Gastric volvulus is characterized by an abnormal rotation of the stomach typically 180o left to right around a line joining the relatively fixed pylorus and the esophagus. Gastric volvulus can be classified anatomically as organoaxial, mesenteroaxial or combined, and symptomatically as acute or chronic. Acute gastric volvulus is an extremely rare emergency surgical condition. The classical triad of gastric volvulus are severe nausea with a paradoxical inability to vomit, localized epigastric pain and an inability to pass a nasogastric tube. Gastric volvulus may be suspected on a plain radiological examination of the abdomen as well as by its symptoms. It is confirmed by the specific findings on the esophagogastroduodenoscopy. We report a case of acute mesenteroaxial gastric volvulus, that was treated using laparoscopic reduction and anterior gastropexy. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2006;33:46⁣49)
