PMID:  24459226     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
We present a case of a 30-year-old woman with a gangrenous right colon secondary to caecal volvulus, diagnosed postabdominoplasty. To our knowledge, this is the first case recorded in the literature. An emergency right hemicolectomy was performed and the patient had an unremarkable recovery. Given the severity of this incident, the diagnosis of caecal volvulus postabdominoplasty requires a high index of suspicion to allow prompt diagnosis and treatment.
