Gastric Diverticulum after Gastric Bypass


This video shows a small pouch of gastric tissue near the gastro-jejunal anastomosis in a patient who had undergone a roux-en-y gastric pypass. This area was injected with contrast to document that it was blind ending and did not communicate with the remnant stomacy (ie, it was not a gastro gastric fistula)
