Pediatric Gastric Volvulus: Is Laparoscopic Hill-Snow-Modified Gastropexy the Effective Long-Term Minimally Invasive Solution?

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2022 Jun 6. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Department of Pediatric Surgery and Pediatric Minimally Invasive Surgery and New Technologies, San Bortolo Hospital, Vicenza, Italy.

Gastric volvulus (GV) is a rare and life-threatening condition if not promptly diagnosed and treated. Extreme rotation can cause obstruction cutting off blood supply to stomach and distal organs, leading to ischemia and necrosis. It is a clinically significant cause of acute/recurrent abdominal pain and chronic vomiting in children. Read More

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.

Tomography 2022 01 21;8(1):245-256. Epub 2022 Jan 21.

Department of Radiology, Infanta Margarita Hospital, 14940 Cabra, Spain.

Background: Gastric volvulus (GV) is a life-threatening emergency condition that prompts emergent surgical management. With the advent of high-resolution computed tomography (CT), the role of radiologists in its diagnosis has become essential. Although many cases of GV have been described in the literature, its pathophysiology is still poorly understood. Read More

Discordant intestinal malrotation in adult monozygotic twins discovered incidentally during laparoscopic gastric bypass: A case report and review of the literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2022 Mar 8;92:106819. Epub 2022 Feb 8.

Department of Clinical Surgical Sciences, University of the West Indies, St Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago.

Introduction And Importance: Intestinal Malrotation is an uncommon entity in the adult population; more so in monozygotic twins, where concordance is expected. In literature, discordant intestinal Malrotation has only been discovered when one twin became symptomatic, and the other was screened. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first documented case of discordant adult type intestinal Malrotation in otherwise asymptomatic monozygotic twins discovered incidentally during Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric bypass (LRYGB).

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.

Gastric volvulus and tension gastrothorax secondary to spontaneous transdiaphragmatic intercostal hernia.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Jan 17;15(1). Epub 2022 Jan 17.

Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery, Austin and Repatriation Medical Centre, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia.

Spontaneous transdiaphragmatic intercostal hernia is an extremely rare clinical entity featuring dual defects in the diaphragm and chest wall. We report on the case of a 59-year-old man who developed a large left-sided hernia secondary to the minor trauma of a coughing fit. The hernia subsequently enlarged over the course of 3 years until it contained the stomach, leading to a gastric volvulus and tension gastrothorax with secondary pneumothorax. Read More

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.

Black oesophagus, upside-down stomach and cameron lesions: cascade effects of a large hiatal hernia.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Nov 12;14(11). Epub 2021 Nov 12.

Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, New York University/Langone Medical Center, New York, New York, USA.

Acute oesophageal necrosis, black oesophagus (BE) or Gurvits syndrome (GS) is a rare form of severe oesophagitis appearing as a striking circumferential discolouration of distal mucosa with various proximal extensions abruptly terminating at the gastro-oesophageal junction. It is most commonly associated with acute exacerbations of medical comorbidities, while associations with altered gut anatomy are rare. We present a unique constellation of BE, Cameron ulcers (CU), and gastric volvulus from a large paraesophageal hiatal hernia. Read More

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2021 Oct 13;70:102857. Epub 2021 Sep 13.

Department of Radiology, Faculty of Medicine, Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt.

Introduction And Importance: Gastric volvulus is the abnormal gastric rotation upon itself.

[Two cases of chronic upside down stomach with "reverse incarceration" in the abdominal cavity].

Nihon Shokakibyo Gakkai Zasshi 2021 ;118(7):652-660

Department of Gastroenterology, Nagano Chuo Hospital.

Upside down stomach (UDS) is a rare type of hiatal hernia. It is categorized by herniation of either the entire stomach or most of the gastric portion of the stomach into the posterior mediastinum. Acute UDS usually presents with abdominal and thoracic symptoms immediately after the stomach rotates, while chronic UDS often has either mild or no symptoms with the entire stomach rotated in the mediastinum.

Gastric and Large Colon Impactions Combined With Aggressive Enteral Fluid Therapy May Predispose to Large Colon Volvulus: 4 Cases.

J Equine Vet Sci 2021 07 18;102:103617. Epub 2021 Apr 18.

Department of Veterinary Sciences, University of Turin, Italy.

To resolve large colon impactions, frequent enteral administration of large volumes of water (8-10 liters in a 500 kg horse) has been suggested. Furthermore, in large colon volvulus, the simultaneous presence of gastric impaction has been described as a possible predisposing factor. To describe the clinical and surgical features of horses with large colon volvulus associated with aggressive enteral fluid therapy performed to resolve an initial large colon impaction. Read More
