We present a unique and interesting video showing, Emergent Combined Laparoscopic & Thoracoscopic Approach for Tension Gastro-thorax with Gastric volvulus amid Bochdalek hernia in a 27-year-old male.

Adulthood Bochdalek hernia is rare. Only 173 cases have been reported
till the year 2010.
Tension gastrothorax is further rare with only 4 adult
cases reported and none operated by endoscopy.


Conventional management of Tension Gastro thorax recommends
early gastric decompression followed by definitive surgery.

Some of these procedures can lead to contamination and sepsis
limiting use of exogenous prosthesis.

Radio imaging:
1] Chest radiograph PA ; lateral views showed large air-fluid level in left hemithorax mimicking hydropneumothorax hence a CT was imperative

2] Computed tomography axial & sagittal view showed:
Arrow shows transition line between Antral and fundic air bubbles representing
the site of volvulus.

Cine loop imaging of coronal CT showed:
Grossly distended stomach, spleen, distal pancreas and transverse colon in left
thoracic cavity with a left posterolateral diaphragmatic defect of 6.7 cm.

Resultant apical compression of left lung and right mediastinal shift was noted.

Schematic picture exemplifies cine loop imaging findings of coronal CT.

– Based on clinico-radiological findings a diagnosis of Tension Gastro-thorax was established. Patient was subjected to emergency endoscopic definitive

– Tension Gastrothorax is a life threatening condition
– Emergency endoscopic definitive surgery is a safe and feasible option in young optimized patient.
