Gastric volvulus in a dog. There is extreme dilation
of the stomach as well as dislocation of the spleen to the right (arrow).
Additionally, the stomach is compressing the liver (F), which is dislocated
to the left. The image on the right corresponds to a craniocaudal view
of the thoracic and abdominal organs. The stomach can be seen, covered
with the omentum. The image below shows the stomach which has been lifted
to expose the point of torsion (arrow).
