Bulging bypass

Doctors have reported the case of a man who developed a hernia through the opening created for his oesophagogastric bypass.

The 60-year-old presented to a clinic with concerns regarding the cosmetic results of the bypass he had had more than 53 years earlier.

When he was a child, an alkali burn resulting in complete oesophageal stenosis necessitated the surgery, performed by means of subcutaneous colonic interposition.
