Giant hiatal hernia with gastric volvulus complicating pneumonectomy.


Gastric volvulus is a potentially lethal condition. Pneumonectomy patients have decreased physiologic reserve, and thus they are more susceptible to morbidity and mortality from postoperative complications. We report successful management of a patient with hiatal hernia that resulted in acute gastric volvulus after left pneumonectomy.
