First Described Case of Gastric Volvulus Following Open Cholecystectomy

Sindi Diko, Mohammed Elassa, Caitlin Russell, Jamshed Zuberi, Derick Christian


Gastric volvulus is a rare entity with the potential to become a surgical emergency if vital vascular supply is compromised. We present a case of a patient who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy converted to open; and after multiple admissions for intractable vomiting, she was found to have a secondary gastric volvulus during subsequent exploratory laparotomy. Due to dense adhesions, complete detorsion was deemed unsafe for the patient and a gastrojejunal bypass was created with subsequent complete resolution of symptoms. Patient has been doing well in follow-up visits.
