(A) Representative photos of expanded and compressed springs with hooked surface features and (B) smooth surface. (C) Operative image showing Roux-en-y configuration with two blind Roux limbs with the hooked spring placed in the Roux limb on the left of the image and smooth spring placed in the Roux limb on the right of the image. (D) Operative image showing in-continuity model with hooked spring proximal to anastomosis and smooth spring distal to anastomosis. Arrowheads mark areas of India ink injected at the ends of the compressed springs.
