Laparoscopic hand sewn regastrojejunostomy for complicated Roux-en-Y gastric bypassLaparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is a popular bariatric procedure associated to potential risk of late complications like anastomotic marginal ulceration, stricture, fistula formation, weight gain, and nutritional deficiencies [1–6].
Malrotation—an unexpected finding at laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: a video case reportLaparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is 1 of the most common procedures performed for severe obesity. Incidental anatomic abnormalities found at surgery are uncommon and can require an alternative operative approach. We present a video case report of a patient incidentally found to have midgut congenital malrotation at LRYGB.
Laparoscopic reduction of small bowel intussusception in a 33-week pregnant gastric bypass patient: surgical technique and review of literatureIntussusception is a rare etiology of bowel obstruction in adults and accounts for 1–3% of those cases. It is associated with an underlying mass such as a tumor or polyp in >80% of patients [1–4]. In gastric bypass patients, intussusception is an uncommon complication [5,6]. The common channel distal to the jejunojejunostomy is the usual site of intussusceptions. The direction of intussusception can be either antegrade or retrograde, but most reported cases are retrograde in nature. The probable etiology can include the presence of an ectopic pacemaker causing retrograde peristalsis.
