We describe our experience in a case of gastric herniation after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. This was a 66-year-old female, who presented to our clinic complaining of weight regain. Her past surgical history was significant for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy 7 years prior to this consultation. Initially she lost 80 pounds, but slowly she regained 25.
Her BMI at the time of the consultation was 46. She did not have any GERD symptoms.
An esophagogastroduodenoscopy, an upper GI and CT scan of the abdomen and chest demonstrated the stomach had migrated into the chest.
Decision was made to perform a laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair and conversion to a Roux en Y gastric bypass. The patient recovered well, and she was discharged home on postoperative day 2.
