Eighty-one patients with primary Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for obesity underwent revisional surgery for staple-line failure. All patients (100%) were included in the follow-up. Two years later, patients had an excess weight loss of 77%; 91% of the patients had a final weight loss of 50% or more of their excess weight. Weight loss of revision patients was comparable to that reported for patients with primary operations. It was concluded that revision for staple line failure is clearly justified.
