Abstract

Herein we describe two patients with medically refractory, severe reflux esophagitis after vertical banded gastroplasty for morbid obesity. Neither patient had symptoms of reflux preoperatively. Both patients underwent conversion to a vertical Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, an operation that prevents acid and peptic reflux and maintains a weight-reducing anatomy. Symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux are common (they occur in approximately 38% of patients) after vertical banded gastroplasty has been performed. Patients with unusually severe reflux may require operative management.
