The role of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy in the treatment of acute gastric volvulus

662-663

José Luis Romera Martínez, Adriana Ruano Campos, Andrés Sánchez Pernaute,

Gastric volvulus is an uncommon pathology that can occur acutely, in a chronic setting, or even as a casual finding. The primary kind occurs in 30% of patients. Secondary causes include hiatal hernia types II-III up to 70% of cases. The main treatment of acute gastric volvulus is gastric decompression, by means of a nasogastric tube (NGT) or endoscopy. However, it is not a procedure exempt from complications. Traditionally, definitive treatment involves surgery, consisting in hernia reduction with gastropexy/anti-reflux technique and/or hiatoplasty. We present the case of a 83-year-old woman with permanent atrial fibrillation, among other cardiovascular conditions.
