Sleeve gastrectomy is a commonly performed bariatric procedure that is complicated by stricture formation in approximately 0.5% of cases. Gastric sleeve surgery adverse events, which can result in strictures and leaks, are increasingly managed through a minimally invasive endoscopic approach. Endoscopic treatment with pneumatic balloon dilation and stent insertion has repeatedly proven to be effective and safe as the first line of management for this complication as in our case with two sites of stenosis and twisting because of severe adhesions due to previous scar tissue and acute pancreatitis. Surgical intervention should be considered only after the failure of endoscopic treatment.
