Radiology plays and important role in the evaluation of patients who have undergone a bariatric surgical procedure. This chapter discusses the imaging appearance of complications after the most common bariatric surgeries, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, gastric banding, and sleeve gastrectomy. The fluoroscopic upper GI examination and computed tomography (CT) are the most commonly used imaging modalities for evaluating these patients. For each surgical procedure, fluoroscopic and/or CT images are used to illustrate the normal postoperative anatomy and to provide examples of common and uncommon complications seen in the early and late postoperative periods. Appropriate imaging technique is highlighted. A role for interventional radiology in the minimally invasive management of some of these complications is also briefly discussed.
