Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This report describes the case of a 52-year-old man with an obstructed para-oesophageal hiatus hernia who required a gastropexy, who postoperatively developed gastroparesis which inadequately responded to conventional prokinetics including erythromycin, metoclopramide, ondansetron, and domperidone. The patient's symptoms were relieved rapidly with a trial of mirtazapine. A review of related literature is presented.
