Explanation:
I believe they are just trying to state that there is a lot of retention in the stomach, so stuff is not moving out like it should.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  geros: This is difficult to translate precisely, the above comment describes the situation. I would suggest something like "massive gastric dilatation [or distension] with retention of stomach contents" (though the last bit is not really necessary).

  -> I looked at the (few) German sites describing Retentionsmagen and they point to gastric retention and/or bowel obstruction!

agree  MMUlr: But here "gastric retention" may be correct; Retentionsmagen is the clinical finding as consequence of gastric retention. IMO

agree  Anne Schulz: You could use "gastric dilatation and retention", as dilatation is what characterizes a "retention stomach".
