Core Tip Is esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) necessary before bariatric surgery? The European Association of Endoscopic Surgery guidelines recommend EGD for all bariatric procedures. They strongly recommend it for Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) procedure. The British Obesity & Metabolic Surgery Society recommends routine perioperative EGD for patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy (SG), even if they are asymptomatic, but not for RYGB. It is recommended for symptomatic patients scheduled for RYGB. According to the International Sleeve Gastrectomy Expert Panel Consensus Statement, preoperative EGD is definitely recommended for patients scheduled for SG. On the other hand, its routine use for RYGB is controversial. The American Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Association recommends that endoscopy be performed only on symptomatic patients scheduled for bariatric surgery. We will seek an answer to this question.
