A rare complication following laparoscopic Roux & Y gastric bypass: intussusception-case report.

Carilli S, Arısoy M, Alper A - Springerplus (2015)

Bottom Line: Currently only proven long term effective treatment of obesity is bariatric surgery.In this paper we would like to present an unexpected complication of Roux & Y gastric bypass: a retrograde intussusception located in the common limb 17 months after the surgery.As intussusception in adults usually originates from a leading point, there is no such an explanation following Roux & Y gastric bypass.

ABSTRACT
Obesity is a growing health problem in most parts of the world. Currently only proven long term effective treatment of obesity is bariatric surgery. Roux & Y gastric bypass together with sleeve gastrectomy are the most employed surgical techniques with acceptable metabolic and surgical complication rates. In this paper we would like to present an unexpected complication of Roux & Y gastric bypass: a retrograde intussusception located in the common limb 17 months after the surgery. As intussusception in adults usually originates from a leading point, there is no such an explanation following Roux & Y gastric bypass.

Fig2: Intussusception was located at 30 cm distal of the jejuno-jejunostomy anastomosis. White arrow indicates intussusception, black arrow indicates jejuno-jejunostomy anastomosis

Mentions: An emergent laparoscopic exploration was performed after 3 h of her admission. On exploration, a retrograde intussusception about 30 cm distal to jejuno-jejunostomy was identified (Fig. 2). Length of the invaginated segment was about 20 cm, which was reduced. There was no ischemic appearance but bilio-pancreatic limb was moderately dilated. Per oral feeding was started next morning and she was discharged on postoperative day 3 after an uneventful postoperative course.Fig. 2
