Abstract

GUPTA, V; CHANDRA, A  and  GUPTA, P. Diaphragmatic eventration complicated by gastric volvulus with perforation. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2012, vol.50, n.3, pp. 90-91. ISSN 2078-5151.

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.
