This article presents the case of a 12 year old white female of abdominal symptoms. In August 1998, while on vacation, she contracted campylobacter which caused severe nausea, vomiting, cramps, and diarrhoea. Her mother and sister contracted the same illness and recovered quickly whilst the patient continued to suffer with upper abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. An Enterra neurostimulator was inserted but following a brief period of improvement, the symptoms recurred. This treatment was followed by the surgical insertion of a percutaneous jejunostomy tube and a gastrojejunostomy.

    Improved outcomes of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) have been demonstrated once pratice has moved beyond the learning curve. However, there is no evidence that experience has a favorable impact on the incidence of leaks. This study evaluated the incidence of staple-line leaks as...

    Background: Gastrojejunostomy stenosis after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is a common occurrence. The incidence varies widely among reported series. We evaluated the impact of circular stapler size on the rate of stenosis and weight loss. Methods: Our initial technique utilized a 21-mm...
