Cross-sectional imaging, with surgical correlation, of patients presenting with complications after remote bariatric surgery without bowel obstruction.

Abdominal Imaging 2015 October
Both restrictive and malabsorptive types of bariatric surgery may be associated with short- and long-term complications. The lack of small bowel obstruction is not necessarily indicative of a normal study, as a variety of non-obstructed complications exist. These include stenosis at the gastrojejunostomy, leaks, abscesses, hemorrhage, internal hernias, and gastric band erosions. Radiologists should be familiar with these complications for early diagnosis and intervention before symptoms become life threatening. An understanding of the intraoperative appearances of these complications may improve imaging descriptions and add value to radiological consults for surgeons. This review provides surgical correlations to the imaging features of post-bariatric complications without obstruction of the bowel.
