Gastric volvulus is torsion of the stomach axis accompanied by obstruction and/or strangulation. It is a very rare condition, but it is considered a clinical emergency when it occurs acutely. Acute gastric volvulus requires an early diagnosis and prompt surgical treatment because a delayed diagnosis may lead to gastric obstruction, ischemia and necrosis. We experienced two cases of acute gastric volvulus due to diaphragmatic hernia and the patients were successfully treated with surgery. Here, we report on these two cases with the review of the reported literature on 26 adult cases of gastric volvulus in South Korea. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2011;42:165-169)
