Different studies have shown that revision of antireflux procedures to RYGB is safe and feasible for morbidly obese patients with weight gain or recurrent GERD symptoms. This video demonstrates a laparoscopic gastric bypass in a 56-year-old patient who had benefited from a laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication in 1999. The patient presents with a BMI of 40 and a diabetes mellitus resistant to treatment.
