Hiatal hernia with intrathoracic gastric volvulus as a rare cause of biliary obstruction


Hiatal hernia with intrathoracic gastric volvulus as a rare cause of biliary obstruction



Gastroenterologie Clinique et Biologique 16(1): 89-91



ISSN/ISBN: 0399-8320

PMID: 1537486

Gastric volvulus can complicate paraesophageal hiatal hernia. Acquired gastric torsion results in acute or chronic gastrointestinal symptoms. Biliary complications are possible but exceptional. A case of asymptomatic diaphragmatic hiatal hernia with intrathoracic gastric volvulus presenting as a cholestatic syndrome secondary to stretching and tension of the common bile duct in the diaphragmatic hiatus is reported. This observation emphasizes the possibility of direct relationship between two otherwise frequent diagnostics: hiatal hernia and biliary obstruction. Only one similar case has been reported to date.
