Gastric cancer after mini‐gastric bypass surgery: A case report and literature review
Gastric cancer in the stomach after Roux‐en‐Y gastric bypass or mini‐gastric bypass is rare, but a few cases have been reported since 1991, when the first case emerged. According to the literature, the interval between bypass surgery and the diagnosis of cancer ranged from 1 to 22 years. Given the difficulty of monitoring a bypassed stomach, the potential for gastric cancer must be considered, especially in countries with high incidence of this cancer. The literature reported the first case in the Asia–Pacific region – a woman developed advanced gastric cancer in her stomach 9 years after laparoscopic mini‐gastric bypass for morbid obesity.
