Laparoscopic bariatric surgery though growing rapidly in the past two decades has a high degree of immediate postoperative complications. We present three emergent complications in our series of first 100 cases in a private hospital in Oman which were tackled appropriately by our team of professionals. These complications were one staple line hemorrhage in laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, twist of gastric pouch in mini gastric bypass and leakage of gastrojejunal anastomosis in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. In all the three cases, thorough postoperative vigil has been stressed upon as an important factor in postoperative bariatric surgical care. In the gastric bypass case, despite the absence of definite findings in the radiological investigations, patient was taken to the operating room on high degree of clinical suspicion as a part of diagnostic algorithm.
