Linear-stapled gastrojejunostomy with transverse hand-sewn enterotomy closure significantly reduces strictures for laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Gastrojejunostomy (GJ) stricture is a common complication after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) for morbid obesity, and the optimal anastomotic technique remains uncertain. The objective of this study was to use cumulative summation (CUSUM) analysis to compare rates of gastrojejunostomy strictures after linear stapling with longitudinal versus… (More)
