Video Abstract Summary:
Most surgeons are aware of the challenge posed by Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) anatomy on the endoscopic evaluation and treatment of foregut pathology. In this video, we describe the successful endoscopic and fluoroscopic evaluation of the bypassed foregut in a RYGB patient using an ultra slim endoscope to traverse a 3mm GG fistula prior to fistula closure with the OverstitchTM endoscopic suturing system.
