ORTIZ, Douglas  and  GUEVARA, César. Gastrogastric fistula after laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. rev. colomb. cir. [online]. 2013, vol.28, n.3, pp.196-200. ISSN 2011-7582.

Gastrogastric fistula following a laparoscopic gastric bypass is a rare but potentially serious complication in the evolution of bariatric surgery, which can produce diverse clinical manifestations, including pain and regain of preopertive weigt. We report four cases of gastrogastric fistulae at two surgical services in the city of Bogotá occurring during the period January of 1996 and December of 2012.

Keywords : obesity; bariatric surgery; complications; gastric fistula.
