Abstract

The results of our study show that a positive UGI study for stricture has a specificity of 100 %. In terms of leak, which offers a much higher risk of significant morbidity and mortality, UGI was unable to find any on postoperative days 1 or 2. Based on the results of this study, our institution has stopped completing routine UGI on POD 1 following bariatric surgery.
