Özet

In this era of modern technologies, laparoscopic adrenalectomy is a gold standard surgical treatment for benign adrenal lesions. However, being aware of its difficulties and their managements is a very important issue for the surgeons who are interested in minimal invasive surgery. In this article, we are presenting a case of a 57-year-old woman who has undergone laparoscopic left adrenalectomy and in the third postoperative month, had an acute gastric volvulus requiring surgical open treatment. To the best of our knowledge, this report is the first article about a gastric volvulus case after left laparoscopic adrenalectomy.
