Intussusception after roux-en-y gastric bypass is an uncommon complication that could manifest in many configurations at the jejuno-jejunostomy, leading to intestinal obstruction or ischemia. In this video we will present a case of a rare manifestation of this complication whereby the distal corner of the biliopancreatic limb in the side-to-side jejune-jejunostomy becomes invaginated and leads to intermittent abdominal pain due to the compromised mesentery supply to this small bowel segment. The patient received surgery with a laparoscopic approach and the intussusception was reduced and the intussusceptum resected. Patient experienced prompt resolution of symptoms and has had no surgical complications.
