This video demonstrates a gastric bypass using stapled anastomosis. The surgeon uses a linear stapler to create a Roux limb with a 75 cm biliary and 100 cm alimentary limbs. The Roux limb is brought up in an antecolic fashion and the gastrojejunostomy is created with a EEA stapler. The anvil of EEA is passed transorally. Petersen's defect is closed and the excess bowel is removed.
