Review article including treatment algorithm: endoscopic treatment of luminal complications after bariatric surgery


Valli, P V; Gubler, C (2017). Review article including treatment algorithm: endoscopic treatment of luminal complications after bariatric surgery. Clinical Obesity, 7(2):115-122.

Abstract

The worldwide number of performed bariatric surgeries is increasing continuously, whereas laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy are conducted most frequently. Alongside with the usual post-operative and metabolic complications, luminal complications such as anastomotic bleeding, ulceration, leakage, fistula formation, enlargement and stenosis of the anastomosis may occur. Evolution of interventional endoscopy frequently allows endoscopic management of complications, avoiding surgical interventions in most cases. Here, we review the various luminal complications after bariatric surgery with a focus on their endoscopic management.
