We describe a patient who presented with acute small bowel obstruction five years after Roux-en-Y reconstruction. Computed tomography and operative exploration showed a retrograde intussusception at the gastrojejunostomy due to an intraluminal suture concretion. We describe the preoperative imaging, endoscopic and intraoperative findings, and review the literature.
