A ventral marsupialisation technique is described which was used successfully to manage gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) in two large breed dogs. The procedure allowed the stomach to be completely and rapidly emptied and lavaged without peritoneal contamination. Drainage was maintained in the postoperative period for both dogs and the technique was expected to result in a permanent ventral gastropexy.
