Revisional Surgery after LRYGB
Laparoscopic gastric bypass has proven long-term results and benefits. Our lack of understanding as to the pathophysiology of the operation underscores the variable response curve observed. It is unreasonable to assume patients who do not do well after surgery are merely “non-compliant.” In addition, there are inherent drawbacks to the anatomic construct that can lead to significant complications. Therefore, bariatric/metabolic surgeons should be prepared to restore, correct, augment, or reverse this operation depending on the needs of each individual patient.
