Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The number of Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (LRYGB) procedures for morbid obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus will increase worldwide, and therefore, an increase in perioperative morbidity can be anticipated. The authors present three cases based on different complications after LRYGB to demonstrate the diagnostic challenge that clinicians face in this particular group of patients. Also, a review of the literature covering the value of different imaging in these particular cases is provided by the authors. The role of imaging in the diagnostic process is discussed.
