Thirty-two year-old woman underwent Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for morbid obesity followed by laparoscopic repair of leak at gastric pouch staple line and insertion of self-expanding stent. She eventually developed recurrent distal esophageal stenoses requiring multiple therapeutic endoscopies and stent placement. She underwent revisional surgery at 14 months, including resection of distal esophagus, gastric pouch and proximal roux limb, and reconstruction with Roux-en-Y esophagojejunostomy.
