The article discusses a retrospective review of laparoscopic and open pyloromyotomies reported from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia by Obinna Adibe and colleagues. The results of the operations were similar in terms of operating time and duration of hospital stay. Mucosal perforation occurred in five patients in the laparoscopic group and in two in the open group. Incomplete pyloromyotomy occurred in three patients in the laparoscopic group versus none in the open group.

    Background: Gastrointestinal leak is a complication of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). Contrast studies may underdiagnose leaks, forcing surgeons to rely solely on clinical data. This study was designed to evaluate various clinical signs for detecting leakage after LRYGB. Methods:...
