Leaks after one anastomosis gastric bypass are managed based on the timing of presentation and the presence or absence of peritonitis. Reoperation is strongly advocated because of the potential severity of biliary peritonitis. Recently, nonoperative treatment is being increasingly employed, especially for staple line disruptions or unspecified leaks. We report successful usage of a covered esophageal stent in a gastrojejunostomy anastomosis leak with a favorable outcome.
