    Background: 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...

    Background: The two basic techniques available in which to perform the gastrojejunal (GJ) anastomosis during a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGBP) are stapled and handsewn. Few outcomes differences have been noted between the two to recommend one as a superior approach. We present our...

    Background: Although lateral pancreaticojejunostomy (LPJ) is one of the most commonly performed procedures for the management of chronic obstructive pancreatitis, it is seldom performed laparoscopically. We report our experience of 17 consecutive laparoscopic LPJ (lap LPJ) and their outcome....

    Background: Different gastrojejunal anastomotic (GJA) techniques have been described in laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). There is conflicting data on whether one technique is superior to the other. We aimed to compare hand-sewn (HSA), circular-stapled (CSA) and linear-stapled (LSA)...

    Background: Placement of a primary gastrojejunal tube (GJT) can be technically challenging and often requires an open procedure to negotiate the tube past the duodenal sweep into the jejunum. The alternative approach is to first place a gastrostomy tube (GT), which is then changed to a GJT under...
