Obesity is a widespread pathology among the population related to an increase in mortality and morbidity of patients. Bariatric surgery provides several forms of treatment for obese patients. Laparoscopic mini/one anastomosis gastric bypass (MGB/OAGB) is a recent low risk bariatric surgical procedure common in a large number of countries in the treatment of severe obesity. MGB/OAGB, compared to other bariatric surgery techniques, offers the significant technical improvement of requiring only one anastomosis in place of two. In this scenario, diagnostic imaging takes a significant role in the postoperative period, to evaluate the outcomes of surgical treatment and to detect possible complications both in early and late postoperative period. The prevalent radiological procedure to investigate suspicions of clinical post-operative complications is Computed tomography (CT) with oral and intravenous contrast administration. This pictorial essay aims to illustrate and identify normal radiological aspects of MGB/OAGB and post-surgery complication imaging features. We think that this article will serve to familiarize all the specialists with the diagnostic imaging of MGB/OAGB.

Abstract

Obesity is a widespread pathology among the population related to an increase in mortality and morbidity of patients. Bariatric surgery provides several forms of treatment for obese patients. Laparoscopic mini/one anastomosis gastric bypass (MGB/OAGB) is a recent low risk bariatric surgical procedure common in a large number of countries in the treatment of severe obesity. MGB/OAGB, compared to other bariatric surgery techniques, offers the significant technical improvement of requiring only one anastomosis in place of two. In this scenario, diagnostic imaging takes a significant role in the postoperative period, to evaluate the outcomes of surgical treatment and to detect possible complications both in early and late postoperative period. The prevalent radiological procedure to investigate suspicions of clinical post-operative complications is Computed tomography (CT) with oral and intravenous contrast administration. This pictorial essay aims to illustrate and identify normal radiological aspects of MGB/OAGB and post-surgery complication imaging features. We think that this article will serve to familiarize all the specialists with the diagnostic imaging of MGB/OAGB.
