Stenosis is an important postoperative complication with an incidence rate of 0.7-4%. We present the case of a 42 year old female with a history of laparoscopic proximal gastrectomy and esophago-jejunostomy for chronic leak. The patient had a postoperative leak treated non operatively. Subsequently, she developed a stricture at the anastomosis not amenable of endoscopic dilatation. Upper GI revealed esophagojejunal junction stricture, for which she underwent laparoscopic stricturoplasty of the esophagojejunosty. There is limited evidence supporting the various surgical options available for management of post-LSG complications. The treatment of strictures following LSG should be adapted to the patient’s clinical status and endoscopic findings.
