Laparoscopic gastropexy for chronic intermittent gastric volvulus

, : Laparoscopic gastropexy for chronic intermittent gastric volvulus. Indian Journal of Gastroenterology 20(3): 111-112

The traditional surgical treatment of chronic gastric volvulus involves laparotomy for derotation of the stomach and its fixation to the patients. We describe a 36-year-old man with organoaxial gastric volvulus who was treated successfully with laparoscopic gastropexy. He is asymptomatic four months later.
