Gastrojejunal anastomotic strictures following laparoscopic Roux-en- Y gastric bypass surgery: analysis of 1291 patients

Background The development of an anastomotic stricture at the site of the gastrojejunostomy following Roux-en- Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) is associated with substantial morbidity. Various techniques are available for creating the gastrojejunal anastomosis, including hand-sewing and using a circular or linear stapler, to reduce complication rates. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of gastrojejunal anastomotic strictures in patients who underwent antecolic antegastric Roux-en- Y gastric bypass (AA-RYGBP) with the use of a linear stapler and to evaluate the outcomes of endoscopic pneumatic dilatation as a treatment option for patients with anastomotic stricture. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases Elsevier
