Abstract

Obesity and metabolic disorders are becoming big issues in Asia. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is still the most popular bariatric procedure in the world. However, in Asia, especially in Korea and Japan, gastric cancer is a common disease, and LRYGB may create an issue related to the bypassed stomach, in regard to the occurrence of a gastric disease as well as carcinoma.
