Treatment of Chronic leak after sleeve gastrectomy
Your options depend on the cause of the leak. Many are due to stricture of the sleeve in the lower part of the stomach. If this can't be fixed, your options include conversion to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, and Roux-en-Y fistulo-jejunostomy. Below is a reference to a recent article discussing the problem.
