ABSTRACT
Gastric rupture after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a rare complication. In most cases, it is associated with bystander-provided CPR, bag-mask ventilation, and difficult airway management. To the best of our knowledge, there has been only one previous case report in the literature regarding gastric rupture after CPR via supraglottic airway. We present a case of a gastroesophageal junction rupture secondary to CPR with supraglottic airway. Healthcare providers should consider that gastric rupture can be a complication from performing CPR.
Key words: Gastroesophageal junction, Rupture, Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, Laryngeal mask airways, Pneumoperitoneum
