Justine Lee, DACVECC, DABT; Garret Pachtinger, DACVECC; and Steve Mehler, DACVS review the general approach to the GDV patient.

You'll also learn the general surgical approach to the GDV, including how to untwist the twist, how to evaluate the integrity of the stomach, and a simple technique for gastric resection. The lecture will finish up with how to efficiently perform the most secure types of gastropexy.
