The aim of this educational poster is to illustrate the role of upper gastrointestinal series (UGS) in detecting the most common and some more rare complications in patients who underwent bariatric surgery procedures as • laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB) placement, • laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). Our centre (Radiology Unit - Department of Medicine - University Hospital of Padova, Italy) excels in the follow-up of patients who underwent bariatic surgery interventions (in the Week Surgery Unit of the same Hospital). For this reason, our database is rich in images of early and late complications, directly from our clinical practice. In this poster we are going to present, describe and comment the findings to the benefit of all radiologists, not just for those whose field of study is the gastro-intestinal radiology, adding some useful tips for conducting a good examination with high diagnostic relevance.

Abstract

The aim of this educational poster is to illustrate the role of upper gastrointestinal series (UGS) in detecting the most common and some more rare complications in patients who underwent bariatric surgery procedures as • laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB) placement, • laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). Our centre (Radiology Unit - Department of Medicine - University Hospital of Padova, Italy) excels in the follow-up of patients who underwent bariatic surgery interventions (in the Week Surgery Unit of the same Hospital). For this reason, our database is rich in images of early and late complications, directly from our clinical practice. In this poster we are going to present, describe and comment the findings to the benefit of all radiologists, not just for those whose field of study is the gastro-intestinal radiology, adding some useful tips for conducting a good examination with high diagnostic relevance.
