Gastrogastric fistula (GGF) is a rare complication that occurs after a divided Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP). The incidence can be as high as 49% in patients who undergo non-divided or partially divided RYGBP. This is the case of a 33-year-old female patient who benefited of a gastric bypass 4 months earlier. After the procedure, the patient suffered from dysphagia. During preoperative work-up, a gastrogastric fistula was discovered. This video shows the laparoscopic treatment of the gastrogastric fistula.
