The abstract should be clear, relative, descriptive, self-explanatory and no longer than 400 words. Do not include references or formulae or any special character in the abstract. An epidemic of obesity is sweeping across the Middle East with no good signs of control . It is associated with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and high cholesterol levels, as well as, snoring and sleep apnea . A large number of patients undergo bariatric surgeries every year in United Arab Emirates3. This explosion in bariatric surgery, inherently comes with an increase in the number of complications, secondary interventions and even reversal of procedures in about one fourth of the patients . It is now widely acknowledged that laparoscopic Omega Loop Bypass (OLB) is as effective as Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB), for treating obesity and associated comorbidities. OLB takes less time to perform, is technically less demanding and has shorter learning curve for the operating surgeon . Therefore, this procedure is gaining popularity and is rapidly spreading as a preferred choice of bariatric surgery. Despite a proven track record of nearly two decades, the risk of symptomatic bile reflux, marginal ulceration, severe malnutrition, chronic steatorrhea, hypoglycemic attacks and long-term risk of gastro-esophageal cancers are some of the commonly voiced concerns. These conditions usually can be managed conservatively, i.e., by behavioral and medical therapy, but occasionally, a surgical re-intervention may be needed. In extreme cases, a secondary procedure may consist of reversal to normal anatomy.
