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

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2018 Sep;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.

Mesentero-axial gastric volvulus after removal of laparoscopic adjustable gastric band.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2017 Feb 28;99(2):e58-e59. Epub 2016 Oct 28.

Addenbrooke's Hospital , Cambridge , UK.

Despite the decreasing popularity of gastric banding, a large number of patients still have a band in situ. Although immediate postoperative complications are relatively rare, long-term complications of gastric banding are more common but are not reported to occur after band removal. We report a case of gastric volvulus and subsequent ischaemic perforation in a patient shortly after band removal, resulting in emergency laparotomy and total gastrectomy. Read More

Imaging spectrum of nonneoplastic duodenal diseases.

Clin Imaging 2016 Nov - Dec;40(6):1173-1181. Epub 2016 Aug 6.

Department of Internal Medicine, Pratumtani Hospital, 7 Ladlumkaew Muang District, Pratumtani 12000, Thailand. Electronic address:

The duodenum is a short segment of the bowel that is frequently overlooked on radiologic examination. This unique portion occupies both intraperitoneal and extraperitoneal locations, with proximity to many visceral organs, including pancreas, stomach, aorta, and liver. This close proximity creates a differentiation challenge for the radiologist. Read More

[Cecal herniation through the foramen of Winslow as a rare cause of ileus].

Authors:
V Sobek M Chrostek

Rozhl Chir Summer 2016;95(7):291-3

Unlabelled: Internal abdominal hernias present an infrequent surgical diagnosis and are usually encountered accidentally during surgery. They are generally considered as an extremely rare cause of ileus. In our article we present the case of a 69-year-old healthy female who was operated for suspected gastric volvulus as suggested by the CT scan; however, upon surgery, herniation of the right-sided colon into the omental bursa with subsequent cecal dilation and bowel wall necrosis was revealed to be the true culprit.

Acute gastric volvulus: a deadly but commonly forgotten complication of hiatal hernia.

Autops Case Rep 2016 Jan-Mar;6(1):21-6. Epub 2016 Mar 30.

Department of Pathology - Mount Sinai Medical Center, Miami Beach/FL - USA.; Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine - Florida International University, Miami/FL - USA.

Gastric volvulus is a rare condition resulting from rotation of the stomach beyond 180 degrees. It is a difficult condition to diagnose, mostly because it is rarely considered. Furthermore, the imaging findings are often subtle resulting in many cases being diagnosed at the time of surgery or, as in our case, at autopsy. Read More

Gastric volvulus in children--a diagnostic problem: two case reports.

J Med Case Rep 2016 May 31;10(1):138. Epub 2016 May 31.

Radiology Department, University of Messina, Policlinico G. Martino, Gazzi, Messina, 98100, Italy.

Background: Gastric volvulus is a clinically significant cause of acute or recurrent abdominal pain and chronic vomiting in children. Since related clinical symptoms are nonspecific, clinicians often refer to radiologists for a diagnostic evaluation. Early diagnosis is crucial to prevent life-threatening complications of prolonged volvulus, such as intestinal ischemia, infarction, strangulation, necrosis, and perforation that may require immediate surgical treatment.
