This video demonstrates a laparoscopic gastric bypass using a hand-sewn anastomosis. The surgeon creates a 100 cm alimentary limb, which is passed in a retrocolic fashion and anastomosed to a 4 cm long gastric pouch using a two-layer hand-sewn anastomosis. The diameter of the gastrojejunostomy is calibrated with a 1.2 cm tube. The surgeon demonstrates the technique of closure of the defects, which may lead to postoperative hernia.
