[Endoscopy after bariatric surgery: what the endoscopist must know].


Journal Article

Endoscopy is essential in the assessment and treatment of the bariatric patient, especially in the postoperative state. Since bariatric surgery is increasing exponentially, endoscopists should be familiar with the anatomy and how to manage possible complications.
