ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study on the endoscopic and radiologic management of complications in percutaneous gastrostomy and gastrojejunostomy with T-fastener gastropexy. In three cases, the unique complications of retained T-fasteners used for gastropexy in perpetuating infection around the feeding tube are illustrated. The study reveals the ignorance of gastroenterologists and trainee gastroenterology fellows over the potential complications of radiological procedures.

    The authors propose a reversible bilio-pancreatic diversion with access to the bypassed stomach. In the Messina technique, bilio-pancreatic diversion is accomplished by transecting the stomach without gastric resection, as already described by Resa et al. In addition, a temporary gastrostomy is...

    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...
