Gastrobronchial fistula is a very rare complication of sleeve gastrectomy. We present an interesting video showing laparoscopic repair of gastrobronchial fistula after sleeve gastrectomy in a 26 year old female. Patient had pneumonia which led to diagnosis of fistula. Patients symptom recurred after conservative management and we had to surgically repair the fistula. We also want to show through our video difficulties encountered while dissecting sleeve of stomach from left crus of diaphragm and subsequent complication of iatrogenic gastrotomy.
