A 73-year-old man underwent laparoscopic repair of intrathoracic gastric volvulus after presenting with chest discomfort and inability to belch. After a few weeks, he developed early satiety, nausea and postprandial bloating and was found to have developed a tight stenosis 2.cm proximal to the pylorus. He underwent a series of endoscopies with balloon dilation with full resolution of symptoms and is doing well at 1-year follow-up. Gastric volvulus with ischemia resulting in a stricture has not been previously reported.
