Abstract

Since the first description of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in 1994, surgeons have performed the gastrojejunal anastomosis using a circular end-to-end anastomosis (EEA) stapled technique. The circular stapled method may be favored as it allows for construction of a very small gastric pouch and represents a safe, consistent, and relatively simple method of anastomosis.
