Abstract

Despite the well-documented safety of laparoscopic RYGB, several short-term and long-term complications, with varying degrees of morbidity and mortality risk, are known to occur. Bariatric surgeons, all too familiar with these complications, should be knowledgeable in risk-reduction strategies to minimize the incidence of complication occurrence and recurrence. Bariatric and nonbariatric surgeons who evaluate and treat abdominal pain should be familiar with these complications to facilitate early recognition and intervention, thereby minimizing the associated morbidity and mortality.
