Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is an increasingly popular restrictive bariatric procedure as attested by the 5,302 procedures performed in 2009, increasing worldwide to 13,557 in 2011 and to 24,190 in 2013. Among the early complications, gastric stricture is well described with a prevalence between 0.7 and 4.0% (Dhahri et al., 2010). The patient reported here had functional stenosis without any underlying anatomic stricture. This complication is rare and is the consequence of spiral stapling resulting in a gastric tube that is twisted from the start (Iannelli et al., 2014). Twisted sleeve gastrectomy resulting from spiral stapling exposes the patient to the risk of recurrent dysphagia, which has the appearance of stenosis on upper GI series but not on fibroscopy. Conversion to RY-GBP is one solution. At six months follow-up after conversion, our patient is symptom-free, with quality of life was rated excellent (a score greater than 9 on the BAROS questionnaire).El texto completo de este artículo está disponible en PDF.
