Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is currently the most commonly performed restrictive bariatric procedure. The number of SG cases has increased sharply and overtaken Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) due to its relative ease, safety, and good outcomes. However, complications such as de novo gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and weight regain after SG may require conversion to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), which has been described as a treatment option in those cases. Many techniques have been described for the conversion of SG to RYGB, among which the use of a linear or circular stapler for the gastrojejunal anastomosis creation has been described. We present two cases that required conversion of SG to RYGB for weight regain and intractable GERD; one using a linear stapled gastrojejunal anastomosis and the other using the circular stapler technique.
