Nonsurgical endoscopic treatment of gastric volvulus in extremely high-risk surgical patients

894-895

Omar Abdel-lah Fernández, Felipe Parreño Manchado, Alberto Álvarez Delgado,

Gastric volvulus is a rare entity that occurs as a consequence of a rotation of the stomach of more than 180°, with gastric outlet obstruction and vascular compromise. It occurs secondary to diaphragmatic defects in most cases and is mainly reported in elderly patients who are fragile and present severe associated comorbidities. Here we present a nonsurgical treatment with the use of a single percutaneous endoscopic tube to perform gastropexy in patients with a high risk for surgery or inoperable patients. We present two cases that show that this therapeutic option is viable, with acceptable results under very specific clinical conditions.
