Abstract

Gastrointestinal hemorrhage is a potential perioperative complication after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. The surgeon performing laparoscopic gastric bypass should understand the need for early recognition and management of this complication, as it can be life-threatening. This paper discusses the incidence and clinical presentation of gastrointestinal hemorrhage, mechanisms for hemorrhage, management options, and possible methods of prevention.
