Fulminant gastrointestinal ischemia due to yeyunal volvulus

Jejunal volvules are a very rare condition, barely reported in the literature, that occur in relation to congenital (eg, intestinal duplication) or acquired disorders (eg, diaphragmatic hernias or tumors). In the event that it becomes complicated with an established intestinal ischemia, its prognosis is further overshadowed by the possible consequences of a complex surgery, given the high risk of short bowel syndrome. Being a PEG probe carrier does not seem to be related to the picture.
