Atypical Presentation of Gastric Volvulus

Denzil Etienne, Mel A. Ona, Madhavi Reddy

Abstract


Gastric volvulus has been reported in all age groups; however, it is typically diagnosed in the elderly. Organo-axial volvulus is the most common type, followed by the mesentero-axial and the combined types. Depending on the etiology, gastric volvulus can also be classified as primary (idiopathic) or secondary. Treatment of acute gastric volvulus involves laparoscopic or endoscopic procedures/maneuvers, depending on the severity of symptoms and surgical eligibility of the patient. Chronic gastric volvulus is typically managed conservatively, although laparoscopic or endoscopic interventions can also be employed depending on the severity of presentation.
