Gastric remnant mesentero-axial volvulus following Roux-en-Y esophagojejunostomy: A rare complication.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 May 7;82:105873. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Esophageal Institute, Allegheny Health Network, Pittsburgh, PA, United States. Electronic address:

Introduction: Acute gastric volvulus is a surgical emergency with a mortality as high as 15-20%. The rarity of gastric volvulus requires high index of clinical suspicion especially in the patients with altered anatomy, to allow immediate surgical intervention and reduce the morbidity and mortality.

Presentation Of Case: We present an unusual case of gastric remnant volvulus several months following Roux-en-Y esophagojejunostomy performed in an obese patient for severe, recurrent gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and failed prior fundoplication. Read More

Acute gallbladder torsion - a continued pre-operative diagnostic dilemma.

World J Emerg Surg 2011 Apr 13;6(1):13. Epub 2011 Apr 13.

Department of General Surgery, Saint Joseph Mercy Health System, Suite R-2111, PO Box 995, Ann Arbor, MI, 48106, USA.

Acute gallbladder volvulus continues to remain a relatively uncommon process, manifesting itself usually during exploration for an acute surgical abdomen with a presumptive diagnosis of acute cholecystitis. The pathophysiology is that of mechanical organo-axial torsion along the gallbladder's longitudinal axis involving the cystic duct and cystic artery, and with a pre-requisite of local mesenteric redundancy. The demographic tendency is septua- and octo-genarians of the female sex, and its overall incidence is increasing, this being attributed to increasing life expectancy. Read More

Laparoscopic anterior gastropexy for chronic recurrent gastric volvulus: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2008 Jul 24;2:244. Epub 2008 Jul 24.

Università degli Studi di Perugia, Clinica Chirurgica Generale e d'Urgenza, Azienda Ospedaliera 'S Maria' Terni, Italy.

Introduction: Gastric volvulus is an uncommon clinical entity, first described by Berti in 1866. It is a rotation of all or part of the stomach through more than 180 degrees . This rotation can occur on the longitudinal (organo-axial) or transverse (mesentero-axial) axis. Read More

Organo-axial volvulus of the stomach with diaphragmatic eventration.

Korean J Intern Med 2000 Jul;15(2):127-30

Department of Internal Medicine and Radiology, College of Medicine, Pochon CHA University, Korea.

Gastric volvulus occurs when the stomach rotates about its longitudinal axis (organo-axial volvulus), or about an axis joining the lesser and greater curvatures (mesentero-axial volvulus). Primary gastric volvulus, making up one third of cases, occurs when the stabilizing ligaments are too lax as a result of congenital or acquired causes. Secondary gastric volvulus, making up the remainder of cases, occurs in association with a paraesophageal hernia or other congenital or acquired diaphragmatic defects. Read More
