- Obesity has now become a worldwide problem, with numbers continuously rising. While conservative weight loss measures can be beneficial for some people, bariatric surgeries have opened up a new frontier for the management of obesity in a certain subset of patients eligible for it. Multiple bariatric procedures are currently available, and the choice of surgery is dependent on the individual patient’s specifications.
- Liver steatosis is a common complication of morbid obesity. As such, it can increase chances of operative complications. We present to you a case of liver steatosis in a morbidly obese patient in which we faced difficulty in the first attempt at sleeve gastrectomy and instead inserted a gastric balloon endoscopically as a bridge procedure for a later laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
- Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) has become one of the preferred surgical options for morbid obesity and has been proved effective [1,2]. Laparoscopic RYGB was first introduced by Wittgrove et al.  in 1994. Laparoscopic RYGB remains a challenging procedure because of postoperative complications associated with high morbidity and mortality. We describe 1 case of intussusception after laparoscopic RYGB.
