Staple Line Leak after Sleeve Gastrectomy


This video shows the view of a staple line leak following a sleeve gastrectomy. There is an over the scope clip attached to a distal cap attatchment of the scope in anticipation of an endoscopic closure. Pus can be seen draining into the endoscope from the associated abscess in the peritoneal cavity.
