Although rare, Porto mesenteric thrombosis is a well described complication after abdominal surgeries. In recent years the incidence of this condition has been on an increasing trend with the advent of laparoscopic surgery, particularly bariatric surgery. The pathogenesis of this condition can be explained by propensity of obese people for thrombotic events, intraoperative insult to portal tributaries and post operative dehydration. The clinical spectrum can vary from mild abdominal pain to severe bowel gangrene. Here in we are reporting a case of porto mesenteric thrombosis that occurred in an obese patient after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
