Case Report - Diaphragmatic eventration complicated by gastric volvulus with perforation

V Gupta, A Chandra

Abstract


Eventration of the diaphragm with gastric volvulus is uncommon. Gastric perforation in these cases is rare and usually associated with acute gastric volvulus with strangulation. We describe a case of diaphragmatic eventration with chronic gastric volvulus with gastric perforation without strangulation in an elderly man.
