Abstract

The authors report on the diagnostic role of radiological imaging in the study of the patients who underwent gastric surgery. This kind of intervention is often followed by postoperative complications, so that accurate clinical-instrumental investigations are required. Routine controls both in the immediate postoperative period and during follow-up are useful especially when a neoplastic lesion was the underlying condition leading to surgery. Radiological imaging plays a fundamental role especially in evaluating such postoperative conditions as afferent and efferent loop syndromes. Radiology is thought to be essential to demonstrate the syndrome and to identify the mechanical/functional nature of the factors causing the disease, all of which are essential to an appropriate and safe therapy. Both the duration of follow-up (early and late controls) and the choice of contrast (water-soluble contrast medium or double contrast enema) are very important factors depending on the time of surgery and the clinical indication.
