the left diaphragm may become elongated or absent. According to the current literature, only 27 pediatric cases have been reported so far. Read More

The role of sonography in differentiating congenital intrinsic duodenal anomalies from midgut malrotation: emphasizing the new signs of duodenal and gastric wall thickening and hyperechogenicity.

Pediatr Radiol 2020 May 23;50(5):673-683. Epub 2020 Jan 23.

Department of Medical Imaging, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Background: The clinical and plain radiographic differentiation of congenital intrinsic duodenal anomalies (atresia, web, stenosis) from intestinal malrotation is not always clear. Although sonography has been documented as an important diagnostic tool in the differentiation of these two entities, its role is still not widely appreciated and it is still not universally utilized in this clinical setting.

Objective: To assess the usefulness of sonographic features of the duodenal and gastric wall in the differentiation of congenital intrinsic duodenal anomalies from midgut malrotation in a large series of neonates and to compare them with other features on abdominal radiographs, ultrasound and upper gastrointestinal series.

Use of computed tomography volumetric measurements to predict operative techniques in paraesophageal hernia repair.

Surg Endosc 2020 Apr 12;34(4):1785-1794. Epub 2019 Aug 12.

Division of Gastrointestinal and Minimally Invasive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Carolinas Medical Center, 1025 Morehead Medical Drive, Suite 300, Charlotte, NC, 28204, USA.

Background: Despite advances in diagnostic imaging capabilities, little information exists concerning the impact of physical dimensions of a paraesophageal hernia (PEH) on intraoperative decision making. The authors hypothesized that computerized volumetric analysis and multidimensional visualization to measure hiatal defect area (HDA) and intrathoracic hernia sac volume (HSV) would correlate to operative findings and required surgical techniques performed.

Methods: Using volumetric analysis software (Aquarius iNtuition, TeraRecon, Inc), HDA and HSV were measured in PEH patients with preoperative computerized tomography (CT) scans, and used to predict the likelihood of intraoperative variables. Read More

Fetal Primary Small Bowel Volvulus Associated with Acute Gastric Dilatation Detected by Ultrasonography.

Kobe J Med Sci 2019 Jan 11;64(4):E157-E159. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Department of Pediatrics, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe, Japan.

Fetal intestinal volvulus is a rare condition, and fetal diagnosis of this disease is still challenging, especially in primary cases not accompanied by other comorbidities, such as intestinal malformations. Herein, we report a case of fetal primary small bowel volvulus associated with acute gastric dilatation detected by ultrasonography. We speculate that the mechanism of acute gastric dilatation in our case was peristatic malfunction of the whole intestine caused by a strangulated ileus resulting from fetal intestinal volvulus.

Mimics of malrotation on pediatric upper gastrointestinal series: a pictorial review.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2018 09;43(9):2246-2254

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, 3401 Civic Center Blvd, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

Intestinal malrotation is a continuum of congenital anomalies due to lack of rotation or incomplete rotation of the fetal intestine around the superior mesenteric artery axis. The abnormal bowel fixation (by mesenteric bands) or absence of fixation of portions of the bowel increases the risk of bowel obstruction, acute or chronic volvulus, and bowel necrosis. The clinical presentation of patients with malrotation without, with intermittent, or with chronic volvulus can be problematic, with an important minority presenting late or having atypical or chronic symptoms, such as intermittent vomiting, abdominal pain, duodenal obstruction, or failure to thrive.

Acute primary mesenteroaxial gastric volvulus in a 6 years old child; the contribution of ultrasonographic findings to the prompt diagnosis (a case report and review of the literature).

Folia Med Cracov 2017;57(3):47-55

M. Alexandrou 3B, Pefka, Thessaloniki 57010, Greece.

The aim of the present case study is to raise concern on the proper diagnostic approach of acute gastric volvulus (AGV) cases, in which, the key issue is the timely diagnosis and the prompt therapeutic intervention. After thorough and systematic research of the current literature, it is concluded that early diagnosis remains challenging, while there is no relevant publication with emphasis on the contribution of ultrasonography to the diagnostic documentation of AGV. A 6 years old boy was admitted to our Department due to repeatedly non bilious vomiting and food refusal during the last 72 hours before admission. Read More

Niger J Surg 2017 Jul-Dec;23(2):145-147

Department of Surgery, Government Medical College and Rajindra Hospital, Patiala, Punjab, India.

Gastric volvulus is a rare medical entity that requires high index of suspicion for diagnosis and treatment as it has different implications in terms of clinical presentation, diagnosis, imaging support, pathological behavior, and evaluation. When it presents acutely, it may be easily detected. However, in patients with subacute presentation, symptoms are vague due to episodic twisting and untwisting. Read More
