Bariatric surgery has undergone a rapid evolution over the last few years. Nowadays, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy represents a valuable alternative to laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, especially in patients with a very high BMI and in whom a gastric bypass procedure may be difficult. A thorough preoperative evaluation should always be performed in order to rule out any contraindication (e.g., hiatal hernia, gastroesophageal reflux). Here, we present a case of a female patient suffering from severe gastroesophageal reflux after sleeve gastrectomy associated with a major weight regain further to two bariatric surgeries.
