Incomplete mesentero-axial volvulus of the stomach

Discussion:

Mesentero-axial rotation or volvulus is less common in the adult population than organo-axial, and is most commonly incomplete (<180°). The complete form of meso-axial volvulus (>180°) is associated with severe obstruction and strangulation.

Barium study findings in this case were consistent with those at endoscopy.
