Mesenteric defect closure in laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: a randomized controlled trial

Abstract

Internal herniation is a potential complication following laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). Previous studies have shown that closure of mesenteric defects after LRYGB may reduce the incidence of internal herniation. However, controversy remains as to whether mesenteric defect closure is necessary to decrease the incidence of internal hernias… (More)
