Abstract

In order to prevent the Roux stasis syndrome that sometimes follows Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy after distal gastrectomy, a new type of reconstruction, called the uncut Roux-en-Y technique, has been reported. We successfully performed 42 laparoscopy-assisted uncut Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomies. Here we describe our technique and the initial outcome.

Key words

Uncut Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy Laparoscopic and laparoscopy-assisted surgery Distal gastrectomy
