“Look mum, it’s a twister”: Gastric, splenic, intestinal, hepatic and lung torsion

For most practitioners, diagnosing a gastric torsion, the most commonly twisted organ, is a rare event.  The impact organ torsion has on the whold body depends on whether the whole or just part of the organ is involved and how "mission critical" that organ is to body function.  For example, a dog can survive many days with a solitary lung lobe torsion (because there are several other lobes that are unaffected) but an intestinal torsion around the root of the mesentery, can have peracute devastating effects.  In this presentation, the author hopes to highlight which pathophysiological events might be common to organs that undergo partial or complete torsion and will then consider each disease as a separate entity to highlight key diagnostic steps for each, along with concerns associated with each specific organ and the the current best treatment practices.
