Method: Surgical report of a female patient, 53 years old who underwent laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Y De Roux after 1 year post-surgery complained of sudden abdominal pain with nausea, vomit and abdominal distention.
CT Scan revealed small bowel distention and pneumo-peritonium. Patient subsequently underwent laparotomy which revealed perforation of small bowel by the site filled with Phytobezoar. Post surgery, patient disclosed excessive daily intake of cereal bars.
Conclusion: The passage of rich intake of cereals without the active digestion by gastric acid post Gastric Bypass Sugery increases the formation of Phytobezoar.
