Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An unusual case of a hypermobile gallbladder and liver is presented. The liver and gallbladder, supported only by a long midline falciform ligament, rotated freely from the right to the left upper quadrant. Because of a long gastrohepatic ligament and mesocolon, intermittent volvulus of the stomach and colon were associated findings.
