Abstract

In most centers, Upper Gastrointestinal series (UGI) following Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) is performed to rule out GJ anastomotic leak. According to the introduction of robotic technology associated with a hypothetical decrease of anastomotic complications, we aim to assess the validity and cost effectiveness of early routine UGI following robot-assisted RYGB.
