A surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 15% of its original size, by removing a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature, resulting in a sleeve or tube-like structure. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach, although there could be some dilatation of the stomach later on in life. The procedure is generally performed laparoscopically and is irreversible.
It is a laparoscopic procedure involving 2 parts:
1- Part of the stomach is removed making a smaller stomach similar to a sleeve gastrectomy.
2- The first part of the intestine (duodenum) is divided just below the stomach and reattached to a loop of intestine about 2 meters further downstream. This has the effect of decreasing appetite, restricting meal sizes, and bypassing food away from the metabolically active part of the intestine.
BPD/DS is a complex procedure that tackles weight loss in 3 different ways:
1- A sleeve gastrectomy is performed.
2- Reroutes food away from the upper part of the small intestine, which is the natural path of digestion, cutting back on how many calories and nutrients your body can absorb.
3- Changing the normal way that bile and digestive juices break down food. One end of the small intestine is connected to the duodenum, near the bottom of the stomach. This cuts back on how many calories you absorb, causing still more weight loss.
A surgical procedure that involves bypassing a large section of the stomach and creating a small stomach pouch for digestion. Also, by-passing a part of the intestines so that a portion of the nutrients is discarded without being absorbed.
A Novel Metabolic/Bariatric Surgery operation based on mini gastric bypass operation and Santoro‘s operation in which a sleeve gastrectomy is followed by a side to side gastroileal anastmosis.
