We report a case of a geriatric patient who underwent CABG and developed sigmoid volvulus (SV) with recurrence. SV is a rarely reported complication of CABG. Timely diagnosis, management, and follow-up are strictly advised, particularly in geriatric patients. Immediate surgical measures are required to prevent volvulusassociated ischemia. KEYWORDS abdominal obstruction, sigmoid colon, sigmoid volvulus
