Obesity is related with higher incidence of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Antireflux surgery has inadequate results when associated with obesity, due to migration and/or subsequent disruption of antireflux wrap. Gastric bypass, meanwhile, provides good control of gastroesophageal reflux. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the technical difficulty in performing gastric bypass in patients previously submitted to antireflux surgery, and its effectiveness in controlling gastroesophageal reflux. METHODS: Literature review was conducted between July to October 2016 in Medline database, using the following search strategy: ("Gastric bypass" OR "Roux-en-Y") AND ("Fundoplication" OR "Nissen ') AND ("Reoperation" OR "Reoperative" OR "Revisional" OR "Revision" OR "Complications")...
