Caption: Twisted stomach. Coloured computed tomography scan of a section through the abdomen of a 70-year-old female patient with a twisted stomach (gastric volvulus, orange). Volvulus (twisting) of the stomach causes severe abdominal pain and vomiting. It can block the passage of food and can lead to strangulation, where the blood supply to the twisted part is cut off. This can lead to tissue death and gangrene, meaning the condition requires emergency surgery.
