A gastropexy involves tacking the stomach to the abdominal wall to prevent rotation. It can be done prophylactically to prevent gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) in at-risk dogs, or it can be performed after gastric derotation as part of the surgical treatment of GDV. As stated in "Managing gastric ...

Abstract

Prophylactic gastropexy is highly recommended in dogs predisposed to gastric dilatation and volvulus (GDV). Of the traditional coeliotomy (midline laparotomy) techniques, circumcostal and belt-loop gastropexy result in the strongest adhesions and lowest chance of developing GDV. These techniques...
