Abstract

Anastomotic stricture is a frequent complication after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (GBP). We evaluated the frequency of anastomotic stricture following laparoscopic GBP using a 21 mm. vs. a 25 mm circular stapler for construction of the gastrojejunostomy and the safety and efficacy of endoscopic balloon dilation in the management of anastomotic stricture. We reviewed data on 29 patients in whom anastomotic strictures developed after laparoscopic GBP. All strictures were managed with endoscopic balloon dilation using an 18 mm balloon catheter under fluoroscopic guidance. Main outcome measures were the number of anastomotic strictures in patients in whom the 21 mm (vs. 25 mm) circular stapler was used to create the gastrojejunostomy, time interval between the primary operation and symptoms, complications of endoscopic balloon dilation, the number of patients with resolution of obstructive symptoms, and body weight loss. There were 28 females with a mean age of 39 years and a mean body mass index of 48 kg/m2. Anastomotic stricture occurred significantly more frequently with the use of the 21 mm compared to the 25 mm circular stapler (26.8% vs. 8.8%, respectively; P
