Plication followed by resection for intussusception after laparoscopic gastric bypass

      Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is the most commonly performed surgical intervention for morbid obesity. Internal hernias are the most common cause of postoperative bowel obstruction after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, with a reported incidence of 3.1% despite mesenteric defect closure [
