Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is a highly effective therapy for morbid obesity. As the most common postoperative complication, marginal ulcers (MU) present a significant disease burden. The etiology of marginal ulcers after gastric bypass has not been clearly defined. The purpose of this study was to identify independent risk factors for MU.
