This video shows the repair of a gastro-small bowel-colonic fistula caused by a gastrostomy tube. The patient had some problems with vomiting after gastric bypass and required gastrostomy tube to help manage her nutrition. Over the course of one year, the gastrostomy tube eroded through the gastric remnant into the roux limb and colon. This video shows how this was repaired laparoscopically.
