Gastric pneumatosis following cardiac surgery.

Abstract

Infiltration of the stomach wall by air, first described by Fraenkel in 1889 [3], is a very rare condition. We describe the first reported case of gastric pneumatosis occurring in a child with complex congenital heart disease after cardiac surgery.
