Gastrik volvulus is a rarely seen condition. caused by torsion of the stomach on its vertical or horizontal axis. While it may be seen as a surgical emergency in its acute form; nonspesific abdominal symptoms are usually seen in its chronic form. The etiology is absence or weakness of some ligaments of the stomach. Predisposing factors like diaphragmatic defects or paraosephageal hernia can be seen in some cases. We believe that laparoscopic anterior gas­tropexy is one of the best choice for the treatment of selected and suitable cases.
