In this key lecture, Dr. Higa presents the main principles for the initial management of patients with complications. He suggests that surgeons need to be proactive and should never hesitate to go for a second opinion. Prevention is preferable to damage control and the early recognition and aggressive treatment has better outcomes. He outlines these issues with key steps for the management of complications with examples of gastric bypass leaks, stents, VSG, GJ stenosis, marginal ulcer, and GG fistulas.
