This procedure involves creating a sleeve, surgically removing two-thirds of the stomach portion, bypassing the first 100- 150 cm of the small intestine, and joining it as a loop to the first part of the small gut, which is the duodenum.
This is a relatively newer procedure, mainly for patients with Diabetes Mellitus with or without obesity. This combines sleeve gastrectomy to provide the restrictive effect and the upper small intestinal bypass to provide a malabsorptive effect, thus leading to weight reduction and more metabolic effects like resolution of diabetes, PCOS, Sleep Apnoea.
It works by inducing a variety of intestinal hormonal changes, all of which lead to lowering blood sugar levels and improved insulin secretion, thus resolving type II diabetes mellitus even in patients who are not obese.
The advantage of this procedure is that the chances of frequent stools and esophageal reflux are less. Also, a single anastomosis is made, which can be examined via endoscopy.
It is a partially reversible/adjustable procedure, which works to its advantage in selecting this surgery, especially for treating type II diabetes mellitus.
