    Question Hernia surgery complications

    I am trying to find information on hiatal hernia surgery. A ct scan 36 hours post-surgery, while still in the hospital, showed the hiatal hernia was significantly increased in size, and a gastric volvulus was present. I can not find any medical articles about this type of occurrence.

    While in PACU from the initial hernia surgery, the patient was overmedicated- causing breathing issues and needing to be reintubated. I found one article on bagging pressure causing a gastric volvulus. "Bagging" was done before the reintubation. There are more details, but I am trying to determine how the hiatal hernia could reappear and be "significantly larger" within 36 hours of surgery, along with a now present gastric volvulus.

    Maybe I don't know what to look up to, but I keep coming to a dead-end. Any suggestions on where to look are appreciated.
