1/153. Laparoscopic gastropexy for acute gastric volvulus: a case report.

    A 7-year-old girl presented with an acute gastric volvulus that was reduced with a nasogastric catheter. An anterior gastropexy was undertaken laparoscopically. The gastrocolic omentum was deficient along most of the greater curvature, which had allowed organoaxial volvulus. Two years later, gastric volvulus has not recurred. laparoscopy is an acceptable approach for the evaluation and treatment of children with acute gastric volvulus. ( info)

2/153. Gastric volvulus: case report and review of the literature.

    We report a case of gastric volvulus and comment on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of this rare, potentially fatal cause of gastrointestinal obstruction. ( info)

3/153. Intra-abdominal gastric volvulus. An indication for gastropexy through laparoscopy.

    Intra-abdominal gastric volvulus is a chronic or acute condition that may be cured by conventional surgery through laparotomy. We report a case of subacute intra-abdominal volvulus who benefited from a gastropexy through laparoscopy. We show that this technique is feasible, safe and efficient. Technical details are described to perform the procedure easily and rapidly. ( info)

4/153. Primary intrathoracic gastric volvulus in a newborn.

    Primary gastric volvulus in the neonatal period is extremely rare, with only 18 cases reported in the literature. The authors describe the case of a newborn with intrathoracic gastric volvulus and discuss its management. ( info)

5/153. Acute gastric volvulus secondary to a Morgagni hernia.

    Gastric volvulus (GV) is a rare surgical emergency in infancy and childhood. The first case of a child with an acute GV secondary to a Morgagni hernia (MH) is reported. The authors briefly discuss the etiology, clinical features, and management of acute GV and review the scattered reports of strangulated MHs in children. ( info)

6/153. A rare coexistence of two gastric outlet obstructive lesions: infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and organoaxial gastric volvulus.

    Infantile pyloric stenosis is one of the most common conditions requiring surgery during the first few weeks of life. The association of infantile pyloric stenosis with gastric volvulus in an extremely uncommon occurrence. A 10-month-old male infant operated for infantile pyloric stenosis at two months of age is presented. His current problem was recurrent pulmonary infections and he was diagnosed to have organoaxial gastric volvulus and gastroesophageal reflux. The common features of presentation, radiological findings, surgical procedures and possible mechanisms of gastric volvulus associated with infantile pyloric stenosis are discussed. ( info)

7/153. Gastric volvulus associated with wandering spleen in a child.

    wandering spleen is an uncommon entity in childhood and has been described only rarely in association with gastric volvulus. wandering spleen and gastric volvulus were diagnosed in a 5-year-old boy who presented with acute abdominal pain and distension. Intraoperatively, normal ligamentous connections between the stomach, spleen, and posterior abdominal wall were absent. Developmental anomalies that result in wandering spleen may lead to hypermobility of the stomach and a predisposition to gastric volvulus. In such patients, prophylactic gastropexy should be considered. ( info)

8/153. Neonatal gastric volvulus.

    Three infants with acute gastric volvulus occurring during the first week of life are presented, bringing the total number of cases reported in the neonatal period to nine. Abdominal radiographs and constrast studies of the upper gastrointestinal tract were nearly identical in all three infants and showed a characteristic pattern that allowed unequivocal preoperative diagnosis. It is essential that the radiologist recognize the radiographic features of acute gastric volvulus, since prompt operative intervention is mandatory to prevent late complications, which include gastric perforation and death.

9/153. Subacute gastric volvulus--a rare cause of vomiting in the elderly.

    We report a case of an important and uncommon cause of vomiting in an elderly female patient who had no previous apparent gastrointestinal problems. A diaphragmatic hernia with gastric volvulus, which presented non-specifically but was an important diagnosis to make. ( info)

10/153. Gastric volvulus in childhood.

    Gastric volvulus, organoaxial or mesenteroaxial, is an uncommon cause of upper gastrointestinal obstruction in childhood. It may be suspected on plain radiographic examination of the abdomen and confirmed by upper gastrointestinal series. Seven affected children are described. In childhood, gastric volvulus often coexists with mesenteric abnormalities or with lesions that lead to distention of the gastrointestinal tract. ( info)
